  Foam Flow in Porous Media: From Fundamentals to Applications
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During oil production from underground oil reservoirs, only a fraction of oil tends to be extracted during the primary recovery phase, prior to the oil reservoir becoming too depleted to push additional oil out naturally.
  Effects of dispersants on mitigating environmental impacts of marine oil pollution: insights from microbiological, chemical and field investigations.
  Dr B McKew, Dr R Holland, Dr T J McGenity
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Oil spills are one of the most challenging threats to the marine environment that can have long-. term impacts on fisheries, the economy and society.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  Development of low molecular weight organogelators
  Dr J Bear
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Low Molecular Weight Organogelators (LMWOs) are small molecules, which are able to gel organic species through intermolecular supra-assembly.[1-4] This property makes them very useful for oil spill remediation and clean-up, as you can apply the LMWO to floating oil slicks; gel the oil and scoop it out of the water.
  New carbohydrate-based surfactants from Australian Canola oil
  Dr B Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 29 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to utilise Australian-produced canola oil and other carbohydrate renewable feedstock for the synthesis of new surfactants with a range of key applications as detergents, quaternary esters, and emulsifiers.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Improved data modelling and interrogation using AI innovation to reduce the environmental impact of oil exploration
  Dr O Akanyeti
Application Deadline: 17 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hafren Scientific is a geological consultancy company, operating in the oil and gas sector, to improve the placement, efficiency and productivity of wells.
  Repurposing an API for oil drilling simulation software
  Dr C gatzidis, Dr W Tang
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is to be carried out in collaboration and with the support of a Bournemouth-based company called Drilling Systems (https://www.drillingsystems.com/).
  Induced fracture and fluid flow in tight oil reservoirs: viscosity and temperature effects
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Swift, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
