Industry champion offers project insight for students

Posted by James Donaldson


The chair of an organisation which promotes engineering as a career option for young people is to offer students an insight into the delivery of a safety-focused oil and gas industry project.

Dr Ollie Folayan, a chartered chemical engineering consultant who also heads up the group AFBE-UK Scotland, will make a presentation at a Robert Gordon University School of Engineering seminar on Wednesday, September 27 (2017).

His address will focus on an upgrade project to sustain integrity and safety levels at St Fergus Gas Terminal in Aberdeenshire.

Dr Folayan was directly involved in the work, which involved the installation of a new and independent High Integrity Pressure Protection System in recent years to help safeguard against over-pressure at the inlet to one of the facility phases.

Dr Folayan said: “I'm looking forward to sharing with students my experiences of a complex project that was safely and successfully executed.

“My aim is to enhance their understanding of the technical issues involved in such a programme, as well as the wider factors involved in project planning and delivery.

“At the same time, I also hope to convey the professional satisfaction that comes with completing a project efficiently and effectively – and give them even greater encouragement to consider a career in engineering.”

The title of the presentation is Overview St Fergus Gas Terminal Inlet Overpressure Protection. His talk forms part of a series of presentations being made to up-and-coming engineers at RGU.

AFBE-UK Scotland is the Scottish division of AFBE-UK, a not-for-profit organisation which encourages all young people, particularly those of black and minority ethnic (BME) origin, to pursue a career in engineering.

The group runs around 20 events in the north-east annually and has helped more than 650 pupils and students across its three main programmes – NextGen, Transition and Real Projects.

Dr Folayan's presentation at noon will be followed by a Q&A session. The event at Room H605, Faculty of Health and Social Care, Garthdee Road, will run for around 90 minutes in total. The seminar for students is free to attend and registration is not required.
