MARGARET P. GRAHAM, Founder and President of MPG Petroleum, Inc., graduated from Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas. Class of 1979, with a Bachelor of Arts in Geology. Since graduation Ms. Graham has continuously been engaged in the Upstream Oil and Gas Sector and has developed a very broad range of expertise.

Ms. Graham founded MPG Petroleum, Inc. in 1985 and early on diversified into the Contract Operations business beginning with 38 oil wells. The experience gained in Production Operations proved invaluable, including but not limited to Oil Well Workover, Oil Sales, Joint Interest Billing Accounting, Revenue Disbursement, and Regulatory filing. Operations began in the Somerset Field and continued soon after into the Leming Field where Ms. Graham was involved in the field’s early development. Subsequent focus was on prospect generation in deeper targets spanning Central and Southwest Texas to the Texas Gulf Coast. Today, MPG is engaged in highly proprietary, deep exploration work and has developed a very large portfolio of conventional and unconventional prospects, targeting world-class sized oil and gas reserves. MPG’s team of Geoscientists and Engineers are +40 years experienced, having worked in major basins domestically and internationally.

Prior to forming MPG Petroleum, Inc. Ms. Graham served as Exploration Geologist for Tesoro Petroleum. Her first prospect was drilled at age 23 and resulted in a new field discovery in the Magnolia Beach Field. She was next assigned a reconnaissance study of the Maverick Basin. This work was an early precursor to the Eagle Ford Shale Play, as well as the Pearsall, Glen Rose and James Lime plays of Maverick County. Ms. Graham assisted with the early work in the deep, tight, Wilcox gas play, eventually leading to the Bob West Field discovery. Prior to joining Tesoro Petroleum, Ms. Graham served as Geological Technician to Gulf Energy and was trained as a well-site Geologist. Ms. Graham also served as a Geological Consultant to Rio Exploration and to Durst Energy Corporation prior to forming MPG Petroleum, Inc.

Serving as 1997 –1998 Chairman of the Southwest Chapter of the American Petroleum Institute, other professional affiliations are the South Texas Geological Society, the San Antonio Geophysical Society, the Society of Petroleum Engineers, the Society of Professional Earth Scientists and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists.
