Charles Bose_Petroleum engineer



I am a highly skilled Petroleum engineer who graduated with a master degree from the University of Kansas in 2015. I worked as a Reservoir engineer for the Unconventional resources lab, a research wing of the Petroleum engineering department at the University of Kansas (consultant for Oil & Gas operators), USA during my graduate studies and for a year after my graduation until July 2016. I pride myself on my ability to adapt constantly by acquiring new skills as evidenced by the range of engineering projects I completed. I am also a team player with excellent analytical and problem-solving skills and proven ability in meeting project deadlines.


During my previous job, I worked on projects sponsored by operators in Kansas undertaken by the University of Kansas. My duties included Reservoir characterization, log data analysis, DST data analysis, Reserve estimation, Reservoir Modelling & Simulation, Decline Curve analysis, History Matching, economic analysis and Production optimisation. I have authored technical publications and have presented them at different SPE conferences across the country.


Please check my resume for a detailed description my skills, education and experience which makes me a strong candidate.

Professional Experience

Reservoir engineer at the Unconventional Resources Lab, University of Kansas: Sept 2013 – July 2016

Reservoir Characterization, Simulation, History matching & Production forecasting of a production field under BEREXCO LLC to give recommendations

• Interpreted and analysed Well logs, Drill Stem Test data, Production/ Injection data, work over reports and core data to set up a 3D reservoir model of the production unit
• Created a reservoir model to simulate the production from the field using CMG software
• Predicted future production rates based on decline curve analysis of production history
• Performed reservoir analysis, history matching and gave recommendations to improve production rates by analysing water and CO2 injection
Simulated multi-stage fracture propagation (using NSI STIMPLAN) & studied the impact of fracturing fluid rheology on the ultimate production using reservoir simulator CMG

• Studied fracture propagation in the Mississippian Limestone formation based on geomechanical properties and injected fluid property data
• Modelled the impact of the fracture properties and formation damage on reservoir performance during production phase using CMG

Developed a Multi-Phase 3D Reservoir Simulator using MATLAB Program which can accurately simulate the reservoir performance

Intern, Artificial Lift - Oil and Natural Gas Corporation of India (ONGC): Jun-Aug, 2012

Recommended methods to optimise production from wells in Krishna-Godavari basin using Gas lift and Electrical Submersible Pump (ESP), ONGC, Mumbai: Jun-Aug, 2012
