Queen’s civil engineers explore how to better detect methane contamination from natural gas extraction

Ph.D. candidate Cole Van De Ven and Associate Professor Dr. Kevin Mumford are investigating the governing process and potential effects of stray gas migration: natural gas that leaks into groundwater following oil and gas development. They are modelling the movement of methane and its dissolution in groundwater using a flow cell to better visualize the phenomena.
