During the tenure at Petroleum Institute, Dr. Rehan was involved in numerous research activities related to special core analysis and chemical enhanced oil recovery including Surfactant Polymer flooding and CO2 foam flooding for light oil, high temperature, high salinity carbonate reservoirs. Dr. Rehan has also worked as a team lead to establish state of the art EOR lab having coreflooding rig coupled with medical CT in ADNOC research and Innovation center (ADRIC), Petroleum Institute in collaboration with Statoil. In addition to this, he was also team lead to establish the SCAL lab with linear X-ray coreflooding system. All of his research focused on the designing and implementation of different IOR/EOR techniques for industrial application.

The focus of his research comprises of Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery, CO2 Foam Flooding, Reservoir Engineering, Nonlinear Parameter Optimization and image analysis for insitu saturation monitoring.
