Dennis R. Kittler
Dennis R. Kittler, Managing Member and Founder of Jurassic Fuel Trading, LLC has been in the upstream side of the energy industry for more than four decades of crude oil producing operations involving exploration and production of hundreds of oil and gas wells both onshore and offshore USA. Before founding Jurassic Fuel Trading, LLC, in 2015 and Jurassic SWD (Saltwater Disposal), LLC in 2016, Mr. Kittler held the position of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of a number of privately owned energy and oil and gas operating companies that specialized in the acquisition of producing properties and generating seismic-based oil drilling prospects along the Mid and Upper Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast, Oklahoma and Mississippi.
After having earned his Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Finance at Coe College in Iowa, Mr. Kittler received his Master of Business Administration (MBA), with honors, in Marketing Management at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota. Following his term of active duty with the US Army and the US Army National Guard from 1967 through 1972, he held sales/management and executive level positions with several nationally recognized corporations (IBM Corp., Ampex Stereo Tape Music Division, Miami Dolphins NFL) until he began his oil career in 1975 as a marketing specialist in the Rocky Mountain region for ENI Exploration Company. He soon became a partner and Vice President with that firm, which structured, sponsored and marketed more than fifty (50) diversified oil and gas drilling programs that involved dozens of industry partners and drilled hundreds of oil and natural gas wells throughout the United States and Canada. ENI Corporation was considered the largest fund raiser within the independent oil and gas industry at that time.
In 1979, Mr. Kittler resigned from ENI and became President and CEO of a Houston-based independent oil and gas exploration and production company involved in sponsoring drilling and operating wells throughout the Mid and Upper Texas Gulf Coast region. In late 1986, after the company had divested and sold its Texas producing properties, Mr. Kittler traveled overseas to form a joint venture with the Republic of China (China National Oil Co.), along with selected clients in South Korea, including Lucky Gold Star Corp., pursuing producing oil drilling properties to supply crude oil for Korea’s refinery feed stock source needs.
In the early 1990’s, Mr. Kittler formed a new independent oil and gas drilling company and continued to raise millions of dollars to fund more than thirty (30) joint venture development drilling programs. It was then in 2015 and 2016 that Jurassic Fuel Trading and Jurassic SWD (Saltwater Disposal) was formed. It was a natural shift into the fuel trading business and the saltwater disposal business as the Permian Basin in West Texas quickly became a major producer of crude oil and natural gas in the USA. The Coved-19 Pandemic starting in late 2019 and currently 2020, it forced many oil field operators and service companies to go into lockdown, Mr. Kittler had no choice but to do the same and to seek a new and challenging opportunity.
Mr. Kittler has been an active member in the Houston Geological Society, Houston Producers’ Forum, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Texas Independent Producers and Royalty Owners Association and Independent Petroleum Association of America. He also has been an with the American Association of Professional Landsmen, Texas Alliance of Energy Producers and a number of other professional organizations. A member of the Petroleum Club of Houston, Mr. Kittler is also active member of Sigma Nu Fraternity (Beta Epsilon) and with the Houston West Chamber of Commerce, the Galveston Island Chamber of Commerce and Lakeside Improvement Association’s Board of Directors, the Galveston Historical Foundation and Knights of Momus (Galveston). He is a life member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and founding member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, as well as a member of the National Rifle Association of America, Ducks Unlimited, National Turkey Federation and Coastal Conservation of Texas. Mr. Kittler spent several years as both Assistant Instructor and instructor for the Dale Carnegie Corporation’s “Professional Sales Course” as an avocation in Denver and Houston Dale Carnegie offices.
