My technical management experience spans several decades and organizations including universities, government, and corporate. Particular strengths include vision, strategy, planning, and execution of multiple simultaneous projects; personnel supervision and development; budgeting; and effective engagement with a range of diverse constituencies from senior management through the public.
Value of total funded projects managed exceeds $13 million.
Significant Technical Project Management experience includes:
- FRAC Consortium — Engaged with UT leadership team to deepen and expand industry involvement and stakeholder value (with S. Laubach, J. Gale, and J. Olson)
- Subsurface Containment Assurance — Global field assessments, training, and software deployment, ConocoPhillips, ~$2.1 million (with L.E. Summers)
- Sumatra Geodetic Monitoring Program — GPS and geophysics project definition and leadership, ConocoPhillips, ~$5 million
- Geomechanics Research Projects — University of Nevada and The University of Texas at Austin, includes personnel supervision, ~5.6 million
- Canyonlands Grabens Initiative — Research partnership between multiple universities, funded by NASA for 3 separate years
While at ConocoPhillips I managed, individually or as part of collaborative teams, several significant technical programs as listed on my CV. The results were used by the company in areas such as enhancing the safety, production, and value of assets across the company’s global portfolio. I also monitored several industry-university research partnerships including Stanford University’s Rock Fracture Project and The University of Texas at Austin/Bureau of Economic Geology Fracture Research and Applications (FRAC) Consortium as well as being the company’s Subject Matter Expert for reservoir monitoring, subsurface integrity, and containment geomechanics.
A total of $7,762,500 in technical projects were planned and managed for ConocoPhillips between 2012 and March 2015.
A variety of technical projects have been effectively managed including individual and team research as well as multi-university research initiatives. One of my responsibilities at ConocoPhillips involved developing and deploying a geodetic reservoir monitoring system for onshore fields in Indonesia. I was the technical project champion and manager of this planned $5 million/5-year program.
