Enhanced Oil Recovery
Lesley James
Enhanced and improved oil recovery (EOR and IOR) aims to increase the microscopic, areal, and vertical sweep efficiency by manipulating a number of governing parameters affecting the fluid-fluid, fluid-rock, and well inflow properties. The goal of this research is to highlight the need to approach enhanced oil recovery research in a multidisciplinary fashion taking into account the multi-component, multiphase fluid flow through anisotropic heterogeneous complex porous media.

Fluidized Bed Reactors
Faical Larachi
A reaction engineering approach was used to investigate the potential of carbonation and tar-removal catalytic properties of magnesium silicate wastes. Detailed low- and high-pressure carbonations in dry and humid environments were carried out for pre- and post-combustion applications. These silicates were benchmarked with respect to olivine as a catalyst for tar removal using benzene catalytic steam reforming. The study was linked to reactor studies where a new reactor concept of allothermal cyclic multi-compartment fluidized bed steam biomass gasification was proposed.

U of T Engineering News
Women now account for 30.6 per cent of first-year students in U of T Engineering programs: a record for the Faculty and a number that surpasses all other Ontario universities. It is the only engineering school in Ontario with female first-year enrollment of more than 30 per cent. National figures are expected later this year from Engineers Canada. "U of T Engineering is a rich environment for talented, bright women to become engineering leaders," said Dean Cristina Amon.

Looming layoffs in Alberta's oil sands. Pink slips by the thousands at Target, Sony and Tim Hortons. All these gloomy headlines are casting a long shadow over the country. A new employment study by Randstad Canada indicates that jobseekers are more pessimistic than usual about their employment prospects in 2015. Nearly half of those surveyed (47 per cent) for the Workmonitorstudy said they are bracing for a tougher job market in the year ahead.

Is there money to be made in oil? New grads don't think so
Bloomberg
Six months ago, a degree in petroleum engineering was a ticket to a job with a six-figure salary. Now it's looking like a path to the unemployment office. The oil crash that's forcing companies to slash billions from their budgets and cut tens of thousands of workers is derailing an industry campaign to attract top college graduates. It comes at a time when the future of drilling is increasingly tied to new technology that lets companies pull more oil and natural gas from the ground, faster and cheaper.
