Understanding geological features and processes, ranging from the nanoscale to the field scale, drives exploration for new hydrocarbon reservoirs and is fundamental in effectively producing oil and gas from the subsurface. Researchers at Missouri S&T focus on understanding the processes that create and trap hydrocarbons as well as the physical and chemical properties (petroleum geochemistry, petrophysics, fracturing, etc.) of the source and host rocks.
