Oil and gas company Reconnaissance Energy Africa Ltd, has announced the appointment of Scot Evans as chief operating officer.
ReconAfrica is a junior oil and gas company engaged in the development of the newly discovered Kavango Sedimentary Basin, in northeast Namibia, where the company holds a 90% working interest (from surface to basement) in a petroleum licence, comprising approximately 6.3 million contiguous acres.
Evans is an energy industry leader with a combined 35 years of experience with Exxon and Halliburton.
Most recently, Evans was vice president of Halliburton’s Integrated Asset Management and Technical Consulting organisations, where he grew production from 20K to over 100K barrels of oil equivalent per day, creating the equivalent of a mid-cap upstream oil company.
“I have been following ReconAfrica’s technical advances for several years, and am truly excited to be part of such a strong technical and financial team,” Evans said. “As a geologist, the opportunity to be part of the opening of a new sedimentary basin of this scale rarely presents itself, and I intend to bring the technical and operational experience in both conventional and unconventional plays that I have gained during my career to the company and its investors.”
Evans’ experience in the US spans the Delaware, Midland, Eagle Ford and Monterey plays, and internationally in Algeria, Kuwait, India, Angola, Ecuador and Mexico. He is an expert in developing new field resources.
