Dr. Andrew Parker
Executive Vice President of Hydrocarbons and Sustainability – SPL
Dr. Andrew Parker currently serves as the Executive Vice President of Hydrocarbons and Sustainability for SPL, a leading provider of testing, inspection, and certification services for the energy industry located in The Woodlands, Texas.
Andrew earned a B.A. in Geology with Honors from the University of Colorado-Boulder. He then continued his education at Texas A&M University earning a Ph.D. in Oceanography, where he studied paleoclimates of the last glacial period. Initially, Andrew did not want to pursue a career in the energy industry, but an internship with Shell in 2013 changed his mind. During that summer, Andrew learned about the commitment companies like Shell were already making to reduce emissions and be better stewards of the environment. Realizing this alignment with his core values and professional ambitions, he made the leap from academia to industry in 2015.
Since his entry into the industry, Andrew has worked directly with state and federal rule making bodies to draft several protocols related to the sampling and analysis of crude oil for use in emissions inventories. He has published several technical papers on this topic.
Andrew is an active volunteer with several industry organizations. He is currently the chair for GPA Midstream’s GHG Measurement and Abatement Committee, and also sits on API’s ESG Reporting Subcommittee. When he is not with his family, you can catch Andrew on his road bike, on the golf course, or skiing.
