Edgar Marquez Acosta


Dedicated combined and seasoned Petroleum Engineer with over 18 years experienced operating and optimizing both high volume as well as marginal heavy, mid and light crude oils, tight gas and high water cut wells. Capable of analyzing problem wells and developing work over plans for both marginal and high volume oil and gas wells. It also includes the Custody Transfer metering for Oil & Gas Industry. Furthermore, knowledge in Process Engineering Gas Plant Treatment and Cryogenic from 100 – 350 MMSCFD located at Tarija, Bolivia and Santa Barbara (Monagas, Venezuela). Likewise, The Crude Oil production for Heavy-Mid and light clusters composed up 25 oil wells average 3,200 ft of depth at reservoir pressure 1,600 psi at Venezuela (Monagas, Anzoategui and Sucre states) on a daily basis production 5,700 bbl/d per cluster for a total 6 clusters during 5 years. Thus, it also includes Downstream experience in Refining mainly in one of the largest Refineries in the world, CRP complex located at Venezuela whose optimization for enhancing the production in the FCC unit, Atmospheric and Vacuum Distillation Tower increased by 15% the production of Distillates, Fuel Oils and BTX, Marketing and Sales of hydrocarbon products and Logistics which includes: Intermodal Transportation (Truck, Rail, Belt conveyor, Shipping), Inventory Control onshore warehouse facilities, gas and mid-distillates refining scheduler. Ability to mentor and coach young engineers.
