BOEMRE New Positions to Further Regulatory Reform

Monday, April 11, 2011

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) formally announced its search for qualified leaders to fill two senior positions to further offshore oil and gas regulatory reform efforts.

 
The first position is the Director of the Offshore Training Center, and the second is the Division Chief for the Oil Spill Response Division. Both positions are being advertised nationally to recruit the most qualified professionals to establish new organizations in the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE), one of two new bureaus being created as part of the reorganization of the former Minerals Management Service. BSEE is the new bureau responsible for regulation and enforcement of offshore activities.

“The Offshore Training Center and the Oil Spill Response Division will address a number of the regulatory weaknesses that have been identified and highlighted following the Deepwater Horizon explosion and resulting oil spill,” said BOEMRE Director Michael R. Bromwich. “We are looking for leaders who are technically skilled and experienced, and who have a strong commitment to public service, who can lead our ongoing efforts to enhance the safety of offshore exploration and production.”
 
The Director for the National Offshore Training Center will be responsible for developing the bureau’s training policy and training programs to maintain and improve the technical and professional capabilities of offshore inspections and compliance personnel. Duties of the position include establishing national training strategies and formulating training policy related to inspections and compliance functions and programs.
 
The Division Chief for the Oil Spill Response Division will be responsible for the review and creation of policy, guidance, direction and oversight of activities related to the agency’s oil spill response program. Duties of the position include developing policy and regulations related to oil spill response, and oversight of the oil spill response program to ensure integrity and consistency. The Division Chief will also be responsible for the coordination of internal and external reviews of industry oil spill response plans to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and coordination of oil spill drill activities.
