Maxim would be excited and honoured to serve on the PESGB Council.

Maxim is a development geologist having worked in services and integrated energy companies, most recently with Sasol in London. He has obtained degrees in Reservoir Engineering, Petroleum Geoscience and Energy Management.

Maxim regularly attends consistently high quality PESGB events including Evening Lectures, YP seminars and Machine Learning SIG meetings. He values our professional organization’s membership and enjoys volunteering. His previous experience includes roles with the Geological Society of London and AAPG.

Maxim cares passionately about the success of PESGB and aims to support the Society’s members. He is keen on providing relevant input and commitment to Special Interest Groups and community activities.


“Max is a mid-career geoscientist whom I have known since he was active with the PESGB YP group. Many members will know Max already, as he is always enthusiastically engaged with the programme of PESGB and other industry events around the calendar. When he discussed standing for the position of Outreach Officer with me I was delighted to wholeheartedly support and encourage his application. He is exactly the sort of enthusiastic and engaged geoscientist we need to drive the PESGB forward in these challenging times. Please do remember Max Kotenev’s name when voting in the PESGB Council Elections.”
