Seyyed Hosseini

Seyyed is currently a Research Professor at The University of Texas at Austin.

Seyyed is currently working on various topics related to multiphase fluid flow in porous media. His research focuses on CO2 enhanced oil recovery and geologic storage, an essential component of CCUS.

He led multiple field and laboratory studies on many aspects of the CCUS process, including estimating underground storage capacity, optimizing enhanced oil recovery to both store CO2 and recover oil, designing and implementing commercial monitoring programs, and assessing geosystem response to injection. The most recent projects include 1) monitoring of West Ranch field where CO2 captured from the largest post-combustion, carbon-capture facility in the world is used for EOR operations, 2) the Gulf of Mexico Partnership for Offshore Carbon Storage, one of the first efforts in the U.S. to assess the geologic layers below the seafloor for CO2 storage and 3) application of data analytics in subsurface applications for developing fast predictive models.
