Determined reservoir volumes for remaining reserves determinations. • British Columbia: Worked with team in Calgary, Alberta for Coastal Oil and Gas. Reviewed geology and reserves potential for various properties in Northern British Columbia. • Colorado: Reviewed geology, economics and reserves potential of projects in the Denver Basin. Also, evaluated coal bed methane reserves potential for several producing properties in the Raton Basin. • Utah: Evaluated producing coal bed methane properties in the vicinity of Price, Utah. Mapped coal volumes and made reserves determinations utilizing decline curves, and coal-gas volume analyses. • Oklahoma: Mapped gas fields in the thrust belt play of southeastern Oklahoma. Determined reservoir volumes of fault compartmentalized traps, and identified and development drilling opportunities. • West Texas: Provided geological evaluations of Atoka, Morrow, and Ellenburg gas fields in Texas and New Mexico. Studies determined reservoir characteristics, remaining reserves potential, and identified new drilling opportunities. o Seagull Energy Corporation. (Ocean Energy): Houston, Texas 1996-1997. Worked on major gas field expansion project in northern Montana and southern Saskatchewan. Investigations included detailed cross-section work, subsurface mapping of structure and various isopach data related to gas productivity. Conducted additional geological studies of depositional environments as related to regional trends in Canada and the U.S. In
  3. 3. addition, provided geological input into gas reserves studies and economic analysis of the play. Upon completion of the study, assisted in the establishment of two large federal units. o Marsh Operating Company: Denver, Colorado 1995-1996. Provided geological input for divestiture of company’s oil and gas assets in Montana, Colorado, Kansas, the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles, the Western Anadarko Basin and the Permian Basin.
