John F. Bookout, Jr.

John F. Bookout, Jr. pledged his career and the future of Shell to deepwater oil and gas development. He began as a geologist and was a pioneer in understanding the potential of oil and gas reserves especially in the Gulf of Mexico. In 1967 as exploration manager for Shell, he aggressively led their acquiring a leading position in offshore leases, which proved fortuitous. Later, as president of Shell Oil US, he provided the direction to develop the geologic and mechanical technology required to lead the industry into oil and natural gas exploration and development in waters deeper than 1,000 feet.
