Ian is a professionally qualified engineer and manager, with over 20 years pressure systems engineering experience in the process plants business. This covers the full life-cycle of schematic development, design, materials, welded fabrication, construction, testing & handover to operators & authorities, including significant trouble-shooting, revamp & turnaround experience on operating facilities; Onshore & offshore oil & gas, LNG, refining, petro-chemical & bio-pharm plants.

With that first-hand perspective of the real engineering lifecycle, Ian has been active for most of the last 15 years in leading the implementation of information-standards-based integrations, for EPC & OO customers and the major integrated solution providers, as well as industry collaboration projects including those of POSC Caesar Association and FIATECH.

In that period Ian has been instrumental in the evolution of reference data architectures with industrial information ontologies such as ISO15926 Templates and adoption of W3C/RDF/OWL semantic-web representations. Ian continues to conduct a personal research project in knowledge management applications connecting the most sophisticated business process lifecycle integrations with social-networking interfaces.

Ian remains first and foremost an engineer.
