Can you tell us more about the Chennai office and its contribution to Petrofac, as well as how you contribute on a day-to-day?
Our office is providing support for Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) projects in oil and gas, and increasingly in new energies. I hold a management role overlooking a multidisciplinary team of engineers and the ultimate accountability and responsibility for the work we do here rests with me. This includes governance, finance, legal aspects, and many other things, but probably the most differentiating aspect is that I am responsible for more than 500 people working here. Ensuring they are happy with their job and profession, talking to their managers about their progress, making sure they are working in the right roles.
And what is the most exciting part of your job?
Finding solutions to problems. Be it technical, or even more rewarding – solving problems that enable people to do a better job and providing them with a way forward.
