MPG Pipeline Contractors, a leading North American pipeline contractor, has named Dan Murphy as quality assurance manager in its Houston office.
Murphy will enhance and implement a comprehensive quality assurance program to manage quality control, ensure traceability of components and materials and organize construction turnover through commissioning and startup functions.
â€œDanâ€™s expertise in building and implementing quality assurance programs for oil and gas industry clients makes him an invaluable asset for our MPG team,â€ said Jimmy Fontenot, president, MPG Pipeline Contractors. â€œAn even more effective quality assurance program will not only improve the quality of MPG products and services but will also strengthen the value of our company operations and enhance customer satisfaction.â€
Murphy joins MPG with more than 30 yearsâ€™ experience in operations, quality assurance, engineering and project management. Most recently, he worked as the compliance and quality manager for TransCanada Pipelines Ltd.

â€œMPG has a two-tiered approach for long-term success including proactive improvements and strategic growth,â€ said Fontenot. â€œMPGâ€™s quality assurance program is atypical in the pipeline industry and the proactive implementation will benefit MPGâ€™s customers while exceeding industry regulations.â€
