ABOUT ME

Dr. Emre Artun is an associate professor of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering at Istanbul Technical University (ITU). Prior to his appointment at ITU, he worked as a full-time faculty member at Middle East Technical University, Northern Cyprus Campus, where he was the program chair of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering between 2017-2020. Before his academic appointments, he worked for Quantum Reservoir Impact (QRI) and Chevron Energy Technology Company as a reservoir/simulation engineer. He completed reservoir engineering and simulation studies for hydrocarbon fields in Kazakhstan, Angola, Nigeria, Kuwait, and the United States. He worked on challenging projects and reservoirs including development planning for green fields, waterflooded naturally-fractured carbonates, near-critical gas/condensate reservoirs, sour-gas production/injection, and compartmentalized reservoirs.

Dr. Artun received his Ph.D. Degree from Penn State University, M.S. Degree from West Virginia University, B.Sc. Degree from Middle East Technical University (Turkey), all in petroleum and natural gas engineering. He also holds a graduate minor in computational science from Penn State. His research interests broadly include data analytics and machine learning applications in reservoir management problems.  Dr. Artun applies modern machine learning, data analytics and data-driven modeling techniques to problems such as performance forecasting, screening and optimization of recovery, characterization and resource assessment of hydrocarbon and geothermal resources.

Dr. Artun’s research work has been published as book chapters, in peer-reviewed technical journals and in the proceedings of international/national conferences. He is currently an associate editor of Journal of Natural Gas Science and Engineering. He was a member of the editorial board of International Journal of Oil, Gas, and Coal Technology between 2012-2020. He also has been serving as a technical editor for several technical journals and in various committees and conferences primarily within the Society of Petroleum Engineers. He served as the SPE International Formation Evaluation Award Committee Chairperson in 2019. He is currently a member of the SPE Reservoir Technical Discipline - Advisory Committee.
