Candidate # NA-3785682434

Sr. Reservoir Engineer

 

                                                                                Summary

Since 1980, worked on a variety of oil, gas and gas-condensate reservoirs, in clastic and carbonate formations. Tasks included drawing development plans for new reservoirs, management of mature assets, and evaluations of prospects. I have used simulation extensively, and come to recognize that models may be of little value, unless they are based on reliable logging, PVT, special core analysis, and transient well test data, plus thorough reservoir characterization. My aim has always been to optimize recovery, reduce costs, and in general, propose pragmatic development, and workover plans. Similarly, regarding evaluations, I have always sought to present objective assessments, based on the available data, and the performance of analog reservoirs.

                                                                              Experience

 

2007- 10/2010. At  the Houston  office  of  BHP-Billiton,  completed  history  matching  the  performance  of  three reservoirs of  the Angostura Field, in Trinidad  and Tobago. Heavy  faulting and  the  need  to  incorporate a pipeline system  to  the combined  model  made  the  project extremely challenging. Angostura has  a STOIIP of  300 mmstb  and  a GIIP of 900 bscf.

Marathon Oil 1984-2007

1998-2007. At the Lafayette, and Houston offices of Marathon Oil Company, worked on the following projects:

-NC-98 Reservoir in Libya. Geology: Clastics. Reservoir fluid: Wet gas and volatile oil. GIIP: 3.0tscf.  STOOIP: 1.0 billion barrels. Responsibilities: Liaising with laboratories to set up PVT and SCAL experiments, evaluation of existing PVT, special core analysis, and well test data, plus drawing alternative development plans involving different plateau rates, for reservoir pressure blow down, and gas recycling scenarios.

-Faregh Reservoir in Libya. Geology: Clastics. Reservoir fluids: Oil and wet gas. GIIP: 7.0tscf STOIIP: 1.5 mmstbo. Responsibilities: Well test analyses, and evaluation of different development scenarios using the ECLIPSE 200, and ECLIPSE  300 software.

-Defa, and Darra-Joffra reservoirs in Libya. Geology: Clastics. Reservoir fluids: Oil and  gas. Defa STOIIP: 9.0 mmstbo. Darra-Joffra STOOIP: 4.5 mmstbo, GIIP: 1.8 tscf. I was a member of a joint Marathon-ConocoPhillips-Hess team, whose tasks were planning the re-development of the said reservoirs. 

-Petronius  in the Gulf of Mexico. Geology: Unconsolidated sandstone. Reservoir fluids: Oil and gascap gas. STOIIP: 550 mmstbo. Responsibilities: Revision of  the development plan. Evaluation of the field data, and history matching led to modifications that increased the oil rate by 12000 stbo/d.         

-Camden Hills in the Gulf of Mexico. Geology: Unconsolidated sandstone. Reservoir fluid: Dry gas. GIIP: 170 bscf. Responsibilities: Drawing of a development plan, and designing the pipeline to gas gathering center. 

-Ewing Bank in the Gulf of Mexico. Geology: Unconsolidated clastics. Reservoir fluid: Undersaturated oil. STOIIP: 350mmstb. Responsibilities: History matching the performance of the reservoir during the years 1994 – 1999. Modeling led to radical revision of the drilling and recompletion programs

-South Pass C and D Reservoirs in the Gulf of Mexico. Geology: Sandstone. Reservoir fluids: Saturated oil and gas. Hydrocarbon initially in place: 85mmstbo and 285bscf. Two models were built and history matched. Results were used to obtain permission from the MMS to blow down the said reservoirs.

1987-1998. At the Production Technology Center of Marathon Oil Company, in Littleton Colorado, I worked on the following projects:

-Lagunillas, Intercampo, Dacion  and Mata-Acema Reservoirs in Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela. Geology: Sandstone. Reservoir fluid: Oil of gravity in the range 15-32 degrees API. Combined oil initially in place: 7.0bstb. As a member of a multidisciplinary group, my responsibility was to assess the future potential of these reservoirs. This was accomplished through decline curve analyses, and  simulation of the heavy oil reservoirs.

-Oyster Reservoir in the Gulf of Mexico. Geology: Unconsolidated sandstone. Reservoir fluid: Undersaturated oil. STOIIP: 40mmstb. Responsibilities: Drawing of a development plan of this reservoir.

-North Brae Reservoir in the British Sector of the North Sea. Geology: Sandstone and conglomerate. Reservoir  fluid: Gas condensate. GIIP: 1.2tscf.  Development plan based on gas recycling, partial blowdown and final blowdown. Responsibilities: History matching the performance of the reservoir from 1988 through 1996, using ECLIPSE 300. Through prediction runs, I was able to demonstrate that condensate recovery could be improved by replacing crestal with peripheral gas injection, in the top layers of the reservoir.

-East Brae Reservoir in the British Sector of the North Sea. Geology: Sandstone and conglomerate. Reservoir fluid: Gas condensate. GIIP: 2.1tscf. The development plan of this reservoir was similar to that of North Brae.  Responsibilities: Reverse decline in condensate production After history matching the reservoir model, a  re-completion plan was devised, that increased the condensate rate by 13000 bcpd.

-South Brae Reservoir in the British Sector of the North Sea. Geology: Sandstone and conglomerate. Reservoir fluid: Undersaturated oil. STOIIP: 760mmstb. Responsibilities: Construction and history matching a model with an extended grid that included the nearby Miller, East Miller and Central Brae reservoirs which were in communication with South Brae. 

 Additional modeling work involved evaluation of a pilot water-alternating-gas scheme (WAG). To this end the model was modified to include the Todd and Longstaff approximation, and additional information from whole core WAG floods. Swollen oil PVT input had been incorporated during history matching. Main conclusion was that WAG could be significantly more effective than straight forward water injection.  

-East Cameron Reservoir in the Gulf of Mexico. Geology: Clastics. Reservoir fluid: Undersaturated oil. STOIIP: 20mmstb. Using a history matched model, I was able to show that water injection could be discontinued without reducing recovery.

-Yates Reservoir in Texas. Geology: Carbonates. Reservoir fluid: Saturated oil. STOIIP: 4.0bstb. Reservoir  plan: Production from oil leg fractures, supported  by  crestal  carbon dioxide, and  nitrogen injection, plus aquifer influx. Responsibilities: History  matching the field performance of the period 1927 – 1995 using the  dual porosity-dual permeability option of ECLIPSE 200. Matching  parameters  were the pressure data,  the depths of the gas-oil, and oil-water contacts as functions of time, and log derived gas-cap oil saturation data. Modeling confirmed  that production was maintained through drainage of oil trapped, in the gascap matrix blocks. Prediction runs showed that increased gas injection accelerated drainage, and capacity was increased accordingly.

-Indian Basin Reservoir in New Mexico. Geology: Carbonates. Reservoir fluid: Wet gas. GIIP: 2.0 tscf. Responsibilities: Build and history match a model with data of the period 1962-1989, to assess the potential of horizontal wells, and gas compression requirements.

-Sand Dunes Reservoir in Wyoming. Geology: Clastics. Reservoir fluid: Undersaturated oil. STOIIP: 2.0mmstb. Responsibilities: Design a development scenario based on gas injection at minimum miscibility pressure.

-Kakap-KH7 Reservoir in Indonesia. Geology: Clastics. Reservoir fluid: Undersaturated oil. STOIIP: 97mmstb. Responsibilities: STOIIP determination, from material balance calculations, and modeling.

-Alba Reservoir in the British Sector of the North Sea. . Geology: Clastics. Reservoir fluid: Undersaturated oil. STOIIP: 1.2bstb. Responsibilities: Drawing a development plan.

-McArthur River Project. –G Zone and West Foreland Reservoirs in Alaska. Geology: Clastics. Reservoir fluid: Undersaturated oil. STOIIP: 300mmstb. Responsibilities: Comprehensive workover plan through modeling.

In addition to the aforesaid, I also worked on projects of shorter duration such as: transient analyses; modeling of hydraulically fractured, conventional, and horizontal wells; proposals for workovers and/or new well locations for various projects; and  recommendations for well tests and logging surveys. 

 

1984-1987. At the Aberdeen , and London offices of Marathon Oil UK Limited, I worked on the following projects:

 

-North Brae Reservoir in the British Sector of the North Sea. Geology: Sandstone and conglomerate. Reservoir fluid: Gas condensate. GIIP: 1.2tscf. Responsibilities: Creating a development plan based on gas recycling, partial  blowdown and final blowdown of the reservoir, using ECLIPSE 300.

-South Brae Reservoir in the British Sector of the North Sea. Geology: Sandstone and conglomerate. Reservoir fluid:  Undersaturated oil. STOIIP: 760mmstb. Responsibilities: Build a history matched reservoir model, as dictated by the UK Department of Energy.

-Logging and testing of Marathon wells in the North Sea. These included PLT, RFT, pressure build-up and fall-off surveys, plus collection of PVT samples. Duties involved writing procedures, supervision of field work and analyses of the acquired data.

1979-1984. At the Glasgow office of  Britoil Plc, I worked on the following projects:

-Ninian Field in the British Sector of the North Sea. Geology: Clastics. Reservoir fluid: Undersaturated oil. STOIIP: 2.6bstb. Responsibilities: Built and history match a model with data of the period 1978-1983; use model to evaluate proposals, for further development, put forward by the operator, Chevron Petroleum UK Ltd; represent Britoil at reservoir engineering meetings with partners and approve AFE’s.

Professional Experience

Major Energy Corporation                                                                         2005-2010
Senior Reservoir Engineering Advisor – Houston, Texas

Reservoir engineering for development in Brazil.

¨     Ongoing reservoir management for the reservoir in the  field in Brazil.  Worked with a team of geoscientists, drillers, and completion engineers to optimize reservoir development.  Successfully proposed water injection location based on modeling work to delay water breakthrough while still providing needed pressure support to increase production.   Recommendations have contributed to the reservoir performing significantly beyond expectations.

¨     Developed a simulation model for the carbonate reservoir in the field.   One of the main issues was the natural fracture system, which was implemented both in a Dual Permeability/Dual Porosity mode and with an enhanced Single Porosity representation.  The model is currently in the history matching phase, but has reached a level where it has been applied to locate two infill wells to be drilled  in 2010.

¨     Evaluation of (Equatorial Guinea) light oil reservoirs for company working with major energy firm, the operator of the field.   Prime focus was on operating issues, such as well locations and gas/water injection, and developing strategies for increased ultimate recovery.  Constructed three Eclipse reservoir models as a tool for discussions with the operator.   Along with other members of the team, influenced partner to modify the project development with positive results for wells.

¨     Evaluation of property in Equatorial Guinea.   Compositional and economical analyses carried out which influenced the operator in the ongoing appraisal of the field.

¨     Appraised and proposed well development plan for the Green Sand in Equatorial Guinea, which was an important component to the block being declared commercial.

¨     Mentored three summer interns, all of whom selected employment at company.  Assisted and mentored new reservoir engineers from other departments in their studies.

¨     Applications were implemented using primarily the Eclipse simulator with support from Prosper, MBAL, and PVTSIM software.

Large Energy Engineering Firm                        2000-2004
Reservoir Engineering Consultant –  Texas

¨     Completed an appraisal of a marginal oil field in Nigeria for an Energy firm.  Lead role on a team with a seismologist, a petrophysics expert, and a production engineer to evaluate a property with three well completions and 3-D seismic data.  Appraisal using CMG simulation software led to a proposed development plan, which was estimated to lead to production of 18 million barrels as compared to 0.5 million that was actually produced from the three original wells.

¨     Completed analysis of NGL production for the reservoir (gas condensate) for the energy operator.  Updated one previous model and generated a scoping model for a new reservoir. Three separate reservoir simulation models were then run under one surface control to provide compositional profiles from the produced gas stream.  A detailed compositional history match was carried out on each of the three reservoirs to validate the predictions.  The results were used to evaluate whether an upgrade in processing surface facilities would be necessary in order to eliminate the gas flare.  The model also provided an improved estimate of future NGL production.

¨     Completed update of study for Energy Corporation.  With a lead role on a team of geoscientists and engineers, updated previous models with information from 146 new well perforations.  Carried out analysis of well hydraulics to identify limiting factors on production.  Revised fluid characterization for the reservoir which helped explain declining reservoir performance.  Submitted new findings to a simulation model, which now achieved a significantly improved history match with the new data, and completed an evaluation of future development for the field.  The uplift in recovery (400 million barrels), along with the uplift from nearby reservoirs, justified the funding of the East Area project, an extensive investment (over $1 billion) in gas injection and surface facilities.

¨     Completed an EOS/1-D compositional scoping analysis using the CMG simulation software for a Joint Operating Company in Vietnam.  After guiding the selection of PVT experiments at Core Labs, an EOS model was developed which closely matched the experimental data.  The EOS model was then applied in a scoping simulation to evaluate the effectiveness of dry gas injection at different pressures, recycled gas injection, water injection, and depletion.  The work allowed development planning while an appraisal/exploration program was being carried out.

¨     Completed an evaluation of a gas storage reservoir in Oregon to assist the land owners in obtaining a fair market rental from the gas storage operator.  The storage capacity and deliverability was first evaluated by carrying out a history match of pressure, water-contact advance, and water production.  This information was then applied in a proprietary program to evaluate the fair economic value.

¨     Consulted for Large Energy Operator in the Middle East on a relatively thin oil rim (100 feet), volatile oil with a large, rich gas condensate zone.  Proposed a relocation of the wells to develop the oil rim first.  This prognosis was then verified in a reservoir simulation model.  The revision led to an estimated increase of 75 million barrels in oil recovery, 12 fewer wells drilled, and a deferment of gas compression, all of which significantly improved the project’s economics.

¨     Consulted/assisted on several ongoing engineering projects.  Work contributed to project approvals for(Intermediate and Deep) water injection, and to the (volatile oil depletion) and (gas/water injection) developments.

¨     Provided engineering software support for fields, which included the North Field in the Middle East and several Nigerian reservoirs.

–     Made modifications to the code to meet specific field requirements.

–     Provided the support necessary to bring the simulation studies to a successful conclusion.

¨     Consulted for the Major oil company in Russia.  Served in a mentoring role with several Russian engineers using the Eclipse simulator in developing a large model for the Luginesk field.  Purpose of the study was to modify the reservoir strategy of water injection in a field with a large primary gas cap.

¨     Managed a small engineering consulting firm, which entailed the handling of tax issues, unemployment, payroll, accounting, invoicing, and marketing.

Large Energy Corporation

Exploration and Producing Technology Co.                                                     1989-2000

Reservoir Engineering Consultant –  Texas

¨     Consulted as reservoir engineering/simulation expert on major reservoir studies during the period 1990-99.  Guided the construction of models and consulted on interpretation of results.  Work contributed to major project revisions, which significantly reduced well and surface facilities costs, and in one case, added 200 million barrels of reserves.

¨     Served as team lead on maintenance and support team of proprietary simulation software.  Made significant contributions to program capabilities to meet company’s modeling needs in the field, and provided user support.  Company’s simulation software and expertise had been effectively applied on over 50 of its major oil and gas assets worldwide.

¨     Consulted as reservoir engineer on non-simulation projects.  Frequently reviewed work and conclusions presented by company partners which lessened company’s risk in multi-million dollar projects.

¨     Designed and delivered regular reservoir simulation courses at company’s affiliate sites.  Courses always received high ratings by the participants.  In addition, trained over sixty engineers one-on-one in simulation technology.

¨     Developed part of the code and mathematical algorithms used in properitary software.

Internationl Energy Corporation – German Division                                             1985-1989

Staff Reservoir Engineer – Germany

¨     Provided engineering expertise and documentation for company’s case in an equity dispute that was eventually resolved with company’s gaining its previously estimated share (90%) of the reserves.

¨     Conducted reservoir engineering studies to help determine future development of oil and gas fields.  Applied classical reservoir engineering, well test technology, and simulation techniques that contributed to one of company’s most profitable affiliates.

Major Energy Research and Development Corp.                                                                       1981-1985

Research Engineer – Texas

¨     Created two-dimensional chemical flooding/polymer simulator using the finite element method.  This simulator was applied in several research projects.

RESERVOIR EVALUATIONS PERFORMED

¨     Taiwan TCS Gas Storage: Led a team of engineers to convert a 1.3 Tscf gas-producing field to gas storage.  Application of 13 horizontal and 6 deviated wells for 660 tons/hour up to 1500 tons/hour deliverability.  Results: Determined cushion gas requirements and the number and locations of new wells for each deliverability scenario.  The analysis accounted for an active aquifer.

¨     Qatar North Field: Lean gas condensate, 10-30 Tscf in different project areas, 15 wells initially in project area, over 150 wells in total field, compositional model, 6-10 components.  Results: project design to meet deliverability for gas-sales contracts, minimize H2S production to delay $600 million investment by several years, predict condensate recovery given different field development scenarios.

¨     Indonesia Arun Field: Gas condensate (78 barrels/MMscf), 20 Tscf in place, 100 wells, compositional model, 9 components, surface facilities model coupled to the reservoir.  Results: matched pressure, CGR, water vapor, CO2, and stabilized condensate over 25 years of history, model used to optimize surface facilities and reduce expenditures by $100 million.

¨     Nigeria Asabo and Isobo Fields: Light oil, 660  and 415 million barrels, black oil model.  Results: pressures, GOR and water cut matched over 30-year production history.  Study showed a 15-20% increase in recovery using gas injection, which has been recently planned for both fields.
