Welcome to SUPRI-C

Our research focuses on the accurate and efficient prediction of compositional and thermal subsurface flow processes and on improving our understanding of their flow physics. We have expertise in physical and mathematical modeling, lab experimentation, and computer simulation and numerical analysis.

The main applications that have our interest are gas injection and in-situ combustion for enhanced oil recovery, and carbon sequestration. We are also active in several related areas including enhanced coal-bed methane and coal combustion. 

The research group is directed by Professors Sally Benson, Margot Gerritsen and Lynn Orr. Detailed information about our research, affiliates program and faculty, staff and students can be found following the links above.
