Yongjun ‘Dan’ Chen PG'99 arranged a lunch on August 9th for two Webb students working in Houston for the summer: 

  • Connor Bennett ’14 worked with Yongjun at Technip, an offshore engineering company on the west side of Houston
  • Chris Licato ’15 worked at Rice University on robotics

Also attending were several alumni working on the west side of Houston:

  • Robert Bolling ’97 who works for Diamond Offshore, an operator  of drilling semis
  • Richard Kim ’11 who works at GVA, a designer of semi submersibles
  • Jack Mercier ’60 who works at Global Maritime, a warrantee survey company for marine and offshore projects
  • Tom Koster ’67 consultant for FPSO's to Cobalt, an independent energy company with leases in the Gulf of Mexico and offshore Angola. 

A great discussion was had about current affairs at Webb, work terms, and the offshore business in Houston.

Many thanks to Yongjun for arranging it, and the alumni who attended.
