Seasoned geoscientist with broad exposure to domestic and international plays. Adept at integrating interpretations and contributions from other disciplines. Comfortable at all stages of the value chain (exploration, appraisal, development, production). Skilled with technical evaluation/review, prospect generation, reservoir characterization, resource estimation, risk/uncertainty assessment and New Business Development. Recognized for flexibility, scalability, attention to detail, innovation, and delivery. I enjoy driving a team to success and mentoring more junior staff, while contributing what I know and learning from others.
Geochemistry, Geology, Geophysics, Paleontology, Sedimentology, Structual Geology
Exploration and production geologist experienced with geophysics and geology while working on multidisciplinary asset teams drilling economically successful wells in both conventional and unconventional plays. Proficient with multiple industry software platforms including Petra and SMT-Kingdom. Expert with planning and oversight for geo-steering. Managed Permian horizontal drilling operations with narrow landing zones. Detailed knowledge of geology of multiple conventional and unconventional resource plays. Expert at basin modeling and pore pressure prediction for successful within AFE wells. Experience with the use of geochemistry to determine source rocks and connectivity of reservoirs. Economic screening, risk assessment, asset evaluations and reserve estimates using SEC guidelines for acquisitions and divestitures. Waterflood and carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery experience in San Andres and Clearfork.
I am a skilled at 3D and 2D seismic interpretation that integrates well control. I generate synthetic seismograms and tie them to the seismic data, resulting in an understanding of the wavelet in the data, the identity of key reflections, the relation between time and depth, and the seismic response to hydrocarbons. With this foundation, I make a seismic interpretation that is the basis for prospects to be identified, defined, and evaluated.
Interpretation software used recently include OpendTect, Petrel, Kingdom, and Decision Space Geosciences.
I received a B.S. in Geology from Texas A&M University, where my courses included four in Petroleum Engineerng. After working for six years as a development geologist in the Gulf of Mexico, I went to the Colorado School of Mines, where I worked in the Reservoir Characterization Project and earned an M.S. in Geophysics. Since then, I have worked as a geophysicist both onshore and offshore, international and domestic, on projects ranging from exploitation to new ventures.
I enjoy using all the available data to understand the rocks in the subsurface and the fluids they contain.
Meticulous, skilled & customer-focused Geophysicist with professional expertise in Seismic processing, Imaging and technology deployment, dedicated with exceptional technical, analytical and statistical skills demonstrated by over 15 years of experience in multi-discipline fields.
Experience in Seismic Processing and Imaging, De-risking prospects, velocity model building and velocity update in complex structures/basins and advanced imaging technologies deployment.
Experience with processing for QI (particularly for inversion) and Pore Pressure Prediction (PPP).
Skilled in identifying and tackling challenges in deploying new technologies and CPU computation requirements to reduce processing costs.
Successfully deployed new technologies for bandwidth extension (Q-derivation and Q-migration), FWI for shallow hazards and reliable shallow velocity model building, Prism RTM for better imaging of hanging salts, de-risking potential salt flanks/edges and welds surfaces. Shared on recent advanced imaging (RTLSM).
Skilled with well logs interpretation and prospect maturation, basin identification and seismic interpretation, integration of subsurface data at all Exploration stages.
