Dan Morlang is the Vice President of Capital Project Consulting for Asset Performance Networks, based out of the company’s office in Houston, Texas. Dan possesses more than 35 years of diverse experience consulting on project management issues, including time spent as Head of Projects for multiple streams at Amoco and BP.
In his current role, Dan leads AP-Networks’ capital project consulting group. His responsibilities include continually evolving AP-Networks’ suite of capital project tools and services, as well as the company’s role within the capital project space.
Since joining AP-Networks initially as a Subject Matter Expert, Dan has helped clients navigate complex capital project challenges. His work has included overall project reviews, project management capability reviews, project benchmarking, and additional client directed work. He attacks each challenge from three angles—people, processes, and behavior—in order to provide a holistic perspective on possible solutions.
Prior to joining AP-Networks, Dan worked extensively throughout the energy sector, holding various roles in engineering, operations, maintenance, major capital projects, and corporate leadership. He has managed complex turnarounds, restart projects, major revamp-intensive facility upgrade projects, and high-margin, schedule-driven projects. He has also supported global continuous improvement efforts for capital projects.
While at Amoco, Dan led the effort to develop a common capital project management work process for global use. Prior to the BP merger, Dan headed up all of Amoco’s capital project execution work outside of the U.S. When Amoco and BP merged, he helped unify and optimize BP’s capital project work process, and went on to serve as Head of Projects for Gas, Power, and Renewables for the company before becoming the Head of Projects for Alternative Energy. Dan’s leadership in these positions shaped the development and delivery of a wide array of projects involving natural gas, LNG, solar power, cogeneration, wind, and hydrogen conversion & storage.
