Welcome to IGP Leonardo!

Leonardo Sales has started as a PhD candidate at the Department. Sales holds a bachelor’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from Federal University of Ceará and a master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from University of Campinas, both in Brazil. Leonardo has just started as a PhD student at IGP and is currently working on a project titled «Optimization of subsea layout». The main objective of his project is to develop, evaluate and test methods to design optimal subsea systems that include processing equipment. To this, he will use numerical optimization tools to determine layouts of subsea production systems that maximize value (i.e. increase production, reduce expenses) while fulfilling operational and technical constraints. The PhD position is sponsored by SUBPRO. Welcome leonardo!
