Mike Kifer, vice president of acquisitions and reserves for Houston-based EnerVest Ltd., is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Kifer became attracted to the oil and gas industry while completing his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. The “fundamental benefits to society provided by the safe, reliable and affordable energy resources we produce” appealed to him, he said.

A career milestone, he said he’s proud to have reached is the promotion at EnerVest to his current role of vice president of acquisitions and reserves.
