PhD Candidate

Mohammadreza’ research is primarily about conventional and unconventional reservoir geomechanics. Currently he is doing his PhD in petroleum engineering and working on stress distribution modelling and solid production prediction in Coal Seam Gas reservoirs. His research aim is to develop a new analytical model for stress distribution in unconventional reservoirs by coupling all influencing parameters. He has a MSc in petroleum engineering and a BSc in mining engineering. Mohammadreza joined Research Institute of Petroleum Industry (NIOC), as a petroleum geomechaics engineer in 2011 and during his career period he was involved in multidisciplinary industrial projects including filed development plan, wellbore stability analysis, 1D MEM, shale gas reservoir characterization,pore pressure and fracture pressure prediction, well log interpretation and reservoir characterization.
