EERC Welcomes Dom Druke

Dominic (Dom) Druke is a Senior Geoscientist at the EERC, where he interfaces with a diverse team of scientists and engineers to assess project uncertainties in oil and gas development and geologic CO2 storage. His specific job activities include development of geophysical models of the subsurface, regional geological characterization, and petrophysical analysis of geophysical well log data. He holds an M.S. degree in Geology from New Mexico State University and a B.S. degree in Geology from the University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh. Prior to his position at the EERC, he served as a Lead Exploration and Development Geoscientist at Independence Resources Management in Houston, Texas.

Dom’s principal areas of interest and expertise include regional basin evaluation and risking, prospect evaluation and appraisal, geologic and geophysical data integration, development geology and planning, well optimization, and operations geology.

Dom was interested in his new role because of the project variety. “This position is a great opportunity to apply my skills, learn new skills, and learn about geoscience-related projects outside of oil and gas,” Dom said.

Dom is from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and lives in Houston, Texas. He has five children, ranging from ages 9 to 16. He says life is full of adventure right now, and his family enjoys spending time together hiking, deep-sea fishing, going to the beach, and playing sports. Dom and his family live on a small hobby farm with horses, donkeys, goats, cows, chickens, bees, ducks, dogs, cats, and an alligator.
