Steve Ehrenberg grew up in Los Angeles, where he attended Occidental College and then UCLA. He is a geologist with main focus on reservoir quality.

  • 1981 to 1985 he worked at Shell’s Bellaire Research Center in Houston.
  • 1985 to 2008 he did sandstone and carbonate reservoir studies at Statoil in Stavanger.
  • 2008 to 2010 he worked for Panterra Geoconsultants in The Netherlands.
  • 2010 to 2013 he was the Shell Chair in Carbonate Geosciences at Sultan Qaboos University in Muscat.
  • He joined The Petroleum Institute in August 2013.

Steve has published around 50 articles in technical journals and books.

  • PGEG511 Carbonate Reservoir Petrology
