Major Projects

Since joining D&M, Ghasemi has worked on various projects, including integrated field development planning studies for multiple oil and gas reservoirs in the Krasnoleninskoye field in Russia. Among his work in this field, he built, history-matched, and forecast simulation models. He also carried out a conceptual development study using multi-stage hydraulically fractured horizontal wells.

He has performed numerous integrated waterflood studies for various fields and used the results of his analyses for reserves assessments. These studies included engineering analysis, benchmarking of best practices, waterflood maturity analysis, and dynamic reservoir modeling.

He performed a multi-field development study for a suite of four gas fields with a total of 25 reservoirs. In this project, he evaluated multiple development scenarios to improve the economic value of the development plan.

He is also experienced in thermal recovery techniques for high-viscous oil recovery including hot-water injection and steam flooding.
