John Carter’s father worked for a quarter of a century as a production manager for Burma Oil, and his son followed him into the oil business. Living in Glasgow, Scotland, Carter studied mechanical engineering and graduated in 1964, then promptly joined Shell. He soon went to work in the North Sea, and then served in various positions in the United States, Asia, and beyond. He worked on the landmark Castellon FPSO off of Spain, the first of its kind. After many more years of FPSO-related work, Carter then went into general gas management in the UK, with Shell, and remained there until he retired. Interviewer: Tyler Priest.
