- 1989 – Present President, EDM Services, Inc., Simi Valley, California
- Responsible for all phases of the management and direction of the firm. This includes project management, financial management, staff supervision, peer review, marketing, regulatory compliance, personnel, etc. The following is a partial list of the major projects Brian has managed during his tenure with the firm:
- Pipeline Risk Assessments – Conducted a risk assessment of California’s regulated hazardous liquid pipelines. The published report document is considered a landmark study by many in the pipeline risk assessment field. A second risk assessment was completed in 1996, covering California’s crude oil gather lines. A number of project specific risk assessments have been completed for numerous projects throughout the United States.
- Electrical Power Plants (California Energy Commission) – Conducted the Facility Design reviews for numerous power plants within the State. These plants ranged in size from 50 MW to over 1,000 MW. This work included reviewing the Applications for Certification (AFC), testifying during public workshops, preparing facility design assessments for each project, developing conditions of plant certification, providing testimony at evidentiary hearings, etc.
- Plan Check and Inspection – Managed a number of major petroleum project plan check and construction inspection projects for Santa Barbara County. Some of these project included: All American Pipeline, Texaco pipeline abandonment, various slope and stream channel instability projects, etc.
- Regulatory Compliance – Directed the Exxon SYU Project, Fugitive Emission Component Identification Project. This project included line verification using existing P & ID’s, line walk down, database development, and preparation of a complete inventory of all components in ROC service. Upon completion, the project included over 220,000 annual leak path inspections on 50,000 components, located at Exxon’s Las Flores Canyon, Platform Heritage, Platform Harmony, and Platform Hondo facilities.
- Rail and Locomotive Projects – Provided designs, permit processing and project management on numerous railroad projects for Texaco and Union Pacific Railroad. These projects have included storm water handling at locomotive servicing facilities, locomotive servicing facility design, rail car loading/offloading facilities, etc.
- Pipeline Designs – Managed numerous pipeline design, replacement and relocation projects for Ultramar, Chevron, Southern California Gas Company, Wickland Oil, etc. These projects have included project permitting, risk assessment, detailed design, structural analysis, construction management, field inspection, operation and maintenance manual development, start-up assistance, as-built drawing preparation, etc.
- Pioneer Chlor Alkali Project – Brian managed the design of a seven mile chlorine pipeline project in Saint Gabrielle, Louisiana. This project incorporated several innovative designs. These designs mitigated the risks associated with this hazardous service. These mitigations included: marker tape over the line, EDM Services’ proprietary fiber optic trip wire technology, reinforced concrete coated pipe, and EDM Services provided SCADA and leak detection system.
- Structural Design, 6th Street Utility Bridge – Brian recently completed the design and permitting of the 6th Street Utility Bridge, located in Long Beach, California. This structure spans 560 feet, across the Los Angeles River. The bridge will be raised four feet to accommodate higher levies and flood walls along the channel. This also required coordination of the relocation of several utilities which are supported on the bridge.
- Pipeline Terminal, Chevron Pipe Line Company, Equilon 20″ Connection – Brian recently completed the turn-key design, permitting, and construction of this $1,600,000 facility. This project included a 20″ pipeline connection, with three parallel 8″ delivery meters.
