Subrata Borgohain Gogoi is professor of petroleum technology at Dibrugarh University, India, since 1994, before which she served as technical services engineer at Bongaigoan Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited, Assam. She obtained her MTech in chemical engineering and PhD in petroleum technology. She successfully completed four major research projects as principal investigator (PI), the most prestigious of which was the Indo–U.S. 21st-Century Knowledge Initiative project with the Department of Petroleum Engineering, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, USA. Currently, she is also working as the Indian PI in three international projects and three national projects funded by the Government of India. Prof. Gogoi is a reviewer of 12 peer-reviewed international journals and has authored 1 book. Her current research interests include enhanced oil recovery (EOR) leading to CO2 sequestration and application of nanotechnology for oil field–produced water (OFPW) treatment. Her EOR group is engaged in characterizing reservoir fluids and rocks for formulating EOR slugs for application in depleted reservoirs, both nationally and globally, and in validating experimental findings of the research through simulation and modeling. Her OFPW group is developing membrane-based treatment technologies and working on bioremediation and the evaluation of the corrosion and scaling potential of OFPW.
