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 and a member of the Carbonates and Fractured Reservoir Research groups.
Wider interests include future trends of the oil and gas industry in the wider energy interest. The role of poetry (geopoetics) in communicating geoscience and energy related issues.
