Appraisal & Review Appraisal Experience
My duties as a Petroleum Engineer with the Corps of Engineers were to appraise producing and
non-producing mineral rights interests that the Government was to acquire. Also, my duties included
preparation of specifications for well plugging. All mineral rights appraisals were of working and
non-working interests in oil, gas, coal, sand and gravel and other mineral leases and mining claims, as
well as royalties, overriding royalties, and nonparticipating interests. The appraisals were also inclusive
of fee ownership in the mineral rights. Most of my appraisals and review appraisal work has been for
the Tulsa District Corps of Engineers. However, I have prepared appraisals and appraisal reviews for
other Corps of Engineers Districts. In addition I have prepared appraisals and appraisal reviews for
other Federal Agencies under Interagency Agreements with the Tulsa District Corps of Engineers.
These Agencies have included; the Bureau of Reclamation, National Park Service, US soil Conservation
Service, Department of Commerce, Department of Justice and the Department of Energy.
The appraisals and appraisal review reports that I have prepared have concerned mineral rights
properties located in the following states; Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri,
Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. I have also
appraised a Marine Terminal and five pipelines associated with the Strategic Petroleum Reserve
facilities in Louisiana and Texas for the DOE, New Orleans, Louisiana.
Subsequent to retirement, I have continued to prepare mineral appraisals and appraisal reviews for
various Federal Agencies. In addition to Government contract work, I have also prepared appraisals and
appraisal reviews for private interests. All of my appraisal and appraisal review work have involved
mineral interests in the United States. However, I did prepare an appraisal that concerned a mineral
interest in Hungary.
I have testified as an expert witness in Federal Court on numerous occasions for the US Army Corps of
Engineers, Bureau of Reclamation and Bureau of Indian Affairs.
