Computational fluid dynamics
Good english communication
Research and development
Design of experiments
Designed the fluid formulations in accordance with API specifications. Characterized the rheological and viscoelastic properties of the fluid samples at atmospheric and HPHT conditions.
The aim of the project was to investigate the factors that promote barite particle settling in oil-based drilling fluids under static and sheared conditions as well as at ambient and HPHT conditions.See Details
