Ryan Bridge, Rig Inspection manager | ABL Houston
What do you do at AqualisBraemar LOC?
As the Rig Inspection Manager for the Americas Region, my role is to assist in the growth of the technical services for rig inspections, and to drive efficiencies in the project management and execution of the fore-mentioned services while also assisting in developing future business activities within the business unit.
Within the rig inspections business unit, we work with our clients to provide real-time solutions to ensure the assets they have contracted, or plan to put on contract, are fit for purpose and can deliver the planned drilling program safely and efficiently.
Our multi-disciplined engineering teams have in-depth knowledge of drillships, DP semi-submersibles, moored semi-submersibles, jack-ups, and onshore land drilling rigs.
What excites you the most about our industry?
The oil and gas industry has rebounded strongly throughout this last year, with oil prices reaching their highest levels in nearly six years. In line with the rise in oil prices, we have seen drilling activity and drilling rig reactivation on the rise globally leading to more opportunities. Specifically in the Americas, we are seeing a rise in the onshore drilling market which is an exciting avenue for ABL to tap into that had not previously been fully explored.
The energy sector has also had a history of being on the forefront of technological advancement. Every day is a new challenge to keep up with the latest and greatest innovations. Not only in the drilling industry, but also in the transition to green energy. It is exciting to see how we can incorporate and adapt our skills and knowledge to assist in this transition while still continuing to support oil and gas.
What made you join AqualisBraemar LOC?
The opportunity to continue to develop and expand a successful business and to build up a rig inspection team in the Americas.
Additionally, with the strong ABL infrastructure already in place for its traditional services, it allows for potential collaboration across the business units.
What do you do when you are not working?
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and traveling when possible. Sports and outdoor activities have always been a big part of my life and I try to stay active as much as possible and as time permits. My favorite sports being American football, baseball, and golf.
