    Summary

    This position provides the opportunity to work on large, complex, and challenging projects at a consulting firm recognized by CE News as one of the nation's best environmental engineering firms to work for.

He or she will also work with staff and clients in other industry sectors such as power generation and transmission, mining, refining, and manufacturing. The responsibilities of this position include:

    • Identifying industry, business, and regulatory trends to help clients anticipate, plan, and execute initiatives for responding to dynamic market conditions and the expectations of regulators and the public

    • Integrating cross-functional services in support of pipeline safety, operational reliability, and integrity management
    • Providing regulatory compliance solutions and best management practices based on clients' specific needs

Because some of Barr's clients are located in Canada, experience with Canadian environmental programs, remediation standards, and pipeline life-cycle regulatory requirements is a plus.

    The person hired will interface with clients, potential clients, regulatory staff, resource managers, other industry representatives, technical and information-resource experts, and interested and concerned citizens.

    Although the position is in our Duluth office, occasional travel to other office and client locations may be required.

Projects may involve work on waste disposal sites and sites requiring cleanup of hazardous materials. An OSHA-mandated physical exam may be required; safety training will be provided.

    • Broad understanding of the oil and gas industry and critical pipeline infrastructure
    • In-depth knowledge of the requirements for pipeline design, construction, operating, maintenance, and emergency response, ideally with an emphasis on integrity management systems
    • Experience interpreting and applying DOT/PHMSA regulations for liquids, gas, and spill response to pipeline operations, as well as assessing agency interpretations
    • Established relationships within the PHMSA regulating community
    • Thorough understanding of environmental management systems and governance support
    • Experience providing technical and strategic permitting support and direction to internal and external clients and project teams for corridor, terminal, or similar NEPA EA/EIS projects

    • Ability to provide support related to air, water, and solid- and hazardous-waste permitting and compliance
    • Demonstrated effectiveness in bringing clients and employees with expertise in diverse disciplines together to build effective teams
    • Demonstrated effectiveness in building relationships with clients, identifying project opportunities, and closing deals
    • Strong oral and written communication skills and the ability to communicate in a consultative and mentoring manner
    • Demonstrated negotiation and problem-solving skills
    • Demonstrated project organization and management skills
    • A flexible working style and the willingness to occasionally modify personal schedules as required to meet project deadlines and/or client needs

    Summary

    This position provides the opportunity to work on large, complex, and challenging projects at a consulting firm recognized by CE News as one of the nation's best environmental engineering firms to work for.

    The person hired for this position will lead and expand the group at Barr that provides pipeline and environmental cross-functional support services. He or she will also work with staff and clients in other industry sectors such as power generation and transmission, mining, refining, and manufacturing. The responsibilities of this position include:

    • Identifying industry, business, and regulatory trends to help clients anticipate, plan, and execute initiatives for responding to dynamic market conditions and the expectations of regulators and the public
    • Identifying, quantifying, and effectively communicating at an executive level the environmental risks associated with the pre-purchase of pipeline and similar infrastructure assets, and/or performing feasibility assessments of new business opportunities
    • Managing all aspects of large-scale project permitting, construction, and regulatory compliance, including cost, scope, and schedule controls
    • Integrating cross-functional services in support of pipeline safety, operational reliability, and integrity management
    • Providing regulatory compliance solutions and best management practices based on clients' specific needs
    • Establishing new relationships and maintaining existing ones with clients and employees
    • Forming, developing, and leading integrated project teams
    • Directly contributing to project work and coordinating the efforts of others
    • Mentoring employees to help them become project leaders

    The person in this role needs to fully understand federal and state regulations and the regulatory processes governing pipeline safety and environmental protection. In particular, expertise is required in DOT/PHMSA, EPA, and state environmental programs pertaining to pipeline and facility operations and applicable air, waste, and water regulations.

    He or she also needs to demonstrate the ability to manage large, complex projects and develop strategies for aligning clients' business goals and objectives with required federal, state, and local assessments and permits (including NEPA EA/EIS reviews and COE wetland permits), as well as coordinate environmental work with the design, construction planning, and execution phases of projects. Because some of Barr's clients are located in Canada, experience with Canadian environmental programs, remediation standards, and pipeline life-cycle regulatory requirements is a plus.

    The person hired will interface with clients, potential clients, regulatory staff, resource managers, other industry representatives, technical and information-resource experts, and interested and concerned citizens.

    Although the position is in our Duluth office, occasional travel to other office and client locations may be required.

    NOTE: Applicants must be able to work in locations that feature the rough terrain typical of construction sites and to enter and work in facilities that have limited accessibility, moving machinery, and other conditions typical of industrial sites. Projects may involve work on waste disposal sites and sites requiring cleanup of hazardous materials. An OSHA-mandated physical exam may be required; safety training will be provided.

    • Broad understanding of the oil and gas industry and critical pipeline infrastructure
    • In-depth knowledge of the requirements for pipeline design, construction, operating, maintenance, and emergency response, ideally with an emphasis on integrity management systems
    • Experience interpreting and applying DOT/PHMSA regulations for liquids, gas, and spill response to pipeline operations, as well as assessing agency interpretations
    • Established relationships within the PHMSA regulating community
    • Thorough understanding of environmental management systems and governance support
    • Experience providing technical and strategic permitting support and direction to internal and external clients and project teams for corridor, terminal, or similar NEPA EA/EIS projects
    • Experience with spill response actions and implementing incident command systems, environmental investigations, and remediation activities. Experience communicating and negotiating and with regulatory agencies, landowners, and public agencies on cleanup actions and levels and potential environmental and health impacts a plus
    • Ability to provide support related to air, water, and solid- and hazardous-waste permitting and compliance
    • Demonstrated effectiveness in bringing clients and employees with expertise in diverse disciplines together to build effective teams
    • Demonstrated effectiveness in building relationships with clients, identifying project opportunities, and closing deals
    • Strong oral and written communication skills and the ability to communicate in a consultative and mentoring manner
    • Demonstrated negotiation and problem-solving skills
    • Demonstrated project organization and management skills
    • A flexible working style and the willingness to occasionally modify personal schedules as required to meet project deadlines and/or client needs
    • Self-initiative, motivation, and an emphasis on client service and meeting client needs
    • Demonstrated ability to fulfill commitments on time
    • Acceptable driving record
