CUMEC – Talk from Ranhill Worley-Parsons on Mechanical Engineers In Oil and Gas Industries


Curtin University Mechanical Engineering Club (CUMEC) held its first event on 19 August 2011. A talk from industry on “Mechanical Engineers in Oil and Gas Industries” were organised in the campus and it received overwhelming response from the nearly 70 club members.

The speaker was Mr. Chow Yuet Hong, Lead Engineer from Ranhill Worley-Parsons Miri. Mr. Chow introduced his company to the audience and shared about the tasks of engineers, particularly mechanical engineers in the oil and gas industries. The talk also included explanation on the sequential processes in designing and building an offshore platform, where he showed the students samples of technical drawings as well as graphical simulations that demonstrate steps of piping installation for offshore platforms.

The students gained knowledge and new perspectives from the talk and had a good time interacting with Mr. Chow and Mr. Stale Buri, the Regional Manager from Ranhill Worley-Parsons during the refreshment session after the talk.
