Steve Dobbs (BS in Geology, 1987)

Petroleum Geologist in Tulsa, Oklahoma

After graduating CWU in 1987, I went to grad school at Idaho State and Boise State University - and was a classmate of Nick Zentner!

I'm currently working as the Chief Geologist for Unit Petroleum, located in Tulsa OK. Unit Petroleum is a subsidiary of Unit Corporation (NYSE: UNT). I've been working with Unit going on two years and I love it. Great company with great people. We are currently exploring in the Anadarko Basin, Granite Wash and Wilcox Play in the Gulf Coast region. Part of my job is to help identify drilling locations on current lease hold as well as look for opportunities for future exploration efforts.

Dr. Bentley was my early inspiration in Geology and he will always hold a special place in my heart. He never wanted a student to "just get by" and not reach their full potential. He always challenged me and often threw chalk at me!
