Project management improved multiwell shallow gas development. D.L. Becker. OGJ, 16 October 1995, 93(42), 45--49.
Shallow gas reserves in Alberta were developed successfully through pre-job planning and special drilling, cementing, and completion designs. The reservoir is described briefly and details are given of the directional drilling, bottomhole assembly, casing, drilling fluid, and cement. The completions...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Mud management, special slurries improve deepwater cementing operations. J. Griffith and R. Faul. OGJ, 20 October 1997, 95(42), 49--51.
For successful deepwater cementing the need is stressed for improved mud-management techniques to reduce fluid loss, shorten slurry transition times, and make mud and cement slurry weights compatible with formation pore pressure and fracture gradients. Attention is drawn to the principal challenges ...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Aker Kvaerner has been awarded a contract to perform engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) services for concrete structures placed on the seabed for ChevronTexaco’s proposed Port Pelican and Baja California offshore LNG terminals in North America.Availability: OnlineRecord type: News Item
Uncertainties associated with the fire resistance of high strength concretes. M. Hordyk. Paper. Proc. Conf., Offshore structures---hazard and integrity management, Session 4, Paper No. 3, 13 pages (See abstract 1393 for complete reference).
The nature of high strength concrete is described and consideration is given to dense cement matrix and fire loads, the effect of fire on unloaded and loaded plain concrete. Polypropylene fibres are discussed and the effect of fire on reinforced concrete is examined. 10 refs.Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Foam cementing cyclic-steam, producing wells. Anon. JPT, August 1998, 50(8), 81, 82. (Synopsis SPE paper 46215).
Consideration is given to reasons for the selection of foamed cement for cementing the production casing. Details are presented of its application and the process improvements are described. Improved primary-cementing results were demonstrated in volumes of actual cement return to surface, number of...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Steamflood expansion using slim-hole injectors. E.L. Dennis, K.R. Johnson and R.H. Kirby. SPE Reservoir Engng., May 1995, 10(2), 77--81.
Details are given of slim-hole injection wells which were drilled and completed for one-third the cost of conventional steam injectors. Major well cost savings resulted from a reduction in drilling rig, cementing, packer, and tubular costs. The slim-hole design provided 38 injectors and ten observat...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Cinar offers technical services to a large number of industries, i.e., boilers, cement and lime, steel, using mineral interactive computational (MI-CFD) tools, focusing on: increasing the efficiency of combustion units, use of alternative fuels, assistance with permitting and, where appropriate, imp...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Organisation Address
Fibre optic sensing boosts pipeline management efficiency. P. Orell. Pipeline Gas J., February 1995, 222(2), 44--45.
New fibre optic-based distributed temperature sensing (DTS) equipment is recommended for simultaneous monitoring of thousands of data points. Trials using DTS equipment for detecting leaks in natural gas liquids pipelines and in LNG pipelines operating at -320 degrees F are discussed. Development of...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Use belowground storage tanks to manage stormwater. J. Nedrow. Hydrocarbon Processing, January 1996, 75(1), 101--103.
Management of stormwater discharges from the 130 000 brl/day BP refinery in Toledo, Ohio is discussed. Construction of two concrete 10 million gal. belowground storage tanks is described and illustrated. These meet environmental, safety, and operational criteria and they are a cost-effective alterna...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Real-time job monitoring and performance control of primary cementing operations as a way to total quality management. H.F. Spoerker. SPE Drilling Completion, December 1995, 10(4), 233--237.
Attention is drawn to a relatively low cost method of improving results of primary cement jobs---particularly for onshore wells where the cost of highly sophisticated measurements cannot be justified. Ways of eliminating or at least controlling free-fall-induced problems through hydraulic simulation...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
