Costain hires experienced project director to Aberdeen operation
Infrastructure solutions company Costain has appointed Steve Carter as a project director in Aberdeen.
Working within a 70-strong upstream team based at the firm’s offices in Carden Place, Mr Carter will help deliver offshore and onshore engineering projects across the lifecycle of oil and gas assets and infrastructure.
The chartered project manager has 30 years’ experience in the UK and abroad and was most recently a project engineer on Fairfield Energy’s Dunlin Alpha project. He has also held management and project roles at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, TAQA, Petrofac and Siemens.
Mr Carter said: “I’m delighted to join Costain. The upstream team offers agile, streamlined solutions tailored to meet each individual client’s needs with innovation, sustainability and expertise to the fore at all times.
“I’m looking forward to engaging with clients to highlight our offering and to lead engineering projects that provide value to them.”
Sean Close, Costain upstream director, added: “Steve has a proven track record of successful project delivery in the United Kingdom Continental Shelf having worked for both operators and engineering service providers. He is an excellent addition to our team.
“We are implementing smart solutions, often to meet increasingly demanding project needs for our North Sea clients. Costain’s group-wide capabilities put us in a strong position as the market continues to look for efficient approaches, improved collaboration and new technologies for the optimisation of assets.”
Costain has worked with operators to deliver a series of North Sea projects. These include front-end studies, brownfield projects, EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) and repair orders, subsea tiebacks and decommissioning services.
