On Dec. 5, Allan M. Dolynny assumed the responsibilities of president at NANA WorleyParsons, formerly NANA/Colt Engineering, replacing John Minier, who has retired after eight years on the job.
Dolynny was named general manager at NANA WorleyParsons in October 2008, a month after Minier announced his intent to retire from the Alaska company, which is a 50-50 partnership between Alaska-based NANA Development Corp. and Australia-based WorleyParsons Ltd.
“John did a fantastic job of steering this company successfully for nearly a decade,” Dolynny said in a Dec. 15 press release. “It is my hope to lead this talented, diverse team of professionals as well as he did. We are in an exciting time in Alaska, and the possibility and creative solutions that NANA WorleyParsons consistently brings to the table will continue to have a positive impact for on-going and future projects in this state.”
Joining NANA WorleyParsons from WorleyParsons Calgary, Dolynny brings more than 22 year’s experience in engineering, procurement and construction project management to his new position.
As a former project manager with Fluor Canada, and senior manager for Colt WorleyParsons, Dolynny gained “extensive real-world experience in both domestic and international downstream oil and gas, heavy oil, pipeline, Arctic and petrochemical projects in locations around the world,” NANA/Colt said in its release.
“Allan brings a tremendous energy and a global perspective to NANA WorleyParsons,” said Helvi Sandvik, NANA Development president. “Alaska companies that have partnered with NANA WorleyParsons will enjoy working with Allan and his team. He is an asset to the NANA family of companies.”
Larry Benke, managing director, WorleyParsons, Canada, shared Sandvik’s enthusiasm for their choice of president.
“Allan has a demonstrated history of creativity and productivity,” said Benke. “He was a leader in his past roles at Colt WorleyParsons and I’m thrilled that he is taking the reins of this successful Alaska company.”
