Mr. Kaiser is a geologist with over 35 years of experience in Western Canada and Internationally. He has drilled hundreds of wells (vertical and horizontal) and has been involved in many oil and gas discoveries in both clastic and carbonate reservoirs. He has worked for companies of varying sizes, from “start-ups” to a large subsidiary of an intermediate - US Independent (Pioneer Natural Resources Canada), and been involved in all aspects of the exploration task from identifying geophysical locations to drilling design and completion strategies. Mr. Kaiser spent almost 15 years exclusively focused on A&D work through various roles as VP Business Development with Pioneer Natural Resources Canada and Quatro Resources. This work led to the implementation of BD teams at Pioneer utilizing methodology/protocols from resource assessments of under-developed oil and gas fields from Canada, to several areas around the world where Pioneer operated. After the sale of Pioneer Natural Resources Canada to Taqa Resources, Mr. Kaiser served as Vice President Exploration & Business Development at Quatro Resources which eventually was merged with Mosaic Energy (both owned by Natural Gas Partners of Dallas), where he was responsible for capital spending within the company (roughly $290M over 2 ½ yrs) including drilling and completion of multiple horizontal wells, construction of a new 50 mmcf/d sour facility (expandable), water injection skid and lastly completion of a complex gas gathering system connecting multiple pad-sites to Mosaic’s new gas plant. Most recently Mr. Kaiser co-founded Apogee Petroleum Inc. (API) in late 2017 with a significant capital commitment from Pearl Energy Investments of Dallas, Texas, growing the company to over 2000 boepd; and culminating in the sale of Apogee in December 2021.
