He was Shell’s lead reservoir engineer for Prelude and Auriga in the Browse basin, Australia and the Champion and Champion West fields in Brunei. His knowledge covers the full range of the gas/oil field life cycle from exploration, field development, well delivery and field management.
He has competence in integrated 3D simulation and analytical well/reservoir/field performance techniques.
He is committed to work in an integrated manner with clients and apply his deep technical knowledge to resolve the issue at hand.
Hongfeng has a Masters degree in Sedimentology from University of Petroleum China (Beijing) and a MBA from the joint program of Lingnan, Sun Yat-Sen University and MIT Sloan management school.
Frank Glass (Associate) is a Geoscientist with 28 years of experience. During his career with Shell International, he has been involved in exploration and development teams in the Browse and Carnarvon basins within Australia and has global experience from the UK, Netherlands, US and Malaysia. His core competencies are seismic interpretation, opportunity maturation and the quantification of risk, resource and value.
He has had extensive experience with the integration of geophysical data into subsurface models for exploration and development, non-operated ventures and business development.
Frank has a Masters degree in Structural Geology from the University of Amsterdam.
Thiam-Guan (TG) Tan (Associate) is a Facilities Engineer with 30 years experience in the Upstream Oil and Gas industry, including 26 years with Shell.
He was Shell’s Development Manager responsible for their interests in the Greater Gorgon and Wheatstone assets, including the Foundation project and future field developments. TG’s experience includes management of subsurface and surface field development, project execution, operating venture governance and cost engineering on some of the largest and most complex gas projects in the world, e.g. Gorgon and North West Shelf.
