About Pore-Scale Modelling at Heriot-Watt University

The Pore-scale Modelling group uses a wide range of innovative modelling techniques to understand the fundamental recovery mechanisms governing multiphase displacements in subsurface reservoirs. Techniques range from advanced pore-scale modelling approaches - including pore reconstruction protocols and the integration of multi-scale pore systems - through core-scale simulation of a variety of SCAL measurements. The modelling work is regularly informed by related experimental activity from several IPE Themes, including micromodel experiments and coreflood data.

Additional scholarship information

Industrial sponsorship

Many of our past students have gained funding from industry sources, both those companies involved in oil exploration and production in their home countries or larger international companies that offer scholarship programs. For example:

  • Nigerian Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF)
  • Bolahak, Kazakhstan
  • Commonwealth Scholarships
  • Chevening scholarships
  • BP
  • Chevron
  • Shell
  • ExxonMobil

There are also a number of Industrial sponsorships available every year to UK and EU students. All eligible applicants (generally EU/UK students) automatically have their CVs or applications sent to participating petroleum companies, who offer a limited number of sponsorships each year to our students, across all three programmes. The number of sponsorships offered will vary depending on the companies' needs and situations, and the quality of the student applicants and are given our after an interview event that takes place during the summer before the course starts.
