PROFILE:
Robello Samuel is a Chief Technical Advisor in the Drilling division of Halliburton and working
with Halliburton since 1998. He is currently a technical and engineering lead for a well
planning engineering applications for drilling and completions operations and responsible for
world-wide technical support in the area of drilling engineering. He has more than twenty two
years of multi-disciplinary experience in domestic and international oil/gas drilling and
completion operations, management, consulting, software development and teaching and one
year creditable work experience in a manufacturing industry. His skills include practical and
theoretical background in on-shore and off-shore well engineering, design, cost estimates,
supervision of drilling and completion operations, personnel and technical review; project
management; and creative establishment of project relationships through partnering and
innovation. He has been an educator in USA, Venezuela, Mexico, China and India and an
adjunct Professor at the University of Houston for the past nine years teaching Drilling and
Well Completions courses. He has published more than 90 technical papers, reports, books.
He is presently serving as a Review Chairman on the Journal of Drilling and Completions and
Journal of Petroleum Sciences and Engineering Editorial Review Committees, and co-chairman
of SPE Multilateral Technical Interest Group. Also reviewer for projects of Natural Sciences and
Engineering Research Council of Canada. Samuels unique blend of skills as a field engineer,
researcher and teacher helped him to author four drilling books and a forthcoming book
