A Visionary in Petroleum Engineering:

As a Petroleum Engineering Specialist at Aramco, a Distinguished Lecturer for SPE 2020-21, and a prolific inventor with a rich portfolio of patents filed at the US Patent Office, Arukhe has propelled himself to the forefront of the industry. His illustrious career, spanning over two decades, is adorned with a multitude of patents that reflect his innovative spirit and forward-thinking prowess that advance the field of petroleum engineering.

Notably, James achieved the highest GPA and had the honor of winning an individual Hackathon at the University of Texas at Austin’s Post Graduate Program (PGP) in Data Science and Business Analytics in November 2022. This early distinction set another stage in a career characterized by groundbreaking contributions to petroleum engineering.

Innovative Contributions to Operational Excellence:

Ranging from optimizing downhole inflow control valves to devising methods for chemically reviving dead wells, Arukhe’s inventions embody his relentless pursuit of operational excellence and sustainability in the oil and gas sector. These patents are not mere attestations of his technical acumen but are significant contributions to enhancing operational efficiencies, safety, and predictive maintenance in the industry.

Global Expertise, Local Roots:

Arukhe’s professional journey started in the heart of Nigeria, gradually unfurling across the globe with pivotal roles in behemoths like Saudi Aramco, Shell, Chevron, Exxon Mobil, and Petro-Canada. His international sojourns in Saudi Arabia, the UK, Canada, and Nigeria have not only honed his expertise but have also imbued him with a global perspective, across diverse cultural and operational landscapes, invaluable in today’s interconnected world.

Production Optimization Maestro:

His role as a Petroleum Engineering Specialist at Saudi Aramco epitomizes his adeptness in production optimization, steering several field development projects to fruition, and leading projects that surpassed production targets. Arukhe’s tenure saw the genesis and successful implementation of untraditional yet pragmatic solutions in Production and Operations, a hallmark of his innovative approach.

His academic laurels, including an MBA, MSc, and Ph.D., form the bedrock of his deep-seated understanding of the complex interplay between engineering principles, management strategies, and innovative thinking. Moreover, James’s admission into the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society in 2013, graduating summa cum laude and being named Valedictorian at the 2015 University of Phoenix Commencement Ceremony in Yuma, Arizona, highlights his exceptional academic and leadership skills.

A Legacy of Giving Back:

As the founder of the Petroleum & Chemical Engineering Education Society (PCEES), Arukhe has created a platform for nurturing the next generation of engineers and innovators. His social and global responsibility initiatives, underscored by his extensive volunteer work with United Way and Rotary International, resonate with his belief in giving back to the community.

James’s contributions have not gone unrecognized, with multiple Saudi Aramco Senior Vice President Awards to his name. These accolades, in addition to his academic and professional achievements, underline a career dedicated to innovation, leadership, and the advancement of the oil and gas industry.

FRN vs Ali Bello: Court Shifts trial till March 14, warns EFCC to be diligent in prosecution

 

The Court, while granting accelerated hearing, threatened to close the charges against the defendants if the prosecution does not do due dilligence.

Justice James Omotoso, who issued the warning on Friday, asked the anti-graft agency to always get all its witnesses and exhibits ready on adjourned dates so as to avoid delay.

He warned that he would not tolerate lackadaisical attitude from any of the parties in the matter while shifting resumption of trial to March 14, 15, 20 and 21 .

Justice Omotoso also directed the defendants to keep further objections against the trial at abeyance, especially to the final address stage.

The Judge, who made this observation while ruling in a motion on notice filed by Suleiman Daudu challenging the amended charges, however, refused to quash the 17-count amended charge, involving alleged money laundering.

The court also declined to transfer the trial of the two defendants to Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, in line with the argument of the 2nd defendant through his counsel, Mr Jimoh Nureni, SAN, that since the alleged offence was committed in Lokoja, the proper and appropriate venue for trial should be at the Federal High Court in Lokoja.

The judge noted that the Federal High Court in Nigeria was one and that trial of any matter could be prosecuted in any of its divisions.
