A sequential gaussian simulation on a Gocad
Tsolid using GsTL. Reservoir models such as this are studied
in the SCRF group.
Energy Resources Engineering Faculty and graduate students conduct research in the following areas:
- Computational and experimental techniques.
- Modeling resource production, aquifer management, and geological sequestration of greenhouse gases.
- Geothermal energy recovery.
- Natural gas from unconventional sources (deep shales, hydrates, tight gas sands, coal beds).
- Recovery of energy resources from tar sands, heavy oil reservoirs, shales and other nonconventional sources with reduced emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases.
- Integrated energy resource systems.
- Optimization of the efficiency of energy recovery and the minimization of environmental and societal impact.
- Enhanced oil recovery by thermal means.
- Gas injection and the use of chemicals.
- Flow of fluid in pipes.
- Geostatistical reservoir characterization.
- Properties of petroleum fluids.
- Reservoir simulation using computer models.
- Well test analysis.
