Deputy CEO - Operations

“Sawasdee-krub. Hi, I’m Steve Gibson and I’m in charge of operations. Welcome to the SPRC family.

In April 2005, we launched an Incident and Injury Free initiative, called IIF. I’m proud to say that through this program with the SPRC family we’ve created an organizational culture and environment that promotes world class safety, reliability, and performance.

The objective is to ensure both personal and process safety:

For personal safety - we do everything we can to make sure all staff and all contractors go home safely to their families each and every day
For process safety - the focus starts with good design, strong engineering oversight, robust operation procedures and finally validated effective training to make sure we prevent any incident or uncontrolled release from our facilities.

SPRC is a Complex Catalytic Cracking Refinery located in the Rayong province with a throughput of up to 175,000 barrels a day. We were able to buy a wide range of crudes and convert them into value-added products, such as LPG, gasoline, jet, diesel as well as some fuel oil and bitumen. We also have the strategic advantage of being located within proximity to some of Thailand’s petrochemical companies with good port, road, and pipeline facilities.

The foundation of good performance is having a good Refinery Management System. This management system ensures that we have businesses that are fit for purpose, that are monitored and continuously improved to help us achieve sustained superior performance. We also routinely measure a lot of Key Performance Indicators. We also participate in the Solomon Associates surveys every two years which benchmarks our performance.

In SPRC, we have a strong Technical Services Agreement with our majority shareholder Chevron. Through this technical service agreement and with the focus of our employees, we strive to maintain first quartile performance in both utilization and availability.

At SPRC, a Sustainable Development Program is our commitment to ensure we have all activities positively contributing towards the People, Planet, and Profit.

Thank you.”
