Several challenging issues confront the oil and gas industry, including California’s declining production, difficulties marketing natural gas, aging infrastructure, the potential impact of rising energy prices, and operating in the state’s political and regulatory climate. Additionally, DOGGR is focusing on specific objectives, in particular the development of a comprehensive electronic management system and continued emphasis on the orphan/idle well program.

Hal has been with the Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources since 1975 and was appointed to the position of State Oil and Gas Supervisor in May 2003. Prior to that, he was the Bakersfield District Manager since 1990, and was the Santa Maria District Manager from 1988 to 1990. Hal has been active with SPE including serving as Vice-Chair of the Santa Maria Section, the San Joaquin Valley Section Scholarship Committee, and Co-Chairing the 1999 International Thermal Symposium. He has a degree in Civil Engineering from USC and is a registered civil engineer. He currently resides in Sacramento with his wife, Denise, and two cats, Simon and Katie.
