After 38 years as CEO, Harry Surkalo has retired from Surtek. Harry’s guidance and leadership positioned Surtek as the leading provider for chemical enhanced oil recovery consultation and laboratory services. He was honored with prestigious Henry Mattson Technical Achievements and IOR Pioneer awards from SPE along the way. Harry is still a Technical Advisor, but gave the keys to Malcolm Pitts and Kon Wyatt. After 63 years in the IOR/EOR business, Harry gets a break from unlocking the door and making that first pot of coffee.

We are excited to announce our newest addition to Surtek!  Mehdi Salehi joined Surtek in August as a Project Manager.  Mehdi earned his PhD in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Kansas and spent the past 10 years working at Tiorco and Nalco Champion where he gained experience in IOR/EOR processes and field applications.  His technical expertise and proven success in project management will complement our team of experts in the field of EOR.  We look forward to working with him!
