Vice President and Chief Geologist

Edwin Macdonald is currently a Senior Geologist with St.Brendan’s Exploration and manages their regional office in Nova Scotia, Canada. Prior to accepting this position, Mr. Macdonald operated a private geologic consulting firm, which has been in operation since 1994.

Mr. Macdonald had previously served as Vice President, Exploration for Contact Exploration Inc. of Calgary Alberta from November 2006 until the company’s reorganization in May 2010. Contact’s main focus was exploration and oil production in New Brunswick.

Prior to his time at Contact, Mr. Macdonald worked as a geologist in the Western Canadian Basin for Seneca Energy and internationally as Project Geologist for Husky Energy. His international work was in both the East and South China Seas, which included the Liwan discovery by Husky Oil. That discovery well was the first deep water well drilled in the South China Sea and lead to a 7 tcf resource.

More recently, he has re-focused his exploration sights on Canadian frontier basins with an emphasis on east coast onshore and offshore Canada. He has evaluated several sub basins within the Central Maritimes Basin in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and New Brunswick concentrating on conventional and unconventional prospects. Mr. Macdonald joined the petroleum industry in 1993 after 6 years devoted to mineral exploration, with his early years being spent with a private consulting firm, prospecting conventional reservoirs for various major operators in the Western Canadian Basin.

Mr. Macdonald graduated from Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, with his BSc, in 1987. He holds a Professional Geoscientist certification in Nova Scotia and is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
