Hengen Named New President of NANA WorleyParsons

Rock Hengen is his name, but you could call the new president of NANA WorleyParsons "rock solid."

"Like his name implies, Rock brings a significant and distinguished background of leadership roles in the delivery of both large and small projects in the oil and gas industry," said Helvi Sandvik, president of NANA Development Corporation.

A veteran engineer, Hengen brings more than two decades of experience in project management, engineering, construction, maintenance, startup and operations to his new job.

"At NANA WorleyParsons, engineering and design are a given. It's how we document and exceed our customers' expectations that distinguishes us," Hengen said.

Previously he was NANA WorleyParsons' vice president and general manager. He succeeds Allan Dolynny, who is the new general manager for Western Operations of WorleyParsons USAC (United States and the Caribbean).

Hengen's career began as a lead technician for Dome Petroleum in Canada. After earning a bachelor's in electrical engineering from the University of Saskatchewan in 1987, he joined Fluor Constructors Canada as the lead instrumentation engineer. He was hired by Colt Engineering Corporation in 1994 and served as the senior instrument engineer during the startup of BP Exploration (Alaska) Inc.'s Badami production facility on Alaska's North Slope.

"I was one who said, ‘Sure, I'll go there!'" said Hengen of his stints across Canada, the continental United States and now Alaska.

Hengen holds a master's certificate in project management from the University of Lethbridge in Canada.
