SURFACE FACILITIES AND RESERVOIR MODELING OF A MIDDLE EASTERN MULTI-RESERVOIR COMPLEX

Author John Killough, Graham Fleming,Colin Engle,Nigel Brock
Source International Journal of Engineering and Applied sciences pp 165 - 184 Vol 01. No. 4 -- 2013
Abstract

An elusive goal of reservoir simulation has been the ability to accurately model multiple reservoirs producing through a common surface facility. In the past, loosely coupled techniques have often been utilized which did not fully converge the overall solution of the simulation. This in turn led to instabilities at worst or at best inaccuracies in the solution since the complete interaction of the reservoir was not properly accounted for ...

Abstract

In this paper, a wideband current source is presented. The current source is based from a Second Generation Current Conveyor (CCII) coupled to a Folded Cascade Operational Trans-conductance Amplifier (FC- OTA). The FC-OTA is configured as an inverting amplifier whose feedback loop acts as a current source. When driven by an input voltage source, this amplifier behaves as a Voltage-Controlled Current Source (VCCS). Instead of driving the VCCS by a voltage source, a Norton current source has been utilized in the form of a CCII ...

Abstract

Storms of convective origin are generally known to be responsible for most of flash flood events in Malaysia. Flood problems are aggravated by rapid urbanization which modified the hydrological processes of a catchment. This study is aimed to compare spatial distribution of convective rainfall between meteorological radar data and observed surface data (rain gauge). The convective events were analyzed in terms of timing and spatial distribution. The spatial distributions of convective rainfall, derived from meteorological radar data and those observed on the ground are compared...

Abstract

The effect of ozonation on the biodegradability of distillery wastewater in a batch anaerobic digester was investigated in semi-batch pilot-scale experiments. The organic matter and color reductions as well as gas production were monitored. The total COD and color reduction during the 30 minute ozonation were 24  11% and 51  7 %, respectively. Further anaerobic treatment resulted in average total COD reduction of 57  7 % compared to 38  14% for wastewater similarly treated by batch anaerobic digester and without prior ozonation....

COUPLED SURFACE/SUBSURFACE SIMULATION OF A DEEPWATER Gulf Of MEXICO FIELD

Author Brad Browning, Walt Dobbs, John Killough, Amit Kumar
Source International Journal of Engineering and Applied sciences pp 023 - 046 Vol 01. No. 1 -- 2012
Abstract

Modern simulation capabilities were recently applied to a deepwater Gulf of Mexico field to define the scope and timing for the second phase of development. This integrated study relied heavily on new advances to handle complex fluid behavior, derive a history match, resolve future behavior of sub-sea wells, and seamlessly review economic metrics. Simulations used tightly-coupled surface and subsurface calculations to capture and stabilize the interaction of surface facilities with the reservoir. This robust and rigorous approach improves upon previously reported techniques in which subsurface flow calculations are only loosely coupled to the surface network. Fluid characterization involved a single equation of state with multiple distributed component sets in reservoirs and compositional mixing within the surface network. Super-critical initialization was used to capture an unusually small gas-oil transition. History match parameters included reservoir, facilities, and well properties ...

A REVIEW OF WELDING PARAMETER ON CORROSION BEHAVIOR OF ALUMINUM

Author Ervina Efzan M. N., K.Vigram Kovalan, Suriati G.
Source International Journal of Engineering and Applied sciences pp 017 - 022 Vol 01. No. 1 -- 2012
Abstract

There have been a number of reports highlighting the microstructural changes due to the plastic deformation and frictional heat associated. Dissolution and coarsening of strengthening precipitates as well as the formation of wide precipitate-free zones have been found in the weld region. Mechanical failure of the welds can take place in the nugget, Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) regions depending on the amount of heat input, which is controlled by welding parameters such as rotation and travel speeds. The dependence of weld microstructure on processing parameters also has been observed.

PRODUCTION OF ULTRA-LOW SULPHUR GASOLINE AND ASSESSMENT OF THE EFFICIENCY OF FERROCENE ANTIKNOCK ADDITIVE

Author Fahed Salem Khamis, Todor Vasilev Palichev
Source International Journal of Engineering and Applied sciences pp 011 - 016 Vol 01. No. 1 -- 2012
Abstract

of stock gasoline with ultra-low sulphur content up to 10 ppm (Euro-5 Standard) by blending of different gasoline streams produced in the Lukoil Nentochim Bourgas (LNHB) refinery units as well as on the study on the efficiency of ferrocene antiknock additives. Some recipes for the production of stock gasoline A92, A95 and A98 commercial grade on the basis of component streams produced in LNHB refinery units and satisfying all specifications of the European regulation were elaborated. Thus, the gasoline blending provides a great potential benefit to the refinery in view of minimizing operating costs and product quality improvement. It has been proved that the efficiency of the additive is a function of the total content of alkanes and particularly of that of paraffin in the blended gasoline. The higher is its content the higher the additive efficiency is. It was found that the maximum increase in RON by using ferrocene antiknock additive can be up to five points and the maximum increase in MON – up to 2.9 points.
