I have been in the Oil and Gas service industry since 1998. My career began at OPSCO. This was my introduction to various mechanical/electronic downhole recorders, their calibration methods and understanding how they performed during testing. I later moved to the reporting department to create reports for flow and buildup, buildup, fall-off, and static gradient tests using both mechanical and electronic. I also attended SAIT to better understand the industry, receiving a certificate in Petroleum Engineering. I learned a lot from a few good people during my time there.
As opportunity would have it, OPSCO led to Delaney Energy Services later to become Pure Energy Services. It was there, under the tutelage of a few extraordinary people, I experienced the many diversities of Welltest Analysis.
After 12 years, changes in the "patch" had me leaving Pure Energy. Ten months later, FMC Technologies contacted me with an opportunity to work under the reporting department umbrella for the well optimization division. Being a quick study, I acquired knowledge about surface gauges, fluid shots and the government requirements by Oil & Gas companies concerning Abandonment and Reclamation of oil and gas wells located in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.
FMC Technologies then sold the assets from the Wireline and Well Optimization divisions to Reliance Oilfield Services in 2016 who opted not to retain the services of the department. It was then I decided to begin this new journey and create my own opportunity.
