Numerical Approach to Mobilization of an Oil Slug in a Capillary Tube Subjected to Various External Excitations

Harsh Joshi, Liming Dai*

This research attempts to numerically investigate the mobilization of an oil drop, also known as an oil “slug”, under the stimulation of an external excitation. This differs from other works in this area wherein the oil is forced through the throat of a pore. An oil drop is first considered to be placed in a small diameter tube filled with water and then flushed from the tube by injecting more water. The pressure difference between the inlet and outlet of the tube is then evaluated.

Safety Management and risk in kill well with case study in Iran and the Other countries

Seyed Kourosh Mahjour*, Ehsan Momeni, Mohammad Hadi Parhamvand

We know that a kill well with drilling relief well is a one of prevalent process and all of company know a managing this work is a one of hard working. In this article, we try to study managing kind of relief wells and show relief well planning. Relief well planning was started as a contingency immediately after the blowout occurred with full resources directed to that effort after the second drill pipe kill attempt failed.

Comparison of Hydrocarbon Potentials of New Albany Shale And Maquoketa Group in Indiana, USA

Çağla Akar, Maria Mastalerz*, Arndt Schimmelmann, Agnieszka Drobniak

Organic petrographic (maceral composition and vitrinite reflectance, Ro) and geochemical methods (Rock-Eval pyrolysis and total organic carbon, TOC) were used to compare hydrocarbon potentials of New Albany Shale (Middle Devonian to Lower Mississippian) and Maquoketa Group (Upper Ordovician) based on 51 samples from 5 drill cores from the Illinois Basin. New Albany Shale is an effective source rock due to its organic matter content and character (Type I and Type II kerogen) and its dominant placement in the oil window.

PORE-PRESSURE PREDICTION FROM SEISMICS: A Case Study of an X-Field in the Niger Delta

*N for Bruno Ndicho, Anumaka.C.C,C.F.R.odumodu

In this work Pore pressure prediction of an X- oil field in Niger Delta Basin was evaluated from seismic reflection data, using the Bower’s and Gardner’s technique of velocity- to-pore pressure gradient. Results show that, the top of overpressure zone is lies at depths varying from 1500m in well 01, through 2048m in well 03 to 1722m in well 05. Sonic log deflections at these intervals all showed significant deflection common with pore pressure zones.

Variations in Gas Content in Organic Matter-Rich Low Maturity Shale; Example from the New Albany Shale in the Illinois Basin

Maria Mastalerz*, Ali Karayigit, LaBraun Hampton, Agnieszka Drobniak

This paper investigates controls on gas content in the Upper Devonian to Lower Mississippian New Albany Shale, specifically addressing the influence of organic matter content and porosity on the desorbed and residual gas contents. The shale samples studied come from Daviess County, Indiana, where the entire New Albany Shale thickness of 40 m (~120 ft) was cored.

Methane to Ethane Ratios of Emissions at Natural Gas Compressor Stations and Storage Facilities

*Derek R.Johnson, April N.Covington, and Nigel N.Clark

We reported methane emissions of five natural gas transmission and storage facilities as part of the Environmental Defense Fund’s Barnett Coordinated Campaign. Samples included reciprocating engine exhausts, engine crankcases, compressor packing or wet seal vents, turbine exhausts, slop tanks, and leaks. Samples were analyzed with an FTIR spectrometer to determine ethane to methane (C2/C1) and propane to methane (C3/C1) ratios by volume. Hydrocarbon ratios have been used in source apportionment - anthropogenic sources include higher alkanes. Gas composition of shale plays varies by play and within the play.
