About the Author
Hoss Belyadi is currently a Senior Subsurface Engineer at EQT Corporations specializing in production and completions optimization, completions and reservoir modeling, machine learning, and project evaluation. Mr. Belyadi is also an adjunct faculty member at Marietta College and Saint Francis University teaching Natural Gas Engineering, Enhanced Oil Recovery, and Hydraulic Fracture Stimulation Design. Previously he was an adjunct professor at West Virginia University teaching Hydraulic Frac Stimulation Design and a Senior Reservoir Engineer at CNX Resources Corporation. Mr. Belyadi has been a member of Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) since 2006 and has authored and coauthored several SPE papers on reservoir/completions optimization, production enhancement, and machine learning. Hoss earned his BS and MS, both in Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering from West Virginia University. Dr. Fathi is currently an Associate Professor of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering at West Virginia University. He has received 2014 (AIME) Rossiter W. Raymond Memorial Award and SPE outstanding Technical Editor Award in 2013. Ebrahim has authored several peer reviewed journal publications and conference papers. He has been heavily involved in research on various aspects of unconventional reservoir developments, including machine learning, multi-stage hydraulic fracturing of horizontal wells, and prediction of fault reactivation. His research has also included laboratory measurement and characterization of fluid transport and storage in organic-rich shales, innovative research developing new-generation of flow simulators for unconventional reservoirs, and the area of computational fluid dynamics. He earned a BS in Exploration of Mining Engineering and a MS in Exploration of Petroleum Engineering, both from Tehran University, a PhD and Post-doc in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Oklahoma. Fatemeh Belyadi is currently the founder and CEO of Integrated Smart Data Solutions, LLC. Dr. Belyadi was formerly an Assistant Professor of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering at West Virginia University, Exterran Energy Solution Company, and Kish Oil and Gas Company (KOGC) where she specialized in process equipment, gas plant, refinery reactor design, reservoir management, and machine learning. SPE publishes a large portion of her professional activities, where she regularly attends and presents papers in SPE conferences. Her research interests include multi-phase fluid flow, wellbore integrity, designing and managing drilling fluids, machine learning, and enhanced oil recovery especially from stripper wells. Dr. Belyadi received her BS, MS, and PhD in Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering from West Virginia University.
