With Rajabi onboard, the solutions team plans to further provide more efficiently integrated solutions, and unmatched quality and safety standards that will in turn translate into overall cost and time savings to customers with unique and complex projects worldwide.


“We’re thrilled to have someone of Farhad’s caliber join our team,” said Tornga. “The skills and know-how he brings to the solutions group not only complement our turnkey service offerings, it further provides customers with the thought leadership and innovative spirit our clients have come to know over the years.”

He also served as vice president of ConocoPhillips Shipping and managed the floating systems division and business development efforts. While there he had global responsibility for design, construction, and commissioning of ConocoPhillips’ ships, drill ships and other marine assets, including the Polar Tanker fleet. He was also responsible for the formulation of ConocoPhillips Marine Global Gas Strategy, and their Marine Gas Organization.
Rajabi earned bachelors’ degrees in naval architecture from the Italian Naval Academy, in mechanical engineering from the US Naval Postgraduate School, and in Italian language and literature from the Institute of Dante Alighieri.
