Mr. Saqib, an alumnus from department of chemical engineering (MS), session, 2004 has won the prestigious” Energy Innovator of the year International Award”.

Mr. Saqib is leading the energy efficiency drive at the ADNOC Gas Processing, one of the largest gas processing companies in the world. He led numerous studies & initiatives and contributed to energy efficiency improvement at the operating facilities as well as in the projects. He has introduced numerous novels, innovative and creative initiatives. Mr. Saqib proposed and demonstrated viability of utility scale solar CSP integration with the thermal energy network of Oil & Gas Industry and underlined the vital role of large-scale renewables in energy intensive ultra-sour gas processing. His proposition to remove power block from Solar CSP indicated significant reduction in CAPEX and thermal efficiency improvement, resulting in lower unit cost of renewable energy. He conceptualized and developed methodology for process-units benchmarking, which identified substantial energy and monetary savings. He introduced integrated model-based concept of assured energy optimization in projects resulting in considerable OPEX and CAPEX reduction. Mr. Saqib is a prolific writer and a speaker, consistently advocating renewables and energy efficiency. He has twenty-five conference papers and publications (22 in just last four years), presented at international forums. Mr. Saqib won the AEE Energy Engineer of the Year award for the Middle East Region in 2016, the IEP National Excellence Award in 2017 and the best paper award at the SOGAT Conference in 2019. With master’s in chemical engineering and MBA, he is also a Chartered Engineer, CEM and CMVP.
