Arthur Lee Guy, Jr.
Humble in 1948, Arthur Guy helped design early Gulf of Mexico platforms.
He developed open water marine structure technologies and upgraded
technologies for pile foundation design and wave force prediction. One of
the most influential members of the API Offshore Committee, Guy was a
major contributor to the industry standards that serve as the basis for
governmental regulations for fixed platforms. As head of Exxon's Design
Office, he was responsible for approval of concept and final design for
more than 100 Gulf of Mexico platforms and California's Hondo platform.
