  Application of High Frequency Waves to Improve Petroleum Production from Low Energy Reservoirs
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
In many oil wells the natural energy associated with oil is not strong enough to cause flow into the production facilities. In such cases, some form of artificial lift should supplement natural energy.
  Cleaning and waste management during Oil and Gas decommissioning: destabilisation of colloidal suspensions
  Dr D Vega-Maza, Dr A Syed
Applications accepted all year round
Cleaning of oil and gas facilities and management of waste streams during decommissioning require a fundamental understanding of the stability and interactions of gels, foams, emulsions and sludge between them and other materials.
  Comprehensive investigation of the chemical flooding EOR in natural rocks
  Dr J Vinogradov, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round
Chemical flooding is a promising method of EOR in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. It is widely accepted that presence of chemicals in rock pore space results in alteration of interfacial tension between brine and hydrocarbons and rock wettability alteration.
  LNG sloshing and Leidenfrost droplet dynamics – modelling gas-cushioned liquid-solid impacts with phase change
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round
The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
  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.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round
Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Surface complexation modelling of the zeta potential at oil-brine and brine- rock interfaces: the application to wettability characterisation and EOR via controlled salinity waterflooding
  Dr J Vinogradov, Dr D Vega-Maza
Applications accepted all year round
Controlled salinity waterflooding is a promising method of EOR in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. The incremental oil recovery by the controlled salinity waterflooding yields up to 40% of oil originally in place to be recovered in addition to initial primary waterflooding.
  De-risking unconventional hydrocarbon exploration through novel biogeochemical approaches: towards a systematic understanding of organic matter processes in the subsurface and their impact on the environment
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Prof T Wagner, Dr S Flynn, Dr E Hough, Dr R Pereira
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Shale gas is a major new energy source but is yet to be commercially exploited in Europe. Depending on how this opportunity develops, the new source of gas could contribute to decarbonising of energy with the potential to support the transition to a localised hydrogen economy.
  Numerical simulation of Deflagration, Detonation and DDT in large scale inhomogeneous reactive mixtures
  Dr A Heidari, Dr S Dembele, Dr K Volkov
Applications accepted all year round
Demand for energy and petrochemical products has been on the raise in recent decades leading to huge production, transportation and storage infrastructures all around the world.
  Design and development of new non-threaded drill pipe connector
  Dr N Faisal, Dr J Njuguna
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Fully-funded MRes Studentship. (Reference ENG18-NF). School of Engineering, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen. Closing Date. Monday 7th January 2019.
