Olivia McNamara joined WPX on July 2 as our new safety and environmental manager, reporting to Alan Killion who leads E&P Services.
Olivia has more than 17 years of experience in the oil and gas industry focusing on safety and environmental issues.
Most recently she was Manager of Safety and Environment with SK Plymouth. Prior to SK Plymouth, she held similar roles at Midstates Petroleum Company, Panther Energy and Williams.

Says Alan, "I'm confident that Oliva will not only provide leadership to the HSE team, but will contribute to the overall effectiveness of our asset teams and WPX."
Zach Bertelli and Bob Raup will report to Oliva as they continue to lead their respective safely and environmental teams.
"There's a new dynamic at WPX. I see an opportunity for us to influence the culture as its being developed," Olivia says.
