blas.jpgDr. Tom Blasingame is a Professor and is the holder of the Robert L. Whiting Professorship in the Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University in College Station Texas.  He holds B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from Texas A&M University — all in Petroleum Engineering.  In teaching and research activities Dr. Blasingame focuses on petrophysics, reservoir engineering, analysis/interpretation of well performance, and technical mathematics.


Dr. Blasingame's research efforts deal with topics in applied reservoir engineering, reservoir modeling, and production engineering.  Dr. Blasingame has made numerous contributions to the petroleum literature in well test analysis, analysis of production data, reservoir management, evaluation of low/ultra-low permeability reservoirs, and general reservoir engineering (e.g., hydrocarbon phase behavior, natural gas engineering, inflow performance relations, material balance methods, and field studies).  To date (March 2013), Dr. Blasingame has graduated 51 M.S. (thesis), 30 M.Eng. (report, non-thesis), and 10 Ph.D. students, and he has performed several major field studies involving geology, petrophysics, and engineering tasks.


Dr. Blasingame is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), the Society for Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG).  Dr. Blasingame is a Distinguished Member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (2000) and he is a recipient of the SPE Distinguished Service Award (2005), the SPE Uren Award (for technology contributions before age 45) (2006), the SPE Lucas Medal (SPE's preeminent technical award) (2012), and he has served as an SPE Distinguished Lecturer (2005-2006).  Dr. Blasingame has prepared over 120 technical articles; and he has chaired numerous technical committees and technical meetings.  Dr Blasingame also served as Assistant Department Head (Graduate Programs) for the Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M from 1997 to 2003, and Dr. Blasingame has been recognized with several teaching and service awards from Texas A&M University.
