Person in charge Prof. Dr. Haszeldine -
Brief description of the organisation The College of Science & Engineering, of which the Geoscience school is a member, is one of the largest science and engineering groupings in the UK. The College is also a key player in European research collaborations, participating in 125 projects in FP 6.

Professor Stuart Haszeldine has 25 years experience working with subsurface information from basin-scale to field-scale in hydrocarbon extraction and in waste disposal. He has worked extensively with oil and gas companies to understand the geochemistry of mineral growth in the subsurface and consequent porosity and permeability change. This has required combinations of techniques from instrumental micro-analysis of stable isotopes to regional basin modeling. Since 2005 he has created the UK’s largest University group examining CO2 storage geology, with a particular focus on natural analogues and seepage processes through overburden.
Dr. McDermott has had several years experience in both the design, build and operation of new innovative experimental equipment for the investigation of flow and transport in fractured porous rock, and in the development of coupled process modelling tools and new methods of approaching addressing reservoir engineering problems.


UEDIN will basically contribute in MUSTANG throughcase study sites of two North Sea natural analogue reservoirs and seal systems. and the experimental and numerical investigation of coupled reactive flow transport and integrity of the cap rock based on the analogue studies.
