Innovative Thinkers: Don Conkle - Proppant Innovation at Motocross Speed

World Oil, July 2015

As a teenager growing up in southeastern Ohio, Don Conkle had a passion for speed. Don raced motocross throughout the U.S., secured a sponsorship with Suzuki, and was the national amateur champion in 1979. A severe ankle injury, unfortunately, ended Don's racing career before turning professional.

While the world of motocross lost a racing champion, the oil and gas industry gained a petroleum engineer with a passion for fast technology development. As VP of Marketing & Sales for CARBO, Conkle is one of the proppant technology gurus, who is helping operators improve production and increase recoverable reserves.
