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.
