Read Keith's Bio
Keith joined Huntley & Huntley in 1978 as a Staff Geologist and worked through the ranks to become Vice President of the Company in 1986. In 1995, Keith purchased Huntley & Huntley, Inc. to become its fourth generation owner, CEO and President. Keith is a graduate from West Virginia University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Geology. He is a licensed geologist in Pennsylvania, a member of the AAPG and the PAPG. He is a former President of the PAPG and is Chairman of the Board of the YMCA Deer Valley. He has thirty-three years of combined experience in oil and gas valuations, finance, project management, prospect generation, evaluation and risk management. He has performed reserve studies & appraisals, and buy/sale transactions for SEC scrutiny for public companies as well as for many private companies and individuals. In addition, Keith is one of the Appalachian Basin’s most respected Upper Devonian geologist.
In 1995, as CEO and President, Keith changed the business direction of Huntley & Huntley, Inc. from its long history of oil and gas consulting to oil and natural gas exploration and production. Since then, under Keith’s supervision, Huntley has acquired interests in approximately 1,000 wells, nearly 400 of which are operated by Huntley. Keith has negotiated numerous joint-operating agreements covering areas of Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Michigan, West Virginia, New Mexico and Utah. Utilizing Huntley’s wealth of knowledge, contacts and business familiarity, Keith has successfully converted Huntley from a respected oil and gas technical consulting firm to one of Western Pennsylvania’s most respected oil and gas developers. Beyond broad exposure and understanding of the oil and gas business throughout the United States, Keith has a rooted, almost instinctive geologic understanding of the Appalachian Basin. Keith oversees the management of twenty-six limited partnership businesses focused on oil and gas exploration and production. Since 1978, Keith has been directly involved with or responsible for all legal, financial and technical evaluation and negotiation of nearly 1.4 billion dollars of oil and natural gas acquisition, valuation and or drilling ventures. Although very much focused on the Appalachian Basin, Keith has experience in almost every producing basin in North America.
