Mr. Nabavian received his Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering from West Virginia University. He began his career with Chevron as a drilling & completions engineer in the Gulf of Mexico working the shelf and deepwater offshore blocks. He then transitioned to a horizontal coal bed methane company called CDX Gas as a Project Manager. Salar grew the business unit in Northern West Virginia to a successful profit center. CDX sold to Trust Company of the West for $835MM. He then transitioned to multiple entrepreneurial ventures in multiple basins such as East Texas, Appalachia, South Louisiana, Anadarko Basin and the SWD business in the Ft. Worth Basin. Salar eventually hired on with Inflection Energy as EVP with assets in the Marcellus Shale. Salar and his team grew the acreage position from 1,500 to 50,000 net acres via acquisitions and organic leasing. Salar departed Inflection in mid-2015 to start a new company as the CEO and received funding by Denham Capital. Salar reviewed assets in the Eagle Ford shale and the Rockies and eventually transitioned to running the Gunnison Energy assets in the Piceance Basin.
