  Interplays of Compressible Gas, Liquid Phase and Organic Pore Surfaces in Shale Pores, and their Impacts on Shale Gas Production: a Pore-scale Modelling Study
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Dr J Ma
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
The transport behaviours of highly compressible shale gas in presence of a liquid, either as wetting or non-wetting phase, within mechanically weak organic pores are poorly understood although their impacts on shale gas production are believed to be great.
  Advanced methods for shale characterisation
  Dr E Mangano, Prof S Brandani
Applications accepted all year round
Shale gas has been recently recognised as a strategic energy source with the potential to revolutionise the worldwide energy layout and bridge the transition to a low-carbon future.
  Isotopic characterisation of methane and ethane within groundwater aquifers: assessing sources, flow pathways and the impact of shale gas exploration in the Vale of Pickering, UK
  Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is highly controversial with public concerns over environmental impacts, not least the risks to groundwater.
  Tracing environmental impacts associated with hydrocarbon production with novel geochemical techniques
  Dr Z Zhou
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
With recent government green light for Lancashire fracking, concerns have arisen over the potential environmental impacts associated with drilling and shale gas production.
  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.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Anthropogenic geodiversity – how can Scotland’s industrial waste legacy contribute to geodiversity and biodiversity?
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. As recognised in Scotland’s Geodiversity Charter, geodiversity underpins biodiversity and faces pressures from human influence.
  (MERI) Assessment of fugitive methane gas emissions from UK fracking operations using unmanned aerial vehicle surveys and fixed-site monitoring (CASE studentship)
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr G Allen, Dr P Williams, Dr H Ricketts
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
CASE STUDENTSHIP WITH ENVIROTECH LIMITED. Measuring and monitoring greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from industry informs many environmental process studies, ranging from shorter-term assessments of air quality and its impacts on human health, to longer term understanding of climate change.
  (MERI) Pressure dependent permeability of chalk
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr J Mecklenburgh, Prof E Rutter
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
POSSIBLE CASE STUDENTSHIP WITH MAERSK OIL. A significant amount of the hydrocarbon reservoirs in the North Sea are chalk (Megson, 1992).
