Richard O. "Dick" Wilson

Dick Wilson successfully designed and installed platforms and pipelines in the world's harshest environments. Starting with platforms in the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Maracaibo, he graduated to pipelines in Brazil. He assisted Zapata in drilling the first producing well from a floating system. Wilson played a critical role in developing Brown & Root's marine construction business in the North Sea, growing the organization from a single individual to 8000 people in 13 years. He led developments from the southern gas sector through the major oil fields at Ekofisk, Forties and Frigg. After leaving the North Sea he assisted offshore development in the Bay of Campeche enabling Mexico to increase its oil production by two million barrels per day.
