Expert J. Expert has expertise in structural design and analysis in structures used in industrial applications. He has considerable consulting experience in the offshore petroleum development industry and the power industry. In the former, he served as structural discipline engineer on several projects for Floating Production Storage and Offloading Systems (FPSOs) and Single Point Terminals (SPTs). In the power industry, he is experienced in the design and analysis of structures and concrete foundations appurtenant to nuclear power plants, gas turbine plants, and wind power generation facilities. He has experience in pressure vessel and piping design and stress analysis, design of pipe supports, and the seismic qualification of safety-related structures and buildings.

As structural discipline engineer on several projects for Floating Production Storage and Offloading Systems (FPSOs) and Single Point Terminals (SPTs), Expert has been involved in several systems from proposal to installation. He was instrumental in establishing key design parameters and configurations and defining design loads. He supervised and coordinated the work of staff designers and engineers, and outside consultants, authored and approved design drawings, calculations, and reports. Expert is accustomed to interfacing with fabricators, equipment suppliers, and international clientele. He developed arrangements for lifting, handling, and integration of major structural components, both onshore and offshore, and designed integral lifting attachments. He designed and oversaw the analysis of equipment and sheave foundations, pipe supports, and specialized structures for lifting and handling of mooring lines and subsea risers.

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Nampa, Idaho
