Laprea Bigott, Marcelo individual record
Professor of the Practice

Activities involve teaching Pressure Transient and Rate Transient Analysis and the Petroleum Engineering, capstone design course, where students work in teams, solving practical petroleum engineering problems with up-to-date tools, and/or tools developed in class. The technical content of the projects includes a combination of design and analysis of well systems and procedures for drilling and completing wells, characterization and evaluation of subsurface geological formations and their resources, design and analysis of systems for producing, injecting, and handling fluids, application of reservoir engineering principles, and practices for development and management of natural resources. Study and project topics focus on evaluation of Unconventional Resource Potential in South Midland Basin oil asset. Mentor Graduate and Under-graduate students on related topics.
