Li, K.

Profile

Kai Li is a Postdoc researcher (2021-12 until 2024-6), working in CEMENTEGRITY ACT3 Project, to study cracking in cement sheath and formation of micro-annuli between casing and cement under thermal cycling and shocks in CCS wells. The project is funded by CLIMIT, RVO, and BEIS, under the ACT3 program (https://ife.no/en/project/cementegrity/).

As part of Joint Industry Project (JIP) on Foam for Enhanced Oil Recovery at Technology University of Delft, Kai’s doctoral research (2018-2 until 2021-11) focused on a few fundamental aspects of foam injection in naturally fractured reservoirs. The project was funded by Shell, Equion, Engie, ConocoPhillips and PEMEX.

Kai obtained his MSc. degree in Petroleum Engineering and Geosciences, at TUDelft (2014-9 until 2016-8).
Kai worked by Wireline logging, Schlumberger (2011-7 until 2014.5).
Kai obtained his MSc. in Petroleum Engineering and B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in China University of Petroleum, Beijing (2004-9 until 2011-6).

 

Educational activities

Kai coordinates and teaches MSc. course Field Development Project (AES2009) from 2018-9 until 2020-10.
Field Development Project is a 6-week key-course for Master students of Reservoir engineering.
This course requires that students to understand the knowledge of multiple disciplines.
Kai gives lectures on reservoir simulation, economics, and sensitivity study.
