Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:
A postdoc position is available The Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (Centre for Oil and Gas – DTU), Technical University of Denmark (DTU), invites applicants for a postdoc position on investigations of oil recovery mechanisms in the context of advanced water flooding. Centre for Oil and Gas – DTU is established by the Danish Underground Consortium and DTU. As part of a national strategy on oil and gas, the research centre is an ambitious, targeted effort to improve recovery of oil and gas from the Danish North Sea. The first of the cross-disciplinary flagship programmes of the centre is advanced water flooding of the Dan, Halfdan, and Kraka oil fields. Responsibilities and tasks The position will be an integrated part of the advanced water flooding and tight reservoir development programmes at the DHRTC with a focus on improving oil recovery in chalk reservoirs in the Danish part of the North Sea. In this context, the candidate is expected work with the team to perform innovative, fundamental, and applied research on: •Chemical analysis of crude oil samples and petroleum fluids •Identification of key trace compounds in petroleum fluids •Investigation of injection fluids for EOR •Rock-fluid exchange processes and geochemistry Water based enhanced oil recovery (EOR) employs different techniques to optimize the flow of oil and to minimize the residual oil left behind by the water flooding of oil reservoirs while gas injection improves recovery by injection of miscible gases. A thorough analysis and characterization of the reservoir fluids is required for optimizing these techniques. A molecular characterization of the crude oil constituents provides the link between well-established models for mixtures of simple molecules and improved models for reservoir fluids that consist of many complex components and ill-defined fractions. The characterization will be based on modern analytical methods including advanced gas and liquid chromatography and high resolution mass spectrometry.Other methods available for petroleum analysis include FTIR, ICP-OES, NMR and SEM. The project will involve work with partner laboratories and with the team in the fluid characterization and recovery processes groups at DHRTC. Application potential The line-of-sight application potential of this project is to assist the screening processes of potential water based recovery methods in the Kraka, Dan, and Halfdan oil fields. Qualifications •Ph.D. degree in analytical, organic or physical chemistry, geochemistry or similar •Exceptional skills in analytical experimental chemistry •Experience with chromatography, ICP-OES, FTIR and other analytical techniques •Experience with scanning electron microscopy is highly relevant but not a requirement •Interest in applied research •Ability to work in a multi-disciplinary environment •Excellent writing and communication skills in English You can read about the scientific basis for the centre’s activities here: http://www.oilgas.dtu.dk/english/Research We offer We offer an interesting and challenging job in an international environment focusing on education, research, scientific advice and innovation, which contribute to enhancing the economy and improving social welfare. We strive for academic excellence, collegial respect and freedom tempered by responsibility. The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is a leading technical university in northern Europe and benchmarks with the best universities in the world. Salary and terms of employment The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed with the relevant union. Workplace and period of employment The period of employment is 1 year. Further information Further information may be obtained from Senior Researcher Karen Feilberg, e-mail: klfedtu.dk.
