Welcome to the

Carbonate Reservoir Group

The Carbonate Reservoir Group at the Institute of Petroleum Engineering is world-renowned for its applied and fundamental research on improving the predictability of hydrocarbon recovery from carbonate reservoirs.




Open postions

We are currently recruiting two new postdoctoral researchers, in collaboration with the Lyell Centre, to conduct experimental and numerical studies of CO2 migration through mudstones as part of EU-funded DETECT project, which is carried out in collaboration with Shell Global Solutions, RWTH Aachen, and Risktec. Both positions are for 36 months. Further information can be found here and here.

Researchers with own funding

If you are interested in working with us and can provide your own funding or if you are planning to apply for a scholarship (e.g. government, national research council, European Union), then please do not hesitate to contact Sebastian Geiger or our senior staff.

MSc student projects at IPE

Every year we supervise a significant number of MSc students at the Institute of Petroleum Engineering from all three MSc programmes (PE, REM, PG) on projcets related to carbonate reservoirs. Interested MSc students should contact any of our senior staff to discuss possiple individual projects.
