Evaluated producing opportunities in the Gulf of Mexico resulting in identification and assessment of new targets. With a multi-disciplinary team, drilled several successful appraisal and development wells. Advanced Geophysical Interpretation Techniques and Analysis Expertise in 3D seismic structural and stratigraphic interpretation, salt tectonics, reservoir mapping, reservoir characterization, and seismic acquisition & processing. Expert user of latest industry applications for AVO inversion, velocities, seismic attributes, facies classification, and rock physics. 15 years Business and Management experience: Supervised and motivated teams of geoscientists and consultants. Executed departmental budgeting, mentoring, and career development. Effectively led many technical projects by building project plans, leading weekly team meetings, and producing successful team results on time and on budget. Established geoscience consulting company and led company to develop prospects and provide global geophysical consulting. PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE Geophysical Advisor, Paradigm Geophysical - Strategic Consulting, Houston, TX. (March 2007-March 2010) Detected seismic fractures in unconventional basement project and 3 US gas shale projects. Advised and quality-controlled seismic reprocessing, 3D velocity building, and depth conversion. Optimized parameters to highlight discontinuities, generate lineaments, azimuth histograms, and fault & fracture picks. Co-visualized well fracture results with seismic lineaments and fractures in 3D. Successfully detected fractures undetectable by seismic interpreters or competitors--critical for designing optimal horizontal wells and inducing hydraulic fractures. Led 5 offshore shallow hazard detection projects. Performed stratigraphic and seismic interpretation to autopropagate horizons and to autogenerate faults. Analyzed seafloor and other shallow hazards using seismic attributes. GARY R. PEKAREK 5006 Meadow Dawn Court * Katy, Texas 77494 (281) 798-4622 * email@example.com Generated attribute computations, amplitude extractions, and contoured maps. Utilized AVO inversion, facies classification, and geobody detection & opacity visualization to identify gas hydrates, shallow water flow sands, channels, and shallow gas hazards. Convinced clients to move their drilling locations based on detection of shallow hazards. Designed casing program with drilling consultant. Product Marketing Manager, GX Technology, Houston, TX (2006-2007) Developed technical marketing collateral on newly developed seismic processing/imaging algorithms such as Reverse Time Migration (RTM won the "World Oil Technology of the Year" award in 2006). Investigated seismic processing competitors, analyzed geophysical service market, and implemented solutions to achieve marketing goals. President & CEO, Paragon International Consulting, Denver, CO. (2001-2005) Developed business plan, established geoscience consulting company, managed all company facets from finance to marketing to project management to managing teams of employees and consultants. Managed projects to generate high-impact exploration prospects in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Colorado, Utah, and California. Sold prospects to small independents. Managed projects to interpret 3D seismic volumes from deepwater Gulf of Mexico, identifying top of salt, salt flanks, base of salt, and salt welds to establish velocity models for seismic processing. Evaluated economic value of data room contents for clients in Russia and India. Directed evaluation of seismic data and exploration prospectivity for clients in Libya, Brazil, and Yemen. Provided business and geological assessment of offshore Angola exploration for investors. Managed the work program of geoscientist consulting team and administrative staff. ExxonMobil Exploration & Producing (1981-2000) Geophysical Product Manager, ExxonMobil R&D, Dallas, TX. (1997-2000) Coordinated with Landmark to define and deliver effective geoscience software solutions. Achieved "lightning rod" status and facilitated resolution of technical issues. Managed team which tested, packaged, and distributed all new Landmark releases globally. Developed detailed project management methodology as a global reorganization task force leader. Production Geophysicist, Mobil E&P, New Orleans, LA (1994-1997) Performed 3D seismic interpretation of three fields and delineated additional drillable opportunities. Integrated well data, AVO inversion, attribute analysis, and seismic reservoir characterization to produce reservoir maps. Recommended drilling sites, and worked with drilling and completions teams to assess risks and drill several successful appraisal wells and development wells. Led 3D seismic acquisition and processing project a new field. Generated velocity model, interpreted stratigraphy and mapped reservoirs on flank of salt dome. Effectively worked with a multi-specialized, multi-functional team to design and drill successful appraisal wells. GARY R. PEKAREK 5006 Meadow Dawn Court * Katy, Texas 77494 (281) 798-4622 * firstname.lastname@example.org Exploration Geophysicist, Mobil E&P, New Orleans, LA. (1981-1994) Generated prospects for Gulf of Mexico lease sales, resulting in the acquisition of dozens of leases, wildcat design, and 4 discoveries. Devoted majority of endeavors to GOM MMS lease sales--from Texas shelf and state waters (GA and HI) to Louisiana shelf, slope, and deepwater (VR, SMI, EI, SS, EW, and GC) to Mobile Bay. Collaborated with geoscientists and engineers to evaluate hydrocarbon potential, risk, prospect economics, and preparation of wildcat well packages. Performed geophysical analyses including AVO, modeling, velocity analysis, and depth conversion. Evaluated large regional seismic surveys with complex salt configurations, integrated wells, interpreted seismic stratigraphy and identified plays with significant hydrocarbon potential. Pioneered interpretation techniques and established Landmark interpretation workflows. Developed networks and working relationships with peers for purposes of information and ideas sharing. Processed Gulf of Mexico seismic data for 2 years. Tested parameters and generated optimally processed seismic data. Quality controlled outsourced Western Geophysical seismic processing. Directed activities of 2 technicians. Designed seismic acquisition programs for 2D and 3D surveys. Contributed to OBC and conventional seismic acquisition projects for 6 months.
