Louis Dorfman Jr.

Director of Oil and Gas Charter Sales

Director of Status Jet Oil and Gas Division, is the third generation in his family to be involved in the oil and gas exploration industry.  He was President of Dorfman Production Company, a 95-year old family-owned business for 15 years.  This was Mr. Dorfman’s first high-profile leadership position in this industry for which he was responsible for directing significant oil and gas exploration and production operations, to include drilling in excess of 250 wells and operating approximately 480 wells.  Throughout his career, he has been involved in acquisitions and divestitures of more than $600 million of oil and gas properties. After leaving the family business, Louis Dorfman Jr. became executive vice president of ASI, a public company based in San Antonio, Texas (NASDAQ  Symbol ANLT).  ASI benefited tremendously from Mr. Dorfman’s industry expertise as reflected by the numerous successful drilling prospects and projects undertaken by ASI for which he was the catalyst.  Two acquisitions became field discoveries which, in and of itself, constitutes a noteworthy career highlight.
