Offshore

 

 

 

I have worked at sea, in the Sub-Sea / Offshore Oil industry for over thirty-five years, basically all my working life, – I have done nothing else.

Currently, I’m engaged as an Offshore Client Rep for Subsea Installations, specializing in Diving, ROV, Pipe-Lay,  & Heavy Lift Operations.   I work for a time offshore, & then we have time off to go cruising.  The schedules are not set in stone, but we can more-or-less choose when to work & when to cruise.  I believe we are very fortunate and I thank God for these opportunities.

During my career,  I have worked in these various capacities:  Client Site Representative, Sub-Sea Consultant, Offshore Manager, Diving Superintendent,  Diving Safety Specialist,  Bell Diving Supervisor,  Saturation Diver,  ADS pilot,  & Air Diver.

 

 

 

Currently, (July-August, 2017) I’m working in Norway as the Delivery Superintendent for the new-build Diving Support Vessel KREUZ CHALLENGER

I started working in the Mersey Docks in Liverpool in 1983, not the easiest of places considering my Canadian accent and 4 million unemployed in Britain at the time.  Passion will take you anywhere though.
