  Carbon geological storage: understanding micro-mechanisms of CO2 capillary breakthrough and localized pathways to assess caprock CO2 leakage hazard
  Dr M Pedrotti, Prof A Tarantino
Application Deadline: 21 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of Carbon Capture and Storage will occur at global scale, and considering the amount of CO2 that will be captured and stored underground, long-term leakage of CO2 into the atmosphere is one of the most crucial concerns for CO2 repositories.
  Characterisation of background seismicity in the UK: putting induced seismicity into perspective
  Dr S Pytharouli, Prof R Lunn
Application Deadline: 22 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK has committed to a net zero carbon emission target for 2050. With industry being one of the largest emitters and heating being the most challenging area to decarbonise, technologies such as CO2 capture & storage and geothermal energy will play a crucial role in the transition to a low carbon economy.
  Exploiting thermally and microbially induced carbonate precipitation to improve reservoir storage integrity
  Dr K Dobson, Prof V Phoenix
Application Deadline: 22 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Use of subsurface storage is a key part of the transition towards a low carbon energy system, allowing for both reduction of existing atmospheric CO2 though carbon capture & storage, and implementation of other low carbon contributions to the energy mix including compressed air energy storage (CAES) and hydrogen storage.
  From fines migration to filter cake formation and back again: state-of-the-art in situ observation to understand pore scale processes
  Dr K Dobson
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use the latest 4D (3D + time) imaging methods to capture the porosity networks within the geological samples, and then track flow, and the transport of the suspended fine particles through that pore network.
  Machine learning for human reliability and interaction with intelligent systems
  Prof E Patelli
Application Deadline: 26 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The present research proposes to develop an innovative approach to construct an calibrate a model for calculating the human error probability using data extracted from existing major accident investigation reports.
  Modelling uncertainties in fracture models: From micro to field scale
  Dr J Roberts
Application Deadline: 22 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fracture data are used to populate geological models which can inform decision making on reservoir properties, rock strength, seal integrity, and anticipated fluid flow.
  Restoring Life and Function to Oil-Impacted and Remediated Soils
  Dr C Switzer, Dr C W Knapp
Application Deadline: 22 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oil industry’s legacy of contamination around the world requires long-term remediation and restoration. Low carbon processes such as smouldering remediation offer the opportunity to achieve significant progress with remediation; however, ecosystem restoration after remediation requires further study.
  Understanding Hydrate Formation in Porous Rock for Enhanced Geothermal Systems Applications
  Dr A Hamilton, Dr K Johnston
Application Deadline: 22 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An enhanced geothermal system (EGS) is a renewable energy technology that extracts energy from a naturally occurring heat source.
