Mohamed Yousef Soliman is a professor and the former chairperson of the department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas Tech University. After working for Halliburton for 32 years, he joined Texas Tech in January 2011. He obtained his bachelor's degree in petroleum engineering from Cairo University in 1971. Having completed his bachelor's degree he came to the United States to continue higher education. He received his masters and doctorate degrees, both in Petroleum engineering, from Stanford University in 1975 and 1978 His M. S. Thesis was "Rheological Properties of Emulsion Flowing Through Capillary Tubes Under Turbulent Conditions,"; his Ph.D. thesis, "Numerical Modeling of Thermal Recovery Processes."
He is the author or co-author of over 180 technical papers, almost all of which are in the field of Petroleum engineering and Oil industry. Additionally he is credited with 20 inventions.
Soliman is a specialist in r hydraulic fracturing and production engineering. He holds 21 patents on Hydraulic fracturing operations and analysis, testing and conformance applications, and is an author or co-author of over 170 technical papers and articles in areas of fracturing, reservoir engineering, well test analysis, conformance, and numerical simulation.
He has written chapters in World Oil's Handbook of Horizontal Drilling and Completion Technology, the text Well Construction, and the SPE monograph Well Test Analysis of Hydraulically Fractured Wells. He has authored several books for internal use at Halliburton, including Stimulation and Reservoir Engineering Aspects of Horizontal Wells, Well Test Analysis, Hydraulic Fracturing, and chapters in Conformance, Stimulation, and FracPac. He is a distinguished member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
