Research Interests

My research interest focuses on unconventional reservoir simulation, especially using reservoir simulation techniques to study gas and liquid flow in shale. Due to extremely small pore size and inheterogeneity of shale reservoir, many new mechanisms (diffusion, adsorption/desorption, special phase behavior in micro/nano pores ...) need to be included into our consideration. How should we consider these and to what degree they will affect our oil and gas production, these are the questions I try to get more knowledge of.

Education

  • B.Sc., Petroleum Engineering, New Mexico Tech, Socorro, NM

Research Interests

My research interest is Unconventional Reservoir Simulation, more specifically Reservoir Simulation of Shale Reservoirs. Since shale gas production becomes important for oil and gas industry, the complex nature of fluid flow in hydraulic fractures, natural fractures and pores in shale reservoirs is one of the challenging topics on reservoir simulation. I am studying on this topic for more reliable results for reservoir engineering aspects.

  • B.Sc., Petroleum Engineering, NED University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi, Pakistan

Research Interests

My research area would be focused on the fluid flow mechanisms in unconventional reservoirs. Owing to the small size of nano-pores that exist in the kerogen part of shale, non darcy flow exists & relative permeability behaves differently ( acting as a function of pressure ). I would be trying to integrate this apparent permeability trend into commercial simulators and studying the results obtained.
