Alaska’s oil and gas industry is faced with a few challenges—
declining revenues on top
of declining production—
problems that need solved. It
is fortunate for the industry
that BP Exploration (Alaska),
Inc. Regional President Janet
Weiss likes to solve problems.
She’s been involved in the oil
and gas industry nearly thirty
years, much of that in Alaska,
where she began her career
and where she returned two
years ago to take the helm
of BP’s Alaska operations.
Weiss shares a bit of the past,
present, and future.
