10:45 AM Operational Excellence: Standardization and Optimization at Kinder Morgan Terminals

Kinder Morgan Terminals owns and operates approximately 60 terminals in North America – over 1900 storage tanks in total – most of which were previously built and operated by other companies. Early on, each facility operated independently, which caused a variety of issues long term. Earl Crochet, Director of Engineering and Operational Optimization at Kinder Morgan, will discuss how the company started on a journey towards Operational Excellence through standardization and optimization across their terminals:
• Instilling core SQE principals in the workforce and building an SQE culture
• Standardizing reliability and maintenance of operational assets
• How operational, financial, and customer excellence work together to
- Reduce TRIR from over 5 to 1
- Reduce spills and contamination
- Increase revenue and EBITDA
