- Michael Kluck
- Sr. Project Manager - Engineering
- KBR, United States
Michael has been with KBR for 20+ years, involved in engineering design supervision and project management of major upstream and downstream projects worldwide.
Prior to KBR, he spent 20 years with Exxon Production in various upstream supervisory positions in Reservoir, Drilling, Production, and Civil Construction.
This split in his career path provided Michael with the somewhat unique perspective of having spent significant time on both sides of the mega Project fence.
Michael’s module experience and development is probably his most notable achievement (and current passion). It can be traced back to his early work around the US Gulf Coast and Gulf of Mexico where he participated in offshore and onshore field developments including a major gas plant modularization effort in the Rockies building and shipping 270+ modules from Pocatello, Idaho to La Barge, Wyoming. More recently, he had been involved in the coordination of the module effort for a Gas to Liquids facility in Nigeria as well as module planning coordination of various LNG as well as downstream and chemical facilities, both locally and worldwide. Currently, Michael is KBR’s module subject matter expert developing early feasibility studies for many of KBR’s clients and following through with subsequent module planning and project execution modeling.
As a participant in the CII research team for RT-283 (Industrial Modularization – Five Solution Elements) and co-author of the final report, Michael helped organize the development and presentation of materials required by CII to elevate “Planning for Modularization” to the level of CII Best Practice. During this effort, the CII Module Community of Practice (MCOP) was formed, supporting subsequent module research and the development of a Modularization Toolkit.
For 2017, Michael continues as co-chair of the MCOP, involved with CII in the development of a Modularization Training Program for Industry use.
