Andrew Padman

Civil Engineering
Carnarvon Petroleum


Andrew joined Carnarvon in 2012 after previous engagements with the likes of Exxon, Woodside Petroleum, Premier Oil Newfield and Arc Energy. Specialising in providing advanced geological and geophysical exploration tools and concepts, Andrew has had success identifying, mapping and proposing prospects that have delivered significant commercial hydrocarbons, including two oil fields in Central Sumatra and a ~200mmbo oil filed in the Malay basin. Andrew led the business development team (covering S.E. Asia) of Newfield Corp to negotiate entry to acreage in Malaysia; Newfield’s position was monetised 12 years later in 2015 at just short of US$1billion. During his time at Arc Andrew managed the onshore exploration program which consisted of a drilling period of a continuous 18 months. Whilst at Carnarvon Andrew has played a significant role in mapping the Phoenix area which includes the Phoenix South and Roc discoveries.
