  • Senior Production Technologist

    at NIS-Naftagas (NIS Gasprom Neft)

    February 1993 - May 2005

    Autonomna Pokrajina Vojvodina

    Worked at various positions started as Junior/Intermediate/Senior Production Engineer (PE), Field Supervisor, Senior Production Technologist and ALS Specialist. Diagnosed well production problems and prepared recommendations for workover, recompletion and stimulation operations for more than 200 wells in Serbia. Optimized Production of oil (700-3700m), gas (700-3000m), water injection (2700m) and ground water wells using NODAL analysis approach (PIPESIM, WPM, GLOP) as well as designed sucker rod and PCP pumping systems to achieve optimal production. As a team member worked on many Projects, Feasibility Studies and few Basic Engineering Design of oil and gas field development and construction. As Field Engineer worked on largest oil field in Serbia supervised workover (sucker rod pumps repairs, squeeze cementing, abandonment), completions (perforating, down hole equipment installation), sand control (low density) and stimulation jobs. Optimized production of flowing and SRP wells.
