James Lakings, Chief Technical Officer


Dr. Lakings is an expert geoscientist who has a history of proving innovative new geophysical techniques for imaging subsurface geological structures and mapping crustal permeability. He has worked for both operating and service companies, but finds his passion for developing state-of-the-art solutions to industry leading problems in the exploration and development of natural resources. At Fracture ID, he has pioneered the new scientific field drillbit geomechanics where his diverse industry experiences in the exploration sciences and microearthquake seismology are providing rapid market adoption of an entirely new, cutting edge approach for logging mechanical rock properties in unconventional reservoirs using continuous, high-resolution measurements of drilling vibrations.
