Major Projects

At D&M, Zonoozi specializes in assisting clients with well completion design and well evaluations based on interpretation of logs, core data, and test results with a focus on unconventional reservoirs. Recent work has included petrophysics and geomechanics evaluation in major tight gas, tight oil, shale gas, and shale oil plays in North America (Barnett, Eagle Ford, Deep Bossier, Haynesville, Marcellus, Montney, Avalon, Wolfcamp, and Woodford), Asia, South America, the Middle East, Europe, and Australia. Zonoozi’s work significantly aids in the design of hydraulic fracture and selection of horizontal well landing points. In addition to formation valuation, Zonoozi also analyzes well performance using production-analysis methods to evaluate dynamic reservoir properties. Zonoozi regularly teaches formation valuation short courses focusing on unconventional resources for various D&M clients.

As a wireline field engineer with Schlumberger, Zonoozi became familiar with open-hole well logging and troubleshooting to ensure log quality control. He then transferred to Schlumberger Data and Consulting Services as a petrophysicist in 2007 and performed well-log interpretation and analysis. In addition, Zonoozi has taught Schlumberger internal short courses in wireline acoustic tools and wellbore geomechanics in conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
