Effects of CO2 geosequestration on opalinus clay. (2024)
Journal Article
ASIM, T. and HAWEZ, H.K. 2024. Effects of CO2 geosequestration on opalinus clay. Energies [online], 17(10), article number 2431. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/en17102431

CO2 geosequestration is an important contributor to United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 13, i.e., Climate Action, which states a global Net-Zero CO2 emissions by 2050. A potential impact of CO2 geosequestration in depleted oil and gas reservo... Read More about Effects of CO2 geosequestration on opalinus clay..

Impact of regional pressure dissipation on carbon capture and storage projects: a comprehensive review. (2024)
Journal Article
HAWEZ, H.K. and ASIM, T. 2024. Impact of regional pressure dissipation on carbon capture and storage projects: a comprehensive review. Energies [online], 17(8), article number 1889. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/en17081889

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a critical technology for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and combating climate change. CCS involves capturing CO2 emissions from industrial processes and power plants and injecting them deep underground for lo...

Coupled geomechanics and transient multiphase flow at fracture-matrix interface in tight reservoirs. (2023)
Thesis
KUKHA HAWEZ, H.R. 2023. Coupled geomechanics and transient multiphase flow at fracture-matrix interface in tight reservoirs. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis. Hosted on OpenAIR [online]. Available from: https://doi.org/10.48526/rgu-wt-1987869

Fractured hydrocarbon reservoirs play a significant role in the world economy and energy markets. Fluid injection (normally water) forces the hydrocarbons out of the reservoirs. Geomechanics, externally applied stress on the rock, play a significant... Read More about Coupled geomechanics and transient multiphase flow at fracture-matrix interface in tight reservoirs..

A critical review on coupled geomechanics and fluid flow in naturally fractured reservoirs. (2021)
Journal Article
HAWEZ, H.K., SANAEE, R. and FAISAL, N.H. 2021. A critical review on coupled geomechanics and fluid flow in naturally fractured reservoirs. Journal of natural gas science and engineering [online], 95, article 104150. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jngse.2021.104150

Naturally fractured reservoirs have been a source of challenging issues with regard to field development, well stability, drilling, and enhanced oil recovery, as a connected fracture system can totally dominate the flow patterns. Because of the high... Read More about A critical review on coupled geomechanics and fluid flow in naturally fractured reservoirs..

Multiphase flow modelling in fractured reservoirs using a novel computational fluid dynamics approach. (2021)
Presentation / Conference
HAWEZ, H., SANAEE, R. and FAISAL, N.H. 2021. Multiphase flow modelling in fractured reservoirs using a novel computational fluid dynamics approach. Presented at the 55th US rock mechanics/geomechanics American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA) symposium, 18-25 June 2021, [virtual conference].

Numerical modelling of multiphase flow in naturally fractured reservoirs is a challenging issue for petroleum reservoir engineers. As a result of high degree heterogeneity in flow characteristics in fractured reservoirs, several mathematical, discret...

Coupled reservoir geomechanics and multiphase flow in fractured porous media. (2020)
Presentation / Conference
HAWEZ, H., SANAEE, R. and FAISAL, N. 2020. Coupled reservoir geomechanics and multiphase flow in fractured porous media. Presented at the 9th ETP (Energy Technology Partnership) annual conference 2020 (ETPAC20), 2-3 November 2020, [virtual conference].

As a result of a rapid pressure reduction and lack of understanding of hydromechanical behaviour at the fracture matrix interface, a considerable amount of hydrocarbon reserves will remain in place in fractured reservoirs. Therefore, rigid numerical... Read More about Coupled reservoir geomechanics and multiphase flow in fractured porous media..

Enhanced oil recovery by CO2 injection in carbonate reservoirs. (2014)
Conference Proceeding
HAWEZ, H. and AHMED, Z. 2014. Enhanced oil recovery by CO2 injection in carbonate reservoirs. In Al-Kayiem, H.H., Brebbia, C.A. and Zubir, S.S. (eds.) Energy and sustainability V: proceedings of 5th Energy and sustainability international conference 2014, 16-18 December 2014, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. WIT transactions on ecology and the environment, 186. Southampton: WIT Press [online], 547-558. Available from: https://doi.org/10.2495/ESUS140481

The majority of carbonate reservoirs have low porosity and permeability in general because of having a high amount of matrixes that make a heterogeneous reservoir, however high permeable layers are fractured. This study shows the effect of carbon dio... Read More about Enhanced oil recovery by CO2 injection in carbonate reservoirs..
