The same competitive fire that drove Hess’ Stacey Nachbaur as an elite athlete during her college hockey career is an important part of her approach to managing Hess’ natural gas and oil production from thousands of wells across hundreds of miles throughout northern North Dakota. The leverage she applies to her booming slapshot serves as a metaphor for the leveraging of people, data and technology to drive timely, efficient energy production.

Stacey is part of America’s Generation Energy: integrating advanced technology and teamwork to develop the energy resources that power the U.S. economy and Americans’ modern lifestyles while also reducing her company’s physical and environmental footprint.

She and her skilled team of engineers, operators and technicians represent a 21st-century natural gas and oil industry, whose production has made the United States the world’s leading natural gas and oil nation, created jobs and prosperity from one coast to the other and powered a U.S. manufacturing renaissance. It’s technology-driven, smarter, safer and increasingly more efficient.

“We’re working in the digital oil field,” she says. “From the surface of the earth to underneath, technology is integral to protecting and enhancing production. It keeps all aspects of operation interconnected to improve safety, reduce our footprint and increase our productivity, and we have to be equipped to leverage the best of high-tech advancements to maintain our competitiveness in the global market.”
