• A team of LSU professors, led by Christopher D. White, an associate professor in the Department of Petroleum Engineering and the Center for Computation & Technology, is researching ways to improve modeling capabilities to better characterize, predict, and analyze pressure and rate behavior in deepwater wells. The researchers were awarded a grant from Shell for $300,000 over the course of three years for the project, "High-Rate Flow in Gravel Packed Wells: Completion Characterization and Pressure Transient Behavior." The project will use imaging resources at the Center for Advanced Microstructures & Devices, or CAMD, and Argonne National Lab, and is especially relevant to oil and gas development in the Gulf of Mexico.
