Scott Corby oversees Aera’s mandate that “every day, everybody goes home alive and well.”
In that role, Corby not only helps Aera protect its people with safety tools, guidance and standards. He’s also charged with making sure Aera is a good environmental steward, protecting air, water and ecosystems.
“Aera’s responsible approach to oil and gas production runs top to bottom,” he says. “We are committed to being a safe operator, a sound environmentalist and a good neighbor.”
Corby joined Aera’s predecessor, Shell, in 1982 after earning a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Northern Arizona University. His three-decade career with California-based Shell and Aera has included engineering, operations, environmental compliance, purchasing and internal continuous improvement responsibilities at the field and corporate levels.
Working with Aera, Corby says, has given me “good friends from among my work mates, challenging assignments and the good fortune to work under the company’s strong business model.”
Corby serves on the board of the California Independent Petroleum Association and on the production committee of the Western States Petroleum Association.
In 2014, Corby was honored with the United Way’s award for outstanding individual support for his years of service on the organization’s board of directors in Ventura, Calif.
