Experienced SCADA and automation and control systems administrator with extensive technical background in SCADA host development and design, automation and control system design, data management, facilities design and network architecture. Impressive track record of 23 years hands on experience in oil and gas exploration and production related to daily operations, strategic planning, security, measurement, training and Environmental, Health and Safety. Successfully designed, implemented and supported 9 SCADA host systems and numerous automation and control systems in 3 Business Units. Extensive work on CapX and LOE cost reduction, failure rate prevention, facilities operational efficiencies, communication network efficiencies and artificial lift analysis and optimization through data acquisition, customized data tools, data optimization and training. Designed and supervised implementation of many projects to reduce costs and improve analysis, optimization and efficiencies of ~4500 wells and facilities. Contributed to and supported design, implementation, operation and continuous improvement of 6 Decision Support Centers (DSCs). Combined, DSCs provided an average of 4.5% (~3000 Bbl oil and ~11000 MCF) production uplift per day during first year of operation. Advanced DSC tools, reports and data contributed to additional 1% uplift, 20% decline in failure rates, improved facility designs and accelerated production rates through advancements in artificial design and rapid implementation schedules.
