How would you describe a typical day for you at Wellube?
My typical day involves office as well as on-field responsibilities. Depending on the project and which stage it is in, I spend time at the office preparing the technical documents and meeting clients to engineer the right solution for them. Once the solution is agreed upon by the client, I go to the site with my team to implement the solution. This gives me a good balance of project management and hands-on technical experience.
Any key highlights to date of working with the company?
Owing to the nature of work that we are involved in, every project is exciting and challenging. There are quite a few projects I have worked on which are key highlights in my career, executing the first online isolation of a gas pipeline using the Gas Bag Method is definitely one of my favourites. A recent job where we did four 30” single line stop is also a project close to my heart due to the challenges we overcame for that project and the learnings from it.
