Adel Erian, P.Eng, - Simulation Expert
Mr. Erian, P.Eng., is a highly seasoned reservoir engineer with emphasis on reservoir numerical modelling. Mr. Erian has over 30 years of reservoir engineering experience around the globe (Canada, USA, Libya, Venezuela, Mexico and Colombia). His main focus is on utilizing reservoir simulation techniques to device optimal field development plans and implement reservoir management tools to maximize the ultimate oil and gas recoveries. Mr. Erian has modeled numerous types of E.O.R projects, including CO2, gas miscible injection, WAG, and waterflooding.
Mr. Erian conducted over 50 international reservoir studies using the most common simulators including Eclipse, IMAX, Stars, Exodus, MoreD (Roxair), Athos (Fran Lab) etc. He developed his own programs including: Black Oil Model, Decline Analysis, Material balance, Flash calculation. He also mentors junior engineers for conducing reservoir simulation studies. He published two papers "The Role of Kinetics in the Numerical Simulation of the In-Situ Combustion", Second International Conference on Heavy Crude and Tar Sands 1972, Venezuela and “The Gas Well”, Using a gas well mechanistic model, Sand Consultants Inc., 1999.
Mr. Erian graduated from the University of Alexandria (Egypt) with B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineer (1968) and Diploma in Statistics and Computer Science from the Cairo University (Egypt) in (1972). He also completed his M.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan (Canada) in 1977 and M.Sc. in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Calgary, (Canada) in 1980.
