Assad Ahmed Abdallah Barri

Lecturer, Department of Petroleum Engineering

On September 2021 Assad was hired by the Petroleum Engineering Dept. as a Lecturer assisting the professors with the routine teaching and research assignments.

Formerly, he spent eight years for White Nile Petroleum Operating Co. – one of Sudan’s biggest oil companies, with a role responsible for scheduling service and testing required for oil wells. After that he joint petroleum department at KFUPM as technical research assistant on September 2012 to conduct his mater degree. Then he joined the petroleum department as technical researcher on June 2015. He was part of many research teams.
