Major Projects

In 2014, Dordoni was the project leader for D&M as it assisted the National Hydrocarbon Commission in Mexico (CNH) with its efforts during Round Zero and Round One. In Round Zero, Dordoni worked with a multidisciplinary group of D&M professionals and representatives from the Mexican government to assist CNH with its assessment of which exploration areas and fields should be retained by Pemex. After this initial process, CNH engaged D&M as technical advisor during Round One to assess the potential value of dozens of onshore and offshore oil and gas fields and exploration blocks in preparation for the first licensing round for the country.

Between 2008 and 2011, Dordoni was Lead Petroleum Engineer with Chevron for the Takula Asset, the first super giant waterflood field offshore Angola, where he and his team developed and executed the waterflood optimization and realignment project of the Upper Vermelha reservoir, successfully arresting the decline of this large mature offshore field. Due to his knowledge on this area, Dordoni participated in numerous peer reviews for green-field and brown-field development activities offshore Angola.
