C. Henri Olivier

VP of Biodefense Services

Henri Olivier’s entrepreneurial mindset started at an early age. While in elementary school, he made his first profit by selling snacks to hungry classmates on the school bus at the end of the school day. At the age of 11, computers began to pique his interest, and he began partnering with software engineers around the globe to develop various advanced computer systems. Eventually, his efforts allowed him to break off and start his own business at 14 years old. However, the road ahead was not without setbacks. Like any business owner, he experienced success and failure along the way. At 16, he suffered a major financial hit when he encountered an equipment malfunction. Instead of throwing in the towel, he worked his way back to profitability and even created a solution to the malfunction that would later help his fellow engineers.

Henri’s exposure to the oil and gas industry also began during his childhood years. With his upbringing in south Louisiana, he was surrounded by numerous family members that worked for and owned businesses in the industry. He spent a great deal of time frequenting his father’s office, learning all facets of the non-destructive testing business. He also completed an internship at his uncle’s business where he assisted in the tracking and maintenance of rental equipment used in oil and gas exploration and production. Upon graduation, he worked as an Advanced Ultrasonic Inspector, utilizing specific applications. His work has taken him throughout Louisiana, Texas, Colorado, and the Gulf of Mexico. His engineering mindset and knowledge of computers and technology propelled his desire to learn even more about the industry. He began reading code books in his spare time to further his knowledge.

Giving back to the community has always been a priority for Henri. He has dedicated his time to projects involving the historic Laurel Valley Sugar Plantation, Southdown Community Garden, New Zion Baptist Church, and the MacDonell Children’s Home. His most recent service includes partnering with a non-profit organization to create software that assists in reducing the number of child trafficking victims.

Henri decided to embark on this journey with the belief that strong core values and an experienced team of people would lead to success. His perseverance, work ethic, and leadership would help him surpass any of his competitors. Now, with one of the most talented teams in the industry and a desire to provide solutions, add value, and guarantee excellence to customers, Henri and the Olivier International team are ready to work for you!

Tracy Blankenship

Vice President of Operations for Permian Basin

Tracy’s NDE career began at the young age of 18. Little did he know at the time, the great passion he would develop for working in the inspection industry. However, his thirst for knowledge, pride in his work, and desire to succeed all contributed to propelling his career forward. He began as an entry-level trainee in the Inspection division of Oceaneering and spent 2 years working primarily in fabrication yards. He spent the next 3 years at Team Industrial Services where he became a technician and earned multiple NDE certifications. He diversified his skills by working in various plants, pipelines, tank farms, offshore platforms, and vessel shops. His knowledge and skills grew exponentially during his next 6 years at NVI as he transitioned into management. He began as an Assistant Manager and Radiation Safety Officer but quickly advanced into the role of Operations Manager. In this position, he was responsible for managing up to 25 crews at a time. His final year with NVI was marked with great achievement. His exceptional management techniques combined with employee teamwork resulted in an OSHA recordable incident rate of zero. He also achieved no lost time accidents due to injuries, all while realizing record-breaking man hours worked.

As a member of the Olivier International management team, Tracy utilizes these proven methods to set high standards in the areas of safety, service, and quality that far surpass his competitors. His dedication to excellence and commitment to lead his team by example have resulted in many customers commenting on the positive difference they have experienced in Olivier International’s service when compared to other companies.

Lastly, Tracy would like to leave everyone with a final thought from Albert Einstein: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

Tim Sweeney

Business Development

Tim Sweeney grew up in the small-town of Rayne, Louisiana working alongside family members at a company founded in 1902 by his Grandparents named Stamm-Scheele which at that time was the 5th largest driller of municipal and industrial water wells in the USA. Stamm-Scheele was also known as an industry leader in the manufacturing of pumps needed for municipal sewerage and sanitation departments, lifting stations, in addition to the ancillary equipment and components needed to keep these systems operating throughout the year. Tim’s time spent at Stamm-Scheele sparked an interest in drilling which led him to pursue a career in the Oil & Gas Industry of South Louisiana.
Mr. Sweeney’s career in the Oil & Gas Industry began in 1980 immediately upon graduating from the LSU School of Engineering. Tim’s first job upon graduating LSU was at BJ-Hughes learning the cementing and completion aspect of drilling wells in the Gulf of Mexico. After a 7-year stint with BJ-Hughes he ventured off to work on the production side of the industry at Nalco Chemical’s Oilfield Division in Sugar Land, Texas. It wasn’t very long afterwards that Tim became Area Manager of the Gulf of Mexico Business Unit eventually transferring to the land division of Nalco Chemical due to the frantic pace of drilling in the Barnett Shale of East Texas and the Haynesville Shale of North Louisiana. Mr. Sweeney’s career with Nalco Chemical spanned a total of 27 years working in multiple positions as an Engineer, Division Manager, and Business Development Specialist before moving to The Woodlands, TX as a Marketing representative for NVI, LLC.

Mr. Sweeney was instrumental in developing new business opportunities for NVI in the fields of direct assessment, auditing, traceability, mechanical integrity, and general NDE services with Enterprise Products, Kinder Morgan, Loop, LLC, Williams Pipeline, Spectra Energy, Enbridge and Energy Transfer before accepting an offer to return once again to the chemical business in 2016 for Flotek Industries as their Executive Account Manager focused on serving the Fracking Industry.

Tim recently joined Olivier International in August 2020 as a Business Development Representative serving Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.

Mr. Sweeney currently resides in The Woodlands, TX with his wife and high school sweetheart, Beverly. Tim’s hobbies run parallel to many South Louisiana traditions in that he is the happiest cooking, duck hunting, and fishing with friends and family and is even known to play a few rounds of golf. Tim is a devout catholic who attends mass every Sunday to thank the good lord for all of his blessings that he has bestowed upon his family, friends, colleagues, and country.
