Halliburton’s Soliman Attains SPE Distinguished Membership Status


HOUSTON - Halliburton employee Mohamed Y. Soliman was recently awarded the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ Distinguished Membership award at the SPE ATCE annual conference in New Orleans. Soliman, a chief reservoir engineer in Halliburton’s Completion and Production Division, is also an adjunct professor at the University of Houston.

“SPE presents Distinguished Membership to members who achieve distinction deemed worthy of special recognition, who have attained eminence in the petroleum industry or the academic world, or who have made unusually significant contributions to SPE,” according to a press release issued by the organization. The press release went on to say that only one percent of SPE members are eligible for Distinguished Membership.

Soliman was recognized for his significant, diverse, and consistent contributions to the oil industry technical literature, his leading contributions to diagnostic testing and his service on many SPE committees.

“Each year, SPE honors an elite group of individuals who have extended the boundaries of the profession and of SPE,” said Leo Roodhart, 2009 SPE president. “Future generations of exploration and production professionals will be measured against their contributions and accomplishments. We congratulate Mohamed Soliman for receiving this prestigious international award.”

Soliman has a bachelor’s degree in petroleum engineering with top honors from Cairo University, and master’s and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University. He has written more than 150 technical papers on fracturing, conformance, well test analysis, diagnostic testing and numerical simulation. He holds 16 United States patents and he has several pending.
