The most gratifying moment in my years in the oil business came the day in July 2008 when my son Jeff joined the company as field engineering/operations manager. Jeff began helping with field operations while in grade school. Being naturally talented in mechanical and engineering concepts, Jeff understood even at a young age why and how the oilfield equipment worked. By the time Jeff was in high school, his ability to identify and correct problems with the mechanical equipment was superior to our experienced field personnel. The addition of Jeff to our technical staff adds value to the producing assets of the investors, and the company through his lease/well engineering and design capabilities, and his programs to monitor each wells maintenance, and efficiency for maximize oil production from every well, everyday.
