Alan Mourgues
Hi there. Thanks for visiting.

I'm a Petroleum Reservoir Engineer with twenty plus years of international Oil & Gas industry experience. I've held employee positions in small and large organizations, as well as consulting as independent and as part of a major global advisory Group.

Throughout my career, I've had exposure to a wide range of projects of varying degrees of technical complexity and commercial maturity, onshore and offshore, across the project life span from early exploration through to appraisal and development stages.

My primary focus is on reserves and resources evaluations, production forecasting, field development planning, recovery and production optimization, uncertainty analysis & risk assessments, and economic modelling.

Based In Australia, through my consulting business moREc I provide reservoir engineering and subsurface technical expertise to Australian and international companies operating in the conventional Oil & Gas and CSG Industries. My service offering includes desktop studies, peer reviews, due diligence, data rooms, reserves evaluations, independent expert reviews, and competent person’s reports.

Technical excellence, business acumen and exceptional communication skills are key elements of my value proposition.

Educator at heart, I specialize in designing bespoke training courses. Additionally, I serve as a guest lecturer at the University of Queensland for the Masters in Petroleum Engineering Program. Please visit the Resources page to stay updated with the educational materials that I will continue to upload.

In late 2022, I founded and launched CrowdField, a marketplace that connects Oil & Gas and Energy businesses with skilled professionals for freelance solutions and digital products. CrowdField's mission is to assist skilled individuals in monetizing their talents as the Energy transition progresses. To learn more, visit crowdfield.net.

Over the past year, I have developed a strong interest in leveraging my AI, prompt engineering, and NoCode skills to create customized automations and workflows. These solutions aim to provide my clients with a comprehensive approach to streamline their decision-making processes throughout the entire value chain.

My objective for the moREc website and its LinkedIn page is to share the tools I have developed throughout my career, and also provide live updates as I continue to develop new tools, processes, and workflows. Special emphasis will be given to areas such as AI, NoCode, Notion, Python, and Excel/PowerQuery/VBA. Expect products related to my subsurface and financial skillsets, but additionally, join me as I explore productivity and efficiency tools using the latest tech stacks that are constantly being released at an accelerated pace.

Highly recommend getting in touch and seeing for yourself.”
Kevan Quammie
Development & Appraisal Manager, Central Petroleum Ltd.
“Alan is an extremely competent consulting Reservoir Engineer. In late 2019, he was commissioned to build a simulation model for the Mereenie Oil & Gas Field, which has been on production since the early 1980’s (long and complex history). In a short period of time, he was able to to deliver the base model, alternate history matches and field forecasts. These, along with the comprehensive report, have been valuable in business planning and resource estimation exercises.”
Dan Fearfield
Consulting Geologist at Santos
Alan is an exceptional RE. His combination of analytical skills, reservoir engineering knowledge and problem solving capabilities are outstanding. He has the ability to quickly understand the key issues which need to be solved, gather the data and rapidly build a methodical workflow to deliver the best technical solution. Alan is then able to set that into a business context to maximise the value of the solution to the business.”
David Guise
Director at Ederline Investments Pty. Ltd.
“Alan is a very competent Petroleum Engineer with a wide range of experience and an amazing ability to rapidly analyse complex matters and to formulate a rational and pragmatic solution to any problems that may arise. He is a great mentor of less experienced staff and is very accomplished at explaining technical matters to non-technical staff even if they are senior to him”
Oliver Thomas

“I’ve had the pleasure of working in the same team as Alan over several years now. Alan has strong organisational skills, not just in managing his time and tasks but critically in the use of methodical workflows when building models. He sets a plan and thoroughly records his work. Where some Engineers would be willing to accept shallow reasoning, Alan will continue questioning and probing until he is satisfied that best practice has been applied”
