Higher Degree by Research Candidate

Australian School of Petroleum & Energy Resources

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences


Tuan Tran is a PhD student at the University of Adelaide. His areas of expertise are production engineering, reservoir simulation and fracture stimulation.

His doctoral research focuses on investigating the rheological properties, stability and proppant transportation capacity of foam-based fracturing fluid at high pressure high temperature reservoirs. The effects of additives such as polymers, viscoelastic surfactants and nanomaterials on foams are thoroughly studied as well.
