We are carrying out a series of studies, usually in close collaboration with the oil and gas industry, on problems in oil and gas reservoirs, potential CO2 repositories and geothermal reservoirs. The emphasis of this research has recently been shale gas, tight gas, and tight oil reservoirs.

Professor Zoback teaches a class on Reservoir Geomechanics, which is offered every other year in Spring quarter at Stanford, and is also offered yearly as a free online class open to anyone.
