- What will the audience gain from attending your webinar?
This is a very exciting webinar where the delegates will gain an increased awareness of how pressurised pipelines can be repaired using state of the art intervention and isolation tools. The webinar will then conclude with a case study highlighting how an anchor-damaged section of pipe was removed safely without depressurising or flooding the entire 780km pipeline.
- What is your favourite part about presenting to a live audience?
It’s definitely the questions and answer session, it’s great to engage with the audience and you can always be guaranteed interesting questions from the delegates.
- What was your inspiration to get into the industry?
My early career began working on projects from Dive Support Vessels with saturation divers and ROVs which really interested me. Since joining STATS Group in 2005, I have been involved in the design, development and delivery of bespoke engineered pipeline isolation, repair and recovery solutions.
