Example recent of delivery and achievements
Full‐scale global deployment of non‐intrusive inspection program for
pressure vessel integrity endorsement across Upstream that delivered $500
million in operations cash and eliminated over 600 confined space entries
over a 3-year period.
Reduced onshore buried piping leaks over a 7-year period from 400 per year
to 35 to 40 annually by implementation of a long-term IM program (included
full‐scale computerized risk model and Geographic Information System).
Developed a rapid consequence modelling methodology for integrity
prioritization of well sites that identified over 95% of sites as low
consequence which allowed limited to no spend on IM programs.
Developed and implemented:
Onshore and offshore HAZMAT security plan for 25,000 plus well sites and
DOT pipeline compliance programs for 192/195 gathering and transmission
Led incident investigation of ground disturbance incidents and major
revision of company practice that reduced line strike incidents by 75%.
Optimized ASME Section VIII pressure vessel compliance initiatives across
several code and non-code states that resulted in multimillion dollar
Delivered the following bp first-ever innovations:
Practice for global implementation of Unmanned Aerial Systems for
security, and cornerstone of top-down emissions monitoring strategy.
Utilization of x-ray back-scatter defence industry technology for
In‐service robotic (ROV) internal inspection of Crude Oil Storage and
condensate tanks in Azerbaijan that eliminated removal from service.
Deployment of Gecko rapid robotic scanner at BPX leading to 300%
pressure vessel scanning productivity.
Co-led with Supply Chain Management development of global contracting
strategy that optimized topsides inspection resulting in a 35% improvement
Delivery of revolutionary bp practice that provided alternatives to costly
pre-service wall thickness (UT) measurement (baselining) which yielded a
cost savings of $700K to $1 million per major project.
