He is a Fellow of the Geological Society of London, a member of the Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists.

For projects ranging from basin analysis to acreage evaluations and prospect generation, detailed analysis of reservoirs and reservoir performance in producing fields contact Alan here: alan.driscole@beaglegeoscience.com

Business Development, Chris Brown

has over three decades of experience in Oil and Gas Exploration, having worked on all types of exploration globally. A proven oil finder, Chris has been involved with oil and gas discoveries in the UK, Italy, Poland, Egypt, Libya and Peru and significantly the Val D’Agri fields of southern Italy, where over one billion barrels of oil were discovered.

Principal Geophysicist, Mark Sawyers

has been a working geophysicist since 1981; with six oil companies as an employee and many more as an independent consultant. He has interpreted over one hundred 3D surveys and has been involved in regional work, prospect generation, seismic survey and well planning, and development and production projects in five continents. He now teaches an industry course on 3D seismic interpretation. In his career he has had both technical and management roles, he has trained or mentored around 20 junior geoscientists, and whilst at Enterprise Oil and responsible for North Sea new ventures he chaired the UK Offshore Operator Association Exploration Committee.

He lives in Kent with his wife and three children. He is a keen (but slow) marathon runner and an enthusiastic guitarist.
