Grant M. Skerlec

Grant M. Skerlec is head of SEALS International, specializing in the application of fault seal analysis to prospect assessment and field development. He received a BA degree from Franklin & Marshall College in 1968 and a Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1979. He joined Exxon Production Research Company where he began working on fault seal analysis in 1978. In 1982 he joined Esso Norway, and later Esso Exploration & Production UK, as an exploration geologist applying quantitative seal analysis to prospect and play assessments in the North Sea, Norwegian Sea, and Barents Sea. In 1987 Skerlec formed SEALS International, a company that provides services, software, and training for routine fault seal analysis as well as global databases of fault seal behavior in hydrocarbon basins. Current work involves the compilation of the joint-industry Fault Seal Behavior in the Gulf Coast Atlas and the recent completion of a similar atlas for North Sea-Norwegian Sea oil and gas fields.
