Employed by GSI on a short term contract to project manage the ABRC01 Gas Compression Project on behalf of MAERSK OIL QATAR.

This support consisted of forecasting, planning, risk identification and change orders too name a few. - To continually monitor the entire project and identify opportunities that not only would improve the project financial results but also the project schedule. - To work closely with the customers project management team to coordinate major milestones and resolve any schedule issues. - To monitor financial performance on a weekly basis and review budget versus actual across the project deck. - To ensure all electrical items and the UCP were suitable for Zone 2 Class 1 Div 2 standard.
