Dr. Kim Miskell Gerhardt

Kim Miskell Gerhardt is a Consulting Geologist in Durango, Colorado.  She moved to Durango from Houston in 1999 after 10 years at Exxon Production Research Company (now ExxonMobil Upstream Research Lab).  She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Geology from Wellesley College, a Master’s Degree in Marine Geology and Geophysics from the University of Miami and a PhD in Geology from Rice University.  

Kim began her career as a Grade Control Geologist at Kerr-McGee’s Church Rock Uranium Mine, near Gallup, New Mexico in 1977.  After returning to graduate school, she eventually joined E.P.R. in 1989 in the Clastic Facies & Reservoir Analysis Section, working well logs, core and outcrop on the Moxa Arch in Wyoming.  Within a year she was assigned to an interdisciplinary group working Prudhoe Bay Field in Alaska. Three years later she transferred into the Seismic Stratigraphy Section and had various assignments including deepwater sands in the North Sea, Nigeria, Angola and the Gulf of Mexico.  At the time, 3D surveys were just beginning to be widely used and the exquisite detail seen in these reservoirs was unprecedented.

In addition to affiliate assignments, Kim also co-taught various internal courses and field schools at Exxon including Sequence Stratigraphy, Seismic Stratigraphy and Seismic Attribute Analysis.  

After moving to Durango, Kim served on the Colorado Oil and Gas Commission from 2004-2008.  In addition to consulting, Kim is working with Dr. Gary Gianniny of Fort Lewis College on the detailed stratigraphy of the outcropping Pennsylvanian Hermosa Group, which is exposed in the Animas River Valley.  

She has been a member of the Four Corners Geological Society since 2000 and has served in numerous offices (currently Newsletter Editor).  She is also a member of GSA, AAPG and is the Secretary of the Rocky Mountain Section – AAPG Foundation.  She indulges her new interest in Archaeology by volunteering at the Anasazi Heritage Center in Dolores, CO and hiking to rock art panels in the Four Corners region.
