Ms. Rabun previously worked at Noble Energy as a reservoir and production engineer in the Wattenberg Business Unit. During her time as a production engineer she was responsible for appraising and selecting new drill locations, monitoring base production, and evaluating secondary recovery candidates. Ms. Rabun then transitioned to various reservoir engineering roles gaining experience in prospect development, exploration and reservoir systems, acquisitions and divestitures, resource assessment, and project performance analysis.
Previous work experience includes an internship with Ryder Scott Petroleum Engineers where Ms. Heinle modeled various infill drilling scenarios in the Bakken formation and fracture break through patterns between wells completed in the Bakken and Three Forks formations. Before joining Heinle & Associates, Inc., Ms. Heinle worked at Noble Energy as a production and completions engineer in the Wattenberg Business Unit. Her responsibilities included the economic analysis and management of vertical and horizontal well production, wellbore integrity, horizontal re-fracs and completion designs. She also analyzed various completion designs and well recoveries to identify methods of best completion and production practices.
