John A. Hamling has over 14 years of combined experience in unconventional oil and gas development, enhanced oil recovery (EOR), and carbon capture and storage (CCS). Mr. Hamling brings scientific and engineering innovation to catalyze and implement pioneering solutions that facilitate the prudent development and use of low-carbon and fossil energy. His primary focus is on advancing technologies and concepts that enable commercial application of geologic carbon storage, unconventional oil and gas production, and improved oil recovery in conventional and unconventional oil plays. Mr. Hamling is an adjunct lecturer in the Department of Petroleum Engineering at UND and has been a board member for the Williston Basin Society of Petroleum Engineers since 2012.
Mr. Hamling led efforts resulting in the development, proof-of concept, and validation of several improved monitoring techniques applicable to both dedicated and associated geologic CO2 storage and EOR applications. His experience extends to the design, implementation, and oversight of surface, near-surface, deep subsurface, and reservoir characterization and surveillance programs.
Mr. Hamling serves as a project advisor for site screening, characterization, design, qualification, and permitting efforts for multiple commercial CCS projects ranging in scale from 150,000 to 10 million tonnes of CO2 per year. He also serves as advisor for several unconventional tight oil EOR pilots. Other experience includes well-logging principals and applications, well drilling, well completions, wellbore integrity, risk assessment, logistics, well stimulation and enhanced recovery in tight oil plays, and health, safety, and environmental programs.
