    • A Stratigraphic and Geochemical Analysis of the Ojinaga Formation, West Texas 

      Moore, Bronwyn Tays (2016-07-28)
      Stratigraphic, biostratigraphic and geochemical analysis yields a greater understanding of the depositional environment of the Upper Cretaceous Ojinaga Formation in West Texas. A detailed measured section of the Ojinaga ...
    • Application of Ensemble-based Optimization on UNISIM-I 

      Plukmonton, Pattanapong (2017-04-27)
      In reservoir management, it is challenging to obtain an efficient production schedule and maximize the profits. An optimization workflow is usually used in maximizing/minimizing the production objective. However, production ...
    • Foam drilling simulator 

      Paknejad, Amir Saman (Texas A&M University, 2007-04-25)
      Although the use of compressible drilling fluids is experiencing growth, the flow behavior and stability properties of drilling foams are more complicated than those of conventional fluids. In contrast with conventional ...
    • Modeling of bulk kerogen porosity: Methods for control and characterization 

      Vasileiadis, Manolis; Peristeras, Loukas D.; Papavasileiou, Konstantinos D.; Economou, Ioannis G. (ACS PUblications, 2017-05-08)
      Shale gas is an unconventional source of energy, which has attracted a lot of attention during the last years. Kerogen is a prime constituent of shale formations and plays a crucial role in shale gas technology. Significant ...
    • Petroleum Service Projects in the Gulf of Guinea 

      Ken-Worgu, Kenneth Chukwumeka (2011-10-21)
      The goal of this record of study is to examine the major facets involved in managing several petroleum service projects located in three different countries in the Gulf of Guinea simultaneously, while effectively engaging ...
    • Probabilistic Performance Forecasting for Unconventional Reservoirs With Stretched-Exponential Model 

      Can, Bunyamin (2011-08-08)
      Reserves estimation in an unconventional-reservoir setting is a daunting task because of geologic uncertainty and complex flow patterns evolving in a long-stimulated horizontal well, among other variables. To tackle this ...
    • Real-time Control and Vibrations Analysis of a Completely Automated Miniaturized Rig 

      Zarate Losoya, Enrique (2016-12-08)
      Drilling Automation has become an important research effort in the Oil and Gas Industry since the fall of Oil prices in 2008. The cyclical nature of our industry and the fierce competition is pushing operators and drilling ...
    • Simulation Approach Selection in Reservoir Management 

      Zubarev, Maxim (2016-11-30)
      Rapid evolution of technologies in petroleum industry in last decades has significantly improved our abilities in hydrocarbon reservoirs development. The number and complexity of tasks to be solved by reservoir engineers ...
    • Thermoporoelastic Effects of Drilling Fluid Temperature on Rock Drillability at Bit/Formation Interface 

      Thepchatri, Kritatee 1984- (2012-10-26)
      A drilling operation leads to thermal disturbances in the near-wellbore stress, which is an important cause of many undesired incidents in well drilling. A major cause of this thermal disturbance is the temperature difference ...
