Arpit Mishra graduated from Colorado School of Mines with a MS and BS in Chemical Engineering. Arpit spent three years as a researcher for the Samaniuk group whose focus was studying the rheology of interfacial systems. During his research, he also worked with the group to publish a paper on the studies he performed with the group. Arpit begins his career with Parv Process Consulting 

​Our Namesake

S. A. Parvin, "Parv", was my grandfather.  A man who stood for honesty, loyalty, friendship, integrity, and perseverance.  He always strived to earn and keep a good reputation by treating others fairly and with respect.  He always made you feel like the most important person in the room.  It is those same values that we aim to uphold within Parv Consulting.  

Sue Weisenburger has ver twenty-five years of experience as a Process Engineer completing projects from the conceptual phase through to construction, start-up and commissioning. Sue has worked on or lead the process engineering and design for multiple upstream oil and gas, midstream and refining facilities including wellpads, gathering systems, central processing plants, terminals, tank

farms, compressor stations, gas plants, NGL recovery, turbo-expanders, fractionation, condensate stabilization and gas treating. Her key project experience includes the development of innovative designs for standard well pad and compressor stations; a 35,000 bpd fractionation plant; a 150 MMSCFD gas plant expansion; and two 400 MMSCFD turbo-expander plants. She has extensive knowledge of ASME, NFPA, API, ANSI and other common industry codes and standards. 


He was an accomplished golfer and has been recognized in the Book of Golf for his many holes-in-one.​  He was a World War II B-17G pilot and flew several bombing missions over Germany before being shot down and captured as a POW.  After 13 months as a POW, he was freed by General Patton.  He was awarded a purple heart.  More details on his war experiences are available by request.

In God We Trust -- quite simply, on the outside looking in, we chose likely the worst time in the last 30 years to start an engineering/consulting firm. The decision was not made lightly and it took a struggle of walking in faith versus having the security of a paycheck. In the midst of the worst downturn in over 30 years (2nd quarter of 2016), we followed His leading and I decided to voluntarily quit my job to start this endeavor. Melissa said it best, "God's got this."  She was right. We're thankful and continue to say "In God We Trust", because we do.

​Braedy Tanner graduated from Colorado School of Mines with a MS in Engineering and Technology Management. He holds a BS in Chemical Engineering from the same institution and worked with Eric on fractionation train design for his senior design project. Braedy spent two years during his undergraduate studies as a researcher with the Center for Hydrate Research, focusing on the

rheology of low-pressure clathrate hydrate systems. During this time, he developed an innovative visual rheometer cell, allowing for visualization of hydrate development in rheological systems. Braedy begins his career with Parv Process Consulting and Engineering and looks forward to the many challenging and rewarding opportunities ahead of him.

​Eric Parvin, PE, Owner/President, began his career in 1997, primarily as a contracting engineer in his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. After a client-request to relocate to Denver in 2009, he became a Senior Process Consultant and later Process Engineering Department Manager.
