Activities :

September 2009 until now: Petronas Cargali Kuala Lumpur, senior geoscientist in charge of the seismic interpretation, and prospect generation, in the deep water in the Mauritanian offshore basin. Main targets are the basin fan floor, channels feeder and incisive canyon, crevasse and frontal splays. Using seismic volume attributes, map attributes such as RMS amplitudes map, geomorphology maps, edge maps and others. Computing the Net to gross estimation, using the band limited impedance. AVO analysis based on the 3D volume Near, Mid and far offset stack and avo modelling. Mapped 03 new prospects, within the upper cretaceous (area more than 99 sq km); and another one within the Miocene sequence. January 2001- June 2009 Gravity and magnetic interpretation of the prospect area of the Ghardaia blocs, the residual gravity map confirm the proposed prospect for drilling 2D seismic design (830 km ) and gravity-magnetic design ( 1400 station) acquisition for structural and stratigraphic purpose Chief project in charge of the Ghardaia assets, witch includes 3 blocs, "in charge of the exploration aspect, and prospect generation and ranking". Recommended a new prospect of about 45 Km² witch was accepted and planed to be drilled on 2009. Generate 4 leads for about 25 Km² areas to be controlled with new seismic acquisition and gravity due to the hard land not suitable for vibroseis. In charge as chief project of sonatrach Task force , in accordance with the NOC Libyan team for preparing a bid round concerning the ALEPCO bloc's, including data room and contractual contract terms, economical study of the project President of technical committee, of the Sonatrach-Sinopec TCM Association, since January 2005 up to March 2008.

350 Km² 3D seismic acquisition preplanning and a tender bid procedure preparation and submission. Gravity interpretation combined to 2D seismic interpretation for the GHARADIA PERMIT (Bloc 419,436,420) . Four Prospects generated within the area, and a new play's was identified by the residual gravity map. 2D seismic interpretation of blocs 419, 436 in the Ghardaia permit, prospect ranking, "CPS mapping, depth conversion, synthetic calibration by using geoframe module". Velocity anomaly study due to the surface condition. Main results is a new 4 way deep closure prospect, with 15 Km² area. Preplanning and design new 3 D acquisition in the 315 bloc "Djofra permit". The 3D survey is laid on 550 Km² area and acquired for a better structural and stratigraphic prospect definition. Planning a 700 Km 2 D seismic acquisition stack array method in the 314 bloc. 2 D seismic interpretation of bloc 350, the main objective of the study was a seismic characterisation of the Devonian Barr's extension by using a seismic attribute's analysis 3D seismic interpretation in 438b block, "meandering system of Triassic sandstone reservoir". 2D seismic interpretation and prospect revaluation for the 438a block in Oued Mya basin (two time maps, velocity maps, depth map. Isopach maps). Involved in a special project for the west Hassi R'MEL field area. This project was concerning the interpretation of the870 Km high 2D seismic acquisition for structural and stratigraphic play interpretation. The study integrates the seismic inversion and true amplitude (Attributes interpretation). A total of 870 km 2D seismic "high resolution" planning and acquiring on 350 bloc west of Hassi R'mel Field

September 1984 to June 1989 :

On September 1984, I joined the National Hydrocarbon and Chemistry institute in BOUMERDES. The period is divided into part the first cycle, which concern the Mathematics, physics, chemistry and mechanic modules The second cycle, is concerning the geophysics courses. Witch including courses or modules with practical workshop and geological trip. The main courses are Electronic, Seismic (acquisition, processing, interpretation), Geology, Gravity-magnetic, signal theory, electric prospecting method and computer programming (FORTRAN, BASIC ). At the end I got my geophysical state engineer diploma ( Five years full study) after a practical study done in the Exploration department of Sonatrach JUNE 1983 : Science Baccalaureate equivalent to high school diploma
