KERR McGEE North Sea Ltd
Offshore Structural Designer
During the Re-floating Project of the Hutton
TLP, I assisted the Tow Master in the platform survey. Followed by the AutoCAD
presentation of the results and structural design for the installation of
proposed towing pad eyes.
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.
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 Teeside
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
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.
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
