About

Brock Engineering, LLC was formed in 1997 by Timothy J. Brock, PE to provide professional engineering consulting services to the energy industry.

In 2016, Brock Engineering began offering a course in Underground Gas Storage.  This Underground Gas Storage Training is similar to, but expanded from the Katz school in the 1980’s and the Katz and Elenbaas school in the 1990’s.  To date (through 2021), Brock Engineering has held numerous 3-day schools for engineers and geologists and have expanded the slate to include a 1-1/2 day school in underground gas storage training for field supervisors and field operators, which have been offered for industry at large as well as on-site for individual companies across the US.  Additionally, a one-day school in risk management has been developed.

In 2020, Brock Engineering released a computer-based version of their Gas Storage School for Field Supervisors and Operators.  Development of additional training schools is underway.

Prior to my retirement at the end of 2021, I had worked for major and independent oil and gas companies, gas storage companies, oil and gas investment firms, banks, royalty owners and others who hold interests in energy-related assets or require evaluations. However, since January of 2022, my scope of services is limited solely to professional training and development.
