SOME OF MY ACHIEVEMENTS

CFD & PARTICLE TRACING SIMULATION

Particle Tracing modelling coupled with CFD analysis allows to detect the critical areas in drill string design to avoid the cuttings accumulation

Patent on the anti-balling design of nozzles soccer of PDC drill bit

CFD and Particle Tracing Model with COMSOL Multiphysics

New Rock Cutting Model

TOOL-ROCK INTERACTION MODEL

On-going development of a new rock cutting model, that  would provide an accurate prediction of the forces on the cutting element in wide range of complex drilling conditions such as high confinement and high temperature (HTHC), high vibrations, impact

EXPERIMENTAL R&D PROJECT

The project was developped from scratch up to the field application and provided the analytical model of Torque Control Element of the PDC drill bit. The work stages included the invention of an experimental support, prototyping, fabrication follow up, experimental program development and realisation.

torque control element

The purpose was to develop a model from the experimental data and to implement it in the drilling simulator.

15 years

experience in petroleum industry

100%

R&D projects

Starting with research experience in directional drilling modelling I acquired 15 years practices in petroleum industry in different engineering fields such as offshore structures, directional drilling, drill bit engineering, software development, etc. My engineering experience compiled with scientific skills allowed me to reach a new level of independent R&D consultant and to lead a wide range of projects with strong emphase on development of innovative tools and new technics in modelling and simulation of oil&gas and geothermal drilling processes.
