BIOGRAPHY

George Mitchell was born in United States. The father of natural gas shale drilling, George Mitchell was the first to use hydraulic fracking to crack open the Barnett shale field in Texas. He opened the door to development of shales worldwide. In 2002 Mitchell sold his company, Mitchell Energy & Development, for $3.5 billion to Devon Energy, where he remains the biggest shareholder. He spearheaded development of the Woodlands, a huge master-planned community north of Houston. He has completed $24 million in renovations of his three hotels in hometown of Galveston, damaged when Hurricane Ike slammed ashore in 2008. A big giver, he has directed $30 million to the construction of the Giant Magellan telescope, a ground-based replacement for the Hubble.
