HALLIBURTON, Houston, TX 2019 to 2020
Geoscientist – Formation Reservoir Solutions
• Reduced non-productive time (NPT), saved costs, and increased production across multiple wells in North America by managing projects on corrosion analysis, leak detection, cased hole petrophysics, and formation evaluation.
• Generated faster analysis, decreased well costs and NPT by examining electromagnetic (EPX) data to assess pipe damage (metal loss) in up to 5 tubular in a single run.
• Increased remediation procedure speed and cut down NPT and potential environmental impact by assessing acoustic (ACX) data to locate leaks in wells, both vertically and radially.
• Enhanced client decision-making capabilities and speed for optimal fracking locations by analyzing pulsed neutron data along with gamma, density / neutron, and resistivity from an offset well to estimate an open hole triple combo log in a lateral.
• Met strict deadlines to deliver solutions, reduce NPT, and save customers' costs by coordinating with field engineers, business development, and clients, holding meetings, conference calls, and emails, discussing best practices for each project, answering questions, and resolving issues.

HALLIBURTON, Houston, TX (Acquired Ingrain 2017) 2012 to 2019
