  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.
  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.
  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.
  (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.
  Reading the molecular fine print: Ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry and the environmental impact of the Athabasca oil sands industry
  Dr M Barrow, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. State-of-the-art mass spectrometry instrumentation (amongst world-leading). International environmental research.
  What can hydrocarbon fingerprints tell us about fracking in organic-rich shales?
  Prof P S Monks, Prof S Davies
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The accurate estimation of the hydrocarbon content of potential source rocks is increasingly important as unconventional sources of hydrocarbons become economically viable and we look manage of our environment responsibly as we try to meet our energy needs.
  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.
