Our laboratory research deals with chemical and CO2-EOR for conventional and unconventional reservoirs in general. We also perform detailed polymer characterization for conventional and heavy oil recovery. Our laboratory is located in NREF, School of Mining and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Alberta.
Our reservoir simulation team deals with state and parameter estimation for assisted history matching, dynamic real-time optimization, and proxy models. CO2 Sequestration, DFN modeling, fracture reservoir characterization and underground Coal Gasification projects are also of prime importance for our research group with other collaborators.
