Fabio Gonzalez is currently a reservoir engineering advisor with BP on assignment in Kuwait. He has 28 years of service to the industry. His experience with service companies, integrated oil and gas companies, independent and national oil and gas companies as a field engineer, petrophysicist, production engineer, reservoir engineer and production and reservoir engineering advisor in South America, North America, Africa and the Middle East, has given him the knowledge and experience to holistically approach technical problems and propose solutions to clastic and carbonate reservoirs.
His global experience includes 20 years in offshore deepwater projects in Gulf of Mexico, USA, and Africa where he has participated in the whole value chain from exploration to development including financial analysis. His greatest technical passion is pressure transient analysis as a key to unlock production optimisation and reservoir management opportunities; an area he always advocates and has applied for 22 years.
Siyavash Motealleh is a senior reservoir engineer with 10+ years of experience in classical reservoir engineering, including pressure transient analysis (PTA), rate transient analysis (RTA), material balance, etc. with BP. Siyavash is currently in an assignment in Kuwait working with the Greater Burgan study team.
Siyavash worked both in onshore and offshore US assets. Before joining BP Kuwait team, Siyavash was lead classical reservoir engineer in unconventional reservoir technology (URT) team with responsibility of supporting asset teams on PTA/RTA and any production transient data for surveillance, diagnosis and well performance prediction. Siyavash also has led the production enhancement program for URT team. Siyavash received his MSc degree in Applied Earth Science at TU Delft, and a PhD in Petroleum Engineering at UT Austin. He is the author of more than 25 reports, internal company best practices, and technical articles in his field. Siyavash is also the co-author of a patent in the area of reservoir pressure measurement. His area of expertise includes pressure transient analysis, classical RE techniques, and pore-scale petrophysics.
