He has organized multiple technical sessions on natural gas resource assessment for the AAPG, and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. He is an asso- ciate editor of the AAPG Bulletin and The Mountain Geologist and has pub- lished and given numerous invited talks on studies concerning the size and distribution of U.S., Canadian, and Mexican natural gas resources and comparisons of resource assessment methodologies. As director of the Potential Gas Agency, he directs a team of 145 geologists, geophysi- cists, and petroleum engineers in their biennial assessment of remaining U.S. natural gas resources. Dr. Curtis teaches petroleum geology, petro- leum geochemistry, petroleum design, and stratigraphy at the Colorado School of Mines, where he also supervises graduate student research. He holds a Ph.D. in geology from Ohio State University, and an M.S. and a B.A. in geology from Miami University. lames l. Emme, vice president of Exploration at the Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, oversees all of the company's exploration activities through- out North America, the Gulf of Mexico, and more than a dozen other inter- national areas. Mr. Emme joined Anadarko in 1981 and was named man- ager of geology for Anadarko Algeria Corporation in 1990. In 1998 he was named manager of the offshore Gulf of Mexico and Alaska exploitation effort in Houston and was promoted to manager, domestic exploitation in 1999. In 2000, Mr. Emme was named vice president, Canada, and was based in Calgary, where he oversaw the exploration and development operations throughout the company's holdings in the western provinces of Canada and in the Beaufort Sea/MacKenzie Delta region. Prior to joining Anadarko, Mr. Emme was employed as a geologist with the Arco Oil and Gas Com- pany. He is a graduate of the Colorado School of Mines, where he earned an M.S. in geology in 1981, and the University of California at Davis, where he earned a B.S. in geology in 1978. Mr. Emme is a member of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, the Houston Geological Society, and the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists. Vello A. Kuuskraa, president of Advanced Resources, is internationally recognized for his work in energy economics, supply modeling, and new

APPENDIX A 91 oil and gas recovery technologies. He served on the Secretary of Energy's Natural Gas Supply Task Force, was a member of the National Academy of Sciences Study Committee for Defining the National Energy Modeling System, and recently testified before the Federal Energy Regulatory Com- mission on the outlook for natural gas supplies. Mr. Kuuskraa is a recog- nized expert on the technologies of coalbed methane recovery and en- hanced oil recovery and their adaptation for CO2 sequestration. He served as the lead expert on coalbed methane for the Secretary of Energy's Trade and Development Missions to China, India, and South Africa and is work- ing with numerous public and private entities to address greenhouse gas emissions using carbon sequestration. He currently serves as chairman of the Technical Advisory Board of the Department of Energy/European Union/Klimatek and industry consortium led by BP called the Carbon Capture Project. He has published over 100 technical papers, reports, and presentations on energy resources and future natural gas supplies. He received the 2001 Ellis Island Medal of Honor, which recognizes individu- als for exceptional professional and patriotic contributions by America's diverse cultural ancestry and was a 1986-1987 Society of Petroleum Engi- neers Distinguished Lecturer.
