Natural Resources Geoscience & Engineering
The Natural Resources Geoscience and Engineering (NRGE, pronounced “energy”) section is a grouping of staff and PhD students whose research is related to the extraction of energy from the natural world whilst minimising the environmental impact of that extraction. This includes the more traditional fields of petroleum geoscience and engineering as well as focusing increasingly on more renewable technologies such as carbon capture and storage and geothermal energy as we transition towards a zero-pollution future.
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.
