Major Projects

Penaree has evaluated reserves in various geographic regions throughout the world. Working within D&M’s Central Europe and Asia Division, she has participated in reserves evaluations for both onshore and offshore oil and gas fields.

A regular user of Techlog petrophysical and Petrel geological software packages, Penaree has analyzed all major types of logs, including electric logs predating the 1960s, Russian logs, NMR logs, imaging logs, standard open‑hole logs, and LWD. She has used the interpretation of advanced logs in the petrophysical modeling of reservoirs consisting of low-porosity fractured clastics, fractured and vuggy complex carbonates, and reservoirs with highly variable freshwater salinities, and combined these into coherent geological models.

Her experience in Russia includes projects in Eastern Siberia, the Volga-Ural Basin, the Timan-Pechora Basin, and the West Siberian Basin, including the Yamal Peninsula and the Kara Sea.
