Peter Blake, Subsea Systems Manager, Chevron Energy Technology

Peter Blake will present a case study for the technology session in the afternoon; the case study will be on the Chevron Alder field.

Peter is the Subsea Systems Manager for the Chevron Energy Technology Company and Subsea Global Technical Authority, based in the Chevron Technology Centre in Aberdeen with global remit to support the development of subsea systems across Chevron.

Peter has more than 30 years’ of experience working in subsea engineering, focusing on all aspects of subsea systems architecture, design, installation, operation, IRM and technological development of a discipline which has grown in significance and size during that time. His career has taken him from day to day IRM support through design, installation and project engineering to positions taking on more responsibility for organisation, staffing and competence, planning and budgeting and setting the strategic direction for the subsea discipline in Chevron. Peter has worked primarily in Aberdeen, but over the course of his career has increasingly assumed global responsibility and interfaced with teams working in Angola, Australia, Brazil, Nigeria, and Houston.

In the last few years Peter has become more involved with external industry organisations supporting the development of the subsea industry including; serving as a board member of Subsea UK for the past 2 years, assuming chairmanship of NSRI and being the Chevron representative on the International Oil and Gas Producers Association subsea committee.
