Biography

Mr. Pellegrino is a Principal with Long International, and has more than 40 years of experience in all aspects of engineering, project planning and execution, and project management consulting for onshore and offshore oil and gas projects. His extensive and varied professional experience in the oil and gas industry includes responsibilities for the full project life cycle.

Mr. Pellegrino has supported, managed, consulted and acted as an expert witness for some of the largest, most complex projects in the oil and gas industry. His responsibilities and experiences include conceptual business case assessment, planning, contract development and award, execution, administration, claims avoidance/assessment, project commissioning, startup, and closeout. His oil, gas, LPG and LNG project experiences include onshore/offshore, upstream/downstream, and domestic/inter-national projects with increasing size and complexity. Project scopes ranged from multimillion-dollar domestic projects to multibillion-dollar international projects. Mr. Pellegrino has worked extensively on international joint venture major capital projects from the owner’s side.

Mr. Pellegrino has extensive shipyard, modular construction, fabrication yard, and construction site project experience. His experience includes both international onshore and offshore locations. His offshore responsibilities included various field development projects with owner management project teams and the engineering and construction contractors’ project teams for Floating Producing Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facilities, platforms (drilling, processing, compression, water injection, living quarters and Mobile Offshore Producing Units) and pipelines. He consulted extensively on two Western Australian LNG mega projects in which he provided project management expertise, drove the establishment of labor productivity programs, and participated as a subject matter expert on project execution assurance processes. As a Principal with Long International, Mr. Pellegrino provided expert claim support on two additional Australian LNG mega-projects.

Mr. Pellegrino has consulted as a subject matter expert in project and construction management covering contracting strategies, contract development/assessment, cost and schedule development/assessment, contract administration, claims avoidance, risk identification, project controls, constructibility, project planning and execution, productivity, workface planning/advance work packaging, and commissioning and start up for an owner’s multibillion-dollar portfolio of capital projects. From his direct involvement on project claims, Mr. Pellegrino focused on the implementation of the appropriate contract language, contractor award assessment, organizational structure, workflows, processes, project readiness and performance assessments for claim avoidance on projects. Throughout his career, Mr. Pellegrino provided claims avoidance and contract claims support for disputes on various projects from the owner’s side.

Supporting the portfolio of the owner’s capital projects, Mr. Pellegrino developed and established a productivity program for an owner, created and led a Construction Management Center of Expertise, and established a construction management network. The establishment of the Construction Management Center of Expertise improved the owner’s construction management organizational capabilities through the active capture and incorporation of lessons learned and best practices from capital projects and, specifically, through the development, standardization and implementation of specific construction management processes, procedures, guidelines, assurances, and project execution planning.

Mr. Pellegrino co chaired the Construction Industry Institute initiative for the development and implementation of Advanced Work Packaging for construction. Through this work and by the adoption of the construction industry, Advanced Work Packaging is now a recognized industry best practice.
