About Peyman Heidari

Dr. Heidari’s Ph.D. thesis was mainly focused on upscaling of dissolution parameters during fluid injection. Experienced in reactive transport modeling, fluid flow in porous media and core analysis. He developed an understanding of the geochemical reaction system of Marcellus shale through reactive transport modeling of Marcellus shale parent rock transformation into soil. He programmed numerical models capable of simulating three-phase fluid flow in oil and gas reservoirs. He worked on experimental and numerical analysis of WAG, SWAG, Immiscible and Miscible CO2 injection scenarios on a case study for M.Sc. thesis. He has experience in Microbial EOR and water flooding and scenarios to enhance production from fractured reservoirs through natural mechanisms of imbibition and drainage.
