Tekoil Taps Goulding to Oversee Canada Business Development

Tekoil & Gas Corp. has appointed Alexander (Sandy) Goulding to the position of Manager of Business Development for its Canadian operations, effective June 1, 2007.

Goulding graduated from Memorial University in Newfoundland with a bachelor's degree in business and political science in 1988 and has worked with both Federal and Provincial Governments. Upon graduating from university he worked with both Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Canadian Revenue Agency.

His move to the Provincial Government was political in nature, working as an Executive Assistant to a senior Cabinet Minister for 10 years in such Departments as Health, Education, and Justice. While working with the Department of Justice he led the department's team on determining the specifications and the eventual selection of the Terra Nova Offshore Oil Legal Retainer Contract.

Goulding worked with a variety of marketing firms after his tenure with the Provincial Government and eventually returned to school to complete a graduate program in Information Technology. Combining his new IT skills and political knowledge Goulding provided polling and political advice based on those polls to a cross-section of political parties and candidates.

In 2005 Goulding returned to his hometown of Corner Brook, where he organized the 1st International Symposium on Oil & Gas Resources in Western Newfoundland for the Greater Corner Brook Board of Trade. Along with an earlier introduction, it was this event that drew Tekoil's attention to Western Newfoundland.

After organizing the Symposium Goulding took on the position of Executive Director with the Board of Trade for a little over a year and then formed a consulting company that did work for Tekoil in the latter months of 2006 and early 2007. Goulding recently assisted in managing and organizing the 2nd International Oil & Gas Symposium in Western Newfoundland for the Board of Trade.

Houston-based Tekoil & Gas Corp. is a technology-driven company focused on the development, acquisition, stimulation, rehabilitation and asset improvement of small- to medium-sized oil and gas fields.
