Over 42 years of experience working in the pipeline industry. I have been an Acting Subject Matter Expert and Technical Authority regarding the design/construction of pipeline systems in accordance with codes, standards, and requirements.

My expertise includes functional management of over 300 engineers and technical staff; program, project, and construction management; due diligence and feasibility studies; route selection, piping and facility design; estimating; hydraulic analysis; contract and material specifications; code compliance audits and evaluations; and permit acquisitions.

I’ve had responsibility for staff managing numerous pipelines throughout North and South America for pipeline systems from 1 to over 1,000 miles in length carrying natural and industrial gases, and liquid hydrocarbons. Many project scopes were from conception, through design and construction, to commissioning.

– As the Director of Onshore Services for Cronus Technology, my charge is to help build an engineering services group that will offer onshore pipeline system expertise to clients throughout the United States. To date, our department has performed feasibility studies, constructability reports, cost estimates, detail design, and construction management for pipeline gathering and transmission and pump station projects in Texas, Oklahoma, and along the Gulf Coast.
