Thorat, R.R. (author)
This thesis was performed in the framework of ErasmusMundus EU-INDIA scholarship programme. The main goal is to elucidate particle enhanced foam flow (surfactant water and nitrogen gas) in porous media near the critical micelle concentration. The thesis is divided in four parts: in the first part the modeling of foam flow is investigated, in the...

Khosrokhavar, R. (author)
The work described in this thesis deals with a variety of aspects related to the storage of carbon dioxide in geological formations. In particular we focus on the transfer between the gas phase to a fluid (liquid) or solid phase. This thesis limits its interest to study the sequestration capacity of CO2 in saline aquifers and more specifically...

In the phase of declining oilfields and at a time when recovering hydrocarbons has becoming more difficult, effective techniques are the key to extract more oil from mature fields. The difficulty of developing effective techniques is often the real obstacle when dealing with heterogeneous formations such as naturally fractured reservoirs, which...

Using conventional production methods, recovery percentages from oil reservoirs range from 5% for difficult oil to 50% for light oil in highly permeable homogeneous reservoirs. To increase the oil recovery factor, enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methods are used. We distinguish EOR that uses chemical methods, (partially) miscible methods and thermal...

Eftekhari, A.A. (author)
This thesis evaluates the possibility of using underground coal gasification with a low CO2 footprint. The thesis consists of two parts. In the first part, by using the concept of exergy, a framework was constructed through which the practicality (feasibility) of an energy conversion/extraction method can be systematically evaluated. This...

The shallow subsurface is an important zone from a social, economical, and environmental point of view. The increased use of the shallow subsurface together with the call for its protection and sustainable exploitation have increased the need for tools to monitor and characterize the subsurface, as well as for an improved understanding of the...

Since industrial revolution, due to the increasing demand of energy, anthropogenic emissions in the atmosphere are constantly growing. The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicted a 57% increase of energy demand from 2004 to 2030 (IEA, 2004) of which, 85% consists of fossil fuels. Actions need to be taken in order to mitigate CO2 emissions...

Areas of research - Petroleum microbiology: Determination of the microbial diversity of oil reservoirs and oil associated ecosystems (wellhead samples and oil field core samples). This research is performed to investigate if microbes can serve as indicators for changing conditions in subsurface environments and if they have a potential use in so...

Salimi, H. (author)
This thesis is concerned with upscaled models for waterflooded naturally fractured reservoirs (NFRs). Naturally fractured petroleum reservoirs provide over 20% of the world’s oil reserves and production. From the fluid-flow point of view, a fractured reservoir is defined as a reservoir in which a number of naturally occurring fractures have a...

The research investigates the possibility of using point cloud data from 3-D terrestrial laser scanning as a basis to characterise discontinuities in exposed rock massed in an automated way. Examples of discontinuities in rock are bedding planes, joints, fractures and schistocity. The characterisation of discontinuities is of importance, since...

Van Hemert, P. (author)
The characteristics of the manometric method are investigated so that it can be used to obtain accurate data of sorption of supercritical gas in coal. Furthermore, data of the sorption of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrogen in coal at in situ conditions have been determined. Accurate data are required to develop a theory that can describe the...

Farajzadeh, R. (author)
The results of this thesis give insight into the (mass)-transfer during flow of gases, especially CO2, in various gas-liquid systems. A number of experiments was performed to investigate the transport phenomena through interfaces with and without surfactant monolayers. The observed phenomena have been incorporated into physical models to predict...

Plug, W.J. (author)
Sequestration of CO2 in aquifers and coal layers is a promising technique to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Considering the reservoir properties, e.g. wettability, heterogeneity and the caprocks sealing capacity, the capillary pressure is an important measure to evaluate the efficiency, the success and the safety of storage applications. In...
