Tina Manning joined DeGolyer and MacNaughton in 2018. Prior to joining D&M, Manning worked in various roles at Denbury Resources as a development design geologist primarily focused on reservoir characterization and field development plans, and as a reservoir management geologist focused on field optimization and operations.

Manning received her bachelor’s degree from Louisiana State University and her master’s degree in geology from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2016. Manning is currently serving as president for the Dallas Geological Society and has been an officer of the organization since 2015. In addition, she is the social chair for the 2019 AAPG Southwest Section Convention.

Major Projects

Manning has experience in integrating multidisciplinary data, including geologic, geophysical, petrophysical, engineering, and production data, into applied visual analytics and full-field reservoir models. She has constructed and provided quantitative and conceptual geologic data for 3–D geocellular models. Her work in core analysis, petrophysical evaluation, and correlation of reservoir flow units resulted in the identification of high-permeability zones and barriers, thus optimizing injection patterns and increasing flood efficiency. She has collaborated closely with reservoir engineers on reservoir simulations to characterize flow streams and reserves uncertainty using probabilistic methods.

She has worked all life cycles of a field from primary, secondary, to tertiary operations. She is proficient in computer-based software such as Petrel, Petra, Powerlog, Kingdom, and Spotfire, where she integrates traditional geologic practices and data analysis into a complete reservoir story.
