Born and raised in a small remote village in Central Vietnam where electricity was not available till 1998, Tien deeply understands the importance of affordable and reliable energy. With 13 years of experience in the oil and gas industry, Tien has a proven track record in safety, efficiency, sustainability and cost saving. She is passionate about optimization, continuous improvement and has a "can do" attitude. Safety is Tien's first priority. One of her most impactful contributions to the industry is the frac geometry control technique which eliminated H2S production and reduced water cut significantly. This technique has proven successful on three different projects in 2016, 2019 and 2022 in the Williston basin. Tien believes the application can be expanded to other basins where excessive water production and negative parent-child well interaction are the challenges. InDZone Consulting LLC is established with the purpose to share the knowledge and experience to enable operators across the world to accelerate energy production safely and cost effectively.
Prior to founding InDZone, Tien developed her skills and knowledge from both E&P and service companies. At Chord Energy (previously Whiting Petroleum), she served as Completions Advisor and Category Manager. Her leadership and strong technical expertise had saved the company millions of dollars through implementing innovative industry practices, new technologies, and leveraging strong partnerships with key vendors.
Prior to Whiting, Tien built an exciting 8-year experience with SLB where she obtained a strong foundation in operations and completions technical knowledge. She supervised crews to execute a variety of stimulation jobs in multiple basins. Tien also served as local champion for new technologies deployment. As a sales account manager, Tien managed a portfolio of 32 accounts which she built trusted relationships and provided technical solutions to improve well performance and operational efficiency. She conducted frac modelling for over 400 frac stages in the Jonah field, WY. She also optimized completions design for a Bakken operator in a very challenging reservoir to reduce water cut by 15% and eliminate H2S production. Spending 4 years as field engineer has helped Tien to develop a strong understanding toward field operations and personnel. The combination of strong technical knowledge, operational experience and empathetic traits drives successes in Tien's technical designs, project management and vendor management.
Outside work, Tien enjoys spending quality time with her family doing outdoor activities. She also loves volunteering activities to give back to the community. Currently, Tien serves as a board member for Colorado Women in Oil and Gas Association (WOGA) which is a non-profit organization with the mission to encourage and empower the next generation of women leaders.
