SCADA Systems in World Gas & Oil Pipeline Operations and Gas Distribution Utilities

SCADA Systems in World Gas & Oil Pipeline Operations and Gas Distribution Utilities 2005-2007-All 3 Volumes

Descriptions

This study is the third worldwide study of gas and oil pipeline operations and gas distribution utilities (LDCs).

This new series will provide an in-depth appraisal of the central and remote site hardware, applications software, and communications services that oil and gas pipeline operations and gas distribution utilities will be requesting during their next round of procurements for SCADA systems.

The research study results in a comprehensive and informative series of reports on control systems usage patterns and plans of pipeline operations and gas distribution utilities worldwide. The research program will assess the market sizes and will contain projections on a world-region basis, for the next several years. A separate report profiling more than 50 suppliers of oil/gas pipeline SCADA-related systems, software and services will also be
available.

4D Seismic Handbook

4D Seismic Handbook

Description

4-D seismic reservoir monitoring: applications for real field situations in order to increase ultimate recovery of hydrocarbons.

In World Oil’s handbook of 4-D seismic reservoir monitoring, we have attempted to demonstrate with real case histories how the newly emerging paradigm of 4-D reservoir monitoring can be applied to real field situations in order to increase ultimate recovery of hydrocarbons. The printed version of the handbook is supplemented with a CD-ROM designed to provide more detail and source material about the technology discussed.

The CD-ROM contains the electronic version of the World Oil handbook series.  It is augmented with 5 additional case studies, Lamont 4-D™ Software demonstrations, more than 30 JAVA animations, and two 5 minute video trips to the Gulf of Mexico to observe 4-D projects in action with ABC News, the Discovery Channel and CNN.

Oil Field Production Geology

Oil Field Production Geology

By Mike Shepherd

This book was written for students, new professionals in oil companies, and for anyone with an interest in reservoir geology. It explains the background to production geology in the context of oil field subsurface operations. It also gives practical guidelines as to how a production geologist can analyze the reservoir geology and fluid flow characteristics of an oil field with the aim of improving hydrocarbon recovery. Advice is given on how to search for the remaining oil volumes in a producing field, where these pockets are typically found, and then how to plan wells to target these volumes.

Fundamentals of Carbon Capture and Storage Technology

Fundamentals of Carbon Capture and Storage Technology – A comprehensive guide to the fundamentals of CCS technology

By petroleum-economics

Descriptions

Carbon capture and storage is essential for a sustainable energy future in a world that faces constraints on the use of carbon but remains – for the foreseeable future – reliant on fossil fuels. CCS has the potential to make a quarter of the emissions reductions required to stabilise the atmospheric concentration of CO2 at 550 parts per million (ppm) and limit temperatures rises to 2ºC above pre-industrial levels.

Encouragingly, the technologies involved in CCS have been proved independently and capital is available. The big test facing governments is to create a policy environment that will allow companies to put these technologies together safely, at a reasonable cost and on a big enough scale to make a meaningful dent in global CO2 emissions.

Fundamentals of Carbon Capture and Storage Technology is an up to date assessment of the state of the industry and a valuable resource for:

* Government Policy Makers
* Lawyers
* Industry Executives
* Non-governmental organisations
* Analysts
* Bankers
