University of Tulsa Professor of Petroleum Engineering Albert C. Reynolds Jr. was awarded SPE/AIME Honorary Membership in the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE)/American Institute of Mining Engineers (AIME) at the Society of Petroleum Engineers Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition in Amsterdam.
Reynolds has made significant contributions to the theory and practice of assisted history matching, quantifications of uncertainty in future reservoir performance predictions, and closed-loop reservoir management and pressure transient analysis. He has served as a faculty member in the TU College of Engineering and Natural Sciences for more than 40 years.
“I am grateful to the graduate students who have journeyed from near and far to the University of Tulsa to conduct research with me,” Reynolds said. “Their intelligence, dedication and enthusiasm for research has provided me inspiration on a daily basis. With the utmost candor, I start that this award and the five other SPE Awards that I have received truly belong, in part, to each and every one of them.”
SPE and its parent organization, American Institute of Mining Engineers, recognizes a select group of members annually for their professional achievements and contributions to industry and society as well as their efforts to advance petroleum technology. SPE serves more than 124,000 members worldwide as a key resource for technical knowledge in the oil and gas exploration and production industry.
