Consultant. Clients included : Saudi Aramco to develop a high-resolution sequence stratigraphic framework for the worlds greatest reservoir (Arab-D carbonates) in the worlds largest field (Ghawar Field) and the surrounding area. In addition, he recently completed an investigation into the high-resolution sequence stratigraphy of Miocene alluvial fan to shoreface clastics in the Vienna Basin, Austria and Cretaceous carbonate and Tertiary siliciclastic reservoirs in Venezuela.,
