Summary of Profile

Fadairo Adesina had both my M.Sc and B.Sc in Petroleum Engineering from University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He worked as a researcher for severe years at Petroleum Technology Development Fund and U.I – Chevron Studies in University of Ibadan, Nigeria. Fadairo is presently working as a lecturer in Covenant University Ota Nigeria, lecturing various courses in petroleum engineering department at all undergraduate levels. He has to his credit more than 18 scientific publications in the area of oilfield scales, thermodynamic modeling of wax, asphaltene deposition, and multiphase flow in pipe phenomena. His research career development is channeled towards operational viable research in different areas of petroleum engineering field, ranging from reservoir to well bore, to the surface production facilities challenges. Some of his research works in progress include: Energy recourse potential of natural gas hydrate and its role in global climate, modeling formation induced by heavy organic deposition.
