I am Dr AKM Eahsanul Haque, a Senior
Lecturer at the Geoscience Department, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP). My
journey in the realm of geosciences, spanning over 15 years, has been marked by
significant contributions in reservoir characterisation, 3D subsurface
geomodelling, and geoscience project management. My journey began in
Weatherford and later on in Chevron Texaco USA, where I served as a Development
Geoscientist and had the privilege of being part of the “Horizon” program. This
opportunity allowed me to explore real-time reservoir data from around the
globe. I also gained valuable experience as an LWD Log Analyst at Weatherford.
My areas of specialization encompass a
wide range of topics, including Reservoir Characterization, Structural
Framework Modeling, Paleo-depositional Modeling, Petrophysical Modeling,
Reservoir Geomodeling, Reservoir modeling and simulation, Seismic Sequence
Stratigraphy, Depositional Environmental Interpretation, Sequence Stratigraphy,
Geodynamics, and Basin Analysis. I have worked extensively in various regions
such as the Taranaki Basin-New Zealand, Bengal Basin-Bangladesh, and GOM-USA.
In addition to my extensive experience
and contributions in the field of geosciences, I am also part of a team that is
currently developing a software called OrbStrata. This software is designed for
seismic interpretation, a crucial aspect of petroleum geoscience and reservoir
characterization. OrbStrata aims to provide a comprehensive platform for
interpreting seismic data, enabling geoscientists to make more accurate
predictions about the subsurface. The development of this software is a
testament to my commitment to pushing the boundaries of geoscience and
fostering innovation in the field.
Recently, my work was recognised by the
prestigious Asia Awards, powered by the World Research Congress. I was bestowed
with the 'Most Promising Scientist Award' in the Asia's Research &
Scientist & Professor & Teaching Academic Awards category. This award
is a testament to my unwavering commitment, originality, and remarkable
abilities that have significantly impacted communities and beyond.
The Asia Awards, a highly esteemed
institution, celebrates extraordinary accomplishments across diverse
disciplines within the Asian region. Being nominated and subsequently selected
for this prestigious award is a reflection of my notable achievements in
My scholarly trajectory has been
characterised by a commitment to quality and progression of the discipline. My
dedication is evident through my involvement in cooperative research endeavours
on an international scale, as well as my advisory positions. The Asia Awards
committee has taken notice of my contributions, bestowing upon me both
attention and acknowledgment.
On receiving the award, I expressed,
"I am deeply honoured to receive this award. I extend my gratitude to Asia
Awards for acknowledging the importance of geosciences in advancing societies.
It's a shared achievement, and I am proud to represent UTP on this platform.
This recognition is a testament to the collaborative efforts and dedication of
the entire UTP Geoscience Department. Throughout my career in the oil and gas
industry, I have witnessed the transformative power of geosciences. This award
motivates me to continue pushing boundaries and fostering innovation in the
This award not only commemorates my
previous accomplishments but also foresees the potentially impactful
contributions I am expected to make in the future, enhancing and advancing
crucial domains within UTP Faculty of Science and Information Technology. The
"Most Promising Scientist of Asia" Award signifies the recognition of
my commitment, enthusiasm, and steadfast dedication to achieving high standards
in the field of geosciences.
In conclusion, my journey is a testament
to my dedication, hard work, and passion for geosciences. My achievements serve
as an inspiration for many, and my future contributions are eagerly anticipated
in the realm of geosciences. My story is a shining example of how perseverance
and dedication can lead to recognition and success.
