The human's future depends on our capacity to stop emitting CO2 to the atmosphere while keeping growing to reduce poverty and improving the quality of life in developing countries. In this scenario, technologies such as Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) and more efficient O&G production will play a very important role. The derivation of rock properties from high-resolution images (Digital Rock) is a disruptive technology in that it can fundamentally change the way rocks are characterized. Petricore is an international service company and is divided into three divisions; Laboratory Services (LS), Wellsite Services (WS) and Digital Rock Analysis (DRA). Petricore Norway is one of the leaders on developing the Digital Rock Technology.  It is well established that small-scale heterogeneities can have a significant impact on oil recovery processes and on CO2 plume movement and trapping. Digital Rock Analysis can provide detailed descriptions of small-scale heterogeneities. However, these heterogeneities cannot be directly incorporated in dynamic simulation models because of limitations in computer speed. Therefore, the scale-transgressive effects of small-scale heterogeneities in large-scale numerical simulations must be accounted for through upscaling. We are looking for someone to work with us on developing a rigorous multiscale upscaling workflow that incorporates heterogeneity information from DRA coupled with the appropriate flow dynamics to offer more realistic predictions of multiphase flow predictions. As a product developer, you will work closely with our team of researchers on developing upscaling algorithms and solutions which leverage our services and extend DRA products to larger scales. The results of the project will initially be specific to CO2 sequestration. However, the workflow developed will be general and applicable to other multiphase flow applications. The successful candidate must have deep technical understanding and experience working with technologies related to digital rock technology and multiphase flow in porous media. A strong mathematics and scientific programming background are preferred. Candidates must have great communication and technical skills. In our interdisciplinary/multi-cultural teams, you will get the opportunity to work closely with researchers, software engineers, reservoir engineers, geologist and DRA experts.
