Gary W. Davis has more than 40 years of experience in the natural gas industry. He started his career in 1978 with Marathon Oil as a Plant Engineer at the Yates Gas Plant. In 1980 he joined Western Gas Resources as their Chief Engineer, and after 18 years of service left his position as Senior Vice President of Production, Engineering, Safety and Environmental to stake out on his own.
In 1999 Mr. Davis formed Kahuna Gas, LLC to design, build, own and operate the Bazor Ridge Gas Processing Facility. This facility, located in Wayne County, Mississippi, was designed to treat 25 MMSCFD of hydrocarbon-rich gas and condensate containing 20% H2S.
Kahuna Ventures LLC was formed to be the General Manager of Kahuna Gas and to provide engineering and project management services to the industry. After Kahuna Gas sold the Bazor Ridge Facility, Kahuna Ventures focused in earnest on the engineering and consulting business and has since grown to 180 employees, including 50 engineers and project managers, along with 14 field construction managers.
Mr. Davis received his B.S. in Chemical and Petroleum Refining Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines.
