Shuiquan Li

Shuiquan Li - Research Scientist
Reservoir Modeler

Shuiquan Li, grew up in Sichuan province, southwest of China.  After earning a Bachelor and Master degree in petroleum engineering from Southwest Petroleum University (SWPU),  Shuiquan joined  the department of  petroleum engineering of SWPU as a lecture in 1988. Shuiquan teached drilling engineering courses and did researches in deviated well and horizontal well drillings.  After 1996, Shuiquan had focused his research on reservoir fluid flows coupling with geomechanics in fractured reservoirs for 5 years, and developed a simulator of three phase fluid flow through deformable formations with dual porosity and dual permeability by using finite element method (FEM). Shuiquan developed algorithms of the fractured reservoir permeability upscaling based on dynamic fluid flow with finite boundary element method and domain parameter upscaling methods. In 2000, Shuiquan jointed Wave Propagation Lab (WPL) of Peking University, worked on the seismic anisotropy in fractured reservoirs, stress effects on seismic velocities and reservoir permeability in fractured reservoirs. In 2003 Shuiquan joined E&P Tech. Inc. (The predecessor of both LandOcean Energy Service Co. Ltd and GeoReservoir Research Inc. currently) as a research scientist where his research topics include streamline simulations of multiphase fluid flow, Geomechanics applications related to fractures, edge detections by using seismic data, seismic signal processing, seismic attributes algorithms , rock property inverse, effective permeability response in fractured reservoirs, well logs analysis, and seismic interpretations in carbonate reservoirs, Karst reservoirs, reservoir morphology detections. Before jointed University of Wyoming in 2007, Shuiquan spend one year in Ciudad Del Carmen of Mexico, and worked on seismic delineation of Cantarell reservoir. Before jointed EORI from 2008 to 2011, as a researcher in geology & geophysics department of University of Wyoming, Shuiquan worked on geological models and compositional simulations in Green River basin of Wyoming for CO2 sequestrations in the Nugget sandstone.

In 2011, Shuiquan joined EORI as a reservoir modeler. His area of interest includes seismic interpretations of reservoirs, geological model buildings with integrated data and reservoir simulations, reservoir engineering, petrophysical analysis.
