Mr. Chovanetz's career spans a variety of engineering disciplines as an employee of major petroleum firms and as a consultant, both in North America and overseas.

Most recently, Mr. Chovanetz was employed as an Reservoir Engineering Advisor at Hess Corporation where he served in diverse petroleum engineering roles as a Reservoir and Planning Engineer for company's operated and non-operated assets in Africa, directing annual budgets up to $200 million for development of major producing offshore properties in deep water Equatorial Guinea and onshore in Algeria.

Mr. Chovanetz holds a BS and MS degrees in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Texas and is a registered professional engineer in the state of Texas.
