Andrew AlffGeologist

Andrew Alff has been a geologist working in Texas since he graduated cum laude from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire with a bachelor’s degree in May of 1979. Out of college he provided geology for a number of small oil companies in the Luling-Branyon field area of Caldwell County, Texas. His consulting work resulted in the discovery of several new oil fields and wells under 2500’ that began production in excess of 100 barrels per day. He went from working the shallow fields in Caldwell County to working in Houston, Texas for a geophysical and geological consulting company mapping offshore Louisiana for major oil companies such as Exxon and British Petroleum. When oil prices plummeted in the late 1980’s he went back to being a consulting geologist. Most recently, his work in the Salt Flat Edwards field in Caldwell County, Texas has resulted in over 4 million barrels of oil being produced since 2007.
