HALLIBURTON Energy Services, Houston, TX 2018 - 2019 Optimization Specialist, Well Placement & Formation Evaluation. Prepared reservoir models to simulate BHA configuration and M/LWD tool responses to optimize drilling BHA configuration. Monitored real-time drilling data and communicated with drilling team (DD, Company Man, and Drilling Engineer) to steer well based on 3D Reservoir models prepared from petro physical and seismic data.
Communicated increased wellbore lateral reservoir contact and added service value through post-well drilling reports.
Employed expertise in Reservoir 3D modelling, Geo-statistics, well planning (Landmark) and formation evaluation or dip picking softwares, LWD tools (Resistivity, Sonic, Gamma, Neutron etc.), survey tools, telemetry tools and BHA or bit vibrations dynamics.
GEOLOG INTERNATIONAL & GEOLOG AMERICAS, Houston, TX / Milan, Italy 2017 - 2018 Drilling Data Engineer, Advance Services Specialist (Surface Logging & Drilling Optimization Services) Interpreted RT drilling parameters (WOB, ROP, SPP, ECD, MSE, Active Flow, Pit volumes) and drilled gases to monitor issues (kicks, losses, drilling break, hole cleaning) for efficient drilling; provided formation logs and maintained data base servers; performed flow simulations (ECD, Torque & Drag, Surge & Swab) and monitored optimal flow conditions.
Gained versatile drilling experience from geothermal projects in Germany, multi-pad oil and gas projects in India and Turkey, horizontal drilling in Texas (Eagle Ford) and Oklahoma (SCOOP / STACK), deep injection wells in Permian.
Established opportunities with several clients in East African region under BDM by exploring developing markets.
Provided several advance drilling optimization and reservoir rock analysis solutions, tailored for client’s requirements: o Interpreted RT data for early kick and mud-loss detection providing optimal drilling practices. o Conducted bit-burn analysis, reducing bit-trip uncertainty, for cost effective use of bit. o Characterized reservoir fluids through thermal extraction and advanced gas chromatography of hydrocarbons, identifying target zones for maximum production profitability of gas and oil. o Monitored RT borehole fractures and borehole stability in high-angle horizontal and extended reach wells, delivering detailed reports on wellbore fractures and hole-cleaning conditions. o Provided wellsite or laboratory TOC, pyrolysis, XRF, XRD for organic source rock and inorganic geochemistry evaluation, for geosteering and for reservoir characterization.
