Senior Project Manager. - Houston, TX @ McDermott International
Jun 2019 — Jan 2020

Member of the Proposal Team, responsible for Risk Identification / Mitigation and Interface Management for a Joint Venture LHG project in Qatar.
• Worked directly with JV Steering Committee and Operations Leadership and convinced them to use a systematic risk management / risk mitigation approach for their $20B LNG project, rather than merely adding 3 to 5 percent of the total project cost to allow for risk. Based on that approach, we were able to closeout 60% of the identified risks by using alternative engineering and project management solutions, and reduce the uncertainties in the project.
• Used Middle East experience to identify in-country permitting requirements to close out related risks and enhance project plan.
