Workshop on Porous Media Flows
September 27, 2011 — The Second CFSF workshop on Porous Media Flows begins
on Tuesday, September 27 and concludes on Thursday, September 29, 2011.
All meeting sessions will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Laramie.
This is a free event.
The workshop will have presentations from the research groups that have been funded by the Center for Fundamentals of Subsurface Flow with a short course on homogenization theory and contributed talks.
- Sequestration of greenhouse gas and associated impurities (GGI) in geologic formations, e.g., deep saline aquifers and oil and gas reservoirs. Namely, research activities that aim at improving the current understanding of the underlying phenomena responsible for various GGI geologic storage mechanisms that can be used to develop or improve predictive modeling tools.
- Recovery of natural gas from unconventional reservoirs characterized by low permeability. Namely, research activities that aim at improving the current understanding of permeability distribution, connectivity, and flow pathways that can be used to improve reservoir models and field design.
Seats are still available for this free event and registration is required. The workshop highlights presentations from the center’s research groups and includes a short course on homogenization theory taught by Dr. Jim Douglas, Jr. Please visit http://www.uwyo.edu/cfsf/workshops/workshop-porous-media-flows.html for more information and to register for the workshop.
