  Fracture permeability response to the gas adsorption/desorption process in organic rocks by coupled Hydro–Mechanical modelling
  Dr G Quan, Dr K Wu
Applications accepted all year round
Gas adsorption/desorption is an essential process related to gas transport in fractured organic rocks, such as coals and organic-rich shales.
  Prediction of proppant distribution during hydraulic fracturing process
  Dr M Manzari, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
Shale reservoirs are one of the important unconventional hydrocarbon resources, and play an increasingly significant role among energy resources worldwide.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi, Dr Y Zhou
Applications accepted all year round
Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flow
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round
Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  Multi-Fluids Discontinuous Control Volume – Finite Element Methods(CVFEM) for Subsurface Geothermal Flows
  Dr J Gomes, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round
Immiscible displacement flows have been widely studied in contaminant dispersion in the subsurface (e.g., solute transport to aquifers, radionuclide’s diffusion in nuclear storage, etc) and oil & gas production (e.g., enhanced oil recovery, heavy oil production, etc) applications.
  NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership
We are now accepting applications for PhD projects commencing Autumn 2019 and covering the full breadth of Earth, Environmental and Life Sciences.
  ’Seeing inside flood embankments’ – novel geophysical imaging approaches for assessing the health of safety–critical flood defence infrastructure
  Prof J Chambers, Prof M Kendall, Dr P Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project description. There are many thousands of kilometres of earth embankments within the UK flood defence and canal networks, much of which is aging and displaying increasing levels of failure in response to extreme weather events.
  NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership
We are now accepting applications for PhD projects commencing Autumn 2019 and covering the full breadth of Earth, Environmental and Life Sciences.
  A critical assessment of fault growth models using Machine Learning tools
  Dr T Alves
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Lithological heterogeneities in subsurface units are capable of distributing stresses in distinct ways, leading to the nucleation of faults and fractures in specific stratigraphic intervals.
