Research interests

Petroleum Geoengineering Numerical well testing Carbonates Oil Industry Sustainability Personality Long term research interests involve integration of reservoir geoscience, petrophysics, geophysics and reservoir engineering with particular focus on static dynamic integration and recent focus on Carbonates. Patrick is Co-Director of the International Centre for Carbonate Reservoirs. Wider interests include future trends of the oil and gas industry in the wider energy interest. The role of personality in subsurface teams is a current research interest.
