Don't forget the Environmental, Health, Safety and Emergency Management department! They need some more cuts since safety doesn't matter anyways. Plus, we need to create new spots for the rejects the new incompetent VP is trying to save from Murphy.

I’m sure she has the potential to make an organization proud. Sadly, this one isn’t the one for her. Poor millennial it sounds like JC tried to return a “friend favor” and that’s backfiring on all of the good things APA has done, year after year......
1/2 dozen COVID emails a week. But nothing about the 8 lives lost in Egypt last year.
THAT is what HSE at Apache is. Lip service.
Would you want your loved ones working here?
VP HSE fires the Crisis Manager during a pandemic. That is how little girls fight when they are questioned.
JC continues to do nothing (but eat).
It’s hard to determine who is “qualified” for the VP HSE position when the bafoons at the top who made the hiring decision in the first place don’t even know what HSE is beyond injury rates and PPE! You would think they would of had experienced HSE people as part of the interviews as well but they didn’t. The problem is they are doing a disservice to the employees. This position is leading the charge on HSE projects and when they don’t have the leadership experience or proper education and background you will continue to injure employees and have spills. This is a position that needs to be filled with some of the best in the business, it’s not a time to reach into your friend network.
I have already done the research and the connection from the current HSE VP is through the Executive Women's network and Clay. They had quotas to hit from McKinsey for more diversity in the upper management and Clay reached out to another female he goes way back with, many years. He didn't even bother looking internally. The original women he reached out to turned down the role and recommended the current one, who has very little experience in health, safety, environmental and leadership in general. Her background is mostly emergency management with a degree in political science (go figure). She was only a manager for about a year at Murphy and now somehow she is VP material. Instead they should of looked at viable candidates internally or externally that had the leadership experience, education and/or thorough understanding of internal Apache to lead the way. Don't get me wrong, I am not against women in leadership positions. I think its paramount to have diversity in all positions. However, when selecting candidates you need to make sure they are qualified for the roles you are filling. Especially when you are laying off qualified people. But, who cares its safety. When you don't care about it you don't have to do much due diligence. It will eventually backfire on them. I guarantee if they were looking for VP candidates in production JC would have played an active role. Safety doesn't matter, they don't understand it, and don't really care about it.
Yep, safety is nothing but lip service. We laid off the best safety team in the industry because we didn't want to foot the bill for a move to Houston. The departing VP of HSE is another piece of work. Anyone who has been around KN knows he is a joke but he has connections with the C Man. Do some research, what is the connection of the current HSE VP to the existing leaders?
