Started in 1976 doing oil and gas regulatory compliance.
Worked my way up to Manager - Regulatory where I oversaw the work of 6 regulatory analyst.
Promoted to Director - Regulatory and hired Manager to oversaw the day to day operations of group,.
My job was to monitor endangered species and determine their impact on field operations. I also monitored changes in rules and regulations from state and federal levels.
I studies the proposed changes, compared to current rules, determined the impact of the new proposals and wrote comments back to state or federal agency making proposal. Once proposals became law, determine how operations were impacted and worked with Sr. Management, and field operations to implement new rules.
I thoroughly enjoyed this work and found it to be very fulfilling.
