The NERC funded GWatt project was coming to an end. We have been studying the Porthtowan fault zone in Cornwall as a reservoir for deep geothermal energy. A final dissemination workshop was held with project partners and industry. Led by Dr. Robin Shail from Camborne School of Mines we also had a final field visit […]
We work at the interface between Geology, Geomechanics, Petrophysics and Geochemistry to solve questions relating to subsurface CO2 storage, geothermal energy, unconventional resources or energy storage. We combine state-of-the-art, advanced and novel laboratory methods with analytical and numerical modelling to amplify the understanding of the opportunities and risks of these technologies to enable an informed […]
