Professional Experience:
Dr. Takacs graduated with honors at the Petroleum Engineering Department in 1970. During his tenure at the department he took part in artificial lift projects, e.g. analyzed the conditions of gas lifted wells in the Algyo field, helped to design the first Hungarian-made API-monogrammed pumping unit. His teaching assignments include Visiting Professorships at Texas Tech University, Lubbock, USA 1988-89, and at the Mining University of Leoben, Austria in 1990 and 1995. Between 2007 and 2010 Dr. Takacs headed the Petroleum Engineering program at the Petroleum Institute in Abu Dhabi, UAE. In 1995/96 he was selected SPE Distinguished Lecturer, was Outstanding Technical Editor of the SPE journal “Production and Facilities” 1992-2003 and chaired the Artificial Lift TIG (Technical Interest Group) of SPE in 1997-2003. He is Technical Editor of the journal SPE Production and Operations from 2009. Dr. Takacs started the SPE Hungarian Section in 1992 and acted as its first Chairman from 1992-1994, acting as Program Chairman 1994-2007, was on the Editorial Board of the national journal Köolaj és Földgáz 1987-2007. He wrote five books and more than 90 technical papers and has taught various short courses in Libya, Mexico, Argentina, Indonesia, UAE, Romania, Malaysia, Oman, India and Austria; and is a well-known consultant and instructor on production engineering and artificial lift topics. Dr. Takacs heads the Petroleum Engineering Department since 1995 and was appointed Full Professor in 1997.
