*** The GSH is proud to announce the formation of a new Special Interest Group called the Unconventional SIG. This new SIG aims to provide a forum for discussion of any technology or workflow or case study having to do with unconventional oil and gas exploration, exploitation, and production, with an emphasis on geophysics and how it can be integrated with other disciplines such as geology and engineering.

The Unconventional SIG is being sponsored by TGS and will meet in their office building on Clay Rd, just off of the Beltway north of I-10. It will meet every other month, alternating with the Microseismic SIG.

Speaker: Dave Hager,  President and CEO, Devon Energy 

Producing oil and natural gas from unconventional resources requires operators to continually improve their geophysical understanding of reservoirs using the latest technology. CEO Dave Hager will explain how Devon Energy develops and deploys technology to transform its operations and improve performance.

Speaker Biography: Dave Hager,  President and CEO, Devon Energy
Dave Hager is president and chief executive officer of Devon Energy Corporation, one of the nation’s largest independent oil and natural gas producers. He also serves on Devon’s board of directors. Hager previously served on the board from 2007 until 2009, when he joined the company as executive vice president of exploration and production. He later served as chief operating officer before being elected by the board to his current position effective Aug. 1, 2015.

Hager started in the gas and oil business as a geophysicist with Mobil Corp. and then joined Sun E&P in 1981. When Sun spun off its refinery operations in 1988, Hager remained with the E&P company, which was renamed Oryx Energy. He later worked in its new-ventures group, managing new projects around the world. Hager then managed deepwater projects, including the team that pioneered the world’s first production spar, a floating production facility that paved the way for deepwater developments. 

Oryx merged with Kerr-McGee in 1999. While at Kerr-McGee, Hager managed the company’s worldwide deepwater exploration and production operations and took over all exploration and production operations in 2003. He later served as the company’s chief operating officer until Kerr-McGee was acquired by Anadarko Corp. in 2006.

Hager serves on the board of directors and the executive committee of the American Petroleum Institute, as well as the board of directors of the American Exploration & Production Council. He also serves on the boards of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce, the Oklahoma City National Memorial, the United Way of Central Oklahoma and the YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City. 

He has a bachelor’s degree in geophysics from Purdue University and a master’s degree in business administration from Southern Methodist University.
