  • Working Fluids
    • Focus on geochemistry of CO2-water mixtures
    • Fracture-fluid interactions
  • Permeability-Porosity evolution studies
  • High-Pressure/High Temperature Laboratory Facilities
    • 350 o C, ~2000 psi
    • Stirred batch reactors
    • Rocking autoclaves
    • Flow through cells
  • Geothermometry approaches for exploration, reservoir management, etc.
  • Example—Advanced multivariate geothermometry experiments
