Ronnie spent 6 years with one of the oil majors working at a large refinery, where she was responsible for optimising the production of all finished products.
One of Ronnie's particular successes at the refinery was to identify the impact of environmental changes to fuel specifications on additive performance two years ahead of schedule. Working with the additive suppliers, Ronnie prepared the refinery to produce the new specification fuel exactly on schedule, giving her product a significant competitive advantage and contributing significantly to her employer's revenues. A patent was applied for as a direct result of her work.
