Operations Geologist11/2010 to CurrentAnadarko Petroleum CorportationThe Woodlands, TX
Integrated team member of multiple geologic asset plays throughout the US, Gulf of Mexico, Mozambique, and Brazil.
Plan wells from inception of development objective through a drillable well on paper. Work closely with Reservoir, Land, Regulatory, and Drilling teams to pick surface locations, lateral lengths, penetration points, step-outs, noteworthy offset production, and all other aspects of well planning while maintaining the field rules.
Finalize well plats and wells to drill. Build and finalize geoprogs from final plats, structure maps, offset data, and basis of well design. Interpret well data and make adjustment to structure maps as needed.
Produce and upkeep multiple horizon structure maps for the geologic operations and development teams.
Geosteer curves and laterals on 1-3 rigs lines for duration of drilling operations 24 hours a day.
Make real-time well trajectory decisions and communicate on-going operations for the well.
QC mudlog and LWD data regularly while drilling.
Build and provide TD summaries after lateral TD.
Provide expanded knowledge of formation evaluation operations, techniques, and technology.
Coordinate all formation evaluation efforts.
Recommend Mudlogging, LWD, and wireline services to the asset team.
MWD Operator06/2010 to 11/2010Phoenix Technology ServicesNorth Dakota
Provided quality service to EOG and Kodiak Oil and Gas by running mud pulse and EM telemetry tools on multiple drilling rigs in North Dakota.
Set up surface software, recorded data, built / tested tools, and refurbished used tools.
