Current Experience

  • Complex Fluid Specialist
    Since July 2011
    Core member of Global Complex Fluids team, I provide outstanding technical support related to all chemical and thermodynamic aspects of Petroleum Fluids. My work directly impacted multi-million to multi-billion dollar investment decisions under complex and cost challenging circumstances.

Past Experience

  • Reservoir Fluids Engineer/Production chemist
    November 2008 --- June 2011
    Whilst building effective relationships and interacting professionally with internal and external stakeholders and service companies, I delivered trusted, research-quality analysis related to the fluid content and behaviour of North Sea reservoirs. I meticulously analysed complex data obtained through on-site sampling and various laboratory testing methods to realistically model reservoirs for hydrocarbon contaminants (CO2, H2S, mercaptans, mercury, arsenic and naturally occurring radioactive materials). Additionally, I applied various production chemistry analytical techniques and modelling to support flow assurance and reservoir studies to select inhibitors (wax, scale, corrosion etc.) whilst preventing formation damage

  • Senior Scientist
    November 2007 --- November 2008
    This position allowed me to apply the formulation skills I gained from my pharmaceutical background to successfully design and formulate new products across the drilling completion fluids and production chemicals categories to suit a range of applications (high temperature, pressures, salinities, etc.). Key highlights included successfully managing the design and implementation of a new lab, leading a R&D project on starch polymers for High-Pressure-High-Temperature Drilling Fluids and • driving product implementation programs forwards in a client focused and positive manner.

  • Senior Product Development Chemist
    October 2006 --- November 2007
    My first role enabled me to gain expertise in materializing novel ideas for product development through to commercialisation. I was specifically involved in the formulation and development of a new range of stimulation and production chemicals, ensuring high quality, reliable performance and cost effectiveness.
