Dr Tim Hopper earned his PhD in Magnetic Resonance Imaging prior to moving into the oil and gas industry where he worked for Schlumberger for 10 years. His career with Schlumberger involved stints as wireline field engineer, senior research scientist, project manager (LWD NMR) and petro-physicist. Prior to starting NMR Services Australia, Tim worked for an African explorer as its principal petro-physicist.
From 2013 until its sale, Tim successfully steered NMR Services Australia (now Qteq) to more than 70% revenue growth year-on-year. That company designed, manufactured and supported wireline BMR tools across five continents, spanning all minerals and water markets. Tim was a Fulbright Scholar during his PhD and has earned several accolades over the years.
He has 19 patents to his name and has published more than a dozen technical papers. Tim’s passion is identifying new technologies and applying them outside of their normal realms. His wide experience enables him to quickly identify technological and engineering opportunities.
