Dear Sir, Madam,

You have probably realized, just as I have, that most subsurface data acquired by most operators is vastly underexploited compared to its full potential as a decision-making tool and a creator of project economic value.  As a Senior Geologist and with extensive experience in the oil and gas industry, I’ve observed time and time again the avoidable failure to leverage the full value of data stemming from various causes; lack of knowledge of fit-for-purpose workflows, doubts in organizational ability to timely execute said workflows, the challenges of integrating diverse data sources across widely different scales, and/or the lack of ability to instantly access appropriate high-quality data as it is needed.

Directly addressing these challenges is where I bring the most value.

I have extensive experience working with Techlog Wellbore platform and with Petrel E&P software platform also deploying Studio Petrel and Studio Techlog data transfer cross-disciplinary collaboration strategies and integrated cross platform workflows to improve reservoir modeling for better understanding of reservoir distribution, more accurate reserve estimation, and overall reduced risk and uncertainty in the E&P lifecycle (work I presented at the American Association of Petroleum Geologists annual meeting). My basic philosophy is to be comfortable staying ahead of the cutting edge and thus to always be prepared to deploy cutting-edge training techniques when they are identified as practical for the problems at hand.

My experience in Petrel software spans the full G&G workflows from various data loading techniques, seismic interpretation, well correlation analysis, structural modeling, and property population to reservoir fluid volume estimation including uncertainty and sensitivity analysis workflows.

I also bring a set of soft skills that I believe will be strongly appreciated. During my career, I have cultivated strong values of open communication, independence, cooperation, and accountability to the team. My people-centric nature, creativity, my eagerness to please, and learn new software and techniques as needed, attention to detail, and my focus on building strong working relationships have all been valuable assets throughout my career.

Please review my resume for a complete collection of my work history and accomplishments. I would be thrilled to learn more about potential job offers that would match my background and experience. Thank you for your time and consideration.
