APC is pleased to announce our most recent participant in the APC/Edison Chouest Offshore internship program. Corey Lind is an APC shareholder and lifelong Bristol Bay commercial fisherman who has roots in Port Heiden. Corey and his family relocated to King Salmon in 1996 and graduated from Bristol Bay Borough High School in 2004. Shortly after, Corey joined the USCG and shipped off to boot camp in January ‘06. His first duty station was aboard the USCG Cutter Long Island out of Valdez. Corey spent two years doing search and rescue and fishery law enforcement. Corey attended Marine Science Tech school in 2008 and was stationed in Oahu, HA for two years after.
Since his discharge from the USCG, Corey has worked for Jacobs Engineering as a remediation soil sampler, British Petroleum and at Shell operating spill response vessels. Corey says “ I got my Captains License in 2016, I can say the bulk of my experience has been in the maritime field, which is why I chose to pursue this opportunity with ECO. After training I’ll be going to one of the ship escort tugs in Valdez. My goal is to make it to the Captains chair of one of those tugs once I get the additional sea time, appropriate tonnage and endorsements on my license.”.
APC congratulates Corey for being accepted into the program and wishes him best of luck as he pursues his career goals in the marine vessel operations industry. If you’re an APC shareholder and are interested in pursuing a career path in the marine industry, and are willing to apply to the internship, please contact APC Corporate Affairs for more information.
