Current study areas include coal seam methane, methane hydrates, enhanced viscous/heavy oil recovery, carbon dioxide capture and sequestration, arctic oil well and geothermal well cementing, gas-to-liquid transportation through the Trans Alaska Pipeline System, and enhanced oil recovery through microbial and wettability alteration processes.

PDL research also serves rural communities by exploring ways to keep fuel production and transport as economical and safe as possible. PDL focuses on North Slope conventional and heavy-oil development, North Slope conventional natural gas and methane-hydrate resource assessment and development, and coal-seam methane resource development in Alaska.
