Hart Energy recently profiled Houston partner Patrick Johnson as a member of Hart Energy’s 2023 Forty Under 40 class. Here are a few highlights. 

Memorable Professional Experience

“During my time as an in-house lawyer at Exxon Mobil, I worked on a gas project under development in the Black Sea offshore Romania. I frequently visited Bucharest, the capital city of Romania, for project meetings. On one trip, a few of us hopped in a van and traveled a few hours east to the Black Sea coast.…The visit gave me a distinct sense of the sheer scale of the project and the technical challenges involved.” 

Qualities of a Good Leader

“[E]nergy is most certainly a team sport. Success requires input and perspective from a number of different disciplines.”

Why the Oil & Gas Sector Interests Patrick

“In a sense, energy is what makes the world go ’round. There is nothing more important to the successful functioning of our society than being able to meet our energy needs.  As we continue to do so by traditional means and embark on the energy transition, this era in the industry will require patience, creativity, collaboration and foresight.”
