About the position

NTNU has a vacancy for a 3-year PhD fellowship at the Department of Geoscience and Petroleum (IGP). The researcher will be a part of BRU21: NTNU Research and Innovation Program on Digital and Automation Solutions for the Oil and Gas Industry (HYPERLINK https://www.ntnu.edu/bru21 ). BRU21 is a PhD driven Program with about 34 PhD/PostDoc projects led by 25 Professors from different departments at NTNU as well as a number of industrial co-supervisors. The PhD candidates are financed either by NTNU or by an Oil and Gas Company. This specific PhD Fellowship is financed by Petrobras and the PhD candidate will work on a use case in collaboration with Petrobras. The candidate will formally be employed by NTNU for a 3 years PhD period with location in Trondheim, Norway. The candidate must expect some travel between Rio de Janeiro and Trondheim related to the use case.        
Well integrity monitoring and control is intended to reduce the risk of failures, which causes must be understood and mitigated or eliminated. In addition to fault detection, it is important to develop means to predict and avoid critical faults and degradation mechanisms, considering the whole life cycle of a well starting from its concept design phase through construction, production until its plug and abandonment. In this project the focus will be on solving these challenges through employing new data analytics techniques and establishment of an appropriated integrity criteria based on industry best practices and on the related state-of-the-art.


The primary is to develop a computer-based artificial intelligence system, or a system of systems, for offshore well integrity and life cycle management for the Brazilian and Norwegian Continental Shelves.

You will report to your supervisor.
