Amanda Johnston

I started my career in the oil and gas industry as many others do, with field experience. I mud logged during the summer of 2017 with Datalog Geological Services and gained additional experience through several internships with companies including Southwestern Energy (2018), ExxonMobil (2019), and Hess (2019). At the end of 2019, I accepted a full-time position as a Foundation Geologist with Hess Corp. During my time with the company, I’ve had the great opportunity of completing a rotation in the Guyana Basin learning about offshore operations, and I’m currently in an exciting rotation as an operations geologist working the Williston Basin, North Dakota.

I earned my M.S. in geology from University of Louisiana at Lafayette and my B.S. in geology from Stephen F. Austin State University. While beginning my early career, I Vice-Chaired the newly formed HGS Student Expo Committee in 2021 and will be chairing this committee for HGS in 2022 and 2023. I am truly honored to receive a nomination for the HGS Secretary position. If nominated, I would look forward to learning more about the society and its members, as well as support the growth of its membership as a board member.
