Gaston L. Kearby
Mr. Kearby began his career in the oil and gas industry in 1984, buying and selling drilling pipe to oil well operators in South Texas.
Over time his
business expanded to include capping, salvaging, and reselling drilling pipe reclaimed from unproductive wells, as well as purchasing and operating existing wells.
In 2009, Mr. Kearby founded ZaZa with Todd A. Brooks and John Hearn Jr. to pursue opportunities in the emerging Eagle Ford Shale.
While Mr. Kearby's
experience has been primarily focused in oil and gas operations in South Texas, his
experience includes oversight of production operations spanning a large part of North America.
depth of experience in evaluating, acquiring, enhancing, and operating existing production wells will be of value to the board of the new ZaZa Energy Corporation
