  • MCERI Research Group has immediate openings for Postdoctoral Candidates 
 Date posted: Oct 9, 2018
MCERI Group was recently Awarded  $1.2 MM from the U.S. Department of Energy. The goal of this project is to develop and demonstrate a rapid and cost-effective methodology for spatio-temporal tracking of CO2 plumes during geologic sequestration using joint tomographic inversion of seismic data and distributed pressure and temperature measurements. Key elements of our methodology are: (a) a computationally efficient approach to pressure and temperature propagation calculations using the Fast Marching Method (FMM), (b) analysis of time lapse seismic data using a novel ‘seismic onset time’ approach to detect fluid front propagation , (c) data assimilation and uncertainty assessment via joint Bayesian inversion of pressure, temperature and time lapse seismic data, and (d) field validation of the methodology using data collected from ongoing field projects involving CO2 utilization for enhanced oil recovery and frequent time lapse seismic monitoring. The project team is led by Texas A&M University and includes Battelle as a subcontractor with support from Shell, Anadarko, Chevron and JX Nippon.

  • Dr. Akhil Datta-Gupta, Regents Professor and L.F. Peterson '36 Chair, Received Honorary Membership from the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) recently honored Dr. Akhil Datta-Gupta with SPE Honorary Membership at SPE’s Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition held 9-11 October 2017 in San Antonio, TX. Dr. Datta-Gupta was recognized for his seminal contribution in high resolution fluid flow simulation using streamlines and dynamic data integration leading to improved reservoir characterization, reservoir management and field performance assessment.
