Coda Wave Interferometry analysis is studied for rocks subjected to brittle deformation which is induced by an Uniaxial Compressive Strength testing machine. Ultrasonic pulses, 1 MHz and 2.25MHz, are sent through rock samples and recorded throughout the loading up-to failure. A novel method is proposed, the rolling cross correlation, which can...

Producing an oil well is a transient process, and although we like to assume there is a steady state phase in the production life, it is a fragile situation. Due to the many unknowns in the reservoir, changes in well production performance cannot easily be predicted. Changes in the subsurface will influence the production and lifetime of the...

Water-flooding in heavy oils is generally not an efficient way of production due to high viscosity of heavy oil compared to water. Therefore, thermal recovery methods are commonly used in heavy oil production. Most thermal methods involve fluid injection to transfer heat further into the reservoir. Hot water-flooding is among these methods. In...

Shale gas became an important source of natural gas in the United States and is expected to contribute significantly to worldwide energy supply. This has been the main motivation for the research and development on shale gas. Shale gas is found in extremely low permeable organic rich formations that are either a source rock or a reservoir. Such...

One of the important aquifers for geothermal purposes in the Netherlands is the Lower Cretaceous Vlieland Sandstone Formation (VSF). The VSF is deposited in a eustatic transgressive phase and has a dispersed distribution in the northern Netherlands, which is not very well understood. This study produced a depositional model and a thickness map...

Geothermal energy production is an interesting alternative for the fossil energy production being depleted, being, a sustainable method with a lot of potential in the Netherlands and abroad. One of the main initiators of geothermal energy production in the Netherlands is the Delft Geothermal Project (DAP). Furthermore DAP supports the...

In-situ combustion (ISC) is an enhanced oil recovery process during which air or oxygen-enriched air is injected into a reservoir. The oil in the reservoir reacts with the oxygen and the so-called combustion front is formed and propagates through the reservoir, generating heat and flue gases. During the process, numerous chemical reactions take...

With the use of the process-based geological model Delft3D a base case model is set up to simulate the Brent delta using Gullfaks field conditions as appeared during the Aalenian and Bajocian periods in the Mid-Jurassic. The aim is to visualize and comprehend the morphology and stratigraphy of the base case upon changing both wave conditions and...

A number of core flow experiments were conducted with different polymer concentration solutions. The effluents were analyzed to obtain the retardation factors, which was used in the calculation of the permeability reduction. From this experimental work, it was observed that the retardation factor reduces with the increase in polymer...

This project develops a software tool to model pressure loss of two phase flow in the annulus of a well during underbalanced drilling. By adjusting the Mukherjee and Brill correlation for production/injection wells, insight into which parameters are of influence in predicting the frictional pressure drop during underbalanced drilling is gained....

Properties of soils are spatially variable and to describe the behaviour of soils as a response to loading, this variability appears crucial in giving the correct range of possible solutions for structure response. Because site investigation techniques only provide exact information at a limited part of the site, random field simulations are...

A few years ago a licentiate thesis was presented by K. Larsson on seismicity in Swedish mines compared with experienced seismicity abroad. This thesis was mainly focused on cut and fill mining and sublevel caving methods. Recently the Swedish mining company New Boliden started implementing transverse open stoping in the Lappberget ore body in...

Modeling sedimentary heterogeneities of reservoir rocks is typically performed using geostatistical methods. Geostatistics reproduce the spatial distribution of heterogeneities based on available data. There are several geostatistical methods to build 3D reservoir model simulations, such as the object-based or variogram-based methods. MINES...

The rapid rates of sea level change in the Caspian Sea since its formation (Proterozoic) have resulted in unique sedimentary sequences, including many oil and gas reservoirs. An important hydrocarbon province is the fine grained-sandstone of the Productive Series in the South Caspian Basin that consist for at least some part of sheetflood...

Roads support our daily life, and play crucial role in supporting the infrastructure for economic activities. However, road disaster can be caused by different natural conditions of slope failures such as rainfall, steep topography, brittle geology, etc. Road disaster occurrences do not only cause the primary disaster from the infrastructure...

The mechanical behavior of rock salt has been studied for many decades. Early engineering studies were driven largely by the need to design safe salt mines. In recent times more of the study is concerned to understand the long term behavior of the rock salt to develop and assess the safety of rock salt deposits for the storage of radio active...

Interfacial tension and contact angles are used for the determination of wettability of reservoirs. This knowledge is important in determining capillary pressure and also relative permeabilities. Representative values for field conditions require the determination of these quantities at high pressure and temperature. The paper at hand gives a...
