David Flint

Dave Flint is the president and founder of Forward Energy Group Inc, leading Forward’s specialized petroleum consulting services since 1999.  Dave is a professional geologist and MBA with over 32 years of experience in management and technical positions in the upstream oil and gas industry.

Dave developed the Natural Gas Supply Trends in Western Canada  in response to the need within many companies for sound data and comprehensive insights on the strategic choices available within the gas-producing provinces of western Canada.  Dave’s understanding of management issues coupled with his analytical strengths make him an ideal partner in evaluating and selecting strategic alternatives in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.  Combining his experience in resource assessment and the tight gas plays in both Canada and the United States, Dave assembled the Western Canada Tight Gas Resource Characterization project to engage key government and industry stakeholders in analysis and discussion of this critical unconventional gas resource.  He is also the architect in Forward Energy’s play entry analysis service line, creatively fulfilling clients’ needs for an in-depth understanding of how other companies have established success at entering new play areas.  Dave is often called upon as a speaker for various industry groups.

Prior to founding Forward Energy, Dave was a member of the senior management team of Wascana Energy Inc with responsibilities for natural gas investment strategy in Western Canada.  As General Manager of the Shallow Gas Business unit, Dave led a large staff dedicated to finding, developing and producing gas in Alberta and Saskatchewan and personally faced many of the leadership challenges that industry participants wrestle with today.  Dave also provided leadership in exploration and strategic business development efforts during his engagement with Wascana.

The foundation of Dave’s petroleum career was thirteen years with Amoco Canada in Calgary and Amoco Production in Denver, beginning as an exploration geologist and progressing through positions of increasing responsibility, to team leadership and supervisory roles.

Dave holds advanced degrees in geology and management, is a Professional Geologist in Alberta (member of APEGGA), and a member of both the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists (CSPG) and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG).
