Mr. Patrick L. McGuire

SENIOR CONSULTANT - ENGINEERING

Mr. McGuire is a Reservoir Engineer with 40 years of energy industry experience. He is a world-class expert in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) and has worked on gas injection and low salinity EOR opportunities across the world. He worked for many years designing and implementing advanced oil recovery processes for the North Slope of Alaska, which is home to North America.s largest oil fields and some of the world's largest EOR projects. Mr. McGuire previously worked for Sandia National Laboratories and Los Alamos National Laboratories doing various forms of energy research. He authored two technical papers on drilling technology while at Sandia, and four technical papers on the development of methane hydrates as an energy resource while at Los Alamos. He authored numerous technical papers on Enhanced Oil Recovery while working for ARCO and BP. Mr. McGuire holds seven U. S. patents.

While serving as a Distinguished Lecturer for the Society of Petroleum Engineers during 1998 and 1999, Mr. McGuire addressed over 30 SPE sections in Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia, Asia, and the Middle East. His EOR papers have been peer-reviewed and published in various SPE journals.
