Founding Chairman

Marvin received his Bachelor of Science degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Oklahoma, and has accumulated over forty years experience in engineering, exploration, drilling and operational activities. Marvin worked for Amoco Production Company as a production engineer. After leaving Amoco, he joined Robinowitz Oil, a family business, where he managed the exploration and production departments. In 1981 Marvin formed Grand Resources (an operating oil and gas company) and grew the company through drilling into the late 1980s. Marvin developed novel drilling approaches that saved time and money using underbalanced drilling (UBD) techniques. His use of these techniques in geologic environments where UBD had never been utilized, provided Marvin with the insight that underbalanced drilling could be applied in more diverse situations than previously considered. It is his combined experience of working with both a large corporation and a small independent oil company that has given him the perspective to build and run profitable exploration and production companies.
