LNG & Energy Professional | Driving Sustainability, DeCarbonisation, Energy Transition & Digitalisation Opportunities

Singapore

I love digging into abstracts and ambitious goals. My work can be summarised simply that I create structured systems and design plans of action that deliver. To achieve this, I focus on connecting the dots to achieve key outcomes, build amazing teams, and quickly adapt to new insights and technology.

Career highlights:
1. Introduced digital innovation to support business continuity and sustainability
--> Strategised and executed a Carbon Reduction Roadmap for a LNG Terminal resulting in 2,000 tons carbon reduction in 15 months
--> Pioneering Team looking into New Energies and Green Projects i.e. Novel Renewables, CCSU
--> Led implementation of digital initiatives e.g., Digital Energy Efficiency Platform, Maximo-SAP Migration
--> Conceptualised a AI-driven and holistic Operations Digital Platform to be put in R&D and development

2. Managed successful strategic business initiatives
--> Delivered high Capex Projects ($1.5 to $15B) from design to handover within budget and schedule
--> Explored novel technologies using Cold Energy as part of business opportunities and energy transition
--> Built a Digital KPI platform from scratch

3. Ensured the organisation is built for the long term through people
--> Led a team of 15 to achieve Corporate Asset Reliability KPIs
--> Developed training curriculum and assessment for a team of 15 to ensure continual competency for their functions

I've led teams and built solutions that tackle complex organisational challenges in a short period of time. I’m known to bring certainty to ambiguity and mapping out what needs to be done to achieve ambitious business goals.

Being in the energy industry for 15 years, I am now leading sustainable projects for the LNG sector. Intellectual sparring makes me a decent conversationalist, so if you have a challenge to solve where I can be of help, feel free to reach out for a cup of joe!
