martijn drenth

I am an environmental, safety and risk specialist with over 20 years’ experience in delivering facility design input, project approvals and assurance processes on national and international oil and gas projects, assisting both operators and contractors during all project phases. My hands-on industry experience combined with highly developed HSE management skills, enable me to communicate at all levels. My people skills, team player attitude and tried perspective in HSE management enable me to generate solutions optimising HSE performance and project execution.

My oil and gas industry focussed academic schooling combined with my practical offshore experience, enables me to identify and manage the wide variety of environmental and safety aspects associated with oil and gas activities. I have played an integral role in facility design and operational processes to eliminate/reduce risk at source and developed innovative, realistic, practical mitigation measures to reduce hazards to as low as reasonably practicable. As well as leading risk review workshops in a variety of formats, I managed risk assessment outcomes by delivering tailor made risk management systems to ensure mitigation measures are adopted during operations. My ability to translate regulatory requirements, engineering and science into practical execution, enhances the understanding between technical and non-technical worlds and results in clearly defined controls, design decisions, project specifications and processes.

I have realised project environmental and safety approvals on behalf of operators and contractors, utilising my knowledge of the specific steps in the relevant permitting processes, identifying associated milestones and establishing realistic approval timelines. I am instigator of essential internal and external stakeholder engagement to achieve local acceptance and project support by bridging the stakeholders’ gaps in understanding of key project objectives.
