James Barnett - Viney

I came to sea, later than most after a successful career in the British Army.  However, this background has proven to be invaluable working in the Offshore industry.  I have worked offshore for the last 10 years, working on various projects, including Rig Moves, Offshore Supply, Dive Support Vessels and Sub Sea Construction and Salvage.  I have always had a keen interest in vessel operations and assurance. 

After obtaining my Master Mariner, I decided to follow my interest ashore, and started work for an Oil Major in their Marine Assurance department. I have quickly gained excellent reputation, with both vessel assurance and project support being able to draw on a wide range of personal experience and technical knowledge.
