  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.
  Hydraulically fractured reservoirs and optimising EOR processes
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati, Dr M Manzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydraulic fracturing is a method of producing hydrocarbons from shale reservoirs. Understanding the geomechanics of the reservoir is a key factor to predicting the fracture propagation and fluid flow in this type of rocks.
  Application of Nanotechnology in Drilling Engineering
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Production from unconventional hydrocarbon resources, such as shale gas, shale oil, deepwater and arctic reservoirs requires advanced drilling and extraction technologies.
  Hybrid pore-scale modelling of two-phase flow in porous media
  Dr V Niasar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding two-phase flow dynamics in porous media is essential for many applications including petroleum engineering, hydrogeology, contaminant transport in groundwater, and chemical engineering industry.
  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.
  Hydrodynamics of Magnetic Responsive Foams
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiphase flow systems such as foams contribute considerably to the world economy and have a wide range of applications from food, medical and fire-fighting to environmental treatment, mineral processing and oil and gas industries.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flows
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  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.
  Numerical modelling and design of geothermal heat recovery from subsurface systems
  Dr M Babaei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the geothermal energy technology, this is a common practice to drill a doublet (i.e. an injection and production well pair) system.
  Porous Media for a Green World
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable use of soil and water resources is crucial to preserve healthy terrestrial ecosystems and maintaining food security.
