Personal profile



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. 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 the Reservoir Engineering group in Flow Measurement and Fluid Mechanics Research Centre at Coventry University.


Research Interests

Reservoir simulation; Fluid flow in porous media; CO2 enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and caprock integrity; CO2 storage in saline aquifers and depleted oil and gas reservoirs

Vision Statement

My main research interest is numerical simulation of CO2 storage in deep saline formations and depleted hydrocarbon reservoirs. In addition, a part of my research interest is around developing ideas for more effective and secure storage of CO2 in subsurface geological formation, including depleted hydrocarbon fields and saline aquifers. I presented a novel approach for CO2 injection to minimizing vertical migration of CO2 in the saline aquifers that could improve security of CO2 storage. I am also interested in fluid flow in porous media and CO2 enhances oil recovery (EOR).
