  Induced fracture and fluid flow in tight oil reservoirs: viscosity and temperature effects
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Swift, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Bone-metal (brittle-elastic) bond durability and fatigue derived from coupled Acoustic Emission and X-ray Computed Tomography
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Tozzi, Prof G Blunn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Experimental and numerical investigation of methods to dynamically influence the permeability of fractured rock in the near field environment using thermal stress and fluid pressure.
  Dr C McDermott, Dr A Fraser Harris
Application Deadline: 30 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will form part of a larger industry sponsored project developing smart pumping technology capable of delivering controlled location specific fluid pulses to rock.
  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.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
  Novel approaches to geological characterisation of chalk hard grounds in the North Sea
  Prof A Gale, Dr M Fowler, Dr P Reid
Application Deadline: 19 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Professor Andy Gale, Dr Mike Fowler and Dr Paul Charles Reid of Aker BP.
  Source mechanics of fluid driven volcanic Earthquakes
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
