Moving Back to Oil & Gas

Despite the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and the world economic slowdown, oil & gas projects are on the rise again creating better opportunities for the veterans as well as newbies in the industry.

After 2-1/2 years doing water related projects, I just find water projects as boring. More so, the water industry do things differently compared to the oil & gas.

Today, I was formally informed that I will be assigned to a new project, a coal-seam gas pipeline EPC project. This is the opportunity I was waiting for, moving back to oil & gas again. The project may last for a couple of years.

    I do not know yet . I am currently looking for a job either as a Project Engineer (Mechanical).
    My other option is to go back as Ship Repair Manager or Maintenance Manager for shipyard facilities.

    In the meantime, I am tutoring my daughter for her Primarily School Leaving exams (PSLE) here in Singapore. Their Curriculum is quite tough so it may be a blessing in disguise.

    Do you have any contacts in the Oil & Gas? Or do you have any projects you need people with Mechanical Background>

    Best Regards,

    My last company was with an Oil & Gas company – Global Industries Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd.
    My job as a Senior Mechanical Engineer for the last 2.5 years was to oversee Mechanical Equipment installation of Owner Furnished Equipment for a DP- 2 Derrick Pipe Lay Vessel named G1200 at Keppel Singmarine , Singapore.

    I am currently looking for a job probably in Oil & Gas or Power Generation where my skills are suitable.
