Associate Professor - Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering
Dr. Ebrahim Fathi is an expert in unconventional oil and gas recovery. He has been heavily involved in developing new laboratory measurement techniques quantifying fluid storage and transport in organic-rich shale resources under dynamic reservoir conditions. He participated in innovative research developing new-generation of flow simulators for unconventional reservoirs, in simulation-based history-matching and optimization efforts in the laboratory, and the area of computational fluid dynamics. His recent research focus is on multi-stage hydraulic fracturing of horizontal wells and prediction of fault reactivation in hydraulic fracturing of horizontal wells in Shale gas reservoirs. He serves as a technical editor for the SPE journal and received SPE outstanding service award 2013.
