Chevron Australia’s outgoing managing director Roy Krzywosinksi has received life membership at this year’s Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA) conference for his efforts in promoting process and personal safety.
The accolade is the first to be handed out since 2011 when it was received by former APPEA CEO Belinda Robinson.
APPEA chairman Bruce Lake, who handed the award at the ceremony in Brisbane, said Krzywosinksi significantly contributed to the oil and gas industry in Australia and reinforced his promotion of safety, according to the West Australian.
“By vigorously promoting CEO leadership as a critical part of preventing incidents, Roy has helped develop a stronger, safety culture across the industry,” he said.
Krzywosinksi joined Chevron in 1981 and has been managing director since 2008, supervising the Gorgon and Wheatstone LNG projects as well as overseeing interests in oil production on Barrow Island and the North West Shelf Venture in WA.
He is handing over his role to deputy Nigel Hearne.
