New technologies in reservoir characterization. B. Blackwelder, L. Canales and J. Dubose. JPT, January 1996, 48(1), 26, 27.
The use is discussed of voxel technology for accurately depicting reservoirs. New technological advances in acquisition are helping to improve the resolution of the reservoir's geometry. These advances are the result of improvements in data storage capacity, data transfer rates, computer speed, and ...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Integrating technology into subsurface utility engineering projects. J.H. Anspach. Pipeline Gas J., June 1996, 223(6), 41--44.
The application of subsurface utility engineering (SUE) for risk control is described. Effects of underground utilities on pipeline projects are reviewed and risk aspects due to utility congestion in narrow right-of-way corridors and nearby population areas in urban environments are discussed. Cost ...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Fracture-stimulation technology for gas-storage wells. S.R. Reeves. JPT, February 1998, 50(2), 61--67 (5 pages).
Attention is drawn to the joint programme being sponsored by the DOE (and more recently the GRI) with industry to demonstrate application of new and novel-fracture-stimulation technologies in gas-storage fields across the US. The objective of which, being to advance deliverability-enhanced technolog...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Spherical and spheroidal steel structure products made by using integral hydro-bulge forming [IHBF] technology. S.H. Zhang et al. J. Construct. Steel Res., April-June 1998, 46(1--3), 338, 339. (Synopsis, see abstract 1848 for full details).
This new technology dispenses with dies and presses when forming the spherical or spheroidal steel parts. Steel plates are first cut into predesigned shapes and the blanks are then fabricated and welded into a closed polyhedral shell according to certain patterns. The shell is filled with fluid medi...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Chevron develops seismic data compression technology. Anon. Pipeline Gas J., April 1996, 223(4), 72--73.
Development of a software program by Chevron Petroleum Technology Co. in Houston is described. This compresses 3-D marine seismic datasets to less than 1% of their original size. The data retains the detailed high-resolution necessary for effective interpretation. A one-month field test in the seism...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Putting Spar technology to the test. R. Converse and R. Bridges. J. Offshore Technol., February 1997, 5(1), 8--12.
Consideration is given to the technology which has turned Spars from storage vessels into deepwater drilling platforms. Tabulated data show the principal particulars of three Spars located in the Gulf of Mexico---Oryx Neptune, Chevron Genesis and Amoco Martin. Adaptations for the west of Shetland ar...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
