Personal profile

Research interests

Heat and mass transfer in wellbores and porous media Advanced well performance monitoring and analysis Integrative interpretation of downhole data for multiphase flow-metering Intelligent well and field design and performance optimisation Research: Khafiz Muradov is working within the research team “Intelligent Well & Field Systems Technology “ on a range of diverse projects related, in particular concentrating on Sub-project “Temperature Modelling and Real-time Flow Rate Allocation in Wells with Advanced Completion”. The sub-project is devoted to analysis, modelling and interpretation of advanced well monitored data; and further usage of the resulting information to optimize intelligent field production performance. He continues developing the following novel methods: Temperature and Pressure Transient Analysis in multi-zone, intelligent wells Prediction of temperature in wells with advanced completion, based on the developed heat and mass transfer model of a complex axial system Real-time multiphase soft-metering in advanced, multi-zone wells based on the pressure and temperature measurements Real-time intelligent well clean-up monitoring and optimisation strategy Asymptotic solution of the pressure calculation problem in advanced wellsThese methods have been successfully tested on synthetic and real field cases. The methodology has been proposed to a group of operating and service companies.

Biography

Khafiz Muradov got his B.Sc. (2002) and first M.Sc. (2004) degrees in physics from the renowned, research oriented Novosibirsk State University, Russia. He majored in Nuclear and Fundamental Particles Physics. During his study he was working part-time in Budker Research Institute of Nuclear Physics (2001-2004) as a junior researcher, conducting experimental and theoretical research related to the charged particles detection systems. After getting his second M.Sc. degree in Petroleum Engineering from Heriot-Watt University in 2005 he worked (2005-2007) as a Senior Expert in Tyumen Petroleum Research Centre, Russia. His responsibilities included well log and well test planning, analysis and interpretation, and reservoir engineering studies. He later got Ph.D. degree in Petroleum Engineering from Heriot-Watt University in 2010 for his project “Temperature Modelling and Real-time Flow Rate Allocation in Wells with Advanced Completion”. He continues his intelligent well technology related research, and teaching/tutoring as a Lecturer in Production Modelling, at the Institute of Petroleum Engineering of Heriot-Watt University.
