Personal Details

About me

I have a petroleum engineering Bachelor’s degree with 7 years oil field experience. I started my career in fracturing operations as Service Supervisor for 2 years within Halliburton Energy Services. I joined Schlumberger to be able to start my fracturing engineering career where I had the necessary knowledge for designing, executing and evaluating treatments in sandstone formation “high/mid/low temperature, high/low perm, Deep/shallow wells, vertical, oil/tight gas”; shale plays using slick water and hybrid fracturing fluid systems, Schlumberger technology “HiWAY”. As a fracturing engineer within Halliburton Energy Services and in addition to the regular duties, I was part of the team who implemented the “ConductorSM Frac” technology, in terms of designing using data that belongs to a given well or an offset well as well as executing the treatment on location. I was part of the solution team who optimized a fracturing design to re-fracturing a complex tight formation in Algeria. I have a relevant experience in fracturing fluid rheology and lab testing for both Halliburton and Schlumberger service companies as this was part of my duties on creating laboratory requests, reviewing the results and supervising the laboratory technician in the district laboratory and on location. Recently, I have been in charge on exploration fields fracturing projects. As a project manager and site coordinator, I was in charge of collaboration of the work between: Fracturing, Coiled tubing, Wireline, Slick line and well test department in one hand and the customer in the other hand.
