Since 1980, Kathy has specialized in detailed visual reservoir rock analyses. She holds a U.S. patent on the technique
she developed for observing and rating gas shows from cuttings and core samples (a description of the technique is in the appendix
of our example report).
She was an invited guest speaker at the CSPG-SEPM Meeting in Calgary, Alberta (June 1997) to share
her experiences in visually estimating Archie’s cementation exponent "m" in order to calculate more accurate water saturations, and
at an RMAG sponsored symposium (October 1997) to share her experiences in successfully applying visual rock analysis in exploration
and exploitation projects. See our Documents and Publications page for copies of the available papers.
Besides extensive Mid-Continent/Rocky
Mountain, Gulf Coast, and Canadian experience, Kathy has traveled to Australia, Malaysia, and Egypt for the purposes of completing
visual analysis projects as well as training company geologists in the methods used. A more detailed experience list is on our Formations
and Regions page.
Kathy had extensive reservoir rock analysis training with Canadian Hunter Exploration under the supervision
of Howard King, Lorraine Druyff, and Robert M. Sneider (originator of the RMS classification system for clastics and partner with
Core Labs/Reservoirs, Inc. in the World Wide Rock Catalog. The RMS classification system is described in the appendix of our example report).
Kathy graduated Magna Cum Laude from Jersey Village High School in Houston, Texas. In 1991 she received her Bachelor of Science degree
in Geophysics-Geology with a math minor from the University of Houston.
She is a member of the American Association of Petroleum
Geologists and the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists.
Kathy and Bob Stolper have worked as a team, providing reservoir rock analysis to the oil and gas industry, since 1989.
They live in Arvada, Colorado with their five children.
