Geoffrey Thyne has over 30 years of experience in oil and gas and is one of the world’s experts in increasing production by manipulating water chemistry. He began his career in the earth sciences in 1979 as a Research Geochemist at the Arco Oil and Gas research facility.
Geoffrey received his PhD in Geology from the University of Wyoming in 1991 and taught at California State University-Bakersfield until 1996. He then joined the Colorado School of Mines. He returned to the University of Wyoming in 2006, where his work with the Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) focused on carbon sequestration and enhanced oil recovery. During his time at EORI he became immersed in the possibilities of changing water chemistry to improve oil recovery, intensively studying the process in the laboratory and field. Geoff left EORI in 2012 and returned to the private sector at ESal, LLC.
