Caza Says Hello to New VP of Exploration
Caza O&G announced the appointment of Randy Nickerson to the position of Vice President, Exploration.
Reporting directly to Chief Executive Officer, Michael Ford, Randy will provide leadership and management of all Company technical activities. Randy joins Caza from Sanchez Oil & Gas where he began as Chief Geophysicist before becoming Sanchez's Vice President, Exploration. While at Sanchez he managed the exploration and production group, which acquired and processed over 2,000 square miles of new 3D data and drilled 30 wells in 2010 (both operated and non-operated), which resulted in 25 discoveries in both conventional and shale plays onshore Texas and Louisiana. He also developed Sanchez's G&G software and hardware system, including full seismic processing, instituted the technical standards for work flow on prospect development, and designed the gather conditioning processing flow to optimize AVO analysis.
After receiving his Bachelors in Geophysical Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines, Randy began work with Gulf Exploration & Production Company and has also worked for Amerada Hess Corporation, North Central Oil Corporation, Coastal Oil & Gas Corporation and Dominion Exploration & Production throughout his career. Randy has a track record of success across the US in processing, reprocessing and interpreting 3D seismic data and AVO analysis resulting in producing discoveries, and the last six years of his experience have been focused on Louisiana and Texas.
W. Michael Ford, Chief Executive Officer commented, "Randy Nickerson is an outstanding appointment for Caza at an important stage in our Company's growth. His direct and relevant experience in onshore Texas and Louisiana with processing, reprocessing and interpreting 3D seismic data and AVO analysis will enable him to make an immediate contribution to Caza's ongoing exploration and production activities, and his strong management skills will directly impact the Company's ambitions for growth."
