Frank’s offshore oil and gas career began in 1983 upon gaining a PhD in Mechanical Engineering in the UK, and has continued through numerous projects in the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico, West Africa, Brazil and Asia Pacific. Frank established 2H's Kuala Lumpur office in 2006 in an effort to meet growing offshore engineering demands in Malaysia and the Asia Pacific region.
As a fellow of the UK Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Royal Institution of Naval Architects and Society for Underwater Technology, Frank is a regular author of technical papers and speaker at international conferences. In addition to his pioneering work in developing 2H's freestanding riser designs and their use in the 2000’s, he has led 2H into the new frontier of deep-sea mining. Formerly a global director, Frank now assumes the role of technical advisor to the 2H global management team.
