Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Oil science and technology are constantly evolving in order to improve reservoir management and development efficiency, as well as safety. Within the framework of marine petroleum, the main challenges of the 21st century relate to optimizing reservoir management efficiency by guaranteeing environmental sustainability and safety, as well as providing effective methods for the safe storage of greenhouse gas within reservoir rocks. The current energetic crisis is dramatically pointing out the strong sensitivity of the whole productive system to energy source availability and price fluctuations. A rational strategy for the exploitation of fossil resources should make it possible to provide an efficient and flexible oil/gas production system capable of adequately responding to market needs. The current reservoir discipline is experiencing a rapid evolution in regard to new developments, such as data analytics, machine learning and computing capability, improved drilling and prospecting techniques, and, on the other hand, enhanced methods and paradigms of reservoir characterization and modeling at several scales of observation.

This Special Issue focuses on recent advances and/or trends in the study of such a special marine resource. Contributions such as original papers, reviews, short notes, or perspective papers, dealing with theoretical, experimental, or methodological topics are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
