Keith N. Mangini
Keith Mangini is a principal shareholder and Chairman of Huntley & Huntley, Chairman of its institutional joint venture, Olympus Energy and a principal of its affiliate, Bow & Arrow Land Company, LLC.
Mr. Mangini joined Huntley in 1978 as a Staff Geologist. At that time and since its founding, Huntley’s principal services included geological feasibility and due diligence reports, well engineering and drilling studies, and reserve and economics evaluations. For many years, the Company evaluated dozens of fields and thousands of wells annually. Mr. Mangini held positions of increasing responsibility at Huntley becoming its Chief Geologist and Vice President of the Company by 1986. In 1994, he purchased the Company to become its fourth generation owner, CEO and President.
In 1995, Mr. Mangini saw an opportunity to change the Company’s business model and strategic direction, shifting from its long history of oil and gas consulting to oil and natural gas exploration and production. Utilizing Huntley’s wealth of basin knowledge, industry contacts, and O&G business familiarity, he successfully converted Huntley from a respected oil and gas technical consulting firm to one of Western Pennsylvania’s most respected oil and natural gas developers. Since then, under his navigation, Huntley has acquired interests in approximately 1,000 oil and gas wells, nearly 400 of which are operated by Huntley. To accomplish this, Mr. Mangini has formed and overseen the management of twenty-six limited partnership businesses focused on oil and gas exploration and production. Since 1978, he has been directly responsible for all technical analysis, and key business, legal and financial negotiations covering nearly $1.2 billion of oil and natural gas direct investments in drilling ventures.
Mr. Mangini is, today, one of the Appalachian Basin’s most respected geologists having a rooted, almost instinctive, geologic understanding of the Appalachian Basin. He brings forty years of experience in oil and gas valuations and reserve studies, prospect generation, oilfield development and finance, and project management, evaluation and risk management. His skills have been called upon for reserve studies & appraisals, and buy/sell transactions for SEC scrutiny of public companies, as well as for the O&G holdings of many private companies and individuals.
Although very much focused on the Appalachian Basin, Mr. Mangini has broad exposure and understanding of the oil and gas business throughout the United States, as he has experience in almost every producing basin in North America. During his career, he has negotiated numerous joint-operating agreements covering areas of Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Michigan, West Virginia, New Mexico and Utah.
Mr. Mangini is a graduate from West Virginia University with a degree in Geology. He is a Registered Professional Geologist (CPG) in Pennsylvania, a Certified Petroleum Geologist, a 40-year member of the AAPG and the PAPG of which he is also a past President, and a 40-year member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). He is past Chairman of the Board of the YMCA Deer Valley, and Chairman of its Financial Development Committee, and Property and Safety Committee, and currently Chairs its New Facilities Committee.
