  • Roelof Heezen | Executive Vice President

    Welcome to SASREF’s website. My name is Roelof Heezen, the Vice President of SASREF. I am a Dutch national and seconded by Shell to SASREF. Shell had brought a number of state of the art refining technology into SASREF covering hydrocracking, distillation, visbreaking, hydrogen manufacturing and others. Our operation and technical staff are highly trained using the latest training simulator tools and coached by highly experienced mentors. We had also built expertise in the engineering areas covering refinery technology and processes, instrumentation, rotating/mechanical, electrical, civil and projects. Therefore, SASREF is indeed the first-choice employer for you to build your long term and successful career with us.
