about Us

Whether you need a single wellsite geologist or an integrated consulting team for a large frontier basin project, PRA is Alaska’s largest and most fully integrated petroleum consulting firm.

Petrotechnical Resources of Alaska (PRA) was founded in 1997 by a group of five independent consultants. Currently managed by Chris Livesey, Chantal Walsh and Tom Walsh, PRA has grown into a group of over 115 affiliated geologists, geophysicists, and petroleum engineers, among other diverse oil and gas professionals.

PRA is professionally licensed in the State of Alaska and is the sole company in the State of Alaska certified by the State of Alaska to provide integrated Petroleum Engineering consulting services.

Most of PRA’s affiliates have in excess of 20 years in the oil industry with the bulk of that experience in Alaska. PRA’s professionals have worked in every basin in Alaska on both exploration and development projects. From the North Slope to Cook Inlet, PRA consultants know and understand the regional geology, the unique operating conditions, and the regulatory environment.

PRA has state-of-the-art geoscience workstations with seismic interpretation, geologic modeling, reservoir modeling and simulation, and petrophysical software. PRA has also developed a database of Alaska digital well logs which are available for sale to our clients. This capability allows smaller companies to enjoy the same advantages in Alaskan exploration that previously were available only to large integrated oil companies.
