Tim

Tim McHargue went to the University of Missouri for his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees with a thesis on Ordovician conodonts. A couple of months before graduation in 1974 came the Oil Embargo and a job offer from Phillips Petroleum. Thus began a career in the petroleum industry. A seismic interpretation project on the Indus Fan started Tim’s interest in turbidite architecture. Next, Tim returned to school at the U. of Iowa. After completing a PhD in carbonates in 1981, he accepted a position at Chevron. During the next 28 years, Tim spent about equal time in exploration and research. He returned to research in turbidite reservoirs in 1997 and eventually assembled a team to work on characterization of new discoveries in West Africa until retirement in 2009. Tim’s position as Consulting Professor at Stanford University began in 2002 where he collaborates on research on turbidite depositional systems and teaches courses on turbidite architecture and clastic sequence stratigraphy. Tim also is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Missouri.
