I am an enthusiastic and innovative geoscientist with strong analytical skills and 13 years of experience in exploration and integrated development planning teams. I have strong technical skills in geoscience. My experience is in a wide variety of projects in different geological and commercial settings with various levels of data density and quality. I have worked through different rules in two of the major JV Companies between the governmental parities and number of major multi-national oil companies (Shell, BP and ENI). I have occupied several rules throughout my professional career history (senior reservoir geoscientist and geo-modeler,  regional exploration studies geologist and well site / operations geologist, regional exploration studies geologist) in addition to other rules / responsibilities, which have sharpen my skills and given me the ability to deliver high quality work products. I have acquired the master’s degree in petroleum geoscience “reservoir characterization of a tight gas sand reservoir”.

I am holding Master’s Degree from Faculty of Science - Cairo University, in  Petroleum Geoscience. I have been working in the oil & gas industry for 13 years. Currently I’m working as senior  development / reservoir geologist in the Pharaonic Petroleum Company (BP/ENI JV Company) which is operating several Concessions offshore the East Mediterranean Sea. I have joined the Subsurface team early 2010 as a Development / Reservoir Geologist, my role include leading the processes of building, updating and reviewing the subsurface static description and reservoir models in order to provide support for the reservoir management activities, depletion planning and the resource reviews via integrating Geological, Geophysical, Petrophysical and Reservoir Engineering data. My role also includes assessment of the near field appraisal / exploration opportunities, well planning, location optimization, support and documentation of the drilled well activities / results.

Previously I was working for the Badr Petroleum company (Shell JV company) which is one of the major companies operating in the Western Desert of Egypt since 2004 till 2010 in the Exploration department as Regional Studeis Geologist, Operations Geologist, Well site Geologist & Data Management team member; in this company for a period of time made me gain a very good experience in managing well operations, well sitting operations, post well documentation, data management, sedimentological studies core and reservoir description in addition to reservoir mapping / modeling skills.

My career path in both companies has improved my geological backgrounds that enhanced my technical capabilities and interpersonal skills that makes me fits a position in your company as I am actively seeking a new challenge and opportunity.

 Kindly find herewith attached my detailed resume. I would appreciate an opportunity to discuss it further with you.

 Thank you for your consideration and time.
