Alan Mourgues


Twenty years of international Oil & Gas industry experience across the five continents. Held employee positions in small and large organizations, as well as consulting as independent and as part of a major global advisory Group.

Exposure to a wide range of projects of varying degrees of technical complexity and commercial maturity, onshore and offshore, across the project life span from early exploration through to appraisal and development stages.

Primary focus on reserves and resources evaluations, production forecasting, field development planning, recovery and production optimization, uncertainty analysis and risk assessments.

Key technologies include analytical and numerical reservoir modelling, uncertainty analysis and experimental design, and efficient (fit-for-purpose) field surveillance with pressure/rate transient Analysis (PTA/RTA) and Integrated Production Modelling (IPM).

Product offering includes reserves reporting, desktop studies, due diligence, peer reviews, independent expert reviews, and competent person’s reports.

Technical excellence, business acumen and exceptional communication skills are key elements of my value proposition.

Guest Lecturer at University of Queensland for the Masters in Petroleum Engineering Program.

  • Client: Central Petroleum Limited – Amadeus Basin, Australia. Dynamic modelling of the Mereenie oil/gas field. Deliverables included history matched reference base case model, no-further-development (NFD) and ‘new wells’ forecasts, and low and high side history matches and forecasts. This model would form the basis of future field development planning and Reserves booking workflows.

  • Client: [Confidential] – Taranaki Basin, New Zealand (Jun 2019). Pressure Transient Analyses of various gas/condensate wells, with the objective of updating reservoir permeability maps and well performance for input update into field simulation model.

  • Client: [Confidential] – Gipsland Basin, Australia. Due Diligence: technical evaluation of a certain gas field as part of an opportunity assessment to acquire the assets and produce it in a blowdown phase, followed up by a long-term gas storage phase.

  • Client: [Confidential] – Taranaki Basin, New Zealand. Single well sector modelling of various multi-stage fractured horizontal oil wells, aimed at improved understanding of near-wellbore phenomena and higher reliability of early production performance.

  • Client: New Zealand Oil & Gas (NZOG) – Bonaparte Basin, Timor Sea Offshore Western Australia. Buffalo Oil Field farm-in opportunity assessment. Technical review of Buffalo Oil Field dynamic model, whose objective was to evaluate the robustness of the history match produced by the operator, and run sensitivities on forecasting under various assumptions for the field re-development, with specific emphasis in protecting for the downside on the structural attic oil volume.

  • Client: Comet Ridge Limited – Bowen Basin, Australia. Reservoir Engineering support in various Company’s CSG assets, including Field Development Planning and Type Curve Development for the Mahalo Project Area, Denison Trough, Bowen Basin’s Walloons assets and Interests in the Galilee Basin.

  • Client: Galilee Energy Limited – Galilee Basin, Australia. Review and QC of Glenaras Field Reservoir Model, base case history match and prediction scenarios to determine near-term pilot drilling requirements and potential assessment of full field development.
