Having about 10 years of experience as a reservoir engineer, working mainly from basic reservoir studies to dynamic modeling. Experience is more related to FDP/MDP preparation, validation, and execution which were involved in oil/gas field studies and development planning/implementation (in Sandstone and Carbonate reservoirs). My ultimate objective with respect to my precise upstream work experience and educational background is to find engineer position to contribute positively and updated my knowledge.
