Biography

Mustafa Onur is McMan professor and Chairman of the McDougall School of Petroleum Engineering at University of Tulsa. Before joining TU, he was professor of Istanbul Technical University (ITU), Turkey. He also held the Schlumberger Professorial Chair at the Department of Petroleum Engineering at Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP), Malaysia. His research interests include pressure/temperature-transient analysis, enhanced oil recovery methods, reservoir modeling and simulation, nonlinear parameter estimation, and geothermal reservoir engineering. Onur holds a BS degree from the Middle East Technical University in Turkey and MS and PhD degrees from the University of Tulsa, all in petroleum engineering. He has served on the editorial committees of SPE Reservoir Evaluation & Engineering and SPE Journal. He is currently the Associate Editor of SPE Journal. He is the recipient of the 2010 SPE Formation Evaluation Award and a distinguished SPE member.
