A NEW APPROACH TO MODEL FRICTION LOSSES IN THE WATER-ASSISTED PIPELINE TRANSPORTATION OF HEAVY OIL AND BITUMENDownload
Water lubricated pipe flow technology is an economic alternative for the long distance transportation of viscous oils like heavy oil and bitumen. The lubricated flow regime involves an oil-rich core surrounded by a turbulent water annulus. Energy consumption associated with this type of pipeline...
Developing High Precision Heat Capacity Correlations for Organic Solids and Liquids - Extending to Biofuels and SugarsDownload
There is a great need for easily accessible and accurate physical property data in the heavy oil industry, the pharmaceutical industry, and other heavy molecule guided productions. In recent years, high precision predictive correlations for isobaric heat capacities of heavy and ill-defined...
A common problem in naturally fractured reservoirs (NFRs) is a lack of data caused by few wells; or at least, few wells with core or borehole images. Secondary data (such as seismic) can be used to improve predictions of fracture intensity in between the wells. Common geostatistical techniques...
Phenotypic correlations of fatty acid composition among intramuscular, subcutaneous and intermuscular fat tissues in concentrate-fed beef cattle of differing genotypesDownload
In an attempt to predict intramuscular fatty acid composition using easily accessible fat depots, between-tissue correlations were studied in 75 Asturiana de los Valles bulls with different levels of muscular hypertrophy, and 25 Asturiana de la Montaña bulls. Trans-18:1 in intramuscular fat was...
Prediction of naphthenic acid species degradation by kinetic and surrogate models during the ozonation of oil sands process-affected water
The objective was to determine if end-of-test residual metabolizable energy intake (RMEI) is correlated with RMEI values calculated earlier in the test on steers fed two forage (silage) or four forage-grain diets. As the days on test increased the variation in RMEI decreased in all diets. In all...
