  • Evaluation of a Horizontal Well

    Background: Air Sparging Air sparging is an in-situ remediation technology where air is injected into the saturated zone of an aquifer. It is an alternative to conventional ex-situ pump and treat systems for remediation of contaminated ground water. It is necessary to understand the pattern of air flow that will occur in the subsurface in order to determine the optimal placement, ...

  • Development and application of a type curve for gel damage identification in tight gas wells

    Fracture treatments have been proved to be the effective and efficient method in stimulating tight–gas reservoirs. The key is to create a long, highly conductive fracture to increase the well productivity and ultimate gas recovery. Since 1960s, fracture damage mechanisms have been investigated by petroleum engineers, researchers, and field personnel to better understand what caused lower fracture ...

  • Using performance indicators as a water loss management tool in developing countries

    Water utilities in developing countries are facing the challenges of substantial water losses in their water supply systems. In order to deliver water to their customers more efficiently and effectively, utilities must be able to measure and assess the performance of their water supply systems against set management objectives. However, water loss assessment is still not widely practised in ...

  • USLC columns put the right tools in your LC method development toolbox

    Understanding Selectivity in Reversed Phase Separations – A Simplified Approach to HPLC and UHPLC Column Selection The most significant influence on chromatographic peak separation, or resolution, is column selectivity. Unfortunately, column selectivity is also the least understood and most underutilized parameter. To improve selectivity, method developers often concentrate on ...

  • Research as a tool for change?

    In many studies on environmental sustainability, research is combined with initiating action. This approach differs from the more traditional natural-sciences view of research. However, the potential problems of the action orientation are seldom reflected upon. The aim of this paper, is to discuss pitfalls as well as possibilities and to propose a methodology for action-oriented Environmental ...

  • Risk assessment as a tool to explore sustainable development issues: lessons from the Australian coal industry

    Risk assessment is a familiar tool in the minerals industry. Originally introduced to explore areas of safety and health in the workplace, the tool is now increasingly used by the industry in other areas such as environmental management. As the industry grapples with the concept of sustainable development, risk assessment represents a potentially useful methodology to engage operations with the ...

  • Estimation of pan evaporation using soft computing tools

    Estimation of evaporation plays a key role in managing water resources projects. Traditionally, evaporation is determined using theoretical and empirical techniques as well as by pan observations. Practically, it is difficult to install evaporation pans at every location and empirical approach like Penman's equation is data intensive. This necessitates the use of an alternative approach, which ...

  • Scenarios evaluation tool for chlorinated solvent MNA

    Over the past three decades, much progress has been made in the remediation of chlorinated solvents from the subsurface. Yet these pervasive contaminants continue to present a significant challenge to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), other federal agencies, and other public and private organizations. The physical and chemical properties of chlorinated solvents make it difficult to rapidly ...

  • The decision Delphi as a tool of technology policy - the Austrian experience

    Foresight studies have come to be an important instrument of technology policy. No standard form, however, exists; custom-tailoring to the specific needs of the specific country is afforded. The Austrian foresight exercise had to investigate the market niches with a potential for Austrian dominance within the next 15 years. As a tool for this task, the instrument of the Decision Delphi was chosen ...
