Large-scale numerical simulation of complex reservoirs
King Abdullah University of Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia
.To meet the needs of complex reservoir engineering applications and to compute large-scale
reservoir simulation problems more rapidly, efficiently, and accurately, numerical algorithms and
advanced techniques for large-scale numerical simulation of multi-component flow problems are
needed. Through an interdisciplinary research team combining reservoir engineering, applied
mathematics, and scientific computing, we will make use of the strength of each party to conduct
collaborative research and joint research in mathematical models, numerical methods, parallel
algorithms, hardware acceleration, production forecast, history matching, and digital twins.
Together with colleagues from ADNOC and Chinese Academy of Mathematical and System Sciences, we plan to study a carbonate reservoir whose reservoir data show that it contains intergranular as well as intragranular pores and dissolution pores.
The task of the postdoc researcher is to contribute to the applied mathematics and scientific computing aspects of this interdisciplinary research project. The postdoc researcher will design
numerical algorithms for simulating large-scale multi-component, multi-phase, multi-modal flow in
porous media. These algorithms will encompass various techniques, including multilevel iterative solvers like multigrid and domain decomposition methods, as well as multiscale solvers such as
multiscale finite element methods. Additionally, the efficient iplementation of these algorithms on distributed computer systems is also expected.
Ph.D in flow and deformation of porous media
Technion
Women and men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. A safe return is doubtful. Honor and recognition in the event of success (paraphrased from Shackleton’s Ad).
OK, this is a bit of an exaggeration; there is a 90% chance for a safe return...
We study the coupling between flow and geomechanics, specifically the pore pressure and the porous media deformation, a process known to be a precursor to induced seismicity. We do so by creating an artificial rock that can mimic the characteristics of various rock types, yet it can deform at stresses that are two orders of magnitude smaller than a real rock. Moreover, by matching the refractive index between the saturating fluid and the artificial rock, we overcome its opaque nature, allowing us to image local deformation on the micron scale while measuring the flow and pressure to elucidate the complex coupling between them. We seek a talented experimentalist to measure this coupling under various external stresses (isotropic, anisotropic, and strain). The candidate needs to be willing to enjoy a vibrant group, have the curiosity of a child to learn new concepts, and be stubborn enough to dive into challenging scientific questions.
Humboldt Postdoc Fellowship in Magdeburg
Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg
The scouting program of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation offers the opportunity of postdoctoral fellowships to excellent candidates in the lab of a nominating scout without undergoing the usually time-consuming application procedure. Prof. Evangelos Tsotsas is such a “scout” and looking for an adequate candidate for a research stay of up to two years with his group in Magdeburg, Germany. The group works on chemical engineering applications of porous media and would like to preferentially support in the frame of this activity young female scientists from any country or young scientists from developing countries. However, qualified and motivated candidates of any background should not hesitate to contact us. For more details, please look at the website, or email Evangelos Tsotsas.
