Confidential Company           Houston, TX

Senior Reservoir Engineer- Contract assignment       2008 to 2009

Provided YE 08 reserve, investment, and expense documentation  using PHD-WIN, plus identified $20M re-development opportunities.

Conducted field study to identify 50 PBP & PUD opportunities; obtained 200 production records from Dwights, and conducted geological / engineering review of 100 mapped fault blocks. Analyzed each reservoir drive mechanism, authored assessment of each fault-block development history, and created specific well-work proposal for obtaining remaining reserves.

Confidential Company           Houston, TX

Senior Reservoir Engineer         2006-2008

Confidential Major Independent – Provided reserves data to Netherland, Sewell & Associates: Developed Q1 & Q2 08 new drilling result reserve bookings for proprietary shale gas horizontal drilling program in Arkoma Basin, Fayetteville Shale, Overton, and Marcellus Shale.

Created Aries database and PowerPoint drilling results presentation. Reviewed drilling pattern, horizontal leg length, number of frac stages, and surface microseismic measured frac orientation & length. Optimized productivity by reviewing volume of pumped proppant effects to forecast GUR.

Provided reserves data to Ryder Scott Company: Developed YE 07 reserves documentation for $30M re-development of newly acquired GOM shelf properties for company reserve adds (PUD, PBP) and changes (PDP).

Evaluated all projects in PEEP (using decline curve analysis and volumetrics) to develop YE Budget. Coordinated operating costs, project timing, and investment input from Production Department; fields included newly acquired Gulf of Mexico shelf assets.

Provided reserves data to Cawley, Gillespie & Associates, Consultant: Developed YE 06 reserves documentation for $10M redevelopment of newly acquired property; reserves included adds (PUD, PBP) and changes (PDP).

Evaluated all projects in Aries and performed wellbore utility studies of shut-in and low-rate wells to identify and assess recompletion and re-drill opportunities; extended life of field, which enhanced cashflow and project ROR.

Facilitated successful field-work implementation, additional reserve, production, and accelerated cashflow by providing management-ready well-work descriptions, reserves, and cash flow projections. Improved interpretation of early field performance by researching old well files, analyzing logs, correlating petrophysical information, and amending maps; increased ROR on field purchase vs. initial forecast. Collaborated with geology on prospect risk analysis by recommending purchase of Rose & Associates – Prospect Risk Analysis Suite; subsequently calculated single zone probabilistic resource estimation, chance factor determination, and multi zone amalgamated prospect resource distribution for multiple zones.

MERRILL LYNCH   Philadelphia, PA

Financial Advisor        2000 to 2005

POGO PRODUCING COMPANY  Houston, TX

District Petroleum Engineer (1995 to 1998) | Senior Petroleum Engineer (1998 to 2000)

1995 to 2000 Directed all aspects of managing petroleum production fields for Company. Field assignments included: Thailand offshore (Tantawan, Benchamas, Maliwan), Texas onshore (Lopeno), New Mexico onshore (Lea Co. fields) and GOM OCS (Louisiana State Lease 340, EC 334/335 and WC 252/253).

Key projects details:

Generated $50M for Company by identifying behind-pipe and undeveloped reserves in existing fields. Identified the following: 200 gas zones for commingling in Lopeno Field, South Texas; 500 oil zones for commingling in Southeast New Mexico; 30 partially depleted gas zones ready for new production, and 200 gas zones for commingling in Tantawan Field, Offshore Thailand.

Originated and designed field development program for $100M Benchamas-A and B fields, with 25 horizontal oil wells, gas wells and water flood injection wells; oil wells designed for 3000 BOPD productivity. Also originated and designed a field development program for E. Cameron 334-E consisting of two 100 MMcfd completions.

Monitored outside operated properties, including Pogo’s 4% interest in Mobil-operated sidetracking of WC 352 A-3 to an alternate location.  Recognized bypassed zone of interest in openhole section of well after operator deemed well dry hole.  Well subsequently completed successfully.  Partners BIAPO. Conducted reservoir modeling for waterflood projects using Gemini Solutions–Merlin & Apprentice mapping & simulation software.

Led nodal analyses using Dwight’s PERFORM software; also evaluated reserves and cash flow using Munro Garrett-ARIES software, and retrieved production data using DWIGHT’S CD ROM and online services.

AGIP PETROLEUM Houston, TX

Senior Reservoir Engineer      1991 to 1995

Collaborated with Kaverner to implement deepwater subsea development and tieback to host platform of $20M Agip EB 112/156/157 field; selected wellhead, umbilical and control equipment. Also conducted DST design and testing for wells from semi-submersible drilling rig.

Also worked on other deepwater projects valued at $2M total, including Agip GB 208/252; handled DST design and testing from semi submersible drilling rig.

Initiated, authored, and conducted all Company-sponsored reservoir engineering partner meetings; provided recommendations for stimulation, cased-hole logging, workovers, recompletions, development drilling, and enhanced oil recovery projects. Secured partner consent for participation and initiated field work to achieve mechanical and economic success.

Operated $25M offshore water-flood at G1 102; novel completions incorporated continuous down hole pressure monitoring to dictate initiation / maintenance of water-flood injection while still above volatile oil bubble-point pressure.

Designed, implemented, and operated $8M offshore gas-flood of oil reservoir at SM 175; novel completions incorporated stacked series of multiple sliding sleeves to control expanding gas-flood front breakthrough.

Monitored water-flood voidage balance in two operated water-floods in West Delta 88 / 89, which improved flood front conformance and generated $4M in incremental DCF.

Oversaw outside operated high-producing Norphlet gas operations in Mobil-operated Mobile Bay 822/823 (“Mary Ann”) and horizontal attic oil redevelopment program in Shell-operated MC 194/195/150/151 (“Cognac” 1023’ WD).

As Company lead representative for evaluation of properties for acquisition, attended data rooms for Gulf of Mexico, Gulf of Suez, and Columbia.

Conducted reservoir engineering studies and wellbore utility field studies, and supervised three contract reservoir simulation studies by Intera and Petresim, which employed VIP and ECLIPSE software; identified additional reserves and accelerated all reserves depletion, which resulted in better project DCF metrics.

Individually evaluated all company US reserves and cash flow for SEC using ARIES software.  Interacted with DeGolyer & MacNaughton on Agips’ outside operated reserves determinations.
