Meridian Energy Group is proud to welcome John Cloward as its new Chief Risk Advisor. Now that the critically important air quality Permit to Construct from the North Dakota Department of Health has been awarded (June 2018), Meridian is preparing to begin fabrication and construction of the Davis Refinery. Mr. Cloward joins Meridian as construction is fast approaching to oversee the risk analysis and mitigation measures associated with the completion schedule and cost control for Davis.
Mr. Cloward recently left ConocoPhillips, where he served as their Senior Risk Analyst and Risk Management. Mr. Cloward previously worked for several major energy firms, including Exxon Mobile, and with major energy consulting firms, providing quantitative assessment of uncertainty in design, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and start-up of their projects, resulting in more realistic project schedule and cost targets and avoidance of schedule and cost overruns.
