30 years experience in oil & gas, petro-chemical, bridges, and marine new-build/repair industries.

My extensive experience within the field of corrosion control began in my youth where I worked as an applicator prior to entering Painting Supervision / QA Inspection. This has given me hands on experience which along with my technical inspection / supervisory skills enables me to achieve a high quality end result. I am well travelled having worked on marine & offshore oil & gas new build and refurbishment projects worldwide. My previous employers note me as being trustworthy, enthusiastic, loyal and diligent. Furthermore my employer references will substantiate this.

I have long-term experience working as part of an owner’s management supervision team in a Quality Inspector capacity. Supervising inspection workforce and ensuring that the execution of company policy and client / owners agreed specification, relevant standards, and codes of practice as well as safety regulations are all adhered to. Working in close liaison with owner’s site or offshore team, yard or base production, QA dept, class surveyors, coating manufacture’s inspection team and other professionals.

Professional approval certificates have been attained during my working career as a Supervisor permitting me to be accredited by national and International organisations; NACE, ICORR, BGAS / TWI. My training and certification along with long term experience enable me to work with expertise on pipe coatings and linings as well as topsides structural steelwork, live plant refinery, LNG and petro-chemical. Tanks, pipe-work, vessels, marine, new-build & refurbishment -re-coat, both in onshore / offshore oil& gas industries and also, bridges within the civil engineering industry,

A lengthy professional background has benefited me in gaining vast familiarity with many varied types of surface treatments and application of sophisticated coatings and linings during fabrication-new-build construction and refurbishment –re-coat projects. My past experience has provided me with valuable knowledge enabling me to identify and concentrate on specific areas that may cause coating failure in service if these are not addressed during the initial phase of the project.

My previous employment has been of a project contract nature hence the many positions that are stated within my CV. I have always completed and fulfilled the conditions of all contractual obligations successfully and have been employed again by previous employers on several occasions
