Mike Mullen joins Realm Energy as COO
Mr. Mullen has almost thirty years of experience in unconventional reservoir characterization including Tight Gas, CBM and Shale Oil and Gas. Most recently, as Halliburton’s Technical Professional Manager, he led a multidisciplinary group of engineers specializing in the integration of petrophysics, reservoir simulation and economic stimulation design with Halliburton’s Technical Team in Denver, CO.
He has led the successful design and execution of hundreds of successful stimulations across a wide range of North America’s Major Shale plays including the Barnett, Fayetteville, Woodford, Marcellus, Haynesville, Mancos and Bakken shales. He is also very familiar with proving concept on early stage shale plays, which is Realm Energy’s core strategy. Mr. Mullen played an integral role with Halliburton on work done for Realm Energy over the last year in its thorough technical analysis of European shale oil and gas resource plays.
With his well logging and petrophysics background, Mike was instrumental in developing Halliburton’s StimLOG and ShaleLOG formation evaluation model, used worldwide, to evaluate unconventional reservoirs for pay identification, stimulation and production modeling. He also initiated the company’s CBM log analysis model in the early 1980s. He has authored and contributed to numerous technical papers on diverse unconventional reservoir issues and co-authored a textbook on CBM. ■
