About The Member

Mr. May retired from a 42-year career in petrophysics in 2016. Most of his petrophysical work was for several oil and gas companies worldwide. He has worked in exploring, appraising and developing oil and gas fields in the U.S., Argentina, Brazil, Indonesia, Thailand, China, the U.K. North Sea, Canada, Mexico, Venezuela and Russia. He helped discover and appraise several large oil and gas fields. Late in his career, he worked on unconventional shale oil and gas petrophysics and developed many unique techniques for evaluating these difficult reservoirs. In cooperation with Professor Mike Lovell (University of Leicester in the U.K.) he developed a one-week course in shale reservoir petrophysics. Andy has a B.S. in Geology from the University of Kansas.
