Dominion Exploration and Production

My duties during my summer employment were to review the decline curve history of over 3,000 natural gas wells located in the Appalachian Basin using ARIES software. I helped process and validate Authority For Expenditure (AFE) reports for well prospects. Also, I assisted in reservoir calculations and formal presentation preparation for an acquisition. In addition, I gained limited field experience by visiting company drilling rigs. Finally, I helped generate a comprehensive, annual five-year budget report as my summer that included simulated production, capital expenditures, revenue, cash flow, and drilling program recommendations.
