Fernando R. Alvarez

Job Title: Project Manager Commissioning Engineer and Third Party Inspector

I have over 38 years of experience in the oil and gas industry and heavy commercial industry. I have over 27 years of experience in managing, supervising, and directing projects and fabrication in shops and in the field. I am bilingual, fluent in reading, writing and speaking Spanish.

I was responsible for daily field construction of large and small individual projects, enforcing company policies, procedures, fabrication, QA and QC systems, requirements, following specifications provided by the client.

I have currently managed projects and staff ranging from $1.5 million to $250 million plus projects and extra $50million, grand total upon closing contract.

My daily duties as project manager, I fulfilled numerous amounts of roles in the oil and gas industry in fabrication shops and gas plants. As project manager, I supervised and directed daily tasks pertaining to construction in shops and fields with subcontractors and staff of approximately 1,000 to 1,900 employees.

I have coordinated spool piping fabrication, coatings and deliveries to meet deadlines in a timely manner. All job packages performed under my supervision were inspected during and after fabrication and coatings prior to being delivered from fabrication and coating shops in Corpus Christi, Victoria, Houston area Paris, and Port Arthur, TX and Baton Rouge, New Iberia, and Homa, LA. I have reviewed drawings for RFI’s and revisions as per client as per revisions or design changes.

As project manager, I performed walk through inspections in every unit and every elevation regardless of the levels in unit as per federal and state guidelines pertaining to all groundwork, dirt, framing, rebar, concrete, steel erection, installing rotating/heavy equipment/electrical units, piping, valves, tanks, towers, vessels, pipe racks, cable trays, conduit, catwalks, insulation, and paint coatings as required per scope of work. I also took part in weekly safety meetings and random tool box safety meetings, using fluent Spanish and English so all employees understand the dangers and preventing unsafe acts during the projects. I make sure everyone understands the tasks prior to its commencement.


With the 38 years plus of experience in the industry, I have learned that SAFETY and TIME are of the essence on a daily basis. I look forward to providing all my expertise and hard work and ethics pertaining to the oil and gas industry. I am currently available at this time. I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

Best Regards,

Fernando Alvarez
