He is the author of “Nano-confined Petroleum Recovery from Source Rocks,” which will be published in 2020. He has received over $3 million in external research funding from sources such as the Department of Energy and unconventional oil and gas industry. He is a distinguished member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). He was the executive editor of the SPE Journal 2013-2016. He was 2014-15 SPE distinguished lecturer. He has received 2017 TAMU-Association of Former Students teaching award, 2016 TAMU-Association of Former Students distinguished achievement award, and 2015 AIME Rossiter W. Raymond memorial award. Akkutlu served in various SPE, EAGE, and NSERC (Canada) committees.

Applied Petroleum Reservoir Engineering for Geoscientists

Dr. I. Yucel Akkutlu

This course includes engineering techniques applied to oil and gas wells production and reserve estimation. It provides clear and concise information on the basics of the reservoirs and the source rocks, with reference to petrophysics, fluid PVT studies, well testing, reservoir flow simulation, production history-matching and forecasting. Comparisons will be done with the source rocks. The course will help all specialists in the relevant disciplines such as geologists, geophysicists.
