I have more than 25 years of experience, including 37 patents, with experience in all aspects of technical development and management of multi-million dollar projects from initial concept development through field installation. I have a solid working knowledge of the project engineering including vendor and contractor evaluation and liaison between clients, contractors and vendors.

Specific capabilities include:

  • Concept and feasibility studies for systems pertaining to subsea or floating production systems including the development of new hardware, adaptation of existing hardware to new applications, and development of procedures for implementation of unique offshore subsea production systems.
  • Field development planning for deepwater marginal fields utilizing subsea and floating production systems. Establishment and evaluation of candidate scenarios in terms of cost, schedule, and technical trade-off analysis leading toward definition of a preferred system. Examination of field installation methodology with emphasis on ROV intervention and technology.
  • Coordination and management of drilling and subsea equipment project interfaces from conceptual design through equipment testing and installation. Also, coordination of subsea tree/wellhead and manifold interfaces with deepwater subsea template systems; and coordination of subsea tree/wellhead interfaces with FPS, pipeline and riser subsystems to deepwater floating production facilities, and review of ROV intervention requirements.
  • Offshore and onshore supervision of subsea hardware deployment including factory acceptance testing (FAT) and system integration testing (SIT) of subsea trees, manifolds and templates. Developed test procedures, offshore installation procedures, recommendations for spares, and follow-up reporting of the installation process. On-site technical advisory support during offshore installation operations.
  • Project management including project team assembly, tracking of budgets and schedules, client/contractor liaison, review and evaluation of construction bids, periodic reporting, and engineering supervision.
