Pat O'Hara, PE

Senior Client Manager
Oil & Gas

Pat is a Senior Principal, working with clients in the mid-Atlantic region from our Pittsburgh, PA office. He was a co-founder of consulting firm Cummings/Riter, which has since merged with Woodard & Curran. Pat is a leader in our environment and remediation group, spearheading the creation of the firm’s shale gas service line. Since the 1980s, his career has evolved to focus on energy production and its impact on the environment.  He is a nationally recognized expert in environmental remediation and serves as a national Director of the American Counsel of Engineering Companies (ACEC), as well as the Chair of ACEC’s Energy subcommittee. 

“I’ve worked on energy related assignments all over the world—from the American Midwest to Africa—but I’m a lifelong Pittsburgher, and I’ve been lucky enough to dedicate my career to service in the region I call home. Being here has also positioned us well to be on the front line of assisting exemplary clients in developing and implementing the world’s best environmental practices in recovering natural gas and oil from the Appalachian Basin, something I’m very passionate about.”
