Ali Abdulwahab Oshaish

Laboratory Engineer, Laboratory Technical Support & Services

A dedicated and self-motivated petroleum engineer with +10 years’ experience, working with technology leaders in the oil and gas industry. My work experience was gained mainly in two areas. I have spent the 1st  4.5 years, after graduation, working with Schlumberger in well logging and wireline services. Then, I have joined Cameron to work for 6 years in the industry of surface production and completion systems. My vision is to exploit the acquired experience and work-related knowledge along with the intellectual curiosity and scientific passion in the research and development sector. My goal is to develop new ideas, improve the current practices and find innovative solutions related to the areas of formation and well integrity evaluations as well as surface completion and well control systems.
