Research Overview

  • Two-phase flow in porous media- application to enhanced oil recovery, carbon sequestration and ground water modelling.
  • Effect of surface roughness and average direction of pores on macroscopic capillary pressure
  • In-situ measurement of contact angles and interfacial curvature by pore scale imaging
  • Application of double-averaged Navier-Stokes equations on fluid flow in porous media

Current Research

Macroscopic Capillary Pressure in Multi-Phase Porous Media Flows

The findings from my PhD project are expected to correct for limitations in capillary pressure and wettability prediction, inaccurate macroscopic capillary pressure and macroscopic relative permeability. These are crucial to understanding oil migration, conventional and enhanced oil recovery, fluid trapping in reservoir rocks amongst others.
