Awards, Memberships & Other Activities
From January 2016
Head of Petroleum Exploration Engineering Department, Sudan University of Science
& Technology, College of Petroleum Engineering & Technology. From July 2013 –December 2014
A Reservoir Engineer (Grade-9) at Schlumberger Overseas S.A. in Khartoum-Sudan, responsible for real-time monitoring and interpretation of wireline formation testing. Responsibilities:
As a Data Services (DS) reservoir engineer in KRT-SUG, I supported WL-MDT jobs for operating companies by: Real-time monitoring, processing and interpreting Modular Dynamic Formation Testing (MDT) jobs, Formation Pressure acquisition QAQC, and Monitoring sampling with LFA.
I was involved in an investigational study of the performance of MDT in low-mobility formations and key challenges faced for one of the main clients in Sudan following abnormal experience in one of their wells. I have also conducted an Investigation Study of the Performance of XpressPressure Tool (XPT) and Modular formation Dynamic Tester
(MDT): Case study in three wells of a client
