  • Successful corrosion strategy through good practice guidance

    Corrosion is a hugely significant issue to the oil and gas industry. This is especially true in marginal development projects where tight profit margins are in play and an unplanned failure in a key component or system can rapidly lead to the premature closure of the associated well, or even field, and a reduction in returns on investment to operators and shareholders. Here, Dr Cameron Stewart, ...

  • Moderate solar dimming in an accelerating warming climate of Bahrain

    The magnitude and variability of warming of air and the solar dimming/brightening phenomenon are investigated for Bahrain. The temperature records show highly significant warming trends through six months of the year (April–September) for absolute maximum (AbsTx), and through five months (April–July and October) for absolute minimum (AbsTn). Greater warming overwhelms the daytime ...

  • Three–dimensional oil and gas pool–forming dynamic simulation system: principle, method and applications

    Based on the theories and methods of system engineering, the reconstruction of physical space for oil and gas generation, expulsion, migration, accumulation and diffusion is realised by combining the dynamics simulation with topological structure simulation and applying the topological structure simulation. The integral non–linear process of petroleum system is described successfully with the ...

  • Research on 3D numerical simulation of petroleum pool–forming based on system dynamics

    To solve the relationship between control and feedback control in petroleum system, this paper studies the hydrocarbon generation, expulsion, migration and accumulation (HGEMA) processes as one system which takes each process as a subsystem, analyses and determines the control and feedback control factors, the threshold value and delay time of each geological effect in these subsystems adopting ...

  • Quantitative evaluation methods of traps based on hydrocarbon pool–forming process simulation

    In order to enhance the accuracy and reliability of evaluation of hydrocarbon traps, the authors have tried methods of quantitative evaluation of traps based on hydrocarbon pool–forming process simulation. The key points are: firstly, all the analyses are based on 3–dimensional dynamic simulation of hydrocarbon pool–forming process. The rationality of evolution of the trap characteristics can be ...

  • Fixed price contract versus incentive–based contract in the oil and gas industry

    The research question of this paper is to analyse when an operator and a service provider prefer a fixed price contract, common in the oil and gas industry, versus the uncommon incentive–based contract. The contracts are modelled with 20 parameters and one free choice variable which is the time to complete the project determined by the service provider. The method is to determine the ...

  • Fixed price contract versus incentive-based contract in the oil and gas industry

    Abstract: The research question of this paper is to analyse when an operator and a service provider prefer a fixed price contract, common in the oil and gas industry, versus the uncommon incentive-based contract. The contracts are modelled with 20 parameters and one free choice variable which is the time to complete the project determined by the service provider. The method is to determine the ...

  • Potential impacts on hydrology and hydropower production under climate warming of the Sierra Nevada

    Watersheds of the Cosumnes, American, Bear and Yuba (CABY) Rivers in the Sierra Nevada, California, are managed with a complex network of reservoirs, dams, hydropower plants and water conveyances. While water transfers are based on priorities among competing demands, hydropower generation is licensed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and regulated by federal and state laws and ...

  • Shelter in place: a First Nation community in Canada's Chemical Valley

    This case study is based on research conducted in the region of Ontario known as 'Chemical Valley'. One stark indicator of health risks posed by industry there is a public service announcement instructing residents that in the event of a dangerous gas emission, they are to 'shelter in place' – i.e., stay indoors with windows tightly closed. The local community with greatest exposure is ...

  • Driver behaviour considerations in calibrating microsimulation models for capacity

    Microscopic simulation (microsimulation) software is a powerful analytical tool that provides inexpensive and efficient analysis of real world traffic conditions. Thorough calibration is imperative for maintaining the reliability, accuracy and prediction power of microsimulation models. Defining roadway capacity is an important component of the calibration process. Microsimulators, such as ...

  • Meet the GHG Rule

    On October 30, 2009, EPA issued a final rule that requires reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from all sectors of the economy. The final rule applies to fossil fuel suppliers and industrial gas suppliers, direct GHG emitters, and manufacturers of heavy-duty and off-road vehicles and engines. The rule requires only that “sources above certain threshold levels monitor and report ...

  • The smart pipe: RFID and the oil and gas industry

    This article explores the prospects for radio frequency identification (RFID) to be utilised by firms throughout the oil and gas industry. The article first provides the reader with an overview of RFID technology, how it works and how it is being applied in various settings. The present research found that innovative companies around the world are finding that RFID can improve their business ...

  • Free-field calibration in China

    Practically all reference microphone calibrations that are performed by national metrology institutes are pressure response calibrations. This is the case even if most practical measurements are carried out under free- or diffuse-field conditions. Fortunately, for measurement microphones, there are essentially fixed ratios between the pressure-, free- and diffuse-field responses. Therefore, the ...

  • Intense polar temperature inversion in the middle atmosphere on mars

    Current understanding of weather, climate and global atmospheric circulation on Mars is incomplete, in particular at altitudes above about 30 km. High-resolution observations from the Mars Climate Sounder instrument on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show an intense warming of the middle atmosphere over the south polar region in ...
