As a geoscientist, Greg was involved in the exploration and development of the prolific Haynesville/Middle Bossier shale resource play of East Texas and northern Louisiana. Prior to joining Common Resources, he was the manager of geology in the Ark-La-Tex division for EnerVest Management Partners Ltd involved in acquisitions and development. Miller has 28 years of industry experience with an emphasis on field exploitation.
