1992       CAPE CONTRACTS LIMITED

North Shields,  Tyne & Wear,  United Kingdom

Using a draughting table to apply pencil to transparent film I prepared the layout and structural support fabrication drawings for light & heavy gauge ducting on various process and accommodation modules under construction in the North East of England.

Starting with project specification and single line diagrammatic I handled the complete modules alone on the following  platforms Brae ‘B’ and East Piper ‘B’, Ravenspurn, Saltire and Tiffany Platforms.

On a previous visit to Cape Contracts I handled the layout and construction drawings of  the ducting and structural fan supports on BP's South East Forties offshore platform modules under construction on Teesside.

When my duties were competed BP asked me to aid them in problem solving during installation and commissioning of the accommodation & process systems

Other Relevant Experience

Originally from a shipbuilding background, I have considerable and varied experience in Marine & Offshore Design and possess a disciplined approach including the motivation to work without supervision or as a member of a project team dedicated to the ultimate goal.

I have been very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to gain in depth experience in a variety of other disciplines one of which has been HVAC in both the Shipbuilding and Offshore Industries.

In 1975 I worked on the layout & fabrication detailing for the drilling & process areas on the SEDCO 471 Drillship in Halifax, Nova Scotia, followed in 1985 at Deborah Services on Tyneside when I handled the fabrication detailing on three process modules for Marathons Brea B platform.

The following year I was engaged by Cape Contracts also on Tyneside to do a similar project including the Plant Room layout & structural support design, when BP retained my services till load out for installation trouble shooting on their South East Forties platform modules on Teesside

In 1988 I visited Durban in South Africa to assist with the set-up of DSL Contracts offshore division who were also engaged in the Fire Wall design, fabrication & erection as well as the HVAC and resulting interface with A0, A60 and H120 walls and doors.

Cape Contracts recalled me in 1991 to handle the process & accommodation systems on the Saltire, Tiffany, Piper B and Ravenspurn platforms often working from and modifying the Flow Line Diagrams as the projects progressed.

In 1992 valuable experience was gained with trips offshore to the Piper B platform during its final stages of HVAC Commissioning leading up to the production of first oil. During 1993 I visited Abu Dhabi for Booth Industries to supervise the erection of A60 & H120 Firewalls for final certification.

Further commissioning was handled in Holland on the drilling facilities of the Alba Project prior to load out, followed by a trip to the Shell Auk platform to investigate area pressurisation differentials to compile a report on the safety standards with recommended modifications
