Another OSL Engineer Reaches a Major Milestone
Process Engineer Ike Obi joined OSL back in early 2012. The multi-disciplined specialist has an MSC in Oil and Gas Engineering from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, as well as a BEng in Chemical Engineering from Enugu State University of Science and Technology in Nigeria. Over the years, Ike has worked on a large portfolio of OSL projects, starting with process engineering modifications and safety review, and expanding into numerous capabilities along the way.
Dedicated to enhancing his skills as part of our Continuous Development Programme, we’re delighted to announce that Ike has recently received some very welcome news. Following a successful Professional Formation Forum review, he has been awarded Chartered Chemical Engineer status, and elected as a Chartered Member of the IChemE.
Ike said: "I see chartered status as significant career milestone achievement, and one of the keys to more challenging and responsible roles that can potentially broaden one’s experience base, and further accelerate career growth.”
Having been presented his IChemE certificate and membership card, Ike has taken a major step forward in his career progression. OSL believes that all engineers who want to gain Chartership should be given access to the relevant tools to achieve it. These can take the form of anything from mentoring and case study databases, to workshops, talks and networking events.
Alastair Robertson, Principal Director, said: “This is a perfect example of our philosophy to attract, train and retain. Ike joined us five years ago and since then he has excelled in his role. Chartered status is a reflection of his commitment to applying Clever Thinking to every task and project.”
The last few years have seen many engineers at OSL receive Chartered status. This is great news for our customers, as it demonstrates our focus on shaping the finest engineers across all disciplines. In turn, this enables a cradle to grave service offering for the gas, oil and sustainable energy markets.
“OSL works on a greater range and scale of projects than ever before,” added Alastair. “This has been made possible thanks to engineers such as Ike, who do everything within their power to become the very best that the UK has to offer.”
