Passion for Learning: Regular influx of ideas and perspectives enables innovative problem solving by effective understanding of problems, their causes and effects

Strong analytical and problem-solving skills developed through team based Internship & Industrial projects

Solid communication skills with significant technical report writing and public speaking experience

Proven ability to work effectively within a high-volume environment and achieve project timelines WORK EXPERIENCE:

Research Assistant Sept 2016 – Dec 2017

University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

A simulation study of Enhanced Gas Recovery from Unconventional resources (CBM, Shale and Tight Gas) Teaching Assistant May 2017 – Aug 2017

University of Calgary

Fluid Mechanics - Graduate course

Teaching Assistant Jan 2017 – Apr 2017

University of Calgary

Advanced Reservoir Engineering- Graduate course

Senior Petroleum Engineer (Exploration and Production) July 2014 – Aug 2016 GAIL (India) Limited, Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India

Worked closely with the Geo-Science team members in reservoir evaluation and economic estimations in the early stages of exploration activities in the Hydrocarbon Blocks.

Involved in new wells drilling projects in one of the company owned onshore filed CB-ONN-2010/11 (Cambay Basin, India) with carrying jobs including well designing, well data collection, and evaluating it for future predictions and optimization.

Production Well testing analysis for the existing producing wells using KAPPA software and preparing reports on reservoir evaluation, performance and providing comments on requirement of stimulation job to improve skin around the well bore.

Apart from engineering work, got indulged myself in asset management which involves preparing the monthly cash calls for all drilling equipment and utilities for approval with finance and Accounting department and economic evaluation of the project.

Preparing presentation materials for Asset meetings internally, with partner companies and vendors. Engineer Intern May 13-June 13

Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, Bombay, India

Performed an intensive study on the vertical and horizontal completion techniques practices in Oil and Gas Industry.

Conducted laboratory studies on Gravel pack designing and screens by sieve analysis.

Played key role in designing and optimizing the well completion before production in one of the onshore filed of ONGC that resulted in successful production of oil with less sand production which ultimately saved the operational cost.

Engineer Intern Dec 12-Jan 13

Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation, Gandhinagar, India

Visited Ingoli and Unawa fields to get more exposure of company's oil & gas operations (mainly well testing)

Analyzed the performance of the old wells in those filed to understand the problem.

Contributed own efforts to analyze the well test data of a new well using KAPPA software by estimating permeability and skin factors.

Played a key role in recommending hydraulic fracturing and well stimulation operations to reduce the skin and improve well productivity.

Engineer Intern June 12-July 12

Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, Assam, India

Visited Assam on land fields of ONGC to get familiar with Industrial Well Stimulation Practices.

Studied the most complex reservoir behavior in these fields whose productivity is quite unpredictable from one well to other which influencing productivity and operational time.

Got opportunity to work in a major project where played a responsible role in conducting laboratory experiments to check the flow behavior of fluid (gas) in the core samples.

Successfully implemented cement squeezing operation in gas leakage points and perforated well to enhance productivity and saved operational cost.

Engineer Intern May 12-June 12

Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, Bombay, India

Got exposure to the basics of well log analysis & Interpretation, seismic data monitoring, processing and interpretation.

Engineer Intern Dec 11-Jan 12

Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, Ahmedabad, India

Visited drilling rigs, surface operations (Gas Gathering System, Effluent Treatment Plants, Gas Collection Station, Desalination Plant, Water Injection Plant, Central Tank Form etc.) at different operational locations of ONGC.

Analyzed drilling components of a rig operations including designing the well path to understand the working procedures of it.

Played a key role in preparing an optimum well designing and its trajectory to reach target which resulted positively by reducing number of days to drill a well from 45 days to 35 days which ultimately saved operational cost.
