With over 10 years of experience as a Senior Petroleum Engineer at Apache, I have cultivated expertise in conventional and unconventional reservoirs, including extensive work on multistage hydraulic fracturing projects. My passion for the field drove me to earn a Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Houston, adding to my M.Sc. and B.S. in the same field from Suez University in Egypt. I have been able to contribute to industry knowledge by publishing multiple papers in peer-reviewed journals like MDPI Energies and presenting research at prominent conferences including SPE, ARMA, and OTC. This combination of education, experience, and ongoing engagement with research and conferences provides me with a wealth of knowledge to bring to any subsurface petroleum engineering role.

Wavelet Transform research project with Prof. Dr. M.Y. Soliman ( 2023 Hydraulic Fracture legend)
• The Wavelet Transform project revolutionizes petroleum engineering by employing advanced signal processing techniques, particularly the Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT), to analyze complex data from hydraulic fracturing and reservoir management without presumptions about geological properties. Utilizing CWT on treating pressure in hydraulic fracturing reveals unique signatures for fracture propagation modes, aiding in estimating stimulated reservoir volume and detecting fracture closure events accurately. Moreover, CWT analyzes water hammer signals to assess induced fracture complexity and inter-well connectivity between injectors and producers. These groundbreaking analyses, validated through simulation and field cases, have led to four submitted patents, showcasing a significant advancement in the field. The project's outcomes are integrated into user-friendly software, promising wide applicability across diverse oil and gas operations
Horizontal Acid Stimulation Campaign in Carbonates
• It was five wells in limestone and dolomite where acid stimulation with chemical diverters was used with coiled tubing equipped with distributed temperature sensing (DTS).

Shale Gas Exploration and Potential Evaluation
• Main contribution to the part of Hydraulic fracturing stimulation optimization, evaluation, rock mechanics, completion, studies, application, and economic analysis.
Tight Gas Development Project:-
• Member of unconventional gas resources exploration and potential evaluation.
• Responsible and main contribution to the part of pilot wells hydraulic fracturing stimulation design process, completion selection and studies, rock mechanics, application, and economic analysis.
Shaly sand mature reservoir development
• Team member in the First Successful Implementation of Horizontal Multistage Fracturing
to Enhance Oil Production in shaly sand Reservoirs and maximize its recovery after
introducing pinpoint and sliding sleeve multistage hydraulic fracturing techniques for the
horizontal wells.
• Team member in optimization of fracture geometry by Micro-seismic fracture mapping that
provides an image of the fractures by detecting microseisms or micro-earthquakes that are triggered by shear slippage on bedding planes or natural fractures adjacent to the hydraulic
fracture. This diagnostic information enables the optimization of fracture treatments and well
placement/field development strategies.
