  Synthesis and Modelling of Robust Processes for Desalination of Shale-gas Produced Water
  Dr S Soltani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Shale gas extraction via hydraulic fracking is a technique in which gas is extracted from the shale layers of rock under the ground.
  Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT): Geoscience and its Role in the Low Carbon Energy Transition (2020 start) - Predicting CO2 permeation through shale rocks (ENG1356)
  Dr S Rigby
Application Deadline: 27 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. The use of CO2 to displace methane from unconventional reservoirs, like gas shales, offers the potential for simultaneous improved methane recovery and CO2 storage.
  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.
  Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT): Geoscience and its Role in the Low Carbon Energy Transition: Impact of CO2 permeation on inter-layers and reservoir cap-rock sealing efficiency (ENG1354)
  Dr S Rigby
Application Deadline: 27 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

CO2 sequestration and storage offers the potential to manage the transition to fully non-carbon energy by allowing the continued use of fossil fuels while new technologies are developed, but with heavily reduced or net zero atmospheric emissions.
  Study a Funded PhD at Nottingham

With access to world-class facilities and having the opportunity to work alongside leading scholars, Nottingham is the perfect place to study your postgraduate research degree.
  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.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
