Kelly Amonson

Why did you decide to study your MSc at Heriot-Watt University?

As a geologist in the petroleum industry I was working on projects that utilized geomodelling and reservoir simulation for planning development scenarios and I became interested in learning how to use these tools to better integrate the geology and engineering.

What was your experience of studying your MSc with the Carbonate Reservoirs group at Heriot-Watt University?

Working in the Carbonate Reservoir Group was a great experience in that it challenged me to work on an engineering intensive project while allowing me to incorporate aspects from my geologic background all while getting great mentorship and support.

Can you tell us a bit about what you're currently doing?

I work for an oil and gas exploration and production company in the exploration team evaluating oilsands properties and shale gas plays in Western Canada.

Great mentorship and support.
