Hausenblas was elected at the February meeting of the Association’s Management Committee — IOGP’s equivalent of a board of directors. She succeeds John Chaplin of ExxonMobil.

Hausenblas said, “In the midst of cost and complexity escalation, oil price decline, climate change challenges and societal expectations, the industry’s need for an impactful voice is greater than ever. I believe IOGP is the most credible organisation to be that voice. I am honoured to have been elected the Chair of IOGP at this crucial juncture in our industry’s history. I would also like to thank my predecessor for his hard work and for setting up the organisation for future success.”

Hausenblas joined Shell in 1992, after her university studies in Technical Physics, followed by a PhD in Solid State Physics.

In more than 24 years with Shell, she has built a strong technical foundation as a petroleum engineer, which led to a variety of leadership appointments. These have included general management as well as functional roles in profit and loss accountability; commercial; and health, safety, environmental and social performance. During her time with Shell, she has worked and lived in Austria, The Netherlands, Gabon, Germany and Norway.
