Mr Odondiri Oyinebielador Derrick is a PhD research student within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

Carbon Capture and Storage

Derrick is a lecturer in Geology at the Nigerian Maritime University, a former hydrographical surveyor with Pelfaco limited, and worked for Nigeria's ministry of petroleum resources.

He completed a Master's degree in petroleum geoscience for exploration at the University of Manchester, UK, in 2013. He previously obtained BSc and MSc in geology from the Belarusian State University, Belarus, in 2009 and 2010.

He is currently working towards a PhD in accessing the integrity of carbon capture and storage reservoirs using  an experimental and modelling approach. This will entail using an experimental rig at the NOC in Southampton capable of determining ultrasonic P- and S-wave velocities and attenuations, electrical resistivity (including tomography), axial strain, and permeability (including relative permeability for variable brine: CO2 flow rates) of rock samples, simulating the differential stress conditions of real reservoirs.

Research interests

Carbon capture and storage is a climate change mitigating technology. I am interested in the petrographic analysis of reactive and non-reactive rocks, in situ mineral carbonation and CO2-water-rock interactions to evaluate and understand the effects of elasticity and transport properties in basalt formations during CO2 injection.

I am also interested in MATLAB, Python, ultrasonic P- and S-wave velocities and attenuations, electrical resistivity (including tomography), axial strain, and permeability (including relative permeability for variable brine: CO2 flow rates) of rock samples, simulating the differential stress conditions of real reservoirs.
