• After graduating from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1964, with a B. Eng. in Chemical Engineering, I served in the forces until '67 as a lieutenant in RCEME in Calgary.
  • I then joined CE Natco as a Process Engineer, in their Calgary Office. During the five years with Natco, I spent one year in Tulsa (the Head Office), learning process design and equipment sizing.
  • In '72, I joined Alco Gas & Oil, a new company, as the Chief Engineer. I developed their product lines for dehydrators (glycol and calcium chloride), heaters (direct and indirect) and separators. In addition, we built 2 Refrigeration Plants, a 2TOC HRU, and a DGA Gas Sweetening Plant.
  • After a year consulting, I returned to CE Natco as Chief Engineer in their Calgary office.
  • 2 years later, I returned to Alco as Manager - Engineering. I advanced to VP - Operations and then Exec. VP. However, I still did the process design for all the plants and complicated processes.
  • In Sep '98, I joined Compact as President. I left in Sep '99, when Pacific Ranger decided to sell the company.
  • I have been consulting and teaching since Sep '99.
