Description of Basin Studies & Petroleum Geoscience

Advertisement

Basin studies and Petroleum Geosciences, focuses on fundamental studies of earth surface processes and sedimentary basins, and their application to petroleum geoscience. Many group members have industrial experience in the petroleum geoscience sector and are actively collaborating with industry on various research projects linked to understanding the structural and sedimentary evolution of sedimentary basins, 3D seismic interpretation and reservoir modelling.

Our research is focused on studies into processes controlling land- and sea-scape evolution, seismic and sequence stratigraphy, sedimentary basin tectonics, clastic and carbonate sedimentology and environmental change. We have developed novel digital outcrop studies and their application to reservoir modelling.

The group has dedicated state-of-the-art facilities for digital outcrop data collection and analysis (including terrestrial laser scanning) and for the interpretation, modelling and visualisation of 3D seismic data. We also have dedicated facilities for numerical modelling, in addition to central University HPC facilities.

The group runs several major industrial consortia including the rifts Analogues project (TRAP) and the North Africa Research Group (NARG)

English Language Requirements

IELTS band : 6.5

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

To study at this university, you have to speak English. We advise you to

take an IELTS test.
