One of our many TOP Energy subject-matter experts and course creators is Jim Crompton. Jim retired from Chevron in 2013 after almost 37 years. After moving to Colorado Springs, Colorado, Jim established the Reflections Data Consulting LLC to continue his work in the area of data management and analytics for the Oil & Gas industry.  Jim was a Distinguished Lecturer for the Society of Petroleum Engineers in 2010-2011, speaking on the topic of “Putting the Focus on Data.” He graduated from the Colorado School of Mines (BS in Geophysical Engineering in 1974 and MS in Geophysics in 1976) before joining Chevron in Denver, Colorado. He later earned an MBA degree (1996) from Our Lady of the Lake University (San Antonio, Texas).

His contributions in applications of information technology to business problems, led Jim to be named a Chevron Fellow in 2002. In 2013, Jim and Dr. Dutch Holland co-authored a book titled The Future Belongs to the Digital Engineer, focusing on the issues of the impact of emerging digital technology on oil and gas operations. Jim has since authored three additional books. Jim was selected to be on the board of the SPE Digital Energy Technology Section (DETS) and serves as chair of the Digital Transformation committee under DETS. Starting January 2018, Jim teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in Petroleum Data Analytics at the Colorado School of Mines.
