Biography

My multidisciplinary experience gave me a good overview of the exploration and production (E&P) sector. I have a pro-active attitude, see problems as challenges, like to go to the depth of matters, and good social skills. COMPETENCES • Integrate varied Geoscience disciplines as sedimentology, petrophysics and seismic interpretation for 3D geological modelling purpose. • Basic reservoir engineering, production surveillance with analytical and forecasting tools. • Drilling and Fields experience. Performed, monitored geological activities of new infill wells and real-time operational technical support during landing and drain drilling phases.

Research Interest

PROFESSIONAL STORY After my university cursus in Geology & Environment I’ve followed a Petroleum Geosciences program to IFP school. Then I occupied a Reservoir Engineer position. - I was in charge to create a Field production database integrated most of the dynamics measurement with the objective to analyse, optimize and forecast the production. - Work-Over proposals (perforation, acidification) and following-up current Fields operations. - Basics reservoir studies and well performance analysis. - Also, conducted a GIS database project for exploration purpose. Since 2010, I occupy international positions as Reservoir Geologist (Ivory-coast, Canada, Switzerland). - Reservoir characterization and modelling (65% of my time). Depositional rock-typing & sedimentological model integrating seismic, wireline & LWD logs, borehole imaging, core description & sequence stratigraphy. - Performed & monitored geological activities of 14 new infill wells (25% of my time). Target definition, drilling decisional chart & real-time monitoring landing & geosteering drilling phases. - Geophysics (10% of my time). Few experiences in generating synthetics, seismic interpretation & velocities modelling. Also, already worked with seismic attribute & used potential field method analysis in a shallow salt deposit environment.
