Energy Geosystems Group

We provide unprecedent physics-based engineering solutions for subsurface energy resource recovery and geo-storage with reduced environmental and economic costs that have a decisive impact on the Kingdom and the world

About Us

Continuing hydrocarbon production at high rates requires fundamental and applied research that addresses flow—the flow of liquids, gases and dissolved chemical compounds through multiscale, fractured reservoirs with mixed rock wettability.  The subtleties of such flow can only be captured by experiment and theories that illuminate the coupled thermo-, hydro-, chemo-, and mechanical (THCM) effects in fluid flow and fluid/rock interactions.  Given this context, ANPERC’s and EGG’s raison d’etre—flow—translates into a unique multidisciplinary, collaborative learning and research effort, enabled by the unique set of research skills and infrastructure of KAUST
