Resume for Yvette Counts Senior Geologist
I am a senior level geologist with 18 years of combined experience in unconventional and conventional basins along with some geothermal experience. Most recently I was a development geologist spearheading 115,000 acres in the Eagle Ford for EOG Resources. In a single year I generated 40-50% of the division’s development and 25-30% in subsequent years yielding well ROR’s > 60-100%. One of my strong strengths is subsurface mapping which has led to expanding the Austin Chalk subtrend in my area yielding a ROR > 100% and identifying a successful new Lower Eagle Ford target yielding a ROR> 60%. My mapping efforts have also impacted how to strategize development, understanding how the target intervals change and what drives Eagle Ford production in my project areas. Another specialty I have is collaborating and working closely with all multi-disciplinary teams especially Engineering. For example, in working with the Reservoir Team I stay involved with the well economics and I am constantly looking for ways to optimize the well plan to achieve the best ROR and providing guidance on the localized geologic features that would impact the production. With regards to the Completion Team, I work closely with the Completion Engineers on optimizing the frac design for upcoming wells in relation fault crossings, where there are higher strain features and where the well was out of target to mitigate overcapitalization at the stage level.
Prior to my time in the San Antonio Division, I was in the EOG Fort Worth office where I played a pivotal role in expanding the Barnett Oil development program. The former CEO assigned me as the principal geologist for mapping across EOG’s acreage to expand from the NE Muenster Arch carbonate position to EOG’s Central Montague County siliceous development position. With my detailed mapping efforts this uncovered the most prolific region across our acreage generating over 1,000 wells for the company. After accomplishing that task, I worked in the Barnett Gas window where I was tasked with converting wet karsted areas into drier economic wells and was successful there also.
Some additional key roles in my career includes being the principal geologist mapping EOG’s new Point Pleasant position in Ohio which led to identifying the key AOI’s, leasing acreage and the drilling of 3 successful wells. Following the Tyler Division merger, executive management assigned me with the important role to take over the Buda development program and evaluate/map the East Texas Acreage position in the Georgetown, Goodland and Glen Rose formations with regards to continued development or to dissolve the acreage. Finally, I have an extensive conventional work history across the Eastern Shelf, Northern Gulf Coast in Louisiana, Appalachian Basin, Uinta Basin, DJ Basin and Black Warrior Basin.
