The NORMS group develops and applies new methods to accurately model complex geological heterogeneities in subsurface reservoirs, and new methods to simulate multiphase flow and transport processes in these models.  Applications of the research are numerous and include prediction of CO2 sequestration, hydrocarbon recovery (including improved and enhanced recovery), groundwater flow, and contaminant transport. The NORMS group combines expertise in numerical modelling from the Applied Modelling and Computation Group (AMCG), and in geological modelling, porous media flow and subsurface applications from the Petroleum Engineering and Rock Mechanics Group (PGE).  This unique combination of expertise has allowed NORMS to make rapid progress in applying leading edge numerical and computational methods to problems of subsurface flow and transport.
