Dr. Dragana D. Nebrigic joined DeGolyer and MacNaughton in 2007 as a specialist in modern stratigraphic interpretations of depositional successions, siliciclastic and carbonate, focusing on structural and stratigraphic complexities. She is a specialist in geocellular modeling.

Nebrigic earned her bachelor’s degree in geological engineering from the College of Geology and Mining at the University of Belgrade in Yugoslavia in 1994. She was awarded a doctorate degree from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2006. She is a member of the American Association of Professional Geologists (AAPG) and the Geological Society of America, has contributed technical papers to petroleum industry journals, and has made presentations on a variety of subjects at AAPG conferences. She is fluent in Serbian, English, and Russian.

Major Projects

Since Nebrigic joined D&M, she has worked on multidisciplinary projects as a principal geocellular modeler and stratigrapher for oil and gas fields in Africa, South America, Russia, Asia, and Western Australia. As part of integrated field studies, she has constructed multimillion-cell geocellular models and has routinely used advanced geostatistical techniques to quantify reservoir heterogeneities to improve reservoir performance prediction.

Nebrigic has performed stratigraphic and depositional modeling for many large oil and gas fields in Africa and the Middle East. She has extensive regional geological experience in most of the major petroleum-producing basins in North Africa. As a part of the expert teams, she has been involved in the field appraisals of major plays in North Africa, as well basin analysis and petroleum system modeling in the Middle East (Kuwait and UAE). She is actively involved in unconventional resources development, having expertise in interpretation and geological modeling of unconventional formations, resources assessments, and petroleum reservoir characterization with most of her recent projects involving major plays in Algeria, Tunisia, and Western Australia.
