Expertise Description

I have more than 40 years experience in the field of Petroleum Drilling with expertise in directional, horizontal, high-angle, and extended-reach drilling, and well configurations. I have experience in drilling equipment and rig operations, contractual dispute, drilling operations management, and in the administration of rig and operating company personnel, as well as in the implementation and administration of safety policies and standards. I thoroughly understand negotiation and administration of drilling-related contracts. I am also familiar with the application of the Drilling Engineering function to drilling and drilling-related activities. Additional, I have worked with abnormally pressured and sloughing shale, shallow gas, managing pressure, and under-balanced drilling conditions.

My professional experience includes Drilling Foreman and Consultant, Drilling Superintendent, Field Drilling Engineer, Drilling Supervisor, Wellsite Supervisor, and Toolpusher.

Relevant Experiences

I am very familiar with ‘standards and practices’ conventionally employed in the drilling of oil and gas wells and have had experience with the responsibilities and accountabilities customarily required of a drilling contractor and his employees whilst employed in the drilling of Marcellus Shale wells in Western Pennsylvania.

I think that my many years’ experience as an oil company company man and drilling contractor’s superintendent would qualify me as an expert in the legal and conventional responsibilities of a company man relative to the issues of this case.
