Teaching and Research

Main courses taught at NTNU:

  • TPG4112 Geomechanics & Fluid Flow in Porous Media (Part of basic course)
  • TPG4185 Formation Mechanics (Advanced course in petroleum related rock mechanics, with focus on reservoir geomechanics, borehole stability, and sand production)
  • TPG4170 Reservoir Seismics (Rock physics part of advanced course)
  • PG8300 Formation Physics (PhD course on rock physics modelling)

Recent PhDs completed:

  • Haitham Tayseer Alassi (2008) Modeling Reservoir Geomechanics using Discrete Element Method: Application to Reservoir Monitoring
  • Olav Flornes (2005) Stress Dependent Fluid Flow in Porous Rock: Experiments and Network Modelling

Ongoing PhD work:

  • Sergei Gorodkov: Core-Based Stress Estimation
  • Morten Kolstø: Effect of water on Wave Velocities in Shale
  • Glenn Gabrielsen: Operational borehole stability - Field and Laboratory Studies
  • Arnt Grøver: Stress and Stress Interaction in Sedimentary Basins
  • Kjartan Rimstad: Inversion of Rock Physics Relations and Discrete Random Fields (co-supervised with Professor Henning Omre)

Main research interest: Rock physics and rock mechanics for petroleum applications.

  • Stress dependent wave velocities in reservoir and overburden rocks (relation to 4D seismics)
  • Discrete particle modelling of sediment and sedimentary rock behaviour
  • Borehole stability in shale

My research is done in close cooperation with the Formation Physics Department in SINTEF Petroleum Research.
