Hatem Bajuaifer, Abdullah Alshehri on the Young Technical Professional of the Year and Breakthrough Technological Project of the Year awards, respectively.
We leverage the technology to explore pathways for a lower-carbon future enabling minds to create new solutions and pioneer innovation in the energy sector.
Hatem Bajuaifer, Young Technical Professional of the Year winner
“In my submission, I was talking about three patents and more than 25 publications. My first patent was to increase the efficiency of oil processing and to maximize the hydrocarbon yield.
“The second one was about minimizing H2S (hydrogen sulfide) content and enhancing NGL (natural gas liquid) quality.
“The third patent was to clean the grids in dehydrators and desalters.”
Abdullah Alshehri, Breakthrough Technological Project of the Year winner
“The award that we won today is the Breakthrough Technological Project of the Year. This innovation, or technology, is called FracBots. It’s essentially a wireless micro-sensor network.
“It’s essentially a wireless micro-sensor network that can be injected inside the reservoir to map hydraulic fracturing and the sensitive information that we need to maximize recovery.”
