Introducing Agustinus Zandy

Agustinus Zandy is a Research Specialist in Oilfield Operations at the EERC, where he leads efforts related to the design and execution of oil and gas field activities. He collaborates with clients to look for ways to optimize oil recovery and ensure project goals, regulations, and safety requirements are met.

“Many interesting things are happening at the EERC,” Zandy said. “The sky is the limit, which means we can learn a lot of things here, and we can also be innovative in presenting new ideas or inventing something new to meet project goals. Energy technologies are some of the most advanced technologies in the world. We always have an opportunity to invent something new or modify something to be applicable in a specific area. To achieve it, you need to work as a team, brainstorm the idea with others, perfect it, and implement it. Working in energy research is the best place to experience all those phases.”

Zandy's professional interests and expertise include well completion design, production simulation, artificial lift design (gas lift and electric submersible pump), and well-testing operations. He holds a bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesia, and an M.S. degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of North Dakota. His prior work experience includes serving as a Senior Petroleum Engineer at Tiarabumi Petroleum and Medco E&P, Jakarta, Indonesia.

When he’s not at work or in the field, Zandy’s hobbies are swimming, playing badminton, and chess. He is also learning about photography and finds himself “taking pictures of everything” with his cell phone or a camera.

Of his home country, Zandy said, “Indonesia is a beautiful country in the middle of the equator. If you love the summer season, I recommend that you visit Indonesia, because it is summer the entire year round.”
