David Semwogerere holds a BSc in electrical engineering (honors, 2012) from Makerere University in Uganda.
In 2012, he started work as a junior well testing and completions engineer at Total. His work involved well test design and execution and working with well engineering modeling and drilling parameter software. He was also a nightshift well test supervisor for Total in the upper west Nile exploration and appraisal campaign on four workover rigs.
Semwogerere later moved to the China National Offshore Oil Company in 2014 as a well completion engineer in the Kingfisher Albertine exploration region on Lake Albert. He designed well testing operation programs and hydrocarbon storage tank-farm surface facilities, and was responsible for construction execution.
He continues to build his skills and knowledge in downhole DST/TCP tools, multi-zone completions, clean outs, sand control, flow assurance with PCP, fluid selection, surface well testing both in production and injection and well plug and abandonments. Semwogerere intends to continue pursuing a petroleum-engineering career after completing his master’s degree in petroleum geoscience and production.
During his free time, he enjoys travelling, photography, and meeting new people.
