We found an expert who had a degree in chemical engineering as well as a Master of Science and a Ph.D. in chemical and petroleum engineering from top universities. He had been a professor for over 30 years in a prominent university’s petroleum and geosystems engineering department. Additionally, he ran a consulting company focused on providing engineering services to the oil and gas industry and had co-founded two companies in the energy and petroleum space that he successfully sold. Finally, he was widely published in his research on hydraulic fracturing and was a named inventor on over 20 patents.
Additionally, we identified an expert on petroleum engineering who had a BS and MS in the subject from a well-known university. In his 30-year career in the oil and gas industry, he had developed a broad expertise working as an engineer at several prominent companies and served as a consultant to the industry specializing in improving gas recovery in “tight” reservoirs. He was president of his own company which had invented a software program to aid in hydraulic fracture design. Finally, he had published numerous papers on reservoir engineering and served as a testifying witness on several cases in the oil and gas industry.
