Andrew C. Newson, B.Sc., P. Geol., President Moose Oils 2014 Ltd.
Andrew Newson has over 30 years of experience in the geological and geophysical evaluations of overthrust belts. He is a Professional Geological Consultant registered in the province of Alberta. Andrew graduated with a B.Sc. (Hon) in geology from London University, England. Since then he has worked as a structural geologist specializing in the exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbon prospects in overthrust belts around the world.

He started work in New Zealand on the overthrust belt of the Taranaki basin. Later, he moved to Canada to work on projects in the Foothills of Alberta and British Columbia, Yukon and NWT. Since then he has worked domestically and internationally, to develop his expertise in evaluating these complex deformation styles.

Andrew demonstrates the ability to combine a wide range of data and a broad range of experience in analogue structures. This has led to numerous success. These include discoveries in the overthrust belts of the Taranaki basin of New Zealand in 1983 (McKee/ToeToe structure), the Alberta Foothills in 1993 (Moose Mountain) and the BC Foothills in 1991 and 1999 (Sikanni/Pocketknife).

As a consultant since 1991, Andrew has been involved with numerous projects for clients among the major, independent and junior oil and gas companies. Through Moose Oils 2014 Ltd he teaches in-house workshops on fold and thrust play evaluation techniques and regularly leads field trips for industry. He is closely involved in developing balanced cross section and dipmeter analysis software packages to assist in the structural interpretation of thrust and fold plays.
