Rock mechanics and rock physics experiments
I am a geoscientist with several years of experience in oil and gas. I recently joined the University of Oslo (UiO)'s Department of Geoscience to undertake a Ph.D. in Petroleum Geophysics with specific focus in Rock Physics, Reservoir Geophysics and Petroleum Geomechanics.
Prior to the UiO, I completed an MSc in Petroleum Geoscience at the University of Adelaide in South Australia, but my professional career started with Chevron in Thailand in 2002. Here I began working in the Geophysical and geological data management department, and moved successfully into applications analyst, and international company projects.
My future plans include advancing research and technical knowledge to further my career as a Reservoir Geophysicist / Seismic Rock Property Specialist. My wide range of skills from software expertise to theoretical knowledge, interpretations and applications will benefit the field of geophysics in the oil and gas industry.
Working on Seismic Interpretation
Several years' industry experience and educational background together with my current research have enabled me with a range of skills and competencies including:
- Experimental Rock & Fluid Physics and Geomechanics.
- Seismic properties of sands, shales and reservoir fluids.
- Quantitative interpretation (AVO and lithology and fluid prediction).
- Fault seal analysis utilising seismic, well logs and geomechanical data.
- High level of geoscience computing i.e. Landmark suites, Petrel and Hampson-Russell.
- Norwegian Continental Shelf (e.g Barents Sea and North Sea)
My continuing focus is to develop my competencies and take on any challenges. With my positive "can do" attitude, I believe this allows me to achieve any goals. My commitment to both working individually and operating in a team will be a great asset to any organization.
Investigating Hekkingen shale sample for geomechanical testing
I grew up in Buriram, a city in the North Eastern part of Thailand. I love to spend time outside work travelling, having visited many places in Asia, parts of Australia and some of Europe, including London, Denmark, and Paris. This move to Oslo will be the most wonderful chance to live in a very different country, and encounter their climate and culture. Coming from a warm and tropical country, this will make it a challenging and a very rewarding experience for me.
I also enjoy outdoor activities including skiing, cycling, hiking and exploring the countryside as well as spending time inside shopping and movies. Work-life balance is very important.
