Celebrating Our Engineers for #EngineersWeek, February 22-26

Last week in our social media, DOC celebrated the engineers on staff for #EngineersWeek. We have 284 engineers on our roster throughout four divisions. Let’s meet a few of them.

Mark Ghann-Amoah

Mark is Inland District Deputy for California’s Geologic Energy Management Division (CalGEM). He supervises oil and gas drilling and production, freshwater protection, underground injection control, production tank, pipeline integrity, and CalGEM’s environmental protection programs.

One of Mark’s favorite parts of his job is the culture of respect, diversity, and collaboration while managing California’s natural energy resources with the common goal of helping achieve its carbon reduction goals.

“I believe my work is to create an environment that makes talented people want to work for CalGEM and make a long-lasting positive impact on the community.” ~ Mark Ghann-Amoah
