Mr. James Bibee graduated from University of Tennessee with a degree in Geology in 1950, and immediately went to work for Gulf. After spending a couple of years with another company in Colorado, Gulf hired him again in 1956 to work offshore at their New Orleans office. He worked on the 1970 and 1972 lease sales at the time when bright spots became an indicator of reserves, and due to his success became head of E/P for Gulf. Bibee continued his service for Gulf during its merger with Chevron and retired after 34 years.
