Fracture propagation and simulation, integrating geomechanics, geology and reservoir engineering to simulate hydraulic and natural fractures
Gang Hui is working on his PhD in Petroleum Engineering with Prof. Chen at the University of Calgary.
He received his MSc (2011) in Oilfield Development Engineering at Graduate School of RIPED,Petrhochina, and his B-Eng (2008) in Petroleum Engineering at the China University of Geoscience. Hui previously worked for 6 years in RIPED (CNPC) as a reservoir geology engineer, concentrating on fractures characterization and reservoir description for low permeability reservoirs. His current research is focused on fracture propagation and simulation, integrating geomechanics, geology and reservoir engineering to simulate hydraulic and natural fractures. He would like to move into R&D work in this area after graduation.
Hui enjoys an active lifestyle of basketball, badminton and swimming.
