While acknowledging the reality of working in the oil business and all that entails, in the first chapter of "A World of Culture Oil and Golf," the author encounters the Kurds as they were in 1988. Next he's in Guatemala in 1989, where a dictator rules and guerrillas frequent the jungle adjacent to the drilling rig. All the while, Mr. Allard carries on a family life through the changes of being gone for weeks at a time. He presents other life aspects in all his assignments such as local style, international schools, crazy vacation trips, separations and reunions. As an insightful geologist, David Allard looks at the oil and gas business with an ability to provide interesting descriptions of the people and history of places he has encountered.
"A World of Culture Oil and Golf" is an easy-to-read account from an industry insider who traveled the globe and navigated the locales and personalities involved in exploring for oil. David Allard explains in professional oil and gas business descriptions how the international oil business works through various "you were there" cultural observations including political change and government stability issues in the host countries."
David Allard began working as a geologist in the oil business in San Francisco, CA after finishing school in Pennsylvania. He moved in 1981 to the oil patch of Midland, Texas to work for a major company, and in 1988 to Houston working international projects. In 1998, after joining an independent oil and gas company, he moved his family to live in Egypt, followed five years later by a Scotland assignment. David took on management roles of increasing responsibility starting in 2000. After returning to the US in 2006 work locations have involved 3 different states. David has had a varied career of over 35 years as a petroleum geologist, involving many new field discoveries, publications and public presentations. He loves public speaking and golf!
