Source Rock Engineering




Steve Hennings, MS, P.E. is the Unconventional Gas Manager for Source Rock Engineering in Littleton, Colorado. He is a registered professional engineer and holds a BS in Petroleum Engineering and an MS in Finance. His 29 years of experience are split between reservoir engineering assignments and operations engineering assignments, ranging from rig foreman to computer simulation engineer to operations superintendent. Hennings has field and reservoir experience in a large number of basins, covering every phase of development. His focus for the past nine years has been on Coal Gas, Coal Mine Methane and Shale Gas development. He has been involved in technical evaluations of the Barnett, Summit, Haynesville, Marcellus, and Mulky shales in North America. He is also currently involved in developing a Jurassic shale in China.

Hennings is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers, Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists, and the Society of Mining Engineers. In 2008 he was awarded the prestigious annual Stefanko Award from the Society of Mining Engineers, for his technical contributions.



Hennings has taught technical Coalbed Methane workshops for the past five years, and has presented courses in several different countries for various operating companies and organizations, including SPE. The courses have focused on topics ranging from Drilling and Completions to Computer Simulation. He has also been a featured speaker at various technical meetings in North America and Australia on subjects including Mature Fields, Coalbed Methane, Computer Simulation, Shale Gas and Coal Mine Methane.
