Robbie Gries: Dare To Be Different


Distinguished Lecture Series: Robbie Gries: Dare To Be Different
With her dare to be different philosophy and pioneering spirit, Robbie Gries was the first woman to graduate in geology from Colorado State University and the first woman to become AAPG President, and president of the Geological Society of America. Gries started and has built her own company, Priority Oil & Gas, by drilling close to proved production as well as buying reserves where infill development is possible. These are the economic realities of the business. However, her heart lies in frontier exploration as one of the most exciting parts of being a petroleum geologist. Using resources from successful infill drilling projects, she is once again pioneering frontier plays in Colorado and Wyoming. She has also pioneered, and continues to play, a significant role in advancing women position in the oil and gas industry.
