BiographyEdit

Dr. Yehya was born in Baghdad, Iraq on August 2, 1955 to parents from the northern part of Iraq of Mosul. He gained a B.S.M.E. in Petroleum Engineering, M.S.M.E., and PhD in Reservoir and Simulation at the University of Baghdad. He was fluent in Arabic, Spanish, and English.

Following his graduation from the University of Baghdad, he worked (1977-1980) as a petroleum engineer for the Northern Petroleum Organization in Kirkuk, Iraq. His work included training program and field assignment in well logging and well testing.

Dr. Yehya was the President of the Reservoir Engineering Department in the Ministry of Oil of Iraq, before leaving the country to head to Venezuela.

Dr. Yehya became an international face, while becoming part of SPE lecturer.

Dr. Yehya died in Caracas, Venezuela on August 3, 2016.[citation needed]
