More recently he has been involved in training initiatives, and he is currently a Tutor and Lecturer for Heriot Watt’s Masters Program in Petroleum Engineering.
Peter has taught extensively. He was Adjunct Professor on the University of Texas’ Software Engineering Master’s program, and a Visiting Professor with Brunei University where he taught modules of their Petroleum Geoscience programs. He has given more than 60 industry schools on Petroleum Geoscience, Subsurface Facies Analysis and Log Interpretation, and from 2001-2004 he managed a Schlumberger training company for the Middle East and Asia/Pacific.
Peter has presented more than 30 technical papers, and in 1999-2000 was an SPWLA Distinguished Lecturer addressing two themes, “Chasing Channel Sands” and “Evaluating Fractured Basement”.

He received an SPWLA Award of Appreciation in 1999, and an AAPG Distinguished Service Award for “promoting the internationalization of petroleum geoscience” in 2000. In 2002 he was elected as the AAPG’s Vice President. He was a candidate for AAPG President in 2005-2006.
Peter is a Past President of the Formation Evaluation Society of Malaysia, and has been active on the technical committees of several international AAPG, SPWLA and SPE conferences and colloquia. A “Certified Geologist” of the AAPG-DPA, and “Chartered Geologist” of the Geological Society of London, he is also a member of the DPA, EMD and DEG divisions of the AAPG.
