Link cross-functional teams and software platforms/Integrating data to solve complex concerns
Geologist with conventional and unconventional oil and gas experience coupled with a strong data analytics
background specializing in developing innovative internal and external workflow methods to integrate all data
critical to reservoir understanding and exploitation. Skilled in cross-functional project development and
management resulting in a reduction in OPEX and CAPEX, including data mining, data sharing and development of
internal and external workflow processes, training and mentoring teams.
Experience in data acquisition and critical workflows using a wide range of software technologies (geological,
petrophysical, geochemical, seismic, engineering) and finding alternative solutions to complex problems.
Partnered with clients to identify and execute technological solutions for complex cross discipline concerns,
including developing and teaching fundamentals of production and injection/disposal for internal and external
training. Technical projects included developing and teaching fundamentals of production, injection/disposal for
internal and external training. Designed and presented technical training and information at professional
conferences and was selected to serve on the technical review committee for presentations and processes
(improved sample best practices: collection, deliver and preservation).
Develop training, marketing and promotion for Water Laboratory and cross-analytical education for internal and
Create new education seminar series, professional presentations and marketing to expand the companies
reputation and introduction to new and diverse
Assist with internal data management, data mining and development of well data standards for internal and
client data bases.
Work with business development to identify new and emerging technologies and potential avenues of new
Pilot project for wells data management: established training and developing workflow documentation manual for
new employees. Reviewed and implemented organizational rules and well data and files into packages (regulatory,
drilling etc.) in creating a searchable data base for an international data management company.
Developed and managed cross-functional asset team projects resulting in over $2M in OPEX savings. Directed and
mentored field development and cross-functional asset teams and interns (geologist, engineers and technical)
including developing workflows, drilling wells, reserve documentation, mapping - modeling, Salt water
Staff Geologist on Onshore US asset team, numerous new venture acquisition reviews (Bakken, Haynesville,
Wilcox) and lead divesture teams. Identified as a contributing member of the Continuous Improvement
Leadership team by senior management.
Identified and resolved complex data management by creating and implementing a unique well identification
process which linked all company data bases (world-wide), data mining and developed workflow procedures for
extraction and importation into a company-wide data base.
Generated data mining – data sharing workflow processes across functions and platforms.
Geologist for regulatory concerns: State expert witness, SWD, AGI, TOC and commingling including developing
state requirement documentation.
Identified H2S source, generated H2S and CO2 prediction maps resulting in OPEX savings.
Initiated and led produced water study, resulting in a scale modeling - prediction map and source identification.
Developed the link (UWI) between accounting, reserve (Aries) and geological data bases, working closely with
reservoir engineers. Generated cross-sections and maps, using Geographix software for field development,
acquisition and divestiture data rooms.
Managed new drills, wrote drilling procedures, and coordinated with drilling / directional engineers,
mudloggers, logging companies, completion and production engineers.
Modeled multiple shale and sand reservoirs, located future SWD utility sands and co-developed increased
injection pressure program with production engineer, resulting in OPEX savings and reserve increases.
Championed regulatory coordination including verification of proposed perfs, hearing preparation (logs, crosssections,
maps, etc.) and provided geological defense statements and data to State agencies.
Geological Liaison with WIO resulting in quick data exchanges and collaboration.
Directed increased injection pressure asset team and achieved significant OPEX reduction for Sub-surface
water-SWD existing and future.
Achieved production increases by developing post completion support-shale fine migration and scale
Functioned as Geological consultant with pipeline company to determine most efficient route.
Managed field development research for TX and OK to set-up data base as well as collect and verify data, generate
X-sections and maps over various horizons. Interacted with geophysist and geologist on high-priority projects such
as field development and acquisitions using Petra software.
