Technical Work Experience

2012 – Now Petroleum/Reservoir Engineer, Sahara Oil and Gas (SOG), Cairo, Egypt Reservoir Modeling & Simulation

Constructed six 3D simulation studies (Static & Dynamic Models), four in the Egyptian Western Desert “West Qarun, Abrar, Ganna, and Sidra Oil Fields” in addition to two simulation studies in Gulf of Suez “North July and SW Gabel Elzait Oil Fields”

Optimized Ferdaus field predication cases to maximize the field’s recovery factor by 30 %

Performed efficiently different prediction scenarios for economical field development plan

Performed QC for reservoir simulation studies by third party, ex: SACHA field in Ecuador

Offered technical guidance for reviewing integrated 3D reservoir simulation studies

Introduced RQI/FZI concept for Reservoir Characterization Studies

Participating in re-evaluating GUPCO mature fields (Block GS-347 Simulation Study) Reservoir Engineering Data Analysis

Performed major Reservoir Engineering data analysis (RFT Analysis, PVT Review and Analysis, Core Data Preparation for Reservoir Simulation, Production Data Analysis…)

Utilized Kappa Saphir software to perform appropriate Pressure Transient Analysis (PTA)

Applied Petroleum Expert (PETEX) software package (MBAL, PROSPER …) for many classical Reservoir Engineering Analysis tasks

Selected and reviewed many Coring programs

Reserve Estimation and Evaluation

Collaborated with RE and PE teams in issuing & updating reserves booking annually

Utilized OFM projects for DCA and ultimate reserve estimation

Provided technical guidance during asset evaluation inside and outside Egypt

Evaluated new operating opportunities, ex: Madhakali Block in India, GASHA in Russia

Preformed Economic Analysis for Field Development Plans using Merak Peep software Operations Management

Witnessed many rig operations (Well lifting & testing, well logging, well stimulation, different well completion type …)

Improved reservoir management activities through supporting the reservoir surveillance team including diagnosing and proposing possible mitigation actions for under-performing wells, recommending target locations for new drilling wells and selecting key candidate wells for new Technology trials.

Prepared and reviewed many financial proposals and outlined scope of work with techno- economic justification.
