Mr. Ames has approximately sixty years of experience as an independent oil and gas producer and exploration geologist.

Mr. Ames has been credited with the design and implementation of exploration and field exploitation programs which have discovered and developed substantial oil and gas reserves, estimated to be in excess of one trillion cubic feet equivalent; including the Vidor-Ames Field in Orange County, Texas, a 170 billion cubic feet equivalent field discovered by Amerada-Hess on a prospect originated by Venus Oil Company. Another project developed by his exploration team was the Vernon Field in Jackson Parish, Louisiana, a one trillion cubic feet equivalent field, which sold to Anadarko Petroleum. This transaction resulted in Anadarko drilling hundreds of gas wells, and the Vernon Field becoming recognized as one of the giant gas fields to be developed in America in the first decade of the twenty-first Century.
