PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Schlumberger                                                                                                                                  

Geophysicist.                                                                                                                (2005-2016)

Locations: College Station Texas, Houston Texas, Denver Colorado

Planning, processing and interpretation and managing Hydraulic fracture monitoring projects in unconventional plays. Projects assisted clients to have a full picture of the mapped fractures, and in real-time decision-making and effective stimulation.

 

  • Delivered a record high number of Hydraulic fracture monitoring stages projects
  • Developed advanced anisotropic velocity models integrating seismic and acoustic solutions, models reduced event location uncertainty and added revenues
  • Completed hydraulic Re-Frac real time monitoring campaigns that improved EUR by ~20%
  • Leading contributor - a success of real-time HFM. Increased market share to >30%
  • Delivered Permian Basin multi-well zipper frac HFM campaigns
  • Enhanced source parameter computation by estimating of P and S waves attenuation factors, Q, from microseismic data itself
  • Introduced the 1st single and multi-well horizontal monitoring campaign - Marcellus shale with revenue exceeding $1M             
  • Unlocked the door for sales team to sell jobs to Chevron Northeast markets
  • Added revenue ~20%. Introduced solutions and enhanced processing results
  • Delivered in Unconventional training program for Middle East young G&G professionals
  • Solved geophone channel order when dealing with 3rd party datasets, communicated SOP to be followed and avoid pre-assumed channel order which can result in wrong processing
  • Presented series of lunch and learn programs. Efforts translated to client education and improved relationship with Denver-based clients
  • Participated in scorecard development. Supported field districts identified faulty tools to be fixed before sending them to the next job
  • Mancos and Niobrara HFM campaigns for EnCana added revenue ~$1M
  • Managed and completed HFM science project involving Time-Lapse VSP project
  • Developed diffusivity and permeability worksheets, provided to software development team which implemented in updated software versions
  • Provided on the job training, helped 7 junior and mid-career geophysicists excel
