Reagan (R.T.) Dukes - Insight into US Conventionals

Research Director - US Lower 48 Upstream Research

Wood Mackenzie


R.T. is widely recognized as a global leader in US unconventional oil and gas. Mr. Dukes advises companies at the executive and board level, as well as being a regular speaker at international industry conferences. He's a media favorite that you'll find quoted in various print and broadcast media outlets. R.T. began his career covering the Barnett Shale as horizontal drilling took off and later managed Wood Mackenzie's Rockies research as Bakken Shale development exploded. His roots in East Texas mean the Haynesville Shale is close to home. By design or maybe happenstance, he has been at the forefront of almost every shale story. He authored research highlighting the potential of tight oil years before US production surged. He has spent most of his career in the weeds of unconventionals and is leaned on for evaluating the impact to local and global markets. He is a recognized thought leader and is a contributor to many US and macro-market publications at Wood Mackenzie. At the firm, he has worked in various research and consulting roles and contributed to valuation and due- diligence work that accounts for billions in transactions. Mr. Dukes is a native Texan and calls Houston home. More importantly, he is a proud husband and father. He spends most evenings and weekends as a youth sports coach. He graduated Cum Laude from Texas A&M University with a bachelors degree in accounting and a masters degree in finance. He currently serves on the Former Student Advisory Board for the Professional Program in Accounting.
