Case Summary:

A senior reservoir and completion engineer contacted our law firm to help him establish his significant contributions to the U.S. by filing for an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) visa category. We presented his unique executive background and unprecedented experience necessary to his current and future work at the USCIS.

Upon reviewing his credentials, we found that our client has completed his:

  • Ph.D. in geophysics and has an unparalleled documented record of authorship in his field of endeavor.
  • His work has been published in some of the most prestigious, high-impact journals resulting in at least 15 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 technical report.
  • Moreover, he has already conducted at least 25 reviews for journals to date and his work has been cited by other scholars in numerous published articles as well. According to Google Scholar, his work has been cited a total of 281 times.
  • His study has received funding from the US Department of Energy (DOE). This funding supports projects that “ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental, and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions”.

Furthermore, he has made substantial contributions to the field of geomechanics. Specifically, his specialized research has focused on hydraulic fracturing. His research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding geosciences. His strong background in reservoir engineering has allowed his research to be particularly original, with applications such as oil and gas extraction, underground carbon storage, and geothermal energy applications.

  • He is particularly well-known for creating a novel method to predict stress in unconventional oil and gas reservoirs.

His case was further supported by four recommendation letters that he obtained from his fellow experts in the field, corroborating how his work has helped set the course for much subsequent research in this area. Therefore, one of the recommenders stated:

“[Client] is a highly influential geomechanics researcher operating at the forefront of his field, and his work is extremely important for both subsurface energy production and carbon reduction, which is significant for the global fight against climate change. His numerous publications have been widely cited by fellow experts in the field, indicating the significance of his work. I am pleased to recommend the continuation of his excellent research in the United States.”

The totality of this evidence, thus shows that our client has been internationally recognized and fully qualified as an outstanding researcher in the field of geomechanics.

Our team’s efforts successfully paid off in conveying to the USCIS that our client’s essential experience in the field of expertise has afforded him vast knowledge and formidable skills, which are a significant asset to any research setting and thus set him apart as a vital researcher. We would like to congratulate him on securing his EB1B case approval, which was adjudicated in only 7 days instead of 9-12 months (Thanks to Premium Processing). We wish him to receive his green card as soon as possible.
