Arelys Salazar is a Reservoir Engineer at the EERC, where her work focuses on developing geophysical models of the subsurface and running dynamic simulations to determine the long-term fate of produced/injected fluids, including hydrocarbons, CO2 storage, and brine using oil and gas industry simulation software. She holds a M.S. degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Wyoming; a Specialist degree in Integrated Reservoir Management and a B.Sc. degree in Chemistry from the Universidad Central de Venezuela, Caracas, Venezuela. Prior to her position at the EERC, Ms. Salazar served as a Reservoir Engineer at ConocoPhillips and Halliburton Company, Houston, Texas. Ms. Salazar’s principal areas of interest and expertise include reservoir characterization, production forecasting and optimization, full field/pilot development planning, numerical reservoir simulation (compositional, black oil, chemical, thermal), history match, enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technologies, waterflood recovery, laboratory experiment test design and analysis for improved oil recovery (IOR)/EOR processes, research and development, conventional/unconventional resources, and project management.
