University of Bergen's Reservoir Physics emphasizes multiphase flow in porous media, with special focus on oil, gas and water flowing in porous rocks.


Key facts

In particular the study is aimed at enhanced oil recovery (EOR). Students at University of Bergen's Reservoir Physics will obtain information on the state of the art within oil recovery, especially related to EOR on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Emphasis is on understanding the fundamental principles of oil recovery, but also practical approaches are included. Key words for the curriculum are: Core analysis, capillary pressure, relative permeability and wettability. Also real time data processing and natural gas hydrates are parts of the topics in this study.
