After high school Shane went right into the work force driving semi-trucks for a local farmer. Shortly thereafter he started his own trucking and custom harvesting business. Shane got his start in the oilfield patch as a contract pumper in 1986, while continuing the operations of his trucking business. He ran the Hot Oil Service Company of his father’s for about a year, before turning it over to his older brother. Eventually Shane sold the trucking company and went full-time in the oil field as a contract pumper under his own pumping services business. He worked for several companies including: Anchor Bay, Anschutz Corporation, Dunne Equites, Herman L. Loeb LLC and Red Oak Energy, among others. Through the years he has learned a lot about down hole and above ground operations of all his leases, including the operations of multiple enhanced and secondary recovery projects.
Based out of the Great Bend, KS field office, Shane has been Loeb’s Area Production Supervisor for Mid-Continent operations since July 2011, while also managing a team of company pumpers, contract pumpers and company oil field service personnel / roustabouts, located throughout Kansas and Colorado.
In his personal time he enjoys spending time with his wife, 3 children & 11 grandchildren. Shane also enjoys taking cross country motorcycle trips and car collecting/restoration projects. From 2000-2008 he served on the Cheyenne County School Board the last 4 years as the President.
