Major Projects

Ojha worked on optimization of artificial lift performance during his work at Cairn India Ltd. He worked on the improvement and application of modeling workflows for jet pumps and ESPs for production optimization on an onshore field. Simultaneously, he performed interpretation of reservoir surveillance data for a waterflood that included production logs and pressure transient analysis. Additionally, he worked on the identification of bottlenecks in a surface production network.

He has experience in history matching and performance prediction using commercial reservoir simulation software for conventional and unconventional resources. He also worked on the reporting of reserves and resources for an operator’s portfolio for two years.

During his graduate research at the University of Oklahoma, he worked on the interpretation of petrophysical measurements using percolation theory and the application of data mining for rock typing in unconventional reservoirs.
