Director and co-founder of the company with Peter Gutteridge. Lead geologist responsible for multiclient work in Mexico and Northern Arabia (Iraq, Syria, Jordan).
Broad production, development and exploration experience
Manipulation of dynamic and static data
Sequence stratigraphy from logs and seismic
Expertise in petrography, geochemistry, diagenesis, karstic and tectonic fractured reservoir systems
Extensive experience of working with poor quality datasets
Integration of specialist work with petroleum geology
Director and Co-founder of the company.
Responsible for carbonate studies mainly applied to exploration programs involving sequence stratigraphy, core logging, microfacies and diagenetic studies and external training.
Experience in software includes Petrel, CoreCAD and Petrog.
Carbonate exploration experience covers the whole range of Palaeozoic, Mesozoic and Tertiary carbonate systems using thin section, core, wireline log, outcrop, to seismic-scale data. These studies have been aimed at assessing new venture opportunities, the assessment of acreage using outcrop and sub-surface data and the study of outcrops as play analogues to analyse different elements of geological risk in play types.
Carbonate sedimentologist, working on proprietary and multi-client projects
Experience in microfacies analysis through thin section observations and point counting
Experience in thin-section biostratigraphy
ArcGIS, Petrel, CoreCAD and Petrog software user.
Consultant geologist working on industry research projects.
Responsible for Basin analysis in Rift-to-drift Conjugate Margins project: investigating the tectono-stratigraphic evolution of the North Atlantic Conjugate Margins (East Coast Canada, UK/Ireland, Iberia).
Research into rift-to-drift margin evolution theory and developing regional exploration workflows. Focus on basin analysis integration in conjugate margin studies.
Experience in varied disciplines such as plate tectonics, dynamic topography, subsidence analysis, source-to-sink, palaeo-drainage and heatflow modeling.
Assistant geologist working with the directors on proprietary and multi-client projects.
Experience of clastic sedimentological, petrographic and diagenetic studies mainly from North Sea reservoirs of Permian and Jurassic age. Understanding of Rotliegend aeolian reservoirs supported by field trip to the Namib desert.
Background in Geology.
Responsible for office maintenance and day to day enquiries.
