Mr. Jeffery A. S, holds a degree in Chemical and Petro Chemical Engineering with a Bachelor Degree, Honors , and had over 30 year career at the oil industry Senior Drilling Engineer with extensive list of successful projects, both domestic and international, including deep water and hostile environments. Now, also a specialist in remote locations also.

Over a decade of experience directing multi-disciplined project teams. Skilled in planning and coordinating multiple projects simultaneously. Personable communicator, both orally and in writing. A proven mentor, able to innovate solutions utilizing new technologies, train others to employ methods, and devise a successful strategy for deploying results.

Specialties : Advanced drilling technologies, applications of innovative solutions, pore pressure prediction, deep-water drilling, HP/HT wells, extended reach/horizontal wells, intelligent completions, under-balanced drilling, managed pressure drilling, well control instructor,
Specialties: Designing and drilling wells, straight or deviated. Of course I started on land but I am equally versed in designing wells in deep water and the selection of floating drilling equipment as well as land rigs and jackups.

Develop a new requirement for maintaining the ABS Class of Drilling System using an alternate and innovative approach involving risk-based inspections, continuous monitoring. Participated in authoring 3 technical papers on the deployment of new technology in the offshore energy business.

Principal Engineer

After concluding my contract for Halliburton's global Project Management group, I am currently available for deployment immediately to whatever place I am most urgently needed. I am looking forward with eager anticipation to my next exciting adventure.


Principal Technical Adviser- Drilling


After concluding the work in Israel, I came to Houston as a staff support engineer in Halliburton's global Project Management team. Providing a complete range of technical assistance to engineers who have exhausted their local resources is what I do now. Mentoring less-experienced individuals has become a key part of how to pass-along experience and judgement from over 30 years of energy engineering.


Senior Drilling Engineer

Tel Aviv, Israel

Daily interaction with client staff while working to plan, permit and drill their first-ever offshore wells in Israel. Since there are few wells here, the usual vendor selections are extremely limited. Choices go from getting the best XXX to obtaining the only XXXX after somebody else finishes using it. Israel is a dynamic, exciting place to live and to work. Its citizens like Americans. Language is not a barrier. The streets are safe after dark. You can drink the tap water. After working, there are places to go and sights to be seen. I enjoyed working here. I expect to return to Houston by early March, looking for my next adventure.
