• On 2 and 3 October, IFP Énergies nouvelles (IFPEN) participated in the 34th edition of the annual days organized in Paris by Evolen on the theme "Energies: build a responsible future". Every year, this event brings together the players in the oil, gas, para-petroleum and renewable energy industries to discuss the major developments in these sectors.

 Carla.CastilloProgram Supervisor Master in Reservoir Geoscience and Engineering


Carla Castillo graduated from Central University of Venezuela with an Engineering degree in Petroleum Engineering in 2002. She was awarded a Master Degree in Management and Economics of Energy and the Environment by the Scuola Enrico Mattei of Eni Corporate University in 2003.

She joined Petrobras Energia Venezuela in 2004, beginning her professional career as a production engineer. Her duties included onsite operational supervision for wells completed with artificial lift systems as well as snubbing operations supervision and follow up.


One year later, she started working as a reservoir engineer. Her responsibilities were mainly focused on production forecast, decline analysis, and reserves estimation. She was also part of the multidisciplinary group responsible for the wells production performance monitoring, and was involved in the planning and supervision of well testing, cased hole logging and PVT sampling operations.


In 2007 she joined Ypergas (Venezuelan joint venture owned in 69.5% by Total Oil and Gas) as a monitoring reservoir engineer, principally dedicated to well testing and cased hole logging operations design, planning, and supervision. In 2010, she was designated senior reservoir engineer, performing sensitivities analysis based on dynamic reservoir simulation, long-term reserves estimates, and delivering the reservoir production profiles required for the field development plan.


From 2013 to 2015, she worked for Total E&P in France. She was part of different reservoir integrated studies teams for Africa and Middle East fields. Some of her tasks included field dynamic synthesis, well tests matching using reservoir simulation, experimental design for uncertainties analysis.


Since 2016, she works at IFP School as reservoir engineering lecturer. She is in charge of the reservoir module for the Petroleum Engineering and Project Development program and the Reservoir Simulation course for the Reservoir Engineering and Geoscience program besides teaching in several reservoir engineering courses.


She is an Ashtanga yoga student and practitioner, avid reader, enthusiast photographer, and eager traveler.
