PROFILE A time served pipefitter advancing to site supervision and project management with 25+ years’ experience of his trade gained in the Oil and Gas, Petro-Chemical and Power industry sectors with having experience in fabrication shops, site work and offshore modules (including FPSO’s) in the U.K and Overseas. Using the skills I have acquired, I am ready to apply them with the aim of giving 100% commitment to the right company who shares my goal of being able to complete a project accident free, promoting a pro-active safety culture and by example to motivate the team to achieve targets in a safe, economical and efficient manner. My experience encompasses a wide variety of skills including field support to contractors, engaging contractors with safety issues, helping contractors adhere to project and legislative requirements and promoting a healthy relationship between Project Management, EPC personnel and contractors.

Safety issues being of principal importance to me, I feel I can only be employed by a company who share, support and encourage the spirit and practice of H.S.E. mandates. I am a team player and would give 100% cooperation to that team to bring the Project I am assigned, to its conclusion.
