Eugene Ames, Jr.
Managing Partner, Chairman
Mr. Ames is a Managing Partner, serves as Chairman of the Investment Committee, and is a member of the Management Committee. He participates in investment origination, structuring, execution, portfolio divestments, and overall firm strategy. Mr. Ames joined the Manager in 2013.
Mr. Ames has approximately sixty years of experience as an independent oil and gas producer and exploration geologist. He has served as Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Venus Oil Company, his 100% owned corporation which exists to hold title to certain of his developed and undeveloped mineral and leasehold interests through which he owns and manages a portion of his personal portfolio of royalties, minerals and oil and gas leasehold interests. Production operations and non-operated interests managed by Venus Oil Company have produced millions of barrels of oil equivalent.
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.
Mr. Ames is a recipient of two of the most prestigious honors bestowed by the United States oil and gas industry, U.S. Tubular Steel Product's Chief Roughneck Award and the Texas Oil & Gas Association's Distinguished Service Award. He has served in the past as Chairman of the Independent Petroleum Association of America ("IPAA"), the Texas Oil & Gas Association, and the Southwest Research Institute, of which he remains as a member of the Board of Directors. Under his leadership, IPAA founded the North American Prospect Exposition (NAPE). Mr. Ames was appointed and served two terms on the National Petroleum Council, advisory board to the United States Secretary of Energy. From 1994 to 1996 he served as Chairman of the Oil and Gas Policy Committee of the National GOP. Under his Chairmanship, the Oil and Gas Policy Committee developed energy policies that comprised the basis of the energy plank in the Republican Party Platform in the 1996 election cycle.
Mr. Ames earned a B.S. in Geology from the University of Texas at Austin, and has served as a Member of the Advisory Council to the University of Texas Geology Foundation. He is a graduate of the Owner President Management program at the Harvard Graduate School of Business. His affiliations include the American Association of Petroleum Geologists; Society of Independent Professional Earth Scientists; South Texas Geological Society; and the All-American Wildcatters Association.
