Dmitry Koroteev

Assistant Professor
Center for Hydrocarbon Recovery

Dmitry Koroteev leads “Petroleum Data Science” research team.

Dmitry graduated from the Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU) with a Master’s degree in Molecular Physics in 2006 and continued his studies there as a PhD student, obtaining his PhD degree in Chemical Physics in 2008.  While still a student, he joined the Russian division of Schlumberger, where he successfully built his career from Research Associate through Research Program Manager for Digital Rock & Fluid theme to Project Manager and Acting Research Director of Production Intelligence Department  over the course of nine years. His research focused on the following areas: enhanced oil recovery, 3D imaging and image processing, reservoir characterization and stimulation, fluid and rock physics, complex flow modeling, and, most recently, predictive Big Data analytics.

In 2014 – 2015 Dmitry worked as Head of Department of New Technologies at Gazprom Neft (before returning to Schlumberger as Acting Research Director). Here, he significantly enhanced his managerial experience, managing a portfolio of 50+ projects related to development and implementation of new technologies, as well as participating in development of a long-term technology strategy of the corporation.

Dmitry’s teaching and mentoring experience includes a lecturing on “rGeostatistics and Reservoir Simulation” at Skoltech, practical course on experiments in classical mechanics for first year students of MSU, supervision of several MS students from Skoltech and MIPT, mentoring of multiple research interns at Schlumberger (MS and PhD students from MSU and MIPT).
