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

Dear Sir,

My attached detailed resume demonstrates my versatile geographic and technology exposure as a top performing successful oil and gas explorationist. The last page of my detailed resume defines my continual history of discoveries and drill-bit experience. My successful drilling experience, proof of my technological and prospect generation skillsets, ranges from extensional, salt withdrawal and compressional tectonic basins. During my career, I have generated, proposed and drilled over 235 wells averaging 9 wells per year in both exploration and development roles. Also, you will note my significant experience in supervising seismic field acquisition and processing projects. I also have significant experience in reserve acquisitions as a specialist in finding "The Diamond in the Rough." While managing the Sonat Minerals Fee 500,000 acres I gained much experience in leasing/licensing.

A synopsis of my explorationist background of 20+ years in the U.S. domestic O&G industry is as follows;

1) Generated, proposed and drilled over 235 wells.
2) Of these 185 were development wells and 50 were exploratory wells.
3) I have experience in 7 unique basin types including compressional, extensional and salt tectonics where my activities included regional studies, prospect generating and evaluations plus the drilling of many successful wells in both structural and stratigraphic traps.
4) Recommended Farm-in or 2nd party submittals for successfully discovered reserves.
5) Supervised hundreds of 2D & 3D miles of seismic field design and acquisition projects.
6) Supervised thousands of 2D & 3D miles of seismic processing projects.
7) Supervised &/or mentored E&P staff in multiple positions throughout my career.
8) Experience in mergers, reserve acquisitions and divestitures.
9) Historically ranked as the top performing geophysicist / explorationist.
10) Kingdom user since 1993.

I look forward to further discussions about how I can add value to your clients.

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


2008-2009 Newfield Exploration Company Senior Geophysicist
Tulsa, Oklahoma

Generated multiple Upper Morrow & Springer Sandstone prospects located in Wheeler and Beckham Counties. Created an interpretation and processing methodology to substantially lower the risk of defining the Upper Morrow’s porosity development.

Defined significant anisotropic velocities to design the lateral target windows of multiple horizontal Granite Wash wells through 3D data integration.

Lead the effort on a 3D Depth Migration reprocessing project in the horizontal Woodford Shale to resolve the Atoka Shale’s regionally extensive significant anisotropic velocity anomaly. This project was critical to maintaining the present drilling schedule by minimizing operational expenses and maximizing the proven reserves and increased daily production.

Interpreted 3D surveys to delineate the complex faulting patterns in the Woodford Shale to design the lateral target windows of multiple wells.

Fulfilled request by Manager to add significant value to the exploration department through my high level of performance, drilling experience and my holistic approach of the integration of seismic acquisition, processing and interpretation integrated with geology and engineering.

1998-2007 Anadarko Petroleum Corp Project Geophysical Advisor
Kerr McGee Oil and Gas Geophysical “Consultant”
Westport Oil & Gas Company Geophysicist Supervisor
Senior Geophysicist
Belco Oil and Gas Company Exploration Manager
Dallas & Houston, Texas Senior Geophysicist

Evaluated multiple reserve acquisitions to locate and define the value of PUDs, Probables & Possibles. Successfully added value to significant acquisitions, i.e. United in South Texas ($360MM), JW in North Louisiana ($120MM) and Smith in Liberty County ($110MM). My role, in addition to the above, was to find the undefined “Diamond in the Rough” value.

Testified and classified as an Expert Witness in Blanchard vs El Paso in a 2005 State of Arkansas. Plaintiff sued based upon his supposition of his surface rights super-ceding mineral rights.

Recommended the successful drilling of a step-out to Spaulding Field in McMullen County. This resulted in a 15 Bcfe Wilcox discovery that included an additional four exploitation locations.

Proposed the drilling of two exploratory Vicksburg tests in Liberty County both resulting in discoveries with gross reserves totaling 7 Bcfe.

Generated Willis Marsh Field discovery, located in the Downdip Yegua of Liberty County. This new field discovery included five exploitation wells yielding 21 Bcfe and a deeper pool Cook Mountain discovery adding an additional 17 Bcfe.

Generated, recommended and drilled 58 Downdip Yegua & Cook Mountain wells over a three year period resulting in a 78% successful rate including exploration and exploitation plays.

Divested, for Anadarko Petroleum, the remaining PDP, PUDs, Probables and Possibles of the Downdip Yegua and Cook Mountain production located in Liberty County, Texas.

Evaluated, over 150 external proposals located in East & West Texas, Texas Gulf Coast, North & South Louisiana, Oklahoma, California, Deepwater GOM, Argentina, Venezuela and Ecuador. Multiple discoveries were made per my recommendations based upon their technical merits and the management of limited capital constraints.

Sole geophysicist for a 900 Bcfe company, managing a $2.5 million annual seismic budget, during a three year period resulting in the acquisition and processing of four 3D surveys totaling 200 square miles and the reprocessing of an additional four 3D surveys totaling 270 square miles.

1985 – 1998 Sonat Exploration Supervisor of Geophysics
Tyler, Texas Exploration Manager
Shreveport, Louisiana Senior Geophysicist
Houston, Texas

Coordinated region’s drilling program, by supervising eight geologists and three geophysicists, resulting in increased volumes and booked reserves for the top two performing quarters.

Participated in the evaluation and defining of the PUDs, Probable & Possible value of twelve closed acquisitions over a three year period located primarily in East Texas.

Responsible for the Ark-La-Tex area, overseeing three geophysicists, and a $3 million annual seismic budget while also personally generating successfully drilled prospects.

Directed development of AVO technology to successfully drill a North Louisiana 15 Bcfe Hosston discovery plus generate three additional prospects. This was the first AVO success in the Mesozoic Basins, to my knowledge.

Developed and acquired a 60 square mile 3D survey to delinate the Cotton Valley Reef potential over Sonat HBP and leasehold property delineating 120 Bcf in proven reserves.

Drilled an average of 15 exploitation, outstep or exploratory wells per year within the Hosston, Cotton Valley Sandstone, Cotton Valley Limestone and Smackover in North Louisiana / East Texas over a ten year period.

Initiated and supervised the acquisition and processing in addition to performing the interpretation of Sonat Exploration’s first onshore 3D seismic survey, 22 square miles, to evaluate a field extension opportunity offsetting Double ‘A’ Wells Field in Polk County, Texas.

Supervised 550 miles of new proprietary 2D seismic data acquisition and processing coordinated with the reprocessing of 2000 miles of 2nd party data that defined over 40 prospects in North Louisiana.

Generated, recommended and drilled two new fields West Simsboro, 35 Bcfe and North Bryceland, 15 Bcfe located in North Louisiana encompassing a total of 9 wells.

Evaluated and managed 500,000 acres of Sonat Mineral Fee acreage in West & Southwest Louisiana resulting in the discovery of two fields plus four additional exploitation wells. The proven reserve base totaled 1 MMBO and 7 Bcf.
