Armand Paradis


Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Armand Paradis is Co-Founder and CEO of ComboCurve, the fastest growing technology platform in energy. He leads reservoir engineers, programmers, and data scientists building breakthrough technologies to evaluate and improve well performance, economics, and emissions. ComboCurve is one of the most successful energy startups with over 270 of the largest players in the industry adopting its workflows in just 3 years. The company raised the largest round of Series B financing ever seen in energy. In 2010, Armand was recruited from the University of Louisiana to work as a Senior Reservoir Engineer for Metairie Energy in Lafayette. After nearly five years at Metairie, he joined Statoil's Houston office to work on major lower 48 unconventional resource plays. Working for both major and small independent operators taught him the complex challenges energy companies face translating data into decisions. Most significantly, he learned the pain of having to use a half dozen applications over several days to find one answer. He lived the pain and built the solution in a single SaaS platform. Armand holds a Master's and Bachelor's degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Louisiana and Sharif University of Technology. He serves as the sponsorship chairman for the SPE Gulf Coast Section Innovate Group. In 2022, he was honored as one of Hart Energy's Forty Under 40. Thanks to his leadership, ComboCurve has won several awards, such as Disruptive Technology of the Year two years running, along with Innovation of the Year, Best & Brightest in Houston, and Best & Brightest in the Nation in 2022.
