I have over thirteen years well services experience, my background is mainly slickline but I also have experience working as part of coiled tubing / pumping and e-line crews. From 2007 to March 2009 I worked on the BP Miller decommissioning project, where I supervised multi-skilled crews carrying out slickline, coil tubing, fluid pumping and cementing operations. I am also an offshore safety rep. My roles and responsibilities include ensuring all well-site operations are carried out safely, efficiently and to the client’s requirements. I am responsible for the accurate reporting of all operations and I have experience of Open Wells, DIMS and Well View reporting systems. I also have experience of electric line, coiled tubing, nitrogen and fluid pumping, xmas tree / wellhead maintenance and memory gauges.

In January 2010 I formed a limited company and I am now working as a contractor.
