Projects

  • Hydrocarbon-seepage and its socio-economic impact: proposed international research collaboration on Geological and geochemical aspects of natural hydrocarbon seepage and its socio-economic impact on anthropogenic spills with Azerbaijan and Kazachstan
  • Resources-oriented innovation: proposed research collaboration on RESources-oriented Innovation processes and STructural Change (RESIST) - future concepts for mining landscapes, with social-, engineering-, business- and natural sciences
  • Gas hydrates: proposed research collaboration on Gas hydrates with RWTH mechanical engineering and RWTH mining engineering
  • Grain coating: A 3-year industry funded research project will establish the effects impact of coats in siliciclastic reservoir rocks on reservoir quality
  • Structural diagenesis: A 3-year industry funded research project will quantifiy the relation of secondary porosity creation related to facies and faults
  • Tight Gas Initiative, until 2012: In a coorperation between six institutes within the School of Geosciences at RWTH Aachen University and industry, we estblished how pore space is cemented and how fluid may migrate through such rocks. We focus on the diagenesis and coatings of tight gas rocks using SEM-BIB, optical microscopy and cathodoluminescence, and on the distribution, geometry and evolution of pores and pore throats. RPR submitted the final report in 2012
