The Natural Resources Geoscience and Engineering (NRGE) section focuses on the extraction of energy and related resources from the subsurface coupled with minimisation of environmental impact. Research in NRGE includes petroleum geoscience and engineering, carbon capture and storage, and geothermal energy production, and broadly encompasses the field of subsurface fluid flow and transport.
Our research covers all length scales from the nano-metre to the tens or hundreds of km and ranges from the fundamental to the very applied, encompassing laboratory investigations, field work and mathematical analyses as computational methods and investigations.
You can find out more about our research portfolio through the links to our various research groups below.
