Petroleum Production Optimization

Christine Ehlig-Economides Ph.D.
Descripción del instructor

Is currently full professor of petroleum engineering at Texas A&M University in the A. B. Stevens endowed chair. She has recently become director of the Center for Energy, Environment, and Transportation Innovation (CEETI) in the Crisman Institute. Dr. Ehlig-Economides worked for Schlumberger for 20 years in a truly global capacity. She has published more than 50 papers and has authored 2 patents, and has lectured or consulted in more than 30 countries. Dr. Ehlig-Economides is internationally recognized for expertise in reservoir engineering, pressure transient analysis, integrated reservoir characterization, complex well design, and production enhancement. Her professional service includes: Executive Editor of the Society of Petroleum Engineers Formation Evaluation journal 1995-96 ;SPE Distinguished Lecture 1997-98; and numerous posts as chairman or member of SPE committees and task forces. She recently co-chaired a steering committee for the Middle East Colloquium in Petroleum Engineering Education was the Program Chairperson for the 2006 SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition, and is currently co-chairing an SPE Talent and Retention Workshop on Dual Career Couples in the petroleum industry. She is currently a member of the National Academy of Science Committee on America's Energy Future. Christine Ehlig-Economides received a B.A. degree in math-science from Rice an M.S. degree in chemical engineering from the University of Kansas, and a Ph.D. degree in petroleum engineering from Stanford University. Dr. Ehlig-Economides has received numerous awards from the Society of Petroleum Engineers and was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2003.
