[OTCBB:ESSE], a technology company focused on the development of domestic, inland oil resources, today announced the appointment of a key addition to its senior management team. Michael D.

“I have had the pleasure of working as a consultant on a key ESSI project for several months and am extremely excited to help advance the company’s technologies that have the potential to promote environmentally-sound domestic oil production and national security,” said Lockhart.
Lockhart has 28 years of experience as a senior analyst and research scientist in biosurveillance and information analysis, environmental engineering, synthetic organic and analytical chemistry fields, applied optical physics, and in the defense industry.
Lockhart has provided environmental and occupational health consulting services for many local, state, federal, and private agencies and industries – many of those services focused on environmental compliance and site analysis, environmental evaluations, indoor air quality assessments, and EPA and OSHA industrial training.
