Senior Reservoir Engineer

Frontier Oil Limited, Lagos Nigeria (March, 2010 till date)

Calculate the STOOIP and GIIP for some reservoirs. Participated in the preparation of FDP for Uquo Gas Field. Participated in the well testing on Uquo-2 well. Reserve estimation and economic evaluation of Uquo field to determine, NPV, Return on Investment, Pay back period, NCR and other economic indicators.

Well Testing Reservoir Engineer

Repsol Exploration Algeria, Red Med Base, Hassi-Messaoud, Algeria (February, 2009 – February, 2010). Implement well testing programs and overseeing Reservoir Engineering operations at the well site in Reggane Gas Fields.

Senior Reservoir Engineer

Schlumberger Global Resources, Data and Consulting Service, Hassi-Messaoud, Algeria (January 2008 –December, 2008) Responsibilities includes preparing pre-processing data (PVT, SCAL, production schedule) of dynamic reservoir modeling of zones 25 of the Hassi-Messaoud Field for integrated reservoir study. Perform different simulation run with ECLIPSE 100. Performing BHP analysis and interpretations of some wells with SAPHIR. Also OFM, and PETREL are some of the application tools that were used to organise production data and review the model respectively to enhance the quality of the asset

Senior Reservoir Engineer

Schlumberger Nigeria Limited, Data and Consulting Services, (June, 2006- December 2007). Build dynamic model using static model of the reservoir in a Stochastic Simulation workflow to model different realizations of the reservoir and history match same. This workflow is achieved with the aid of computation tools like Eclipse and Cougar. Results are usually presented in P10, P50 and P90 probabilistic for all production performance vectors.

Lecturer II, University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria (January 2000- May 2006)

Responsible for Teaching of courses like Computer Applications in Petroleum Engineering, Numerical Reservoir Simulation, Well Testing, Rock and Fluid Properties and Reservoir Engineering. I also take care of other Administrative Responsibilities

Participated in Field Development Plan of Alwyn and Edikan Field with the use of ATHOS and ECLIPSE simulators at the Institut Francais du Petrole (IFP) respectively.

Reservoir Engineer, Laser Engineering Consultants, Rivers State, Nigeria (January 1996- December 1999)

Responsible for the analysis of well test data for Exxon Mobil, Elf and Shell reservoirs and presentations of well test reports.

Computed oil and gas reserve with material balance using OILWAT and GASWAT tool. Participated in the Reservoir Study that involved building of dynamic modeling of a field with WINBOASTsimulator. Determine the optimal gas injection rates for design of pressure maintenance scheme and recommending appropriate infill wells in the study.

Also involved in the organization of short courses for the training of personnels in the oil and gas industry. Some of the short courses include Reservoir Simulation, Basic well log Interpretations, Principles of Bottom Hole Pressure Test and Reservoir Engineering.

Production Technologist Trainee, Shell Petroleum Development Company Nigeria (May 1994 – April, 1995)

Responsible for screening well for intervention to optimize aging well and improve their performance. These usually involve workover, re-completion, selection Through Tubing Candidates
