Started my career as a well site Drilling Engineer with Ascom Group Company in Kazakhstan project with HPHT wells 3500 m depth and up to 10K pressure at surface. With the same Company started a project in Sudan as a well site Drilling Engineer with three exploration wells, 3000m depth with difficulties such as hole instability and drilling the well on Nile river. Wells were delivered in time and bellow allocated cost. Another project with Ascom was started in Iraq Kurdistan with drilling of one HPHT exploration well with H2S.
