Dr. Ali AlSumaiti is an Assistant Professor of Petroleum Engineering at the Petroleum Institute (PI) based in Abu Dhabi. He is currently involved in developing several State-of-Art petroleum engineering labs ranging from core preparation to IOR/EOR in the new PI Research Center (PIRC) sponsored by ADNOC. He also serves as the Upstream Research coordinator in the Research and Development office.
Dr. AlSumaiti’s main research interest is in the area of experimental and numerical modeling of IOR/EOR methods with special focus on natural fracture reservoirs. He served on several technical and organizing committees for many local and international conferences and workshops, including ADIPEC. He is a board member of the Abu Dhabi SPE chapter and a reviewer in SPE journal.
