  • Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science Seminar - Distinguished Lecture Series

    Tue, Sep 25, 2018 @ 04:00 PM - 05:20 PM

    Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Professor George J. Moridis, Petroleum Engineering Dept. - Texas A&M University

    Talk Title: Some Recent Studies on Flow and Transport Processes

    Abstract: The seminar covers studies related to present and recent projects on hydrocarbon recovery conducted by the team of G. J. Moridis at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and at the Petroleum Engineering Dept. of Texas A&M University. These investigations focus mainly on unconventional resources and cover the spectrum from fundamental to field-scale studies. The presentation includes discussions (a) on the numerical simulation codes developed by G. Moridis and his team for the solution of complex problems of transport through porous media, accounting for coupled flow, thermal, thermodynamic, geomechanical, chemical and geophysical processes, (b) on the analysis of production from shale gas and shale oil reservoirs, including high-definition numerical studies of the associated coupled flow, thermal and geomechanical system behavior, as well as fundamental laboratory studies exploring the mechanisms of flow in ultra-tight media at nano-scales, (c) on the numerical study of hydraulic fracturing and of its potential environmental impact on shallower groundwater resources, (d) on gas production from a variety of gas hydrate resources, and (e) on proppant transport and emplacement during hydraulic fracturing. Time-permitting, the presentation may include a short discussion on work with NASA on the impact of buried radioactive sources in the Martian subsurface.
