Soliton Resources was established to seek overlooked exploration and appraisal assets in the North Sea, especially where thorough geoscience and modern technology have the potential to generate new opportunities.
Soliton Resources Limited is a private company formed in 2017 by Graham Goffey, who has 35 years of upstream oil and gas experience with companies including Conoco, LASMO, Paladin Resources and PA Resources. His career has included exploration, appraisal and development experience across the North Sea countries, Africa, Middle East, onshore Europe, Asia and Australasia. He has been involved in oil and gas discoveries in countries including the UK, Denmark, Tunisia, Pakistan and Indonesia and spent several years living and working in the latter two countries. Graham progressed through his career from geologist, team leader and VP exploration to general manager and managing director roles.
A geoscientist by training, throughout his career Graham has maintained an active, hands-on involvement in geoscience projects. He has published on subjects including deep water reservoirs, compressional fold belts, glacially-impacted petroleum systems and various North Sea oil and gas discoveries. He has co-convened numerous geoscientific conferences and co-edited Geological Society Special Publications on stratigraphic traps and fold-thrust belts. His most recent co-edited publication is Geological Society Memoir 52: 'UK Oil and Gas Fields, 50th Anniversary Commemorative Volume', a substantial memoir containing papers on almost 150 UK oil and gas fields and candidate CO2 storage sites. He was chairman of the Energy Group (formerly the Petroleum Group) of the Geological Society from 2008 to 2010 and is presently a member of the UK Oil and Gas Authority’s Exploration Taskforce and a director of the Oil and Gas Independents Association.
