Petroleum Geosciences Engineering

Petroleum Geoscience is an important expertise area within the oil industry. It is fundamental to understand the processes that control the formation of reservoirs, their location and internal properties, and ultimately the amount of recoverable hydrocarbon reserves.

Our research focuses on understanding the geologic processes that control the petroleum system at the regional and reservoir scale, and on geologic to production time scales. We also conduct research to understand the impact of data and interpretation uncertainties on evaluations and decisions, and the psychological and judgmental aspects of decision-making. Specific areas of research are:

  • Regional to reservoir scale subsurface interpretation
  • Structural geology
  • Provenance
  • Basin modelling
  • Geostatistics
  • Decision and risk analysis
