John Shields

Congratulations to John for getting 100% in his Principles & Procedures paper in 2006 and AGAIN in 2014. John is currently Senior Drilling Project Engineer for the Drilling Systems in Stena Drilling’s Mid Water Semi-Submersible Project. He has been working in the drilling industry since 1982, starting as a roustabout with Atlantic Drilling, and he joined Stena in 1999. He has worked in Brazil, Gulf of Mexico, Argentina and West Africa.

John has been married to Debbie for nearly 29 years and they have 3 daughters, Becky, Emma, and Shona. He spends much of the winter skiing, which is relatively easy to do as daughter Debbie runs a hotel in a ski resort. This season, instead of going skiing himself, John went to the Winter Olympics to support a friend’s son in the Ski Halfpipe. Cycling is his summer pastime and this year John will be cycling 300 miles from London to Paris over 3 days! The £250 will go towards
