Murtada Elhaj

Murtada imageI am a Ph.D. candidate in Process Engineering under the supervision of prof. Greg F. Naterer and Dr. Syed Imtiaz. My current research focus is on Entropy Generation Minimization (EGM) for Enhancing the recovery factor in offshore reservoirs. Throughout this research, different areas will be covered, which include fluid flow in both porous media and pipelines, thermodynamics, reservoir performance, and well testing.

Research interests

Fluid flow in porous media; reservoir engineering; and reservoir modeling and simulation.
