  Assessing the applicability of Artificial Intelligence in the Environmental Impact Assessment process – a case study of oil and gas projects
  Dr B Anifowose
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project undertakes an empirical evaluation of AI and machine learning application to specific EIA operating principles for selected oil and gas projects.
  A new metering and data fusion method for wet gas flow
  Dr JJ Jia
Application Deadline: 15 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wet gas is any gas with a small amount of liquid present. Wet gas flow metering is becoming increasingly important in many industrial sectors, like oil and gas.
  Investigating Long-term Effects of Seawater on Subsea Composite Properties
  Prof M Kashtalyan, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past 20 years, the use of composite materials in the oil and gas industry has seen a slower uptake subsea than in topside applications.
  Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for subsea applications
  Dr T Thevar, Dr K Nakkeeran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a widely used technique to obtain the elemental constituents of a sample. The process uses a short pulse of focused laser light to evaporate a minute volume of a target substance by highly localized heating to temperatures greater than 5000 K.
  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.
  Prediction for stray alternating current (AC) induced corrosion in oil/gas pipes in close proximity to high-voltage transmission lines and railways
  Dr K Tang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In comparison to stray direct current (DC) induced corrosion which is a long-recognized engineering challenge, stray alternating current (AC) induced corrosion was more recently reported.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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.
  Low-field NMR studies to probe motion and dynamics in rock pore structures
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantification of transport and dynamics in rock pore structures is essential for understanding, optimising and enhancing oil and gas recovery as well as assess the capacity and effectiveness for CO2 storage.
  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.
  Optimising Energy Well Plug and Abandonment through Data Analytics and Modelling
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr A Cahill, Dr M Haghighat Sefat
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past century the petroleum industry has met the vast majority of global energy demand and continues to do so despite a recent and continuing drive towards de-carbonization (Rockström et al., 2017).
  Characterisation of Manufacturing Defects in Composite Pipes
  Prof J Njuguna, Dr N Faisal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Funded by a leading composite pipe manufacturer and National Institute of Manufacturing Scotland. Robert Gordon University offers this PhD studentship with up to £15,000 available p.a.
  QUADRAT DTP: New methods for the ’visualisation’ of dynamic and multi-dimensional data in Earth and environmental systems
  Dr C Bond, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digitalisation and large, multi-dimensional, dynamic data are now the main stay of Earth and Environmental Science, but how we visualise, handle, analyse and make decisions from these datasets is still a significant challenge.
  Marine risers: experimental damage detection, monitoring and numerical modelling using digital twins
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr D Van der A, Prof E Pavlovskaia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine risers are critical components of any offshore oil and gas production operations linking subsea field developments with production and drilling equipment atop fixed or floating facilities.
  Modelling of joining technologies for novel metal matrix composites for offshore applications
  Prof I Guz, Prof M Kashtalyan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal matrix composites (MMCs) present remarkable properties by combining the properties of the metal matrix and of ceramic reinforcement.
