My name is Matthew Elson and I have been working for the last 7 years in Oil & Gas on 8 point mooring drill ships and also on a DP 2 drill ship as Chief Mate and Master.
I started my career off in the Merchant Navy on-board container, bulk and general cargo ships and progressed into the offshore industry first on drill ships drilling for diamonds and later moving over to the oil and gas industry.
I have worked in Namibia, Nigeria, India, Singapore & Brazil and can work easily with any nationality as I am easy going, very patient and calm in stressful situations especially when dealing with emergencies and personnel.
I was six years in the merchant marine, sailing worldwide, and have worked in all kinds of situations. I think as a person who has been involved within the Marine and offshore industry my whole life I am well suited to the position you are offering and I also think in this career you learn to easily adapt to any difficult circumstance which may be placed in front of you or which may arise.
I carry a Masters License as amended to 2010 Manila regulations with all supporting documents.
