Consulting and business development for well-centric 1D-MEM and WBS, Real Time Drilling Geomechanics, Sonic Scanner application to improve WBS analysis and Hydraulic Fracturing in ERW, Unconventional reservoirs (Shale Gas, Tight Reservoirs) etc.
Working in the Petro Technical Engineering Center PTEC in Abu Dhabi covering the United Arab Emirates and Iraq, where experts from different disciplines are together (D&M, Geoservices, Well Services, MI-Swaco, Smith Bits, Smith DT&R and PTS Geomechanics) to deliver a complete drilling system from surface to the bit including understanding of the wellbore stability, formations and reservoir. My Geomechanics expertise in Predrill design, drilling operations and real time support are important input in the PTEC team where high profile wells (HPHT, complex structures, exploratory wells, ERW, unconventionals, etc) are analyzed to maximize drilling footage, reduce lost in hole and minimize NPT associated to wellbore stability problems. The PTEC team working together translates all segments expertise into high value to our customers and in revenue for Schlumberger. Working as Geomechanics Engineer in the Petro Technical Services SLB segment (PTS), my job consists to build 1D-Mechanical Earth Models and Wellbore Stability analysis for all the wells assigned to us in the region. My Geomechanics results are important input for Hydraulic Fracturing design in different projects for Well Services including unconventional reservoirs.
