Craig is a mechanical and structural reliability engineer with twenty years of experience, primarily in deep-water riser and pipeline projects. Since September 2011, he has been Vice President and Senior Consultant at RiserTec, Inc., providing consultancy services for riser, pipeline, umbilical, mooring, tendon and related subsea equipment projects. From May 2007 through March 2012, Craig was Riser & Pipeline Contract Manager in Petrobras America’s Walker Ridge Asset Department where he was responsible for managing all aspects (technical and commercial) of several major offshore construction contracts for the Cascade & Chinook project. These included the EPCI of five free-standing hybrid riser towers, which were the deepest risers in the world, and the first of their type in the Gulf of Mexico. He was also responsible for managing the fabrication, installation, and pre-commissioning of four production flowlines and a 54-mile long gas export pipeline, and for managing the installation of the project manifolds and pump bases. Before joining Petrobras Craig was Deputy Manager of INTEC Engineering’s Riser Department where he was Lead Engineer for the detailed design of the BP Mardi Gras Atlantis export risers. These modified catenary-risers were the deepest and largest diameter risers in the world when they were installed in 2006, and were the first risers installed in the abyssal plane region of the Gulf of Mexico. Craig’s first post-graduate job was with WS Atkins’s Riser and Well Technology Team, in the UK, where he prepared operating guidance documents for marine drilling risers and worked on a variety of high-technology consultancy projects, performing advanced numerical analysis of dynamic risers, platform conductors, and down-hole casing. Craig is a licensed professional engineer in the state of Texas and a chartered engineer in the UK. He holds a Master of Science degree in Safety Engineering, Risk Management and Reliability from the University of Aberdeen, and a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Edinburgh.
