Hank Porter | Operations Manager at Lime Rock Resources on Energy Crue

I was able to sit down with Hank Porter at the Petroleum Club of Houston to chat about his career as a fourth generation oilfield hand. We discussed his previous roles and the decisions that were made behind each career move. From working at Halliburton and eventually moving over to the service side, it’s good to hear that he has sat at both sides of the table.
Really enjoyed hearing everything from his involvement early in his career during the Macondo incident, to his reasoning on how people should view their career path: don’t have a 5 year plan, instead, never pass up an opportunity…you never know where or when they come.
