Professional Experience

Major Independent Company, Reservoir Engineer (2008-Present)

  • Provided reservoir engineering technical input required for CO2 field expansion projects in different fields including development of dynamic reservoir simulations (volumetric analysis, material balance, decline curve, PVT Characterization, SCAL, nodal analysis, well testing analysis) for a wide range of reservoir engineering and integrated reservoir problems.

 

  • Provided technical and analytical support to the various groups in the company including:
    • Houston Business Development Group: Contribute to team development proposals, economic evaluation of alternative development plans for prospective fields for acquisition.
    • Midland Eastern Shelf Team: Worked directly with Eastern Shelf Team to define optimum development  scenarios in the CO2 EOR process for several fields in Texas. Designed and developed simulation models to match the field history and predict future performance under various CO2 flood plans. Performed sensitivity analysis to find an optimum economical plan. Conducted material balance analysis using MBAL to find the type and extent of the aquifer.
    • Midland Yates Team: Generated a dual porosity simulation model to investigate mechanism involving in chemical surfactant flooding (wettability alteration). Work closely with Yates team to design and identify two pilots for surfactant flooding for optimum EOR scenario. Simulation study of feasibility of CO2 huff n puff EOR process for west side of the Yates field and perform sensitivity analysis to find optimum economic plan.
    • Houston Resource Group: provided technical support by writing a computer program to predict of CO2 well bottom hole pressure for McElmo Dome field.

                       

Same Company, Reservoir Engineer Intern (Summer 2008)

  • Performed PVT characterization and develop EOS for Claytonville, Katz, and Yates Fields. Achieve better accuracy and reduce simulation time using components relative to previous models. Build a dual porosity simulation model to match the history of Claytonville field data.

 

Tertiary Oil Recovery Project (TORP), University of Kansas

 Graduate Research Assistant (2002-2008)

  • Developed a systematic methodology to improve reservoir modeling by conditioning geostatistical models to well test transient dynamic data: a case study from the CO2 flood pilot area in the Hull-Gurney field, Kansas.

  • Lead investigator of the PVT characterization of the crude oil sample from Hall-Gurney field using laboratory experiments and simulation to generate EOS.
  • Worked in multidisciplinary team to build simulation model of Hall-Gurney field, Kansas. Complete history match of the field data and evaluate alternative development schemes to optimize oil recovery of CO2 flooding.
  • Performed decline curve analysis to predict the performance of production wells in the Arbuckle formation prior to gel-polymer treatment.
  • Investigated various disproportionate permeability reduction (DPR) mechanisms in gel-polymer treatment process and develop a novel method to predict the well performance after treatment using Bayesian network analysis: a case study for gel-polymer treatment in Arbuckle formation.
