Tom Manzocchi

Associate Professor


Earth Sciences


Dr Tom Manzocchi field of primary research interests is on developing methods for improving geological representations in oilfield reservoir flow simulation models, with the overriding aim of improving hydrocarbon recovery factors.

He is currently focused on: i) Integration of geological structure (sedimentological and fault/fracture related) into conventional oil industry reservoir modelling and engineering practice, through the development and application of innovative tools and workflows; ii) Understanding fluid movement and pressure evolution in different reservoir contexts (production, migration, sequestration), through rigorous integration of multi-phase fluid flow and appropriately up-scaled reservoir structure; and iii) Quantitative characterisation of fault and fracture systems from outcrop and subsurface, with particular reference to aspects capable of influencing fluid flow.
