 Matt is currently an Investment Director with Statoil’s venture capital division as well as the Chief Technology Officer of a Statoil spin-out Reveal Energy Services, which is based on a breakthrough technology that he developed when he worked in Statoil’s Research & Technology group. He started his career as a researcher in ExxonMobil’s Upstream Research where he developed numerous technologies.  He has over 25 filed patents in the oil & gas space on more than 10 new technologies.  He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the age of 24 from MIT where he also launched his first successful start-up. 


Reveal Energy Services is a Statoil spin-out that is focused on hydraulic fracture and proppant mapping using a novel approach that is easier to use and lower cost than competing technologies.  The technology uses nothing more than wellhead pressure gauges and has demonstrated potential to achieve higher fidelity results than other technologies in the space.  It has recently closed its Series A investment round and is poised to be cash flow positive after only its first full operating quarter.
