Technical Lecture of the IMarEST South East England & London Home Counties Branch, presented by Dave Turner CEng FIMarEST, Vice President, Subsea Production Operations, Global Operations; BP
This lecture discusses the current paradigm, what we really need to achieve our objectives of Safe Reliable operations - a high performing, fit for purpose subsea infrastructure – which meets the expectations of the original business investment
Dave is the VP Subsea Production Operations, with global functional responsibility for the performance of the subsea infrastructure, delivering safe operations, production availability and risk mitigation and for building the subsea operations organizational capacity. He was the GoM Subsea Operations Manager, based in Houston 2007 - 2011 and prior to that was based in the North Sea, where he developed and managed the subsea organization.
In 2004, Dave became the overall Manager of BP’s North Sea Subsea Business, supporting the cross-asset portfolio of projects and operating Performance Units. This included responsibility for the UK’s first operational deepwater subsea production activity West of Shetland, in the Foinaven and Schiehallion fields.
In his early career he held posts in Operations and Development Planning which lead into the emerging subsea Projects and Operations business, including structural and pipeline repair programs. He was the Project Engineer for BP’s first subsea production flexible tie-back. His emergence into subsea engineering came from a Project Engineering role implementing underwater repairs to the 500 mboepd Forties field structures, requiring hyperbaric, cofferdam and grouted brace repairs.
In 2005 he was awarded the Society of Underwater Technology “David Partridge Award for Technology Achievement”. In 2007, the UK Industry body, Subsea UK awarded David the “Individual Achievement Award”. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology
