  Advanced NDT for Future Oil & Gas Inspection
  Dr C Macleod, Prof S.G. Pierce
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description (maximum 300 words). Baker Hughes GE are the world’s first and only fullstream Oil & Gas company, with the capability, portfolio, technology and the people to radically transform the oil and gas industry and deliver unparalleled improvement in industrial yield for their customers.
  In-situ reduction reduction of greenhouse gases from the Athabasca oil sands tailings ponds: detailed insights using ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr M Barrow, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. State-of-the-art mass spectrometry instrumentation (amongst world-leading). International environmental research.
  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.
  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.
  Assessing the applicability of Artificial Intelligence in the Environmental Impact Assessment process – a case study of oil and gas projects
  Dr B Anifowose
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project undertakes an empirical evaluation of AI and machine learning application to specific EIA operating principles for selected oil and gas projects.
  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.
  Caprock and overburden characterisation: avoiding leakage of CO2 from CCS sites
  Prof RH Worden, Prof D Faulkner, Prof K Taylor, Dr P Armitage
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to produce unusual data to characterise the caprock and overburden to CCS sites in the UK and beyond. CCS is an essential piece of the technical jigsaw required to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
  Oil Drilling Process Condition Detection and Prediction based on Real-time Dynamic Electrical Resistivity Tomography
  Research Group: Applied Computing
  Dr Q Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil drilling is an essential process for Petroleum engineering and it is a complex time-variant process with multi-operational points.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Conversion of carbon dioxide into fuels for energy storage.
  Dr C.A. Ponce-de-Leon-Albarran, Dr L. Wang
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is currently 411 parts per million (ppm) and increases 2 ppm/year possibly due to fossil fuel consumption, deforestation, as well as natural processes contributing to the greenhouse effect such as global warming.
