Upstream PS has welcomed six experienced HSEQS appointments to support the continuing growth of its WA business.
Vaughn Hinkley, Bronwyn Innes, Richard Morup, Amelia Badri, Bradley Gundlach and Mitchell Lushey further enhance Upstream PS’ capabilities in HSEQ, risk engineering and management. The incoming talent brings extensive oil and gas specialist experience to complement Upstream PS’ accomplished team of operations and management professionals, engineers and technical specialists.
Upstream PS Managing Director, Joe Corvetti, says, “Our team continues to evolve in response to growing demand for our services for onshore and offshore assets around the country. Whether we are Registered Operator of an asset, providing maintenance and production assurance solutions or assisting oil and gas companies with advisory services, everything we do is based on our commitment to responsive client service and technical excellence.”
Joe adds, “In WA we have been fortunate to retain several long terms clients, whilst recently expanding our offshore portfolio of projects, representing great opportunities for our people.”
Upstream PS, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of GR Engineering, employs almost 200 people, with offices in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Kuala Lumpur. The Perth office is planning to recruit up to 50 offshore operations experienced professionals in the coming months.

Denny was appointed to Group HSEQS Manager earlier this year. His careers spans a range of industries and combined with extensive experience both onshore and offshore, Denny oversees regulatory relationships.
