Bikram is an expert Reservoir Engineer and has 22 years of diversified hands-on experiences as a Petroleum Reservoir Engineer in Exploration and Production Companies and Consulting Firms with heavy emphasis on Reservoir Simulation. Bikram has worked as Senior Reservoir Engineer PETRONAS, Malaysia, Senior Reservoir Engineer / Operations Manager, Kelkar and Associates, Abu Dhabi, UAE, Well Engineer, Schlumberger, Mexico, and Reservoir Engineer, OIL, India
His area of expertise include Static-Dynamic Integration, Reservoir Dynamic Modeling or Flow Simulation in Black Oil and Compositional Simulator, Classical Reservoir Engineering Methods (Material Balance, Decline Curve Analysis, Reserves Estimates & Production Forecasts etc), Waterflood Performance Analysis and Monitoring, Fracture Network Modeling, Streamline Simulation, and Preparation of FDP/ADP
Some of his key projects include, Palas J Sand Gas Recycling Study, ExxonMobil, Malaysia to evaluate the feasibility of Gas Recycling vs-a-vs Gas Cap Blow Down of Palas J Sand reservoir, by (a) Upscaling a 23 million cells geomodel(b) preparing PVT model, (c) converting a black-oil model to compositional model. Seligi J15/16 Dynamic Study: History matching and prediction of Seligi, a large oilfield in the Malay Basin. EOR Process Selection, RF Benchmarking, Geomodel initialization, history matching and forecasting of various field development scenario. of a shaly-sand reservoir of Turkmenistan. Multiple projects with EUFR Asset Team, ADCO, U.A.E involving Stochastic property modeling and reconciling with dynamic data, Uncertainty evaluations by blind tests and employ them to generate STOIIP uncertainty ranges. Dynamic model preparation, initialization (developing pseudo RRT; reconciling PLT, Sw log and MICP data; iteration with static model), reconcile well-test data and history matching (short duration test as well as well production data). Reservoir Modeling Study of Priobskoe Field, ROSNEFT Generation of Multiple Realizations and their Ranking based on streamline based sweep efficiencies in a field undergoing water flood. Many other projects during his stint with Schlumberger and Oil India Limited.
Bikram has numerous publications to his credit and holds M.S. in Petroleum Engineering from Texas Tech, TX, USA and B.S. in Petroleum Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Dhanbad(ISM).
