Resource Development  and Reservoir Performance Optimization

Multidisciplinary team collaborator with broad upstream experience (production, exploration, development) in world-wide hydrocarbon basins (Gulf of Mexico, West Africa, East Canada, South America). Partner with reservoir engineers to integrate dynamic reservoir performance with static subsurface understanding, improving results and identifying and capitalizing on infill and behind pipe opportunities.

Integrator with solid field development foundation from start-up, deep-water developments to mature, nearshore field exploitation.Generate comprehensive subsurface characterizations by leveraging extensive geologic, geophysical, and petrophysical data interpretation and integration skills. Advance team capabilities by developing interns and new geoscientist through formal class instruction and informal workroom guidance as senior advisor and mentor.
