Dr Prashant Jadhawar has more than 17 years’ work experience of teaching (13 years) plus oil and gas industry (4 years) in UK, Germany, Australia and India, with exerptise in Enhanced Oil & Gas Recovery, CO2 sequestration combined with EOR/EGR, Reservoir Modelling and Simulation, Reservoir fluid characterization/PVT phase behaviour and flow assurance (hydrate, wax and asphaltenes). He has published around 20 technical papers and written several technical reports. Over the years, he taught numerous courses including Reservoir Engineering, Reservoir Simulation, PE Reservoir fluid properties/ thermodynamics, Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), Surface Production Systems. Prior to the University of Aberdeen, Prashant had been a Senior reservoir Engineer EOR (R&D) at Wintershall Holding GmBH, Germany.
Dr Prashant Jadhawar has about 10 years' programme leadership experience in the UK and in India. He designed and developed/established a petroleum engineering programme during his tenure at the University of Portsmouth, UK (Programme Leadership: January 2011 to January 2014) while liaising with the Society of Petroleum Engineers (as a SPE faculty advisor), and oil and gas industries in the UK (through in-house SPE industry-guest lecture series, field visits, industry software/laboratory equipment resource etc.). Prashant had also been a Lecturer in Petroleum Engineering and a Programme Leader for the post-graduate diploma in Piping Design and Engineering for 6.5 years (1997-2003) at the Maharashtra Institute of Technology (MIT), Pune, India.
Prashant served as an academic programme reviewer of the undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Petroleum Engineering at Heriot-Watt University (2012) and London South Bank University (2012). He is a member of the academic advisor committee in petroleum engineering at the Commonwealth commission, UK. He is expert reviewer/referee of the international scientific journals including Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering, American Chemical Society (ACS) journals. Prashant has also served at the various conference/workshop committees (SPE, Praxis global etc.), national and international seminars. He delivered number of invited talks at workshops, received SPE recognition award while serving as a SPE faculty advisor, fellowships/scholarships (UG/MPhil/PhD studies: India, UK and Australia).
