Stewart DuthieManager, Subsea Technology at Flexlife Ltd
Stewart Duthie is one of the early members of the Flexlife team, joining the young company in July 2009, initially working in a Business Development role, latterly taking the position as Manager within the Flexible Pipe Technology & Engineering division.
Since joining Flexlife, Stewart has been heavily involved in every scanning project to date and he has developed a robust understanding of the technology and its application to the field of ongoing flexible pipe integrity. He brings a wealth of knowledge of oil & gas operations worldwide, with particular focus upon floating production and the associated use of unbonded flexible pipes.
Stewart was instrumental in the Riser End of Life JIP which saw participation from 14 Oil & Gas companies including supermajors, independents and a number of advanced inspection companies. This project which successfully concluded in 2013 provided valuable insight into the challenges associated with the safe operation of ageing flexible risers.
