D. Griffin has over 20 years experience in exploration geology,
exploitation geology and oil and gas production. His multi-faceted
industry experience in all phases of exploration, drilling
and production processes gives him a unique perspective
on exploratory efforts.
For the past 8 years Mr. Griffin has served the industry
as a petroleum geologist / oil and gas consultant. Areas
of activity in Texas include the Bend Arch, Eastern Shelf,
Permian Basin, Ft. Worth Basin, Gulf Coast onshore and Panhandle
of Texas. Consulting efforts in Oklahoma have been in the
Golden Triangle and Sooner Trend. In addition to performing
prospect/property review and generation, log and lease analysis,
mapping both manually and digitally, he has also installed
a secondary recovery project (waterflood) including facility
design and installation, re-entries, drilling, wellsite
geology, and completion of all wells.
From 1997 to 1999, Mr. Griffin was also on a retained status
with Pittencrieff America, Inc. (PAI). Under this retainer,
he serviced PAI geological needs, as well as, collaborated
properties between PAI and King Ranch Energy. Combined digital
mapping efforts with King Ranch geotechnical staff resulted
in numerous drilled wells and the collaboration generated
two 3D seismic shoots.
Previous to his independent efforts, Mr. Griffin served
Mustang Oil & Gas Corporation initially supervising
production operations and performing geology for the North
Texas area. Eventually he was named the Mid Continent Divisionís
Exploitation Geologist for North Texas and the Texas Panhandle.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology
from Hardin-Simmons University Mr. Griffin worked for Jim
Walker, a Consulting Petroleum Geologist, and then as the
lone geologist for three independent oil and gas companies:
Vinson Energy, Griffin Resources and Wagman Petroleum. Drilling
was predominately in the Bend Arch and Eastern Shelf with
efforts under Wagman Petroleum being one of the first companies
to introduce horizontal drilling technology in the Eastern
Shelf area. Additional drilling efforts expanded the limits
of the prolific Ft. Chadbourne Odom Lime Field in Coke and
Runnels County, Texas resulting in the further drilling
of over 50 wells.
