  • The Shale Oil and Gas Debate

    In the space of six years, the united States have reduced their dependence on oil by a third and have become almost self-sufficient in terms of gas supply. This “shale oil and gas revolution”, a sudden and unexpected earthquake in the energy world, enabled the US to become one of the most competitive countries in the world. Exporting ...

  • New Regulations for Biomass and Other Alternative Fuels

    Catalytic Products International has been answering numerous questions about biomass and other alternative fuels in recent months. This seems in opposition to the trend of consuming more and more natural gas due to the recent shale gas discoveries. However, a few trends seem to be supporting the high interest in biomass as an alternative fuel. ...

  • API RP 13C Standard for Exploration & Production

    This International Standard provides a standard procedure for assessing and modifying performance of solids control equipment systems commonly used in the field in petroleum and natural gas drilling fluids processing.This procedure is not intended for the comparison of similar types of individual pieces of equipment.Clause 11 in this document ...

  • Hydrogeology of Crystalline Rocks

    Hydrogeology of Crystalline Rocks deals with deep groundwater in the granite and gneiss basement of the continents. It has become evident during the past years that highly mineralized water is present in an interconnected fracture network of the basement. Thus, the upper part of the crust of the continents can be viewed as an aquifer and ...

  • Tensile Fracturing in Rocks

    Understanding tensile fracture in rocks provides an important key for the interpretation of many problems in structural geology. This book presents a multidisciplinary approach to tensile fracture in rocks (faulting is briefly addressed), starting with an introduction to fracture physics and progressing through tectonofractographic features, ...

  • Education 40.4

    A\J's 2014 Education issue digs into what it means to get an environmental education – plus where to get one, what you can do with it, and why everyone should have ...

  • Geomechanics and Fluidodynamics

    This monograph is based on subsurface hydrodynamics and applied geomechanics and puts it in a unifying framework. It focuses on the understanding of physical and mechanical properties of geomaterials by presenting mathematical models of deformation and fracture with related experiments. Borehole stability and water, gas and oil reservoir ...

  • Resource Wars 40.1

    Fracking. Hydro Dams. Pipelines. This is the fight of our lives. Humans have culled and mined resources from our habitats for centuries, but never before has it been so intensive and extensive, nor have we ever been so aware of the looming downside. We know that choosing how to manage, supply and bankroll our natural capital in the age of climate ...
