Description

A key to effectively addressing health, safety, security environmental and regulatory (HSSE) program requirements in oil and gas operations is to first have in place effective and structured management systems that provide for continuous and visible management commitment and leadership throughout the organization, especially at the senior management level. The success of these programs is a direct result of line execution effectiveness, which in turn influences the HSSE organization model that is in place to support them.

The objective of this presentation will be to discuss factors that should be addressed when developing a HSSE organization and staffing plan for a new organization. These factors can also be applied to an existing HSSE organization to improve its effectiveness. One of the factors will be the importance of setting up a HSSE organization that provides the appropriate level of support to the business unit while still maintaining line management responsibility and accountability for HSSE program implementation and performance. Other items that will be discussed include the importance of identifying key HSSE considerations, drivers and challenges early in the process to ensure that staffing and training needs are identified early in the process. The paper will then address the importance of establishing the appropriate metrics to continually measure the effectiveness of the organizational model and its strategies.

Roland is the Upstream Safety, Health and Environment (SH&E) Resource Coordinator for ExxonMobil Production Company. He received his BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 1975, followed by an MBA in Finance from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1984. He began his career with Exxon Company, U.S.A. as a Project Engineer at the Bayway Refinery in New Jersey in 1981. Since that time, he has held various technical, supervisory and managerial assignments for Exxon, and then ExxonMobil.


Following an assignment as a financial analyst at the Bayway Refinery, Roland transferred to Exxon's Production office in West Texas with various permitting and technical responsibilities for the LaBarge Project in Wyoming. After several years in West Texas, Roland transferred to Production Headquarters in Houston in 1994 where he served as the waste management and environmental stewardship coordinator for lower 48. He was then assigned as Compliance Supervisor at the U.S. West Production organization in 1998 (also in Houston), then as SH&E Manager for U.S. West in 2001.

In August 2006, Roland transferred back to the Production Company as Upstream SH&E Resource Coordinator with responsibilities for evaluating global SH&E organization design and staffing, as well as facilitating the transition of SH&E programs and obligations to Production as new Development Company projects are brought on line. Roland also serves as the Upstream Export Controls Coordinator.
