  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.
  Hybrid pore-scale modelling of two-phase flow in porous media
  Dr V Niasar
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Hydrocarbons, scales and heavy metals intertwined in colloidal suspensions: challenges and opportunities during cleaning and waste disposal in decommissioning - National Decommissioning Centre
  Dr D Vega-Maza, Dr W Afzal
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
This project aims at developing new cleaning and waste management technologies based on the fundamental science underpinning the stability and properties of slurries containing hydrocarbons, scales and heavy metals.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flow
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round
Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  Multi-Fluids Discontinuous Control Volume – Finite Element Methods(CVFEM) for Subsurface Geothermal Flows
  Dr J Gomes, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round
Immiscible displacement flows have been widely studied in contaminant dispersion in the subsurface (e.g., solute transport to aquifers, radionuclide’s diffusion in nuclear storage, etc) and oil & gas production (e.g., enhanced oil recovery, heavy oil production, etc) applications.
