Mrs. Jamilah Al-Mutairi was appointed Team Leader Process Engineering in Mina Abdulla Refinery (MAB- KNPC) on July 2017. She has more than 17 years of rich and hands-on experience in process monitoring, troubleshooting, process improvements of Refinery process units, Utilities & Offsites and Energy Management. She holds Master degree in chemical engineering from Kuwait University in 2002.

She handled different process units responsibilities (conversion units, catalytic units and finally utilities and Energy Management System) . She played a key role in setting up the Energy Management System in KNPC and contributed in different studies for new KNPC projects

She played key role in developing one of the most advanced online tool for energy management in refineries. A detailed model of the steam, fuels, electricity, emissions, boiler feed water and condensates systems has been built, including all the interactions among these systems, real plant constraints and degrees of freedom of their operation. Other utilities systems have been also modeled for monitoring purposes such as air, nitrogen, flaring system, cooling water, sea water and hydrogen networks. This model is scheduled to perform automatic executions for the optimization of the entire system and is continually populated with validated, live plant data.
