DIRECTOR OF PETROLEUM TECHNOLOGY
August 2001 ‚ March 2004
for communicating the value of ceramic proppant products to Service Companies
and Operating Oil & Gas Companies. Developed highly technical presentations demonstrating the benefits of using different ceramic proppants in both oil & gas
wells. Designed and developed the concept for a new proppant product, Versaprop,
within Norton Proppants. Directed the testing of Versaprop and other products,
evaluated the results and prepared marketing campaign for Versaprop.
HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES
April 1998 ‚ July 2001
NAL/GOM FBM Solutions team as Technology Leader ‚ Production Enhancement
in April 1998. Responsible for implementation of production enhancement initiatives
for the NAL/GOM FBM. These initiatives include the combination of multiple
PSL services in the production enhancement process. Continued development
of the Sigma Process as a Halliburton product. Developed, directed and taught
a three-week internal school for engineers which initiated them into the
Sigma Process. The school covered log analysis, reservoir evaluation techniques,
stimulation design and many case histories of the integration of these processes.
HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES
August 1995 ‚ April 1998
Joined Halliburton in Denver, Colorado in August 1995. Work involves improving and maintaining the technical level of stimulation services and interpretation provided in the Rocky Mountain region. Improving fracture treatment design, evaluation and implementation along with incorporating the evaluation of production response into the stimulation process are the goals of this position. Participated in the development of the Sigma Process, an integrated approach to stimulation design and evaluation. Transferred to Houston in January 1997. Member of the Houston Business Development Technical Team, responsible for the development of technology process for the improvement of production enhancement procedures.
