Facies characterisation of Well A, Field Y, North-Eastern Niger Delta

  The facies characteristics of Well A in the Field Y were studied using wireline log signatures and data derived from them and cores. The lithostratigraphy, facies types which helped in the interpretation of the depositional environments and their characteristics were read from the wireline logs. The logs were environmentally corrected and normalized. The core data analysis helped in confirming the properties...

Conversion of methanol to hydrocarbons on cobalt and lanthanum catalysts

  γ-Alumina supported cobalt (4 wt%) and cobalt-lanthanum with different lanthanum content (2,4 and 6 wt%) have been used as catalysts for methanol conversion. The catalysts were physically characterized using: X-ray diffraction technique, hydrogen temperature programmed reduction (TPR) and BET surface area measurements. The results established the formation of Co3O4 and LaCoO3 oxide phases. The...
