|1. Summary (Cover Letter) - CV/Resume Part 1 [Mandatory]
Over the past 20 years I have gained wide experience in all aspects of offshore surveys including:
Seismic surveys (2D, 3D and shallow seismic) (Survey and Seismic aspects)
Hydrographic surveys multibeam, tidal, current etc
Geotechnical investigations drop cores, vibrocores, CPT
Pipelay barges, anchor handling etc
Offshore heavy lift jacket installations
Geophysical surveys sidescan, SBP, gravity magnetics, etc Sites/Routes etc
ROV inspection surveys pipeline, jacket etc.
ROV construction support piledriving, mattress installation, metrology, etc
ROV pipelay support including OOS and metrology
Survey support to dive teams
Survey support for dredging and trenching
In the early years I consistently cross-trained in surveying, survey engineering, acoustics, navigation, geophysics, hydrography, etc, and developed a good understanding of the core techniques used. I have worked as surveyor, survey engineer, observer, underwater engineer, acoustics engineer/surveyor, etc. I have been involved in job pre-planning, vessel mobilisations and calibrations, ongoing offshore projects, reporting/charting, etc
Geographical areas worked include the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico, Caspian, Mediterranean, Persian Gulf, India, SE Asia, and West Africa.
I recent years I have moved on from surveyor/engineer to more senior roles as Party Chief, Client Representative and Project Manager - I retain a good working knowledge of the systems, software, and techniques in use, and continue to keep my knowledge current. These more senior roles have familiarised me with the contractual aspects of survey jobs and given me an awareness of the commercial side of the business. I have been involved in the on-the-job implementation and maintenance of various HSE regimes.
