Fall Education Conference Keynote Speaker: Coy Squyres

We are delighted to announce that Coy H. Squyres will be our Fall Education Conference Keynote Speaker on Monday, September 21, to be held in Houston, Texas.
Coy Squyres has been a pioneer in the exploration and development of petroleum resources in Africa, and has led successful exploration efforts resulting in the discovery of giant oil fields in Egypt, Libya, Equatorial Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire.
Here's an excerpt from Coy's bio: Armed with a Petroleum Geology degree from the University of Oklahoma, in 1954 Squyres left for Tripoli to play an important role in the discovery of Libya's enormous oil reserves. It was during these years that Squyres began to observe and catalogue some of the first modern records of African Geology. Although his study will never be complete, in 2007 Squyres submitted for print the most comprehensive mapping of African geology to date. Discovery of the giant oil fields in Egypt, Libya, Equatorial Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire serve as evidence of the practical side of his knowledge and work.
While only thirty-three years old, Squyres was chosen to head Libyan exploration for Oasis Oil, a joint venture with Amerada Hess, Conoco, and Marathon Oil. Squyres today is still recognized for leading the discovery of over 28 billion barrels of oil which produced an unparalleled, one million barrels of oil per day. In Libya, Squyres served as the liaison with the Libyan government.
Recognizing Squyres penchant for finding oil while managing people, still in his 40's, Squyres was appointed President of Conoco/Middle East and President of Conoco/Egypt and subsequently relocated to Cairo. During that period, Squyres and his team located a one trillion cubic foot natural gas, 1.2 billion barrel oil reserve.
