Dave McGee

MR. DAVE McGEE has worked in many of the world's shelf and deepwater plays for 32 years on projects including exploration through development. He is experienced in all phases of clastic plays life cycles resulting in a rounded perspective that can come to bear on any project. A majority of his experience is in deep water depositional systems, exploration and development. He has worked on most of the major deepwater basins around the globe. He has recently been working on conventional and unconventional plays in the Neuquen, Arkoma, Permian, North Sea, and West African basins as a seismic stratigrapher and regional geologist. Mr. McGee is experienced in the application of technology to problems for maximum benefit including: 1) seismic stratigraphy; 2) Landmark, Stratimagic, GeoProbe, VoxelGeo, TerraSpark, GeoTeric, Petrel, and Shell seismic interpretation, attribute analysis and image processing for exploration and development projects; 3) acoustic impedance inversion for reservoir-scale reservoir architecture and pay prediction; 4) structural reconstruction software for fault geometries and trap analysis; 5) gravity modeling; 6) EarthVision, Roxar, Petrel, and Shell reservoir modeling software to integrate data and build static reservoir models for deepwater fields/discoveries; 7) ArcGIS tools for mapping and data integration; and 8) decision analysis techniques to determine optimal minibasin scale exploration/development strategies and well planning decisions. He is experienced in working on integrated teams of geologists, geophysicists and engineers that were empowered to make decisions and were accountable for results. He served as team leader and/or lead geologist for four of these teams utilizing effective team/leadership skills working on a variety of scales and problems. He has received best paper presentation awards from the New Orleans Geological Society, runner-up for best paper at the Houston Geological Society, and selected to present at SEG as a part of a best of AAPG session. He has been an instructor for new hire training and co-taught a deepwater interpretation workshop for Nautilus. He was named mentor of the year from ConocoPhillips in 2009. Mr. McGee has an MS in Geology with Honors from the University of Oklahoma and a BS in Geology with Honors from the University of Montana.
