RESEARCH ASSOCIATE / RESEARCH FELLOW

Department : R&D department

Location : Dehradun

Designation : Research Associate / Research Fellow

Job Description :

 

Role & Responsibilities:

1.To understand theoretically the parameters affecting CO2 injection in the reservoir/well

2.To simulate average CO2 concentration and diffusion varying various parameters, like pressure, temperature etc and further simulate using a mathematical model relating the oil-phase swelling with CO2 diffusion coefficient

3.To fabricate simple micro-fluidic device able to handle different fluids (CO2 and oil)

4.To characterize and test the device for various gases and oil with known viscosities and densities, and observe the oil-swelling

5.To test the device for CO2 and oil miscible transport, observe the oil-swelling and determine the optimized parameters to achieve better CO2 diffusion

 

Desired Profile :
