Pierre Ramondenc

Coiled Tubing Technical Director Reservoir Performance, Schlumberger

Pierre Ramondenc is the Coiled Tubing Technical Director at Schlumberger, with more than 15 years of oilfield experience. He is responsible for the definition and implementation of new workflows (both operational and software-related), technical competency and training programs, tools, and overall digital architecture of coiled tubing services and several production enhancement initiatives. 

Pierre has been involved in all aspects of coiled-tubing real-time telemetry, including tool creation, intervention design and execution, and data interpretation. He has led the creation of most of the coiled-tubing intervention workflows that leverage real-time data and fiber optics distributed sensing, and their inclusion in the production digital landscape. He has authored more than 35 technical papers and patent applications related to those topics.

Pierre holds MS and PhD degrees in civil and environmental engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology. He served as an SPE Distinguished Lecturer in 2017–2018 and has been a technical committee member of the SPE/ICoTA Well Intervention Conference & Exhibition and the SPE Workshop on Fiber-Optic Sensing Applications for Well, Reservoir, and Asset Management since 2016 and 2017, respectively. Pierre currently serves as Board Director of ICoTA. He is also a technical editor of the SPE Production & Operations Journal, the Elsevier’s Journal of Natural Gas Science and Engineering, and the Elsevier’s Journal of Applied Ocean Research.
