I have worked with Grant Hay when he was assigned to Hala Gas Plant in Pakistan. Being Weatherford Country Manager, i have worked very closely with Mr Hay. We all found him a good professional with a very high moral standards. He was a leader and a model trainer. His commitment to safety was exceptional and because of his training and practices we did not encounter any LTI throughout operational period of over 3 years. Condolence to you all, my thoughts are prayers are with his family and loved ones.

Regards
Masood
