About Rebellion’s Leadership

Staci Taruscio

Chief Executive Officer
Staci has a Petroleum Engineering degree from the University of Tulsa and nearly 20 years of experience in field operations, reservoir engineering, and project management roles at oil and gas operating companies across the United States and Canada. She also has a Masters in Business Administration and is a proven leader in the upstream E&P sector of the Oil and Gas Industry having started two (2) private operating companies, both of which were headquartered in Oklahoma. Upon the successful exit of her most recent iteration, she pivoted her expertise to plug and abandonment work with a focus on converting legacy wells from liability to asset. She has spent the last two (2) years working with NGO’s, NPO’s, Operators, Private Investors, and Scientist to uncover hidden value, standardize processes, and develop tech to push focus onto this emerging micro-economy. Having contributed her expertise to both the IIJA and its Federal Guidance as well as the ACR P&A methodology, Staci is ideally suited to follow that work up in her home state of Oklahoma. Staci is a founding board member of Fellow Environmental Partners, a Tulsa based non-profit dedicated to contributing data on which we can have meaningful conversations to this space. She is a firm believer in bringing people together valuing collaboration across specialties as a true energy transition.
