UNSW Chemical Sciences and Engineering graduate Ross Dunbar has been recognised for his impressive work in oil and gas production operations with a prestigious industry award.

Ross, 27, has won the Alstom Award for outstanding contribution to industry from a chemical engineer under the age of 30 for his work with global oil and gas group ExxonMobil in Victoria.

The award recognises Ross' achievements in improving production and process efficiency at Exxon-Mobil's Longford gas plant in the southern Victorian regional centre of Sale.

"The bulk of the work was working on the gas plant to improve the production and process efficiency , to reduce the amount of energy it took to produce the condensate products and maximise the yield of the more lucrative LPG components," Ross said.
