Chapman Consulting, Inc (CCI) was founded as a small, family owned consulting business by Miriam and Randy Chapman over 31 years ago. Today, CCI is a licensed firm in four states, operating with a staff of highly professional personnel.
Miriam and Randy Chapman met when Miriam joined McMoRan in 1981. She was an experienced geological technician, with a Bachelor of Arts from Nicholls State University. Randy was a project engineer with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Arkansas, and a Master of Sciences in Engineering Sciences. Prior to McMoRan, Randy worked four years as a facility engineer in the Gulf of Mexico for Exxon. Miriam and Randy worked for McMoRan until 1989, when they decided to open their own firm.
The couple wanted to use their experience to provide reliable consulting services, with health and safety at the fore front of its operations. CCI was founded on this principle as a two-person project management and engineering firm in Mandeville, Louisiana. The company began growing and adapting with the industry, while maintaining safety as a priority. In 2005, CCI was relocated to Lafayette, Louisiana for the opportunity to serve the oil & gas industry more centrally.
Since CCI's beginning in 1989, we have expanded by three departments to faithfully serve our customers. Today we have a core staff of experienced project managers, engineers, drafters, designers, and inspectors. As our company continues to expand, we maintain our dedication to professional development through transparency, effective communication, and accountability- both internally and with our customers.
