CV/Resume Details
1. Summary (Cover Letter) - CV/Resume Part 1 [Mandatory]

I currently have 12 years experience in the oil and gas industry working my way up from mudlogging to wellsite and operations geology via operator and service company posts. I currently live in Canada and rotate to the UK for work. I am also doing a part-time research degree so am only interested in rotational or part-time positions in 2009. I am open to offers from mining companies as well as those in the oil and gas sector.

2. Work Experience - CV/Resume Part 2 [Mandatory]

November 2007 to Present
Consultant Wellsite Geologist
I am currently contracted to Chevron Upstream Europe as a Wellsite Geologist on an exploration and appraisal programme West of Shetland in the UK North Atlantic. Prior to that I was contracted to Esso Angola based in Luanda and working offshore in Block 15.
As a wellsite geologist I am responsible for ensuring that the geological objectives of the well are met, that the acquisition of the geological data is carried out safely and as per programmes, interpretion of the data at the wellsite and reporting to the project teams as well as communicating closely with all personnel involved at the wellsite. This responsibility includes overseeing the acquisition of and interpretating data acquired from gamma ray, resistivity, density, neutron, formation pressure while drilling, MDT, and sidewall coring tools. Good communications are critical, especially as the offshore team consists of many nationalities with very varied backgrounds. When I am not required at the wellsite during a rotation I work in the office mainly with the job of producing post-well geological reports and composite logs.

September 2005 to November 2007
Self-employed - Limited company
Consultant Operations/Wellsite Geologist
Initially assigned as Operations Geologist at Chevron in Aberdeen, Scotland with responsibilities for well planning on a 3 well West of Shetland appraisal project. The project included stewarding shallow hazards site survey work, planning of geological data and sample acquisition, and the production of geological programs. Planning and oversight of contractor work was also required, as was close liaison with the drilling and geoscience team in all stages of planning. In May 2006 I suspended working to spend the summer in Canada with a view to rejoining the team as one of the lead wellsite geologists on the project when drilling was scheduled to begin in July/August 2006.
Due to continuous rig delays, the spud of the first well was October 2006 and I began working as lead wellsite geologist in November 2006. I had the responsibility of supervising, advising, mentoring and taking advice from the team of LWD, mudlogging, coring and wireline engineers to ensure that all geological objectives were met. My work involved interpreting the geological and drilling data to assess the formations being drilled and the presence of hydrocarbons, working as a team with all other relevant personnel from the service companies, the drilling crews and client representatives to ensure that the wells were drilled, cored and logged safely and efficiently. I was required to pick casing and coring points based on the geological data collected. Reporting verbally and in written form to the project team in town in a timely manner was a crucial part of the job. The wells were very high profile within the company on a global scale and involved extensive logging and coring.

January 2003 to August 2005
ExxonMobil Exploration Company
Operations Geologist
From 1st July 2004 I worked in the ExxonMobil Exploration Company Operations Geology Core Group in Houston. I was responsible for preparing pre-drill shallow drilling hazards reports for international exploration, production and development wells based on site surveys, geotechnical information, offset well analysis, pore pressure predictions and seismic interpretation and mapping. I was required to prepare formal documents regarding each project I undertook and was also required to give oral presentations up to Vice President level. Good communication skills and technical excellence were required in order to report accurately and effectively on the findings of each study to colleagues who had a wide variety of backgrounds and varying status in the company.
Prior to my transfer to Houston I was remotely deployed to Mobil North Sea Limited (MNSL), an affiliate office of ExxonMobil. MNSL had 2 drilling/production platforms and 1 semi submersible rig in the North Sea. I had responsibility for geological operations on all UK operated rigs. The job involved working very closely with the geoscientists, drilling engineers, and service company personnel while planning and managing geological operations. I was responsible for well planning, well surveillance, post well reporting, data QC and management, management of wellsite geologists, raising service requests and approval of invoices. I was also involved in the management of site surveys. I also covered operations in the Stavanger office where I was responsible for planning the geological operations of a potentially overpressured exploration well, creating coring and casing protocols, and overseeing an extensive wireline program that included the use of high profile technologies.

October 2001 January 2003
Mobil North Sea Limited, Union Row, Aberdeen
Geological Operations/ Formation Evaluation Technician
This was a contract support role working alongside the Operations Geologist, drilling team, project geoscientists and Petrophysicist. I assisted with site survey studies and government applications, well planning documents, geological data management and log interpretation using UNIX based software, QC of geological logs and reports from operated wells, submission of service requests, and approval of invoices. Following on from this I accepted a staff position as Operations Geologist in the same department.

November 2000 to October 2001
HRH Limited, Silverburn Place, Bridge of Don, Aberdeen
Geological Sales/Operations Geology
Responsible for all aspects of sales and marketing of geological software, gas detection equipment, wellsite geologists, and geologging services in the UK and Norway. This included giving software demonstrations and presentations, producing and submitting bids, visiting existing and potential clients regularly, dealing with queries by telephone, email, and letter, manning stands at exhibitions, planning advertising campaigns, and researching markets using industry publications and the Internet. I also had a role which involved organizing the contract wellsite geologists for BP operated wells.

February 2000 to November 2000
Oilfield Systems, Enterprise Road, Chilworth, Southampton
Geoscience Software Support
Based at the Shell Expro office in Aberdeen, I managed and supported multiple licenses of a large geological database and correlation package owned by Oilfield Systems. The work involved UNIX database administration, supporting and advising geoscientists and giving software training courses to groups and individuals.

January 1998 to February 2000
HRH Limited, Silverburn Place, Bridge of Don, Aberdeen
Operations Geologist/Wellsite Geologist
The first three months with HRH were spent at Talisman in the Exploration Department. I continued the operations geology work I had done through Bryant Engineering as detailed below, but due to cutbacks in Talisman I began working as a wellsite geologist in March 1998.
During my time as a wellsite geologist I was mainly contracted to Shell Expro in the Central North Sea and spent over a year on the Guillemot West, Kingfisher and Bittern developments. This gave me valuable experience in drilling horizontal wells, working on high pressure and high temperature wells, and geosteering. Most of the work involved being on twenty-four hour call at the wellsite, therefore effective time management was essential. I was required to describe and interpret the geological data, make decisions on picking casing and coring points, supervise the mudlogging, LWD, and wireline operations, and communicate efficiently and effectively with other rig personnel and the onshore geologists.

March 1997 to Januray 1998
Bryant Engineering, Union Street, Aberdeen
Contracted to Talisman Energy as Technical Assistant and Operations Geologist
I had a ten month contract as a technical assistant in the Exploration Department of Talisman. This involved assisting the operations geologist and project geologists with data management, rig schedules, government applications, well planning documents, and geological presentations. In May 1997 I was offered the position of operations geologist which involved planning and management of geological operations relating to Talisman operated wells.

February 1996 to March 1997
Halliburton Drilling Systems
Surface Data Logging Engineer
Duties included monitoring and reporting on drilling parameters, geological samples, and gas levels on offshore drilling installations. Effective communication was very important. I was required to communicate closely with a wide variety of personnel including drilling crews, directional drillers, geologists, mud engineers, cementers, casing crews, MWD/LWD engineers, wireline engineers, solids control engineers, and oil company representatives.
