  Application of High Frequency Waves to Improve Petroleum Production from Low Energy Reservoirs
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
In many oil wells the natural energy associated with oil is not strong enough to cause flow into the production facilities. In such cases, some form of artificial lift should supplement natural energy.
  Surface-based Modelling of Tensorial Fluid Flow in Fractured Systems – Application to Modelling Subsurface Energy from Petroleum and Geothermal Resources
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Dr M Bentley
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Fluid flow in the subsurface occurs in both porous rock matrices and in open fractures. Matrix flow is conventionally modelled in 3D cellular grids through which fluid flow is modelled in finite difference simulators.
  Development and Evolution of the West Greenland Passive Continental Margin
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Prof J Underhill, Dr R Jamieson
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Passive continental margins record the rifting, breakup and thermal subsidence of divergent margins and therefore their study is a key components in developing our understanding of large scale tectonic processes.
  Phenolic compounds removal from the petroleum industries wastewater
  Research Group: Advanced Materials Engineering
  Dr P Pimenidou
Applications accepted all year round
Phenolic compounds (phenols) found in the wastewater of various industries (oil refineries, petrochemicals, ceramic, steel, coal conversion, phenolic, pharmaceuticals) can result in significant health and environmental problems.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
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.
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Geological Realism in Seismic Stratigraphy Integration into Reservoir Property Prediction with Multiple-Point Geostatistics
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Dr V Demyanov
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Locating and producing hydrocarbons in an economically viable and sustainable way has become more challenging than ever in a volatile oil price climate and challenging exploration and development environments.
  Precipitation and Deposition of Diamondoids in Production Systems
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Dr A Chapoy, Dr R Burgass
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Diamondoids, C4n+6H4n+12 are saturated hydrocarbons consisting of connected cyclohexane rings (C6H12) which have diamond like structure.
  Developing new environmentally-friendly solutions for well plugging and abandonment (well P&A)
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round
Hydrocarbon leakage from subsurface environments has been a critical concern for groundwater resources and atmospheric pollutions.
