Dr. Saurabh Naik holds a PhD from the University of Adelaide. He is a published researcher with significant research and development experience in analytical and numerical modelling of multiphase flow in porous media, with an emphasis on tight gas and shale reservoirs. His research interests include wettability alteration, water blockage, production enhancement, particle flow and application of percolation theory in reservoir engineering.
Saurabh also has extensive oil and gas industry experience in integrated production modelling (IPM), with a focus on production de-bottlenecking and optimization. As a modeller, he has utilized his programming and coding capabilities to automate and streamline scenario analysis and model maintenance.
At Predico software, Saurabh will act as a reservoir and production specialist focusing on the development of advanced reservoir and production models, including flow assurance and IPM. Suarabh will also play a key role in quality control and assurance of our Advanced Flow Analytics (AFA) software.
