He replaces SNAME fellow Ed Stokes, who has served as the SNAME representative for the last eight years, including the last two as board chairman.

The Offshore Technology Conference, held annually in Houston, is the world’s largest oil and gas conference, with nearly 700,000 square feet of exhibit space. OTC 2015 will be held May 4-7 at NRG Park.

A SNAME member since 1983, Leverette has been in the offshore industry for 38 years, including deep-water development and, specifically, tension teg platforms.

He has a doctorate jointly from MIT and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and his career has included eight years at Gulf Oil Co., 10 years as head of a small deep-water engineering firm and 20 years at SBM Offshore.
