About me

Director and Principal Geologist

Since my MSc graduation in Geology at Utrecht University (The Netherlands) and at the Exploration Geophysics department of ITC in Delft (The Netherlands) in 1997 and later PhD research in Geology at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, I focussed his career on natural resources exploration for hydrocarbons, minerals, groundwater and geothermal energy. After my start as groundwater and mineral exploration geologist at ITC-Delft and a hydrocarbon exploration geologist at Gulf Netherlands, I added exploration for geothermal energy to my hydrocarbons exploration experience through numerous geoscientific-exploration projects and – studies worldwide in companies like Schlumberger, CGG and Fugro. In addition to technical, I also fulfilled team- and general management besides business development roles.

In 2015 I founded the company Provenance Exploration Consultancy BV. In this company, till end 2020, I, together with Vincent van Hoegaerden, Nuretdin Kaymakci and Tijmen Jan Moser did several exploration projects and studies for deep geothermal energy in the Netherlands and abroad. I am an active member of the European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE), American Association of Petroleum Geoscientists (AAPG) and of the International Geothermal Association (IGA). In addition I am a member of the board of stakeholders of ETIP-DG European Technology & Innovation Platform on Deep Geothermal – Mexico Geothermal Projects. As a final note, I am very passionate about making geothermal exploration a success by fully exploiting the benefits of cross-over between the various natural resources exploration techniques in an innovative way. In addition I got skilled in gravity & magnetic processing, interpretation & modelling.
