ACCOMPLISHMENTS.



• Design Project Management



? Rubicon Offshore International



? Involved in the conversion of the vessel “Rubicon Intrepid” to an FPSO for Philippines.



? Conversion of the Tanker “RUBICON INTREPID” to RUBICON INTREPID FPSO. (The vessel was a single hull tanker with a carrying capacity of 450K barrels. She has been converted to a dynamically positioned FPSO with single point mooring with 25K BPD production capacity.) All the modeling, drafting and analysis were done single handedly using Autodesk Inventor. There is to this date no structural draftsman in the company.

? I consider this a major achievement as to single handedly being the Technical department for a shipping company and am proud to have managed the conversion design project for the major structural items as well as interface piping with the least help.

? Drafted out the basic conversion scope for the project.
