Dr. Andrew Pulham

{Dr. Andrew Pulham}
Dr. Andrew Pulham

Associate professor
Department of Earth Sciences
Faculty of Science

Research interests
Dr. Pulham is beginning to establish research projects that will examine fluid flow characteristics and performance of sandstone oil and gas reservoirs. Initially, collaborative projects with the offshore oil industry in Newfoundland and Labrador are planned; these will focus on aspects of the Hibernia, White Rose and Terra Nova developments. Dr. Pulham intends to also seek analogs; that is, similar reservoirs in other parts of the world, with properties that are relevant to the Newfoundland experience.

Experience
While Dr. Pulham is relatively new to teaching, he brings with him a wealth of research experience from his 12 years in the oil and gas industry, as well as five years as a research associate at the University of Colorado. While involved in the petroleum industry, Dr. Pulham worked in Western Europe (North Sea), North America (Gulf of Mexico) and South America, primarily exploring new oil and gas reservoirs, as well as understanding and evaluating already discovered reservoirs. His work at the University of Colorado was also funded by the oil and gas industry, and focused on the performance of oil and gas reservoirs, or the characteristics of how oil and gas is delivered through reservoirs to wells.

Background
Dr. Pulham completed his undergraduate degree in physical geography and geology at Liverpool University. His PhD, from the University of Wales at Swansea, focused on ancient deltas. He has been an associate professor at Memorial's Department of Earth Sciences since June 2001.
