This paper presents a numerical scheme for a solid–fluid coupled discrete-element method (DEM) that takes into consideration solid deformation and pore pressure generation and dissipation. Analytical solutions of conventional soil mechanics examples obtained by oedometer testing are used to...
Role of Asphaltene in Stability of Water-in-oil Model Emulsions: The Effects of Oil Composition and Size of the Aggregates and DropletsDownload
Water-in-oil (W/O) emulsions are the most common type of emulsions handled in petroleum processes. It is thought that the field emulsions are primarily stabilized by asphaltene-resin micelles and several research works have studied the stability mechanisms of asphaltene in crude emulsions....
Size DependencyIn this study, uniaxial compressive strength (UCS) of limestone rocks was estimated by indentation testing on small rock fragments. Here, the effects of rock fragment dimensions (particularly area and thickness) on indentation indices were studied. The investigation shows size...
Purpose – The research introduces means for improving premanufacturing processes (design, procurement and bidding) by leveraging digitalisation in offsite construction. Specifically, this paper proposes a framework that provides measures for the planning and implementation of digitalisation in...
Several sand control techniques have been used in SAGD wells in Western Canada. For most projects, slotted liners have been the sand control of choice for its economics, ease of use, and acceptable performance. Careful design of the slot geometry is crucial to maintaining...
In this Paper, UCS of limestone rock was determined by indentation testing on rock fragments. The size of the fragments was in the range of 2 to 5 mm, which is within the size range of drill cuttings. Here, scatter of the data was investigated by calculating the coefficient of variation that...
A Novel Sand Control Testing Facility to Evaluate the Impact of Radial Flow Regime on Screen Performance and its VerificationDownload
Optimum design of the sand control devices in oil sand reservoirs plays a vital role in minimizing the sand production and increasing the reservoir productivity in Steam-Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) operations. Various sand control testing facilities have been developed to evaluate the...
A Set of Graphical Design criteria for Slotted Liners in SteamAssisted Gravity Drainage Production WellsDownload
Slotted liners have been widely used in steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) wells owing to their low cost and superior mechanical integrity. Multiple factors affect the performance of slotted liners, such as particle size distribution (PSD) of formation sands, aperture size, slot density,...
In McMurray Formation, steam assisted gravity drainage is used as the primary in-situ recovery technique to recover oil sands. Different geological reservoir settings and long horizontal wells impose limitations and operational challenges on the implementation of steam-assisted gravity drainage...
Airspace Flow Programs (AFPs) assign ground delays to flights in order to limit flow through capacity constrained airspace regions. AFPs have been successful in controlling traffic with reasonable delays, but a new program called the Combined Trajectory Options Program, or CTOP, is being explored...
