The group focuses on advancements upstream fluids’ technologies for oil-well applications. With a strong industrial experience as our strength, we intend to develop products and processes for upstream oil and gas service and operator companies. The R & D and technology development work in our team includes experimental, numericla simulation as well as modeling (statistical and machine-learning) approach. Our focus areas are as follows:
1. Drilling and Completion fluids design for high-temperature applications.
2. Slickwater fluid design for Hydraulic fracturing applications.
3. Temperature-stable linear and cross-linked gel design for Hydraulic fracturing applications.
4. Geothermal wellbore desgin and modeling.
5. Enhanced oil recovery (EOR): CO2 / polymer
6. Synthetic gel design for Water-shut-off and Hydraulic fracturing applications.
