1997 to February 2012 employed by Offshore Joint Services, Houston, Texas.

In June of 2006 O.J.S. relocated me to Batam Indonesia where I still live today.

Responsibilities included but not limited to inland and offshore field experience as coatings supervisor, operations technician, Projects manager.

During the 14 year duration of my employment with Offshore Joint Services I have successively completed over 60 offshore pipeline coatings contracts assigned to me with minimal downtime lees than 5 hours.



 DPR’s, tracking of payroll information for technicians involved as well as Overseeing and training of third party personnel in the operation and application of either one of the following.


Canusa GTS-PP HSS &

Raychem  PP HSS,

These products are a heat shrink sleeve coating that I have applied over 5000 pieces mainly on pipeline field joint coatings.

Densiflex IMPU

Densiflex is a two part flexible SPU that is applied on specialty items such as valves & offshore field joint coatings

I have applied over 1000 pipeline field joints with this product.

Heat activated Epoxy Primers, 

Heat activated epoxies primers are used for pipeline coatings. I have used this product on over 5000 field joint coatings

Using pipeline induction heat as the curing agent


Fusion bonded epoxies are a powder based coating applied to a substrate after using induction heat

I have coated over 10,000 pipeline field joint offshore with this product.

My experience with this material is technical supervision, equipment maintenance on automatic pipeline powder coating equipment, maintenance on inverters that run the induction heat, maintenance on heat induction coils.


High Density Polyurethane Foam

This product I have coated over 150,000 pipeline field joints offshore.

The purpose of this coating is to protect the paint coating within the annulus of the field joint that has concrete weight coating for subsea pipeline construction as well as being used in thermal insulation on other applications offshore.

Sea Sleeve with HDPF,

Seasleeve was developed in 2000 to eliminate the handling and use of sheet metal as an expendable mold that contains

The reaction of HDPF once injected. These poly ethylene sheets were developed by Offshore Joint Services and I have applied over 150,000 sheets to field joint coatings for subsea pipeline construction.

Power Crete,

Powercrete is a very durable pipeline and substrate coating developed around 1999.

My experience with this coatings system is technical and maintenance with application of the two part epoxy coating in the field.

Serviwrap Cold Coatings,

Cold coatings are used for pipeline coatings. These coatings come in rolls that vary in sizes and only require a pre-heat of the substrate prior to application. I have coated over 50,000 field joints with this material.

SPU- Solid Polyrethane,

Solid Polyurethane is a two part system much like HDPF with any expansion of the product.

This product is used for anode tapers, pipeline field joint coatings, valves, risers. I have coated over 2000 field joints with this product.

Steel Grit Blasting,

Steel grit blasting I have used mainly for pipeline field joint coatings, My experience with this product is safe storage, maintenance with blast grit pots and recovery technical expertise.

I have blasted over 10,000 field joints to near white metal

Pipeline Induction Heat

My experience with induction heat is mainly with the application of Fusion Bonded Epoxies & Primers.

Duties were maintenance with inverters and heat rings, Technical
