Wettability of Rock Surfaces of mature oil fields in view of their posterior use

Wettability of Rock Surfaces of mature oil fields in view of their posterior use

This first study shall give an overall view about the influence of roughness on the interfacial properties, its characterisation and fabrication.

Modelling of reservoir wettability in lab and simulation experiments

Modelling of reservoir wettability in lab and simulation experiments

After primary and secondary recovery, an operator of an oil field will consider methods for tertiary recovery, which requires deep knowledge of all reservoir parameters.

Experimental investigation of in situ polymer viscosity in micromodels

Experimental investigation of in situ polymer viscosity in micromodels

This work's main objective is to understand polymer flow behavior in porous media such as micromodels concerning the pressure drop.

A Fracture Generating Algorithm for Micromodel Design

A Fracture Generating Algorithm for Micromodel Design

In this work the student is supposed to develop an algorithm, that generates fractures by shifting single grains of the initial binary image.

Corrosion in gas pipelines

Corrosion in gas pipelines

In an increasing variety of applications, undefined mixtures of gases, condensates and aqueous phases (e.g. formation water) are transported through pipelines at elevated pressures that are either made of carbon steel or polymers.

Fast Screening of Polymer Solutions for the Application in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)

Fast Screening of Polymer Solutions for the Application in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)

Screening polymer solutions is time consuming when it is conducted in rock core plugs. In order to remedy this issue we utilize microfluidic devices.
