Hamid Reza is currently a Senior Lecturer in Oil & Gas Engineering in the school of Engineering. He teaches on a range of oil & gas modules within the Oil & gas degree programme and contributes to other modules teaching within the School of Engineering and School of Management.

Hamid Reza is research active within the area of Unconventional formations, Hydraulic Fracturing and Clean-up efficiency of Hydraulic Fractures.

Full Profile

Hamid Reza is working on unconventional reservoirs and hydraulic fracturing efficiency. The successful development of unconventional hydrocarbon resources (tight/shale gas and oil reserves) relies on extensive innovative research to improve understanding of the mechanisms in such reservoirs and to design new technologies to improve hydrocarbon recovery.

He spent more than nine years as a Senior Reservoir Engineer working on reservoir modelling and reservoir operation in the oil & gas industry.
