Ed Kennedy has more than 29 years of direct international experience through the full life-cycle of project development, from Concept Select stage through FEED, Design, HUC/Start-Up and Decommissioning. He has worked on multi-billion dollar projects in the North Sea, GoM, Offshore Canada, South Korea, and the Middle East as both Operator and Contractor. He has considerable experience with the unique technical challenges of offshore Arctic development. His experience extends to direct management roles for fixed platforms, floaters, FPSOs, onshore plants in both Brownfield and Greenfield environments in heavily unionized as well as nonunion facilities. He has also worked in diverse non-petroleum management roles in areas such as cement production, ship conversion and high-voltage power generation. This vast spectrum of roles and experience has provided Ed with a unique and extensive ‘toolbox’ with which he is able to diagnose project problems, develop effective solutions and even lead the execution of those solutions. He is a safety advocate, an excellent communicator and is as comfortable speaking and presenting to the CEO as he is to the front-line workforce of skilled trades craft.
