Brian Davidson  VP of Engineering
As VP of Engineering, Brian is responsible for performing engineered fracture treatment designs and post treatment evaluations. These tasks are focused to support the field operations for our customers. The objective is to optimize the fracture treatments, focused on completion efficiency and maximizing production.
Brian is a seasoned engineer with over 40 years field experience in the design and completion of hydraulic fracturing treatments in conventional and unconventional reservoirs around the world. These fracture treatments have been in countries such as Russia, China, Malaysia (offshore), Jordon, Egypt (land & offshore), Canada, Oman, Switzerland, Trinidad, Mexico, Venezuela, and Colombia. The types of treatments have ranged from high permeability formations (100s mD), to the current low permeability shale projects in North America as well as Russia, and Poland. Initially designed treatments for the vertical wells in the Barnet Shale in the 1980s and 1990s then evolving to the current horizontal completions. Many of these projects have been documented in over 20 SPE papers and technical articles. Prior to co-founding ROI Energy Partners, Brian worked for StrataGen, Pinnacle Technologies, Holditch & Associates, and Halliburton Energy Services.
