With over 25 years’ experience as a chartered engineer in both the power generation and oil and gas industry, Colin has worked across numerous UKCS projects.
With a career spanning over 25 years in both the power generation and oil and gas industries, Colin is a highly respected senior technical manager with considerable drilling and engineering experience. Since moving into oil and gas in 1989 he has worked primarily on UKCS projects including major gas compression installations and topside brownfield projects, as well as consulting on international scopes. Promoted from control and instrument engineer to chief engineer, then head of engineering, Colin also held the position of technical director and business manager, reflecting the broad range of experience gained on both fixed and floating facilities.
Colin's proven reputation for building teams that consistently deliver improved performance is exemplified by work undertaken on a contract at a previous company. Having been advised that a contract was to be tendered on the open market, Colin was asked to take over the contract leadership and his commitment over 15 months to resolve the issues resulted in the client choosing to renegotiate instead. This attitude to finding mutually workable solutions underpins the foundation of Step Change Engineering.
