Bio/Research

Dr. Grant D. Wach was appointed Professor of Petroleum Geoscience at Dalhousie University in 2002. Prior to his Dalhousie appointment he was Geoscience Research Associate at Texaco Upstream Technology (now ChevronTexaco). At Texaco he was a specialist in deepwater depositional systems, reservoir characterization, sequence stratigraphy and clastic sedimentology for business units, operating affiliates and partners worldwide. He has considerable exploration and commercialization experience in West Africa, the Far East, Americas and Western Europe.

He began his petroleum industry career in 1979 with Syncrude Canada in the oilsands of northeastern Alberta. This provided a unique opportunity to spend several years working, literally, inside a complex oil reservoir. His undergraduate degree is from the University of Western Ontario, M. Sc. from the University of South Carolina and D.Phil. from the Oxford University. In the past he has also worked for the Ontario Geological Survey and Exxon Production Research Company. He has over forty published articles and abstracts and numerous technical reports in several areas of sedimentology and stratigraphy. He has lectured and led field seminars at several universities and for industry worldwide.
