I have been with ConocoPhillips for my entire career. I worked in the US, the UK and at our central engineering group as a production engineer and production engineering supervisor. I served as project manager for a company-developed digital well file and production optimization tool. I became the director of Strategy & Portfolio Management, developing our first analyst and investor presentation as an E&P company following the company’s spin of our downstream assets.

I later became an implementation supervisor in our Delaware Basin unconventional asset. My next role was as a planning and integration supervisor for the Mid-Continent business unit. In both roles, our remit was to maximize the net present value of our Permian asset development plan without increasing cost of supply.

In 2017, I became director of investor relations, participating in analyst and investor meetings. I worked with multidisciplined teams for deep-dive investor field tour and information sessions that highlighted the operations and future development plans of our flagship assets. In 2019, I moved to a position as planning and base reservoir engineering supervisor of our Eagle Ford asset.

The SPE scholarship started me on my way to becoming an engineer in the oilfield. I’m grateful for the assistance it provided to offset the costs of university.  

I would tell today’s SPE-GCS scholarship students that the world needs energy and that innovation and new ideas are key to a sustainable future in our industry. Throughout your college career, continue to develop a love of learning and venture outside your discipline and your comfort zone for inspiration. We’ll need bright new minds to solve future energy challenges.
