On Thursday, Dec 17th, 2015, the Department of Petroleum Engineering at KUST, organized an inauguration ceremony and workshop for launching the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) KUST Student Chapter.

The ceremony started officially with the KUST President, Dr. Salah Aziz welcome speech. In his speech, KUST President pointed out the importance of such an event and wished the success of the Chapter to its members. He expressed his support to the faculty members’ initiatives, and showed his appreciation to PTE members and specially Mr. Muhammad Ali for his initiative. He also congratulated the Executive Committee members, selected for this Chapter.

Later on, Dr. Hamid Farangis Zadeh, the Acting Chairman of PTE, welcomed the President, faculty members, administration, and students, and called the day a historic day. Dr. Farangis Zadeh stated that SPE Chapter is a turning point for current petroleum engineering students as well as the ones joining the department in future. He briefly explained the benefits of establishment of a SPE Chapter, and encouraged the students for more contribution and helping their Chapter and the Executive Committee toward a success.

Dr. Hiwa Sidiq, the Academic Advisor of PTE, shared his experiences with respect to membership of SPE and its importance.

In the second part of the ceremony, Mr. Muhammad Ali, the SPE Faculty Advisor, presented detailed information about SPE, its role in Petroleum Engineering education and research, and also opportunities that SPE can offer now and in future. He extensively clarified the benefits of membership of SPE for students, regionally and internationally. He shared the ways to establish a successful Chapter, and how to strengthen a Chapter continuously.

Finally, Dr. Farangis Zadeh introduced the members of the Chapter Executive Committee, and announced the role of member in the Committee.

Welcome Message for the 2015-2016 Academic Year

posted Nov 29, 2015, 1:00 AM by Nama Ezaddin   [ updated Nov 29, 2015, 1:00 AM ]

Dear PTE students, staff, and faculty members,

The 2015-2016 academic year has begun, and it is a great honor for me to take this opportunity to warmly welcome all of you, especially the ones who have recently joined us.

Despite the fact that we are a young department, we ambitiously achieved our goals planned for the year 2014-2015, and I hope that we will together successfully fulfill the PTE objectives in the coming year as well.

I am very proud of everyone -students, staff, and faculty- for the accomplishments of last year, none of which could never ever happen without considerable effort and much hard work. Some of our students were selected for the President's and VP's clubs, our faculty members published scientific papers, we deployed computer labs for computer simulations applicable to Petroleum Engineering, and we established connections with international and domestic Petroleum companies within the region. These are just a few indicators of our success, all in addition to the enhancements we made in both teaching quantity and quality.

I have no doubt that by implementing the lessons we have learnt, and also taking benefit from improved teamwork we can reach the goals we have set, and indeed go beyond our expectations; so, let's begin this academic year with strong wishes of success for everyone!

Hamid Farangis Zadeh,

Acting Chairman of PTE

Our students using 3D-numerical simulations for reservoir investigation

posted Nov 29, 2015, 12:56 AM by Nama Ezaddin   [ updated Nov 29, 2015, 12:56 AM ]

Building up an accurate reservoir model underpins the right economic decision for the field development plan. Therefore it is a critical requirement for successful reservoir management. The student at the Department of Petroleum Engineering (PTE) prepared a 3D reservoir simulation model based on an example field. Several sensitivity cases have been tested and part of this project displayed during the University Day 2015.
