Case Summary:

A Chinese Senior Geoscientist who has been working persistently in the field of petroleum geology contacted North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) for filing his EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition. Despite receiving a Request for Evidence (RFE) during the process, our client’s case was granted approval by the USCIS in less than 2 months due to the diligent work of our legal team in drafting a strong response.

Our client holds a Ph.D. in Geology and is currently working as a Senior Geoscientist in a private firm. His research focuses on stratigraphy and 3D facies architecture of shallow marine, fluvial and paralic depositional systems. To be more specific, his research result offers petroleum geologists and engineers a thorough understanding of the architecture of these systems and data critical for characterizing hydrocarbon reservoirs for the benefit of the petroleum industry in the US. His research over the years has led to 24 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 thesis with 135 citations at the time of filing. He has also reviewed 26 articles for prestigious journals in his field.

To further strengthen the petition, we encouraged our client to contact experts in his field for recommendation letters. Here is how one of the recommenders described our client and his research: “[Clietn]’s efforts led to substantial increases in the accuracy of interpreting and modeling deltaic systems, which is helpful for geologists and engineers involved in oil and gas production… ” .

Although USCIS issued an RFE, our team successfully tackled it with all the needed documents in an efficient manner. We thank him for choosing us to represent his I-140 EB-1B case and wish him the best in his future career.
