Abdulsamed Iddrisu

Petroleum Engineer, Laboratory Technical Support & Services

Mr. Abdulsamed holds a B.Sc. Degree at KFUPM and received his post-graduate professional training (Mud, Cement and Drilling, and Workover Engineering) in the USA and Canada.

He has over 25 yrs. experience in Petroleum Fluids Properties (PVT) Lab, Reservoir Rock Properties Lab, and Drilling Fluids and Cementing Labs, both in teaching and research.

Over the years we have devised a simple, unique, and successful technique (in our teaching Labs) of producing high quality and successful Engineers.

A technique that targets first-year freshmen students, is based on reducing complex scientific and engineering laws and theories taught in the classroom to simple, practical, day-to-day experience

In the Labs. In short to lay a strong and solid engineering foundation in their mindset.
