Petroleum Engineering Manager, Baker Hughes
Nicolas Leseur is the regional Petroleum Engineering Manager for Baker Hughes, looking after the execution of surface and subsurface reservoir consulting services in MENATI. He holds a master’s degree in Geological Engineering from the E.N.S.G., France, and started his career as a Geomodeller in Canada after that, he later worked with various operators in Bahrain, India, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria and UAE.
Throughout his career, Nicolas held various positions such as Sr. Reservoir Petrophysicist and Development Geologist with a particular emphasis on probabilistic multi-phase flow petrophysics, pore-scale-to-field-scale modelling and multi-variate 3D geostatistical modelling of static and dynamic reservoir properties. Besides its collaboration to various field development plans, prospect generation and the economic evaluation of new ventures, Nicolas’ current interest lies in exploring how the recent advances in machine-learning can jointly be used with physics-based approaches to achieve more precise and accurate geo-predictions.
