Dupuy was formerly the department superintendent for UHP services at Halliburton, where he managed UHP services for seven district offices.

In 1990, under his direction, Halliburton completed the first large-scale lead abatement project utilizing UHP waterjetting technology to remove lead paint from 265,000 square feet of bilge areas on CVN65 at Newport News Shipyard.

Dupuy holds a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering with a minor in business management from the University of Louisiana. He has published several technical papers on the use of UHP waterjetting for surface preparation.

Since 1998, he has served on the SSPC technical committee that developed the written and visual standards now used for UHP surface preparation.
