Dr. Seyed Shariatipour

Seyed Shariatipour completed his MSc in Petroleum Engineering at Heriot-Watt Institute of Petroleum Engineering in August 2010. Then, he started his PhD in the same University funded by Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS) and Foundation CMG in November 2010. He joined Teesside University in September 2013 as Senior Lecturer in Reservoir Simulation and was MSc Petroleum Engineering Co-Course Director. In January 2014, he joined Coventry University as Senior Lecturer in Petroleum Reservoir Management, and is MSc Petroleum and Environmental Technology Co-Course Director. He leads Reservoir Engineering group in Flow Measurement and Fluid Mechanics Research Centre at Coventry University.

  • Impact of the uncertainties of the well test data on the hydrocarbons production: To establish whether uncertainties in flow measurements are sufficiently low for the purposes of effective reservoir modelling. Investigate the effect of uncertainties of the flow measurements on the data obtained from the well test analysis. Perform calculations on the effect of the data obtained from the well test analysis on the reservoir engineering calculations (reserve, oil and gas recovery, etc.)
  • Linking outcrop analogue with flow simulation to reduce uncertainty in subsurface carbon capture and storage: an example from the Sherwood Sandstone of the Wessex Basin: Modelling the behaviour of carbon dioxide (CO2) injected into sub-surface reservoirs as part of carbon capture and storage (CCS) strategies is often performed using models that incorporate very limited geological detail, particularly at the subseismic (metre to decametre) scale. Those modelling studies that incorporate varying degrees of geological realism show the inherent risks and uncertainties that can result from neglecting heterogeneity and reservoir–caprock topography along the migration path of an injected CO2 plume.
