Jeffrey Ross graduated from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque in 1980 with a BS in Geology and received his M.Sc. in Sedimentology from Birkbeck College, University of London, UK, in 1991. He started with Texaco in Midland, Texas, in 1980 working exploration in the Midland and Palo Duro Basins of West Texas. In 1987 he transferred to Copenhagen, Denmark, becoming Senior Geophysicist for the Danish Underground Consortium. In that time, he authored or co-authored two regional sequence-stratigraphic studies covering the Lower and Upper Cretaceous in the Danish North Sea. This work combined near-field and development efforts and resulted in the discovery and delineation of the giant (500mmbo) Halfdan Oil Field stratigraphic trap within the Upper Cretaceous chalks.
In 1988 Jeff moved to London, UK, to work European New Ventures for Texaco, working at various times Denmark, UK, Norway, France, Spain, Italy (Sicily), Bulgaria and Turkey. Upon the merger of Texaco with Chevron, Jeff joined a small consulting company in London overseeing the integration of sedimentologists and sequence stratigraphers using high-resolution well based sequence stratigraphy with seismic stratigraphy, seismic facies analyses and well-to-seismic correlations.
In 2004 Jeff joined BG Group in Reading, UK. His work there focused primarily on a combination of deep HPHT exploration, and evaluating stratigraphic trapping potential of the Upper Cretaceous Chalk and Paleocene sands, resulting in multiple North Sea discoveries at several stratigraphic levels.
Jeff returned to the US in 2008, eventually joining Whiting Petroleum in Denver, Colorado, to work the Williston Basin Bakken play of Montana and North Dakota, specializing in integration of microseismic data acquired in one of the world’s largest microseismic buried arrays with 3D seismic and engineering data. He also authored a 3D seismic based regional study of the Ordovician Red River Formation of the Williston Basin, resulting in a number of Red River stratigraphic accumulation discoveries. Upon Whiting’s acquisition of a large leasehold in northern Louisiana, Jeff was assigned to interpret the detailed seismic stratigraphy of the Cotton Valley to Top Louann Salt sequences in the newly acquired Millerton 3D survey.
Jeff is currently Director and only employee of Colorado Seismic Interpreters LLC, with current projects in the UK, Eastern Mediterranean, West Africa and Colombia.
