AbstractThe Centre of Thermodynamics of Processes (CTP) of MINES ParisTech/Armines (France) is proposing the Joint Industry Project (JIP) Evaluation of the crystallization risk in LNG production.
The Ph.D. thesis organized in the context of the JIP aims at determining (experiments and modeling) the thermodynamic conditions of appearance of solid phases which need to be perfectly mastered during the design of natural gas liquefaction processes.
ProfileResearch engineer or Master. Good level of general and scientific education. Good level in English language. Good analysis, synthesis, innovation, and communication skills. Adaptability and creativity qualities. Motivation for experimental and research activities. Relevant professional project. knowledge in thermodynamics and experimental activity.
