My name is Thomas Cannon and I have been employed in the industrial construction, marine construction, and offshore oilfield industry for over 25 years. Along with my CWI and API certifications I also have training to ASNT SNT-TC-1A Level ll MT (Magnetic Particle), Level ll PT (Dye Penetrant), Level II RFI (Radiographic Film Interpretation).

Until recently my employment was with many varied companies as a QC Field Inspector of pressure pipe welds, pressure vessels, tank farms and structural welds at various power plants and refineries across the U.S using B31.3, B31.1 and D1.1 codes. My duties include ensuring weld map continuity, enforcing code requirement during the fit-up and welding process. Documentation of NCR and follow-up compliance to standards. Ensuring the proper specified type of structural supports were installed and in the required location, mechanical walk-down of systems to ensure system integrity prior to hydro testing of completed systems. Hydro testing of high/low pressure piping circuits/systems.

In the past I worked as a combo-pipe welder and with 20 years of experience at various projects including oil/gas pipelines new and in-service, offshore oil/gas exploration/production, power plants (gas/oil and bio-mass). New construction of ethanol and bio-diesel facilities, and desalination plants on overseas projects.

During the 1990’s I worked several years as a boiler pressure vessel welder and have held pipe welding certification in 6G and 6G Restricted with the USCG, ABS, ASME, and Lloyd’s Register of Shipping. I have been an inspector of both land-based and maritime boiler systems within the continental North America, South/Central America, Europe and Asia.

With the experience and knowledge of the construction industry that I have gained I will be an asset to your inspection and construction organization. I am ready and willing to travel wherever and whenever your organization requires.
