Djebbar Tiab served as a Professor of petroleum engineering at the University of Oklahoma for 37 years. Author or co-author of over 250 technical papers, one textbook, Petrophysics and three research books titled “Productivity Equations for Oil Wells”, “Petroleum Reservoir Characterization – Interwell Connectivity”, published in 2009 by VDM Publishing House, “Analytical Solutions to Productivity And Pressure Transient Equations” published by VDM & LAP Lambert Academic Publishing AG& Co., August 2010.

He received the prestigious 1995 SPE Distinguished Achievement Award for Petroleum Engineering Faculty. The citation read: “He is recognized for his role in student development and his excellence in classroom instruction. He pioneered the pressure derivative technique of well testing and has contributed considerable understanding to petrophysics and reservoir engineering through his research and writing.” Dr. Tiab has been elected in October 2002 to the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences as a member because of “His outstanding work in petroleum Engineering”, and was awarded the Kapista gold Medal of Honor for “His outstanding contributions to the field of engineering.” He received the technical 2003 SPE Formation Evaluation Award for “Outstanding achievements in petrophysics and reservoir engineering.” Dr. Tiab received (November 2013) the Africa Education Leadership “Best Professor in Petroleum Engineering” Award.
