Hear what our recent clients and colleagues had to say about Straker Energy.

Ryan has a wealth of technical knowledge and practical experience within the Oil and Gas industry where he has held senior positions in a design, construction, testing and installation capacity.

I have worked closely with Ryan on a large scale EPIC project where he was (in my opinion) a very influential contributor to the Project’s success. In an environment of tight schedules, intensive engineering, new product development and very demanding clients, Ryan embraced these challenges and maintained a positive, professional approach at all times.

Ryan recently supported Ocean Installer on the Liuhua 16-2 project as the project lead managing the scope whilst on board the FPSO during the pull-in and pre- commissioning operations in the South China Sea.

Ryan’s depth of knowledge, expertise and leadership provided excellent support on a relatively technically straightforward but increasingly operationally challenging project due to restrictions and limitations imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Ryan proved to be a valuable member of the team and we would have no hesitation in utilizing his services on future projects.
