Funding organisationNERC
Funder project referenceNE/J006483/1


NERC follow-on fund grant to develop a demonstrator prototype for forecasting the response of hydrocarbon reservoirs to fluid injection, used to maintain pressure in the reservoir. Part of this effort involves ongoing market research and field trial(s) of the new technology.

Layman's description

The aim is to develop a new software modelling tool to enhance oil and gas recovery from existing fields, extending field life and minimising costs using existing data
