Ivan PanarinExperienced Geologist and Geoscientist
I'm an Exploration and Production Geologist and Manager with 15+ years experience in scientific, service, consulting, oil and gas producing companies. Responsible for reserves and resources estimation, risk and uncertainty analysis, regional studies, well planning and well design documents. In recent years, I've been involved in the business development process including geological and economic assessments of assets around the World.
What I can do:
- Collecting, processing and analysis of geological, geophysical, petrophysical, seismic, reservoir engineering and other information. Organization of a database for the reserves and resources estimation.
- HC resources and reserves estimation using deterministic and probabilistic methodics.
- Development and verification of 2D/3D geological models of oil and gas fields, gas storages.
- Geometrization of oil and gas pools, substantiation of fluid contacts, volumetric parameters.
- PVT data analysis of the subsurface and surface properties of oil and gas samples.
- Selection of testing intervals in exploration, appraisal and development wells.
- Evaluation of oil and gas reserves according to PRMS and SEC requirements.
- Regional studies on forecasting oil and gas potential.
- Geological risks analysis.
- Initial production rates forecasts and future gross hydrocarbons production evaluation.
- Planning and support of the contractual activities. Preparation, approval of contracts, technical specifications, time schedule, effort estimate.
