MPG Pipeline Contractors, a leading North American pipeline contractor, has announced it has named Dan Murphy as Quality Assurance Manager in its Houston office, Texas.
Murphy will enhance and implement a comprehensive quality assurance programme to manage quality control, ensure traceability of components and materials and organise construction turnover through commissioning and startup functions.
“Dan’s expertise in building and implementing quality assurance programs for oil and gas industry clients makes him an invaluable asset for our MPG team,” said Jimmy Fontenot, president, MPG Pipeline Contractors. “An even more effective quality assurance program will not only improve the quality of MPG products and services but will also strengthen the value of our company operations and enhance customer satisfaction.”
Murphy joins MPG with more than 30 years’ experience in operations, quality assurance, engineering, and project management. Recently, he worked as the compliance and quality manager for TransCanada Pipelines Ltd.
“MPG has a two-tiered approach for long-term success including proactive improvements and strategic growth,” said Fontenot. “MPG’s quality assurance program is atypical in the pipeline industry and the proactive implementation will benefit MPG’s customers while exceeding industry regulations.”
Murphy has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Electronics Engineering and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Houston, as well as a Master of Science in quality assurance from Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, Georgia.
