Christy A. Glatz joined DeGolyer and MacNaughton in 2011 as a geologist specialist in reservoir characterization, sedimentology and stratigraphy, 3–D geocellular modeling, and appraisal to mature field development. Prior to joining D&M, she worked 7 years as a geologist for Schlumberger Oilfield Services in Algeria, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Glatz earned a bachelor’s degree in geology from the University of Maine in 2003. She earned a master’s degree in petroleum geoscience in 2015 from the University of London. She is a licensed professional geoscientist in the States of Texas and Louisiana. She is a certified petroleum geologist and a member of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the Society of Sedimentary Geology (SEPM). She was elected a Vice President of D&M in 2015.

Major Projects

Glatz has more than 19 years of experience in reservoir characterization and field development planning of appraisal to mature fields located offshore and onshore. She is a recognized expert in 3–D geocellular modeling and reservoir characterization. Additional skills include interpreting and integrating facies, facies association, and depositional systems from core, well-log, and seismic data into geocellular models.

Glatz has built numerous complex structure and property models that integrated geologic concepts with seismic, core, well-log, and production data for fields worldwide. These geocellular models are used as a basis for reservoir optimization strategies, field development planning, reservoir simulation, and volumetric evaluations.

Before joining D&M, Glatz worked for Schlumberger Oilfield Services, accumulating extensive experience in reservoir characterization and geocellular modeling. She worked internationally in multi-disciplinary teams on exploration, appraisal, and field development projects.

Glatz is an internationally recognized, Schlumberger-certified Petrel instructor who has taught numerous Petrel software courses such as Uncertainty Analysis, Seismic Visualization and Interpretation, Structural Modeling, and Property Modeling to employees of major operators worldwide.
