+58-412******* -


Senior Reservoir Engineer with 10 years of experience in reservoir characterization and building of reservoir simulation models. Quality-focused engineer with a history of working well in fast-paced challenging and team- oriented environment.


Skilled at conventional reservoir engineering techniques including reservoir characterization, volumetric analysis, material balance, reservoir fluid phase behavior, decline-curve, well test, PVT, special core analysis, sold deposition and integrated reservoir studies.

Experienced with modeling, numerical simulation, reservoir performance analysis, optimization of fields, development planning, economic evaluation, forecast production and reserve estimation.

Strong Petrel, ECLIPSE BlackOil, ECLIPSE Compositional, FrontSim, SCAL, and PVTi experience.

Experience in reservoir simulators such as OpenFlow of Beicip-Franlab and T-Navigator of RFD.

User of PipeSim and Avocet of Schlumberger


2011 - Present Reservoir Engineer Specialist in Reservoir Simulation. PDVSA. Venezuela.

Activities: Dynamic characterization of oil reservoirs. Built pressure analytic models. Mentor to young engineers. Built and historic match of reservoir simulation models. Evaluating of secondary and tertiary oil recovery process. Evaluating and definition of new drainage points. Migration of reservoir models from Petrel to T-Navigator.

Success for the company: Reservoir simulation models built using PETREL Reservoir Engineering. Pressure model for an old reservoir. New procedure for ranking geostatistical realizations. New rock-fluid model with two different kind of rocks. Characterization of a fluid column of 13000 feet. Thermodynamic model and calibration of equations of state. New developments strategies for condensate gas and oil reservoirs.

2009 - 2010 Reservoir Engineer. PDVSA. Venezuela.

Activities: Dynamic characterization of heavy oil reservoirs. Updated reservoir simulation models. Built pressure analytic models.

Success for the company: New fluid distribution for a field with five reservoir. New database of pressure information of wells (DST, RFT, Build Up, BHP) for the a new oil field. 2007 - 2009 Reservoir Engineer. PDVSA. Venezuela.

Activities: Defined new portfolios of wells. Updated reservoir simulation models. Dynamic characterization of gas condensate and light oil reservoirs.

Success for the company: New development strategy for two different fields ranking points of drainage using the net present value. Evaluated the fluid model of one reservoir of gas condensate and light oil using logs and production test. Infill study for a condensate gas and oil reservoir. 2006 - 2007 Reservoir Engineer Internship. PDVSA. Venezuela. Activity: Evaluated the impact of the vertical resolution of a simulation model in waterflooding, gas injection and WAG processes.
