Major Projects

Since arriving at D&M, Wang has worked on various projects, including construction of simulation models, field development planning, and reserves estimation. He has constructed and forecast models for oil reservoirs in Russia under various development strategies, including primary, secondary, and tertiary recovery. He has conducted field development plan studies for development sensitivities and reserves upgrade assessment.

In Trinidad and Tobago, he assessed the current performance of several fields. He identified additional potential to technically recoverable resources through infill drilling and drilling through previously overlooked areas. He identified primary targets for development.

Wang worked on streamline surveillance modeling on fields under waterflood operations. He evaluated the current waterflood performance and highlighted areas of oil potential. Wang made recommendations to the adjust the injector rates to focus water injection to higher-performing injector-producer patterns.

He conducted a benchmarking analysis to optimize oil rim development for a national oil company in Russia. Production profiles were estimated for several fields based on planned field development. Wang conducted in-depth analyses on various sources of data, including fluid PVT data, SCAL data, and MDT data for several fields in Russia.
