Andy Cole began working in the offshore oil & gas industry in Western Australia in 1986 as a graduate structural engineer (for Wholohan Grill & Partners) specialising in the design of offshore structures.
Early experience was gained on the structural design of Woodside’s Goodwyn platform on the Northwest shelf and then Chevron’s Alba North platform following a move to the UK to gain North Sea experience.
From his early experience in offshore facility design, he has gained 30 years of EPCM experience across the Upstream and Midstream Sectors of the Oil & Gas industry working in Australia, UK, South East Asia and the Middle East.
Other roles have included operational management (most recently across South East Asia), mergers and acquisitions support and growth strategy development & implementation management.
Andy has a Bachelor of Civil Engineering and a Masters of Business Administration, both from the University of Western Australia.
