Excellent analysis, writing and computer skills, including website design and Microsoft Office applications. Lead Business Analyst, Information Technology 26 years experience in data communications, analysis and presentation; data center operations; end-user training and support; and operator–machine interface design in a real-time mission critical environment. Responsible for all Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition system operations, maintenance, and support, and led a team that successfully supported SCADA for over 15 years with near 100% availability. Provided 24x7 support for gas control, measurement and pipeline modeling applications and users on Windows, VMS and SunOS platforms. Remotely supported field personnel in four states and the Gulf of Mexico with installation and troubleshooting of communications links, as well as PC issues. Recognized for comprehensive knowledge of pipeline operations and gas flow dynamics gained from ten years as Gas Controller and Gas Control Analyst.
EXPERIENCE Columbia Gulf Transmission Co., Houston, Texas 1987-2003 Team Lead, Lead IT Analyst, and Systems Analyst for Real-time Systems Lead Business Analyst for gas control, measurement, modeling and technical services teams, integrating real-time pipeline data with business applications and providing primary IT support. Provided 24x7 technical support and training of integrated gas control, measurement verification and transient/steady-state model applications and systems. Thorough understanding of process and architecture permitted rapid troubleshooting and resolution of problems. Performed database configuration of compressor station and flow measurement telemetry. In 2003, successfully managed the SCADA side of a compressor station automation project that allows unattended operation of compressors in Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky by Houston-based Gas Controllers. Designed, built and maintained operator interface screens used by gas control, measurement and field personnel. Designed screens interfacing real-time data into the company Intranet, permitting maintenance technicians to remotely monitor and troubleshoot communications failures, reducing costly site visits and after-hours callouts.

Normally, of course, such scans are automatically triggered on a set schedule or by specific events. Dozens or even hundreds of devices can be scanned simultaneously, and at frequencies ranging from seconds to weeks. * * * The Scan button at the lower right will force a new scan.

Designed, configured and maintained SCADA processes that allow external customers to access their real-time data on a secure website. Created a SCADA Knowledgebase for use by both operational and support personnel. Participated as the SCADA representative in a pipeline security and vulnerability analysis team in wake of 9/11 attacks. Instructor for "Wellhead to Burnertip" training seminar, and created PowerPoint/VB applications used to introduce employees to concepts of orifice measurement, gas compression, flow, velocity, and pipeline inventory analysis. Designed and wrote Excel applications used by Gas Control to calculate system inventory, and which also display current operating data for all mainline compressors and gas meters. Designed and coded Fortran application for calculating real-time transportation/exchange imbalances. Successfully managed the SCADA system through three major upgrades. Provided project management and personal computer support as required. EXPERIENCE (cont.)

This slide estimates the pressure, volumetric flow rate, inventory and gas velocity in a natural gas pipeline. Click inside any of the white fields above and enter a new value, then click Calculate. You can also change the parameter to be calculated (in the yellow field) by selecting a different radio button on the left.
EXPERIENCE (cont.) Columbia Gulf Transmission Co., Houston, Texas 1976-1987 Gas Control Analyst / Senior Dispatcher / Dispatcher Analyzed gas flow and compression requirements under varying load conditions. Coordinated transportation and exchange volumes to minimize imbalances. Trained and supported shift dispatchers. Monitored pipeline pressure and flow conditions, configuring compressor and valve configurations for optimum safety and fuel efficiency. Alerted Management and coordinated repair crews and operations during pipeline emergencies. Wrote training manual Basic Flow Analysis for Gas Controllers.
