Jayhawk Consulting

Self Employed as a well site geologist throughout Rocky Mountain region. Responsibilities included formation show evaluation and complete geologic reporting. Geologic reports included well location description and known production relation, personnel information, companies and techniques used, drilling parameters, mud reports, and engineering information. Detailed reporting on lithologies, sample descriptions, show information, and initial completion were included. Copies of open hole electric logs with each formation clearly marked were attached. Potential pay zones were identified and evaluated using gas instruments tied into the drilling mud circulation system. These instruments included a Total Hydrocarbon Analyzer (THA) and a Gas Chromatograph (GC). Gained experience with several different sets of instruments including filiment style (hotwire) as well as Flame Ionization Detectors (FID). Drill cuttings were collected and analyzed under the microscope for inner granular porosity, grain size and shape, as well as oil stain color and type. Petroleum fluorescence and solvent cut were reported using a ultra violet black box. All reporting included a complete computer generated digitized mudlog showing a graphic depiction of the entire well bore. Included in the mudlog were lithologies, drill rate, total hydrocarbon and gas chromatography, detailed sample descriptions, engineering terms, dates, drilling parameters, graphic porosity and show information, as well as location legals, and names and titles of personnel involved. Ultimately pipe decisions were discussed with the prospect geologist using these mudlogs and show reports collected in the field. Duties also included drilling rig supervision in shallow plays (under 2000'). These responsibilities included casing point decisions, casing string configuration, cementing, pipe tallies,etc. Well site experience includes drilling through over-pressured zones, directional and horizontal drilling, air drilling, and drilling while flaring. Worked part time in the office of Monaco Services, Denver, Colorado in 1992 and 1993. Responsibilities included sales, client relations, operations and final reporting. Worked part time in the office of Barrett Resources, Gillette, Wyoming in 1998 and 1999. Duties involved mapping, operations, and final reporting.
