Focusing upon international financial market sectors since 1996, with one of the largest commodities firms in the West, Stephen Moore became the principal founder of Randall Worldwide Investments in 2001 in order to navigate his global commodities concentration to what he perceived as the nexus of commodities investments and the oil and gas exploration and production. Moore set out to rewrite the practicum for the synthesis of team building and operations management interactive mapping structures techniques, predictive site and ongoing operational analytics, strategic planning, acquisitions, program development, and costs to production analyses.
During the ensuing eight years, Moore’s practicum approach to oil and gas programs production has attracted the attention of oil and gas exploration and development geologists throughout western North America including the Rocky Mountain Basins of Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana, and Canada, and the Permian and related basins in Central and West Texas, as well as the Marcellus Shale Keystone State formation.
Stephen began organizing PetroChase, Inc., in 2005, in order to administrate the Operator function as the managing member of its various program initiatives. He has recently been selected to be a judge at the oil and gas awards in the Fall of 2013 with other key gas and oil executives such as the CEO of Breitling Oil and Gas.
