  Re-evaluation of the Volcanic, Sedimentological and Structural nature of the Scott/Telford Fields within the Central North Sea:A route to extended field life?
  Dr N Schofield, Prof D Jolley, Prof A Hartley
Application Deadline: 1 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The North Sea has provided a highly important resource to the UK and its economy for over the last 50 years. With the basin in overall production decline, it is important to examine ways of prolonging and extended the life of this now mature basin.
  Chaos and fractals in fluid motion
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Grebogi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advection of particles and fields by fluid flows is a problem of great interest for both fundamental physics and engineering applications.
  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.
  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flows
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  Pore scale investigation of geophysical properties in unsaturated porous medium
  Dr Y Zhou
Application Deadline: 5 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pore scale modelling method has been used extensively in evaluation of single phase petrophysical properties (e.g.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  Improved data modelling and interrogation using AI innovation to reduce the environmental impact of oil exploration
