Rohan Irvin

Senior Reservoir and Completions Engineer

Rohan Irvin is a reservoir engineer with 17 years of oil and gas experience at Oxy, Woodside, EnergyCapture, and others. He believes energy abundance is the foundation of a prosperous world. As a member of the ResFrac team, he can have the greatest impact on energy abundance by helping operators optimize their developments.

Prior to joining ResFrac, he advised EnergyCapture on the development of their unconventional gas assets in Queensland, Australia. Using ResFrac to evaluate and optimize their completion designs, he was able to significantly improve the economic value of the development. He has worked on most of the major basins in the US as well as West Africa, the Middle East, North West Shelf (Australia), and India. While with Oilex in India, he led the engineering evaluation of the country’s first horizontal, multi-stage frac completion. With Oxy, he led a multi-disciplinary subsurface team during the early evaluation of the Permian Basin’s unconventional potential. Throughout his career, he has been responsible for exploration support, appraisal data acquisition, development planning, and reservoir management of both conventional and unconventional assets.

Rohan received a Bachelor of Engineering degree in oil & gas engineering from the University of Western Australia (receiving the Dr. Mark Skinner Prize for the top final year student) and a Masters of Science in petroleum engineering from the University of Southern California.

Rohan is a husband and father of two, Queen’s Scout (Eagle Scout), multiple Ironman finisher, and surfer. He once watched the sun rise on New Year’s Day from the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
