Global Basin Screening

Screening experience includes leadership of a substantial global new geographies project. Led a global review of over 250 global basins for above and below ground potential.

Slide 1

Exploration Projects

Broad exploration and new venture experience covers a wide range of regions. It is focused on the Europe-Africa-Middle East and Asia region but includes substantial screening and project work across the Americas and Asia-Pacific regions.

Slide 1

Field Experience

Continued professional development subscribes to the broad mantra that the best geologists have seen the most rocks. Every opportunity has been taken to observe and integrate field relations and appreciate sample to well log to seismic and basin scale.

Slide 1

Exploration Management

Management experience ranges from operational to regional exploration and new ventures to global and virtual strategic projects.

Slide 1

Operational Projects

Early career experience focused on wellsite duties progressing to operational management of multiple rig strings. Later experience progressed to exploration management of numerous operated and non-operated drilling projects across the Europe-Africa-Middle East Asia region.

Testimonials

GM New Ventures
CNOOC

"Tim provides excellent regional and block specific evaluations, very timely and concise. He draws on his wealth of experience of basins worldwide and his assessments are invaluable in driving forward exploration and new venture projects. An asset to any project"​

Senior VP
BP

"Flexible explorationist equally comfortable leading frontier new ventures such as Namibia as managing multi-faceted operational programmes in mature regions such as North West Europe."

Senior VP
BP / Hess

“Tim is a seasoned integrator and explorer with strong focus on core regional geology. His UKCS mature basin experience included several successful drill-out campaigns which extended the production life of the basin as individual contributor and exploration manager. In the International New Ventures arena Tim was passionate in advancing multiple opportunities where a variety of political and environmental issues opened new geographies.

Senior VP
BP / Hess

He concentrates on the fundamentals of geoscience such as presence and effectiveness of source rocks and high quality reservoir systems to underpin any regional evaluation. Tim’s duty of care to professional geologists is also a key facet to his character and he has played an important role in the development and skills growth for the next generation of explorers that have worked for him.”
