Optimum site selection of natural gas vehicles station in Bangkok using geographic information system

  This paper is to demonstrate the integration of spatial modeling and geographic information systems (GIS) can be used in the optimal site location for natural gas vehicles (NGV) station in Bangkok. Integration has been proposed as one of the characteristics which distinguish GIS from other information systems. Variables used as input in this process mainly address direct construction costs and station...

Optimization of plug utilized in lost circulation treatment while drilling

  The major problem of oil wells drilling is circulation lost that can occur near weak formations and before well cementing. Conventional methods such as lost circulation material pills, cement plugs and dual injection were used to combat different types of massive mud loss in spite of their small success rate and high cost and risk. A different circulation treatment has been introduced to optimize plugging of...

Nitrogen fixing capacity of legumes and their Rhizospheral microflora in diesel oil polluted soil in the tropics

  The nitrogen fixing capacity of legumes cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) and groundnut(Arachis hypogea) and their microflora grown in diesel oil simulated utisol was investigated. Result revealed that concentration as low as 1% v/w of diesel oil significantly affected the densities of nitrogen fixing bacteria, bacteriods, actinomycetes and fungi associated with the legumes. The heterotrophic...

Spectral characterization of Kolsuz-Ulukisla-Nigde clays, Central Anatolian Region-Turkey and petroleum exploration

  Characterization of the Kolsuz clays in the Central Anatolian Region (Ulukisla-Nigde-Turkey) were carried out using the spectroscopic techniques and results were interpreted in terms of petroleum exploration. The DTA-TGA measurements have been carried out for determinations of thermal behaviour of the clay samples. The FTIR spectra of clays known as standard clays such as illite, illite-smectite mixed layer,...

Saturation and pressure distributions in a two-phase flow through semi-infinite porous media

  This paper presents models and solutions for the saturation and pressure distributions in a two-phase flow through semi-infinite porous media. The mathematical model, which was developed from the popular Darcy’s equation and the continuity equation, contains a substance source/sink term. The implicit finite difference formulation of the model was solved for saturation and pressure using the modified...

Experimental study on the effects of kerosene-doped gasoline on gasoline-powered engine performance characteristics

  This investigation was carried out to study the engine-out emissions from a four-stroke, four-cylinder, water-cooled spark ignition (SI) engine with kerosene blended gasoline with different proportions of kerosene ranging from 0 - 50% by volume in step of 10%. Gaseous exhaust emissions were measured with the aid of pocket gas TM-portable gas analyzer. The experimental results showed that the engine-out...

Analytical critical drawdown (CDD) failure model for real time sanding potential prediction based on Hoek and Brown failure criterion

  The risks of failure in sand reservoirs and consequent sand production is now a stark reality in the upstream oil and gas industry. As a result, failure analysis of reservoir rocks for sanding potential prediction purposes has become a routine activity more than ever before. Owing to the huge economic, operational and safety implications of risks of sand failure, the efficient management of these risks for...

A proactive approach for predicting and preventing wax deposition in production tubing strings – The Niger Delta experience

  A proactive approach for managing wax deposition problems during production operation is presented. A predictive thermodynamic model is employed to determine the onset condition(s) for wax precipitation in hydrocarbon mixtures. The parameters of a continuous distribution function are used to establish the nature of hydrocarbon mixtures while a fluid temperature distribution model enables the determination of...

A new method for determining the formation temperature from bottom-hole temperature logs

  Earlier, the authors proposed a new method for prediction of formation temperatures in permafrost regions from temperature logs in deep wells, and developed working formulas to process field data. The application of the proposed method on predicting the undisturbed formation temperature does not depend: (a) on the well drilling history (vertical depth versus time and stops in mud circulation), (b)...

A prediction to the best artificial lift method selection on the basis of TOPSIS model

  Artificial lift as a system adding energy to the fluid column in a wellbore to initiate and enhance production from the well is necessary when reservoir drives do not sustain acceptable rates or cause fluids to flow at all in some cases which use a range of operating principles, including pumping and gas lifting. Technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS) model or method is one of...
