My research activities are primarily in the area of petroleum geomechanics. My current focus is on developing numerical and physical model tests for the prediction of sand production, hydraulic fracturing, caprock integrity, and wellbore stability.
My research interests include:
Land units in Western Canada, types and characteristics of well completions, perforating, wellbore damage and simulation, combined inflow and well performance analysis, multiphase flow through conduits, oil well pumping, gas lift, surface facilities and flow measurement, applied mass transfer. Prerequisite: CH E 312.Winter Term 2021
An advanced treatment of selected petroleum engineering topics of current interest to staff and students.Fall Term 2020
