Dear Sir or Madam: A talented reservoir engineer with unique experience spanning from strategic pla nning and performance forecasting to start-up operations, secondary oil recovery , and team training, I have played a primary role in major organizations realizi ng the maximum benefit and returns with the least risks and losses with wells ar ound the world. Providing a 360-degree perspective of issues vital to both short - and long-term success, I am an expert at ensuring the safety, integrity, and s tability of reservoir operations in diverse climates. The author of numerous jou rnal and manual publications, I am skilled at translating complex technical conc epts into understandable terms in order to eliminate ambiguity, and ensure all p arties are united on common best practices and goals. Some examples of highlights throughout my career are: * Mitigating potentially critical situations for the Encore Acquisition Company, serving as the primary consultant and manager on multiple reservoirs, water flo oding, and CO flooding projects. * Providing the Encore Acquisition Company with robust recommendations for field development based on production characteristics. * Ensuring the highest level of integrity and stability of reservoir operations for the IHS Energy Group, creating a program to perform multiphase calculations of pressure drops between wells' bottoms and surface pressure. * Playing a major role in mitigating a critical fuel shortage in Edo, Nigeria, f ormulating an effective fuel distribution strategy. * Aiding the expansion of business and opportunities for the Edo Government, neg otiating a joint agreement with the Gilli Gilli Refinery Company. Confident that I will be a valuable addition to your team, I am enclosing my res ume, which contains more detailed information on my professional history. Please review it and contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your reply. Sincerely,

Muhammad Aruna, PhD
