  • Fields of Interest:

    My current research interests include •Reserve estimations •Heterogeneity classifications (carbonate rocks). •EOR Methods. Microbial Enhanced oil Recovery. •Absolute permeability from resistivity measurements. In addition to my research interests I also have substantial experience and have undertaken projects using the following Petroleum Industry software •MBAL and OFM software was used to estimate oil and gas reserves and establish field development plan for Oil and Gas fields. •Interactive Petrophysics (IP) software is other software programme that I am experienced in using for well logging interpretation. •Reservoir characterization Software

  • Projects Supervised:

    •At Suez Canal University I have supervised 7 completed MSc and 2 completed PhD’s •At BUE I have supervised 55 completed research projects
