Dr. Hamed Darabi

Technology Execution Leader, QRI

Dr. Darabi is the technology execution leader at Quantum Reservoir Impact (QRI). His current responsibility is to maintain key QRI technologies, expand QRI’s intellectual property, and ensure high-quality delivery of QRI technologies to clients. Since 2013, Dr. Darabi served as the team lead for multiple filed studies, and was involved in the development various QRI's proprietary products. He also worked on several giant fields in Middle East to implement QRI technologies and perform reservoir studies. Prior to QRI, Dr. Darabi worked as reservoir engineer at Occidental Oil & Gas Corporation and various companies in Middle East, since 2006. His experience spans reservoirs in California, Kuwait, Partitioned Zone, Iran, UAE, Mexico, and Iraq. Dr. Darabi received his Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin, where he extensively studied reservoir simulator development and mathematical modeling. For his dissertation, he developed a non-isothermal compositional simulator to model asphaltene precipitation, flocculation, and deposition in oil reservoirs and near wellbore. Moreover, he studied the condition of asphaltene precipitation in Asab field in UAE during CO2 Injection.
