  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.
  PhD Studentship NSIRC 229 – Prediction of Step Wise Cracking due to Hydrogen attack in steel vessels using finite element stress analysis and acoustic emission.
  Dr S Soua
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Corrosion has been prevalent in our lives since ancient times. It can be caused by many chemicals and substances such as hydrogen.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Pore-scale 3D Imaging of Hydrogen Storage in Reservoir Rocks
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr K Singh, Prof S Geiger, Dr A Busch
Application Deadline: 6 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subsurface hydrogen storage can be a viable option to account for fluctuations in the global energy demand from renewable resources.
  Numerical modelling and design of geothermal heat recovery from subsurface systems
  Dr M Babaei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the geothermal energy technology, this is a common practice to drill a doublet (i.e. an injection and production well pair) system.
  Environmentally Safe Operation of Pipelines via the Use of Surface-Active Compounds
  Prof A Striolo
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Prof N Allan, Prof A J Mulholland
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Zeolites are vitally important materials used as catalysts and adsorbents in the processing or renewable, oil and gas. The origin of the unique behaviour of zeolites, whether as selective adsorbents or as catalysts for particular transformations.
