Andrew Palmer is Keppel Chair Professor in the Center for Offshore Research and Engineering of the Department of Civil Engineering of the National University of Singapore. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society, a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers, and a Chartered Engineer. He has divided his career equally between practice as a consulting engineer and university teaching. In 1975 he joined R.J. Brown and Associates. In 1985 he founded Andrew Palmer and Associates, a company of consulting engineers who specialise in marine pipelines. In 1996 he returned to research and university teaching as Research Professor of Petroleum Engineering at Cambridge University in England.He was a Visiting Professor in the Division of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, 2002-03. He is the author of three books and more than 210 papers on pipelines, offshore engineering, geotechnics and ice. He has an active consulting practice, and was Chairman of the DNV Pipelines Committee from 2007 until 2010.Ken Croasdale has been active since 1969 in developing the technology for offshore oil and gas operations in Arctic environments. He spent time with Imperial Oil initiating and managing their Frontier Technology Group and several years with other operators active in the Beaufort Sea and East Coast Canada. He has specialized in ice interaction with offshore facilities and conducted many research projects on this topic, including various field experiments. The experience gained in Canada has been applied to the Russian and Kazhakstan Offshore. He advised Public Works Canada on ice issues and ice loads on the Confederation Bridge. He is currently President of K.R. Croasdale & Associates and is still a Chartered Engineer (UK) where he started his engineering career as a student apprentice and external student at the University of London. He is a registered Professional Engineer in Alberta. He has published frugally but widely and given invited lectures worldwide. He has been deputy convener of ISO WG8 (the group which developed the ISO 19906 Standard on Arctic Structures) since its inception in 2002. He continues to initiate and promote research to improve knowledge of ice mechanics, but now somewhat reluctantly leaves the fieldwork to his younger colleagues in order to spread the work around, but more importantly in order to spend winters in warmer climes.
