Impact of Casing Eccentricity on Cement Sheath

Figure 3. Sketch of a casing–cement–formation system in a horizontal well.

Impact of Casing Eccentricity on Cement Sheath To better understand stress distribution in eccentric cement sheaths, an analytical model is proposed in this paper. By comparing the results of this model with the one’s with centric casing, the impacts of the casing eccentricity on the integrity of the cement sheath is

  The Domino Effect Author Russell Braziel   The Domino Effect Abstract The shale revolution triggered The Domino Effect, a cascading series of events that has profoundly transformed energy markets, reshaped major related industries and remodeled the global economic and geopolitical landscape. This book presents a unique, integrated perspective on natural gas, crude oil and natural gas

Cyclic CH4 Injection for Enhanced Oil Recovery in the Eagle Ford Shale Reservoirs

Figure 1. The sketch of CH4 injection process in the fractured horizontal well (CH4 molecules diffuse into different nanopores).

The confined phase behavior was incorporated in the model considering the critical property shifts and capillary pressure. Subsequently, we built a field-scale simulation model of the Eagle Ford shale reservoir. The fluid properties under different pore sizes were evaluated. Finally, a series of studies were conducted to examine the contributions of

Pore Structure Characterization and the Controlling Factors of the Bakken Formation

Figure 1. Location of the Williston Basin and study area.

The Bakken Formation develops micropores, mesopores, and macropores. However, the Upper and Lower Bakken shale are dominated by micropores, while the Middle Bakken tight reservoir is dominated by mesopores. The total pore volume and specific surface area of the Middle Bakken are significantly higher than those of the Upper and

Economic Exposure to Oil Price Shocks and the Fragility of Oil-Exporting Countries

Figure 3. Map of oil exporting countries (2014).

The lack of a sovereign wealth fund, in combination with limited oil reserves, makes parts of Sub-Saharan Africa particularly vulnerable to sustained periods of low oil prices. Next, we estimate the macroeconomic impacts of a 60% oil price drop for all regions in the world. A numerical simulation yields a
