  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Microbial chassis engineering for next generation hydrocarbon biofuels manufacturing
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr H Toogood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The development of economically viable microbial biofuels is a consequence of global concerns about reducing carbon emissions, dwindling fossil fuel supply and the development of cost effective renewable and sustainable bio-based strategies.
  Tracing environmental impacts associated with hydrocarbon production with novel geochemical techniques
  Dr Z Zhou
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
With recent government green light for Lancashire fracking, concerns have arisen over the potential environmental impacts associated with drilling and shale gas production.
  Advanced fractal modelling of heterogeneous and anisotropic geological hydrocarbon reservoirs
  Dr P Lorinczi, Prof P Glover
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The modern oil and gas industry is refocussing its efforts. Most of the large and simple conventional reservoirs have now been found and exploited.
  What can hydrocarbon fingerprints tell us about fracking in organic-rich shales?
  Prof P S Monks, Prof S Davies
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The accurate estimation of the hydrocarbon content of potential source rocks is increasingly important as unconventional sources of hydrocarbons become economically viable and we look manage of our environment responsibly as we try to meet our energy needs.
  Formulation of Novel Drilling Fluid for Deep Water and Unconventional Hydrocarbon Reservoirs
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
Since production from conventional, easy-to-produce, hydrocarbon reserves has started to decline, extraction of unconventional resources has then become the focus of oil and gas industry.
  De-risking unconventional hydrocarbon exploration through novel biogeochemical approaches: towards a systematic understanding of organic matter processes in the subsurface and their impact on the environment
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Prof T Wagner, Dr S Flynn, Dr E Hough, Dr R Pereira
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Shale gas is a major new energy source but is yet to be commercially exploited in Europe. Depending on how this opportunity develops, the new source of gas could contribute to decarbonising of energy with the potential to support the transition to a localised hydrogen economy.
  A critical assessment of fault growth models using Machine Learning tools
  Dr T Alves
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Lithological heterogeneities in subsurface units are capable of distributing stresses in distinct ways, leading to the nucleation of faults and fractures in specific stratigraphic intervals.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi, Dr Y Zhou
Applications accepted all year round
Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Experimental study and data mining of microbial enhanced oil recovery processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round
Enhanced oil recovery processes have been developing fast over the last 2 decades to improve both the economics and efficiency of hydrocarbon recovery.
  Surface complexation modelling of the zeta potential at oil-brine and brine- rock interfaces: the application to wettability characterisation and EOR via controlled salinity waterflooding
  Dr J Vinogradov, Dr D Vega-Maza
Applications accepted all year round
Controlled salinity waterflooding is a promising method of EOR in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. The incremental oil recovery by the controlled salinity waterflooding yields up to 40% of oil originally in place to be recovered in addition to initial primary waterflooding.
