In 2014 Schreiner left that firm to pursue a Master’s Degree in International Oil and Gas Management from the Institut de Hautes Etudes Internationales et du Développement in Geneva, Switzerland. Schreiner is a native Texan who grew up working on a family cattle ranch where he learned Spanish from a young age.
1. What do you enjoy most at Rystad Energy?
Extremely dynamic firm, full of young and energetic people who have a passion for the type of work they do. Rystad Energy is a great mix of a variety of people from different backgrounds, countries and experiences, as international as the oil business itself. Because of this the work environment is always interactive and collegial and everyone is in a position to teach and learn every day. Working for an international intelligence firm offers opportunity to become knowledgeable about all different aspects of the oil and gas industry.
2. What experience did you bring to Rystad Energy?
Having spent several years working in both the U.S. shale space and Latin America I feel like I bring a good mix regional and international experience in the oil and gas business. I’ve worked with all of the national oil companies in the region and have experience with the smaller shale focused E&P players as well. With my educational background and language capabilities I help grow our presence in emerging markets and I appreciate the ability to interact with diverse groups of people in that role.
