Harvey H. Howell, President of H.H. Howell, Inc.

Harvey, born in 1956, is a third-generation wildcatter, native San Antonian.  He grew up following his grandfather and father across South Texas oil fields learning the drilling and operating business by 18, and after college, served as vice president of the family firm, Howell Drilling, Inc.  Responsibilities from 1978-1984 included management of drilling operations and an exploration/development program for lower Wilcox sandstone and Edwards limestone reservoirs at Hallettsville, in Lavaca County, Texas.

 

Formal education included four-years of Geology with one year of Petroleum Land Management at the University of Texas at Austin.  Professional associations have included the South Texas, Houston, and West Texas Geological Societies, and SEPM (Society for Sedimentary Geology). 

 

In 1984, Harvey became an independent oil & gas explorer and operator. He has discovered numerous fields along the Texas Gulf Coast and Eastern Shelf of the Permian Basin, including Dare I (Hope) field in Concho County. Primarily a stratigrapher, he has published on the Eocene Wilcox formation of South Texas and the Pennsylvanian Cisco formation of West Texas. His contributions include:


Productive Lower Wilcox Distributary Channel Sands of the Hallettsville Embayment, Lavaca County, Texas, 1986, Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies.
Dubina, South Field, 1987, Typical Oil and Gas Fields of Southeast Texas, Vol. II, Houston Geological Society.
South Texas Geological Society Lower Wilcox Core Workshop, Hallettsville Field, Lavaca County, Texas, 1989, American Association of Petroleum Geologists.
Using Soil Gas Composition to Distinguish Hydrocarbon Type in Areas of Multiple Petroleum-Producing Horizons, 1997, American Association of Petroleum Geologists.
Dare I (Hope) Field, Concho County, Texas-A United Effort Opens A New Pennsylvanian Fluvial/Deltaic Sand Trend, 1999, AAPG Southwest Section.
Dare I (Hope) Field, Concho County, Texas-An Incident of Pooled Disciplines, 1999, American Association of Petroleum Geologists.
Dare I (Hope) Field and The Rest of the Story-Dare I (Cook) Field, Concho County, Texas, 2004, American Association of Petroleum Geologists.

 

In addition to Harvey’s own exploration activity, he has participated in numerous cutting edge technology projects through his Daubert-Howell Energy partnership with stepfather, C. Robert Daubert, himself a second-generation geologist.  Recent success has utilized 3-D seismic for deep production in Louisiana, AVO “bright spot” analysis for shallow gas in East Texas, and horizontal drilling for San Andres oil along the Texas/New Mexico border.

Lance Harwerth, Geologist and Data Manager

Lance received his Bachelor of Science degree in Geological Sciences from the University of Texas at Austin in 1984, and continues to study Computer Sciences at the University of Texas, San Antonio.

Between 1985 and 1991, Lance worked for RPI International, Inc., an independent Geologic Research Organization, based in Boulder, Colorado.   As a project geologist, he worked on regional stratigraphic studies in the Rocky Mountains and surrounding basins.  His experience includes fieldwork, core description, and sub-surface mapping of the Lower Cretaceous sediments in the Powder River, and Green River Basins in Wyoming.  These studies include:

 
The Powder River Basin DISC Project.

Dakota Sand of the Moxa Arch and Green River Basin.

 

While at RPI, Lance also served as Chief Geo-technician on 5 regional studies in the on-shore Gulf Coast, and Illinois Basin.  He supervised the technical staff in the collection of all stratigraphic, structural, and well data, and it’s input into computer databases.   He managed the team as computer aided mapping and graphics software packages were used to manipulate and interpret the data.  These studies include:

The 15 County regional study of the Yegua Sand (Phases I & II), Texas
The South Texas Vicksburg Study
The 12 County regional study of The Wilcox Sand, Texas
The Illinois Basin Study, Illinois and Michigan

 

From 1993 through June of 2004, Lance worked with Harvey H. Howell at Daubert-Howell Energy as a Geologist / Computer Specialist.  His contributions with Howell include:

 
Using Soil Gas Composition to Distinguish Hydrocarbon Type in Areas of Multiple Petroleum-Producing Horizons, 1997, American Association of Petroleum Geologists.
Dare I (Hope) Field, Concho County, Texas-A United Effort Opens A New Pennsylvanian Fluvial/Deltaic Sand Trend, 1999, AAPG Southwest Section.
Dare I (Hope) Field, Concho County, Texas-An Incident of Pooled Disciplines, 1999, American Association of Petroleum Geologists.
Dare I (Hope) Field and The Rest of the Story-Dare I (Cook) Field, Concho County, Texas, 2004, American Association of Petroleum Geologists.

 

From 2004 – Present, Lance has worked for H.H. Howell, Inc. as a Geologist and has been involved in all of the company’s exploration activities in South and West-Central Texas.

 

Lance was born in Laredo, Texas in 1961 and is a member of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (A.A.P.G.).
