PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

 Contract Petroleum Engineer 2009 – Present 

Developed program to return 400 Panhandle Field wells to production for a small independent oil company that purchased 17 leases in Carson and Hutchinson County, Texas. Determined repair work of production equipment ranging from tank batteries, flowlines, pumping units tubing, rods, and downhole pumps needed to return wells to production. Prepared detailed workover procedures including additional perforations, stimulation, cost estimates, and established priorities for returning inactive wells to production. Reactivation of first ten wells increased production from 20 BOPD & 50 MCFD to over 50 BOPD and 125 MCFD at a cost of $6,500 per well. 

 Consulting Engineer 1994 – 2009

Worked with Sol Smith Petroleum Engineer Inc. in Austin, Texas. Prepared Railroad Commission research, walk-through permitting, State agency research, and regulatory compliance reviews. Provided turn-key saltwater disposal permitting, production and completion report filing, and other professional services and consulting.

Designed streets, drainage, and piping required for fresh water and sewer systems for residential and municipal projects. Prepared construction drawings, cost estimates, and engineering reports for City, County, State, and Federal regulatory approval. Reviewed and prepared comments for proposed Planned Development Districts (PDD), annexation, preliminary and final plats, subdivision/site development, and site development plans for compliance with City, County, State, and Federal regulation and acceptable engineering practices. Provided office and field engineering support for all approved water, wastewater, street, and drainage capital improvement projects funded by certificate of obligations. Reviewed and recommended payment for all consulting engineering and construction contract pay requests. Managed and directed daily activity of City’s engineering and inspection personnel.

Senior Petroleum Engineer for J.M. Huber 1982-1994

Provided reservoir, production, drilling, remedial, and completion engineering for all phases of well production from drilling, completion, remedial and workover, and abandonment operations. Worked closely with exploration department to determine potential reserves and economic evaluation of exploration prospects and property acquisitions. Prepared well drilling prognosis specifying total drilling depths, casing sizes, cement and drilling mud programs to allow well to be drilled in accordance to the latest Field and Statewide Rules. Prepared recompletion, workover recommendations and procedures, property evaluations, reservoir studies, reserve and production forecasts, economic analysis, and plugging procedures for company’s exploration and production activities. Evaluated downhole electric logs, determined perforation intervals, and made casing point election recommendations Evaluated producing properties to identify potential unexploited reserves. Worked with engineering consultants on special projects and preparation of annual company reserve reports. Monitored daily production and prepared workover and re-completion procedures to improve production. Worked with production foremen to reduce monthly operating expenses. Prepared final well analysis for marginally economic oil and gas wells. For wells with no uphole recompletion or stimulation potential, recommendations were made to either plug and abandon the property or place it for sale.

Production Engineer for Conoco and Tenneco 1976-1982

Provided a broad scope of subsurface and production engineering in conjunction with exploration and other departments to help maximize the company’s profitability through maintaining production levels and minimizing operating expenses in a safe and environmentally sound manner.
