ORIGINATOR IS BACK

OGA PIPELINE is back!!!!

It's been a long time I didn't write someting in my blog. I'm so sorry to all followers who waiting info about oil and gas pipeline in this blog. To be honest, the year 2010 was a busy and challenge year for me due to handle a big project and also involved in project management.

Normally, few years after you involved in specializing work, you've been forced to jump into management. But, this is depends on work load, either you fully or partially involved. Samething happened to me, which is previously one of my project required additional pipeline design, and I has been selected to be a focal person (Contractor Representative) between design consultant and Contractor(TLO).

The job title still considered as a part of management, but the work scope was small which is Revisit Pipeline Detailed Design (Pipeline Route Analysis, Pipeline Bottom Roughness Analysis, Expansion Analysis, On Bottom Stability Analysis and drawings).

Doing a management work is not easy as what we expect.  I've produce ITB (Invitation to Bid Doc), check the progress report and design report (almost every week), find an info for consultant to to do their job, and manage to complete the job at the agreed date. Management work is something that you play with the time. Same like the time you come to the office, for sure you're not coming after 9am everyday right?.

But, to be honest, I'm still love my job as a Pipeline Engineer, because I love to do calculation and realized I'm specialist. Other than that, currently I'm in progress to pursue my dream, to get the Ir status (Professional Engineer). Part of the requirement are to attend a course, produce experiences report, and interview.

Back to our main topic, after this I'm promised to spent sometimes to update my blog. And I'll start finish the Pipeline Design first before I bring all of you to the other field which is Pipeline Installation.

Nice blog man!
I ve been working in the subsea pipeline engineering for almost 3.5 years in India. I was wondering whether I could work as a Field engineer Offshore, though my job profile is a mix of engineering and project management. In the last one month or so i ve been searching for opportunities globally...
