Paul Koomey was born in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1927. He graduated from the University of Houston with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 1949. He started to work in the oilfield as a roustabout for Gulf Oil Company in Pierce Junction and later as a roughneck offshore Louisiana. But all started in 1950 when he took a job for Alemite division of Stewart & Stevenson. Paul built there the first closing unit with the help of Shaffer Tools. A business arrangement was found with Steward & Stevenson to manufacture his own equipment and the first Koomey units were sold. In 1957 the first system with nitrogen to pre-charge the accumulator was built. The Koomey system of blowout preventer controls, immensely successful, became a worldwide standard. For a time Koomey became the generic term for offshore and land BOP controls, especially with the release of the Koomey Type 80 accumulator unit. In 1979, NL Shaffer purchased Koomey Control System. In 1992 the company joined Varco. Koomey is today a trademark owned by NOV and Koomey control units are built in Mexico, US and Canada.
Paul Koomey has built successful manufacturing, sales and service organizations by seeing the needs of his clients, the rig contractors, and using his technical skills and innovation to develop products to fulfill them.
