Dr. Kajari Ghosh has more than 15 years of experience in the petroleum industry. She joined DeGolyer and MacNaughton in 2017 as a geologist. Prior to joining D&M, she worked for Harvey Rock Physics, Chevron, and ExxonMobil.

She earned her undergraduate degree from University of Kolkata, India in 1997. She received her master’s degree in geology from Florida International University in 2003. In 2009, she earned her doctorate degree in geology from the University of Oklahoma. Ghosh is a certified petroleum geologist and member of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists. She was named a Vice President of D&M in 2020.

Major Projects

Ghosh has served as a fractured reservoir specialist for several fields around the globe. Some of her technical accomplishments are: 1) ranking Kurdistan blocks in terms of resources, producibility, and recovery uplift from fractures to assist bidding round, 2) reservoir characterization for static models of the Clair (North Sea) and Tengiz (Kazakhstan) fields with a focus on fracture flow capability, resulting in improved history match and input for designing IOR models for better sweep efficiency, and 3) constructing discrete fracture network models for multiple fields.

Prior to working as a fractured reservoir SME, she worked on various projects that involved 1) crustal-scale seismic interpretation of offshore East India, 2) subsurface characterization of reservoir rocks and static model construction for a heavy oil project in California, and 3) reservoir rock typing of onshore United Arab Emirate fields by integrating sedimentological, petrophysical, and engineering data. She has served as a development geologist for blocks offshore Angola and as a structural geologist for the Cantarell and Ek Balam fields (Mexico) and for fields in the Gulf of Mexico (United States). The focus of these studies ranged from building static models for field development to evaluating petroleum systems for frontier exploration.
