Dr. Abdus Satter recently retired from his position as Sr. Research Consultant in the Texaco E&P Technology Department and established his own consulting firm, Satter & Associates in Houston, Texas. He has more than three decades of worldwide, diversified experience and expertise in reservoir technologies and enhanced recovery techniques. He has authored many technical papers and reservoir management books, including Integrated Petroleum Reservoir Management and Integrated Waterflood Asset Management.

James O. Baldwin has more than 30 years experience in reservoir development and exploitation of onshore and offshore fields. Currently an independent petroleum engineering consultant, his expertise lies in geological, geophysical, petroleum engineering, reservoir simulations, and economic evaluation areas. He has worked for several oil companies including Marathon, Mobil, and Conoco and serves on several SPE committees. Baldwin earned a B.E. in Chemical Engineering from Vanderbilt University, and a M.S. in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Southwest Louisiana.

Richard A. Jespersen recently retired from his position as Sr. Research Consultant for Texaco at their E&P Technology Department in Houston, Texas. He has more than 29 years experience in oil exploration and production, including seismic processing and interpretation, reservoir description and simulation, petroleum economics, risk assessment and international operations.More recently, Jespersen was part of a team that developed plans for optimizing reservoir management. Jespersen earned a B.S. in Physics from the University of Missouri and a Ph.D. in Physics from Iowa State University.
