Extra information:

Steve has been one of the leading offshore technology specialists in the world for more than 30 years. Initially he covered the general offshore scene.  In 1984 he became editor of SUBSEA ENGINEERING NEWS, a twice-monthly newsletter that focussed on the new technology of the offshore industry. He took over ownership of the newsletter in 1987 and is generally acknowledged to be the leading specialist writer on underwater technology.

 Steve has contributed specialist articles to most of the important offshore publications, including Offshore Engineer and Offshore, and has been called upon to provide informed analysis on technical issues. He has contributed to The Times, The Independent and Lloyd's List and appeared on BBC television and radio to comment on issues relating to oil and gas technology. At one time, he was also a regular contributor to The New Scientist on energy and underwater technology subjects.

In addition to his journalism, Steve's considerable experience with technology and the business marketplace had led to consultancy work for major international oil companies and those in the service and supply sector. He also provides advice to conference organisers on technical programmes and has branched out into training courses for engineers.
