Reservoir Engineering

Achieving a sustainable energy future is a major present-day challenge in which fossil fuels are predicted to play a dominant role over decades. In order to address a sustainable energy supply, developments and targets in the areas of renewable energies and fossil fuels must be coupled and balanced.

Reservoir Engineering is a key discipline to drive advances in subsurface technologies in order to improve the balance between energy production and environment impact through R&D.

In this context, the Reservoir Engineering Group aims to provide best possible education, to further develop the field of reservoir engineering and to tackle the energy-supply challenge and related topics by cooperating with the public sector and energy companies. We focus on economically feasible and environmentally friendly hydrocarbon recovery methods, gas injection for energy storage (power-to-gas) and sequestration (CCS).
