Jim has been Oil and Gas in some capacity for more than 30 years. Beginning his career on a service rig, Jim worked throughout Canada and overseas eventually becoming a Well Site Supervisor. After 16 years of on-site supervision, Jim went onto become the Completions Superintendent for a major multi-national oil company. This extensive field experience uniquely positioned Jim to identify opportunities to improve efficiency in our industry. He founded Competition Well Services in 2000 with the vision that it would be an innovative and agile company, responding to the industry’s needs in real time. Jim is still involved in the day to day field operations of Competition Well Services, and you are just as likely to find him in him on a well site as in the office. In the past 3 years Jim has personally overseen many projects, including the Winter Petroleum Project (2017 ~ 50 wells, associated on-site equipment and flowlines and 80 pipelines) and the Tallgrass Abandonment Project (2018 ~20 wells cut and caps, 30 sites for decommissioning, including flowlines, and 128 pipeline segments for pigging and abandonment).
