Zwitterionic Surfactant for EOR in Tight Carbonate Reservoir: Physico-Chemical Interaction and Microfluidic StudyDownload
Recently, during surfactant aided recovery processes for unconventional reservoirs, carboxybetaine based zwitterionic surfactants (CnDmCB) have attracted attention due to their good tolerance to high saline produced water, remarkable water solubility, and ultra-low interfacial tension (IFT) at...
This thesis presents the formulation of geo-mechanical design parameters using a combination of laboratory and insitu test results in the heavily overconsolidated cohesive till formation in the city of Edmonton. These data were then used in the design of the recently constructed North LRT twin...
What Makes a Project Safe? Identifying the Impacts Factors Have on the Safety Performance of a Construction Site through Use of Artificial Neural NetworksDownload
What makes a construction project safe? This question prompted this research project. The goal was to identify factors and quantify their impact on the safety performance of construction projects. The first step in achieving this goal was to research key performance indicators in the area of...
Abstract Abundant hydrocarbon resources in low-permeability formations are now accessible due to technological advances in multi-lateral horizontal drilling and multi-stage hydraulic fracturing operations. The recovery of hydrocarbons is enhanced by the creation of extensive fracture networks....
Wettability Alteration by Chemical Agents at Elevated Temperatures and Pressures to Improve Heavy-Oil RecoveryDownload
The thermal method is the primary method used to improve the recovery from reservoirs with heavy or extra-heavy oil. However, the efficiency and economic costliness of the traditional thermal process are limited by the unfavorable interfacial properties of heavy oil/water (steam)/rock system....
Ductile steel plate shear walls are an established lateral load resisting system. Past research indicates that cold-rolled infill panels less than 1 mm in thickness present one solution to an overstrength problem arising from selecting an infill panel thickness based on ease of welding and...
We Used to Drink Our Water: Understanding the causes and consequences of boil water advisories in rural drinking water wellsDownload
Access to safe, reliable drinking water in many First Nations in Canada lags significantly behind the access available in non-First Nations communities. This thesis explores the sources, pathways, and consequences of bacteriological contamination in drinking water wells in Samson Cree Nation. A...
Hydraulic fracturing treatment has been increasingly applied to stimulate shale gas reservoirs. During hydraulic fracturing, a large amount of fracturing water is injected into the target formation. However, only a small fraction of injected fluid, typically 10 to 20 %, can be recovered during...
Using water quality models to predict disinfectant concentrations in water distribution systems requires a knowledge of the wall decay coefficient. In this study, field water sampling was conducted in conjunction with a SynerGEE Water hydraulic model for an area of the water distribution system...
