I'm that kid who loves the smell of road tar, gets excited at seeing oil the color of the sunset, and enjoys putting together a good development plan. 

About me

My name is Islin Munisteri. I studied Petroleum Engineering at Colorado School of Mines. I have worked in the development phase of billion barrel oilfields in the Gulf of Mexico, including  Thunderhorse, Mars and Mad Dog at BP. 

Previously, I have had reservoir engineering experience working in tight gas, including East Texas and Arkoma Basins. I spent a summer out in Gillette, Wyoming working coalbed methane in the Powder River Basin

I enjoy doing reservoir simulation, material balance, pressure transient analysis, and have a special place in my heart for decline curve analysis. Well planning, surveillance planning, and depletion planning all go into support the rate and reserve forecast.

In my free time, I am launching Creating Potential, a 501(c)3 nonprofit focused on introducing STEM to middle schoolers through college freshmen, by using a hands-on approach of site visits, internships and externships. I also enjoy writing with the Society of Petroleum Engineers and leading with the Society of Women Engineers
