Paul Carlisle – Chief Operating Officer / Director

COO / Director – Cardinal Energy Group, Inc (Public Company Symbol – CEGX)
President / Founder – EOI Eagle Operating Inc.
President / Founder – Carlisle USA Energy Company Inc.
Senior Vice President – Thompson Exploration
Vice President – North Texas Exploration
Senior Developer – Austin Tetra (Purchased by Equifax Public Company Symbol – EFX)
Education: The University of North Texas – Bachelor of Business Administration;

In early 2008, Mr. Carlisle, 42, founded Carlisle USA Energy Company. The purpose was to seek out working interest in existing and new drilling ventures with some of the largest operators in the oil and gas industry. Drawing on almost 10 years of experience helping grow several startup oil and gas companies in Texas, Mr. Carlisle wanted to put his skills to work for the public. He sought out acreage and working interest with BP American, Apache Corporation and XTO Energy to name a few, allowing his partners an opportunity to participate with major operators directly in their projects.

After almost 5 years of growing Carlisle USA Energy Mr. Carlisle opened EOI Eagle Operating to capitalize on the ferocious appetite for oil in early 2012. With a strong understanding of AFE’s, Joint Operating Agreements and land man work. EOI secured contracts from local oil and gas companies in the Dallas, Fort Worth area. EOI can turn key entire projects from prospecting and obtaining leases through the planning and drilling phases and finally the completion and day to day operations. EOI owned and operated its own drilling rig in the early years and to this day still owns and operates several service rigs along with all the necessary equipment to service almost any shallow well within a 150-mile radius of its yard. We expect that, following the acquisition of the Assets acquired from EOI by the Company, Mr. Carlisle will cause EOI to cease its independent operations.

Mr. Carlisle holds a BBA from The University Of North Texas in Decision Sciences with a focus on Statistical Analysis in Data Mining and Data Warehousing.
