Oil and Gas Producers Find Frac Hits in Shale Wells a Major Challenge
In North America’s most active shale fields, the drilling and hydraulic fracturing of new wells is directly placing older adjacent wells at risk of suffering a premature decline in oil and gas production.
Digital Image Correlation: A New Way To Look at Hydraulic Fracturing
Technology that allows researchers to see stress forming inside rock samples may help unravel some of the mysteries associated with fracture behavior.
Tapping Difficult Oil in a Giant Carbonate Field in Qatar
After 70 years of production, more than 30% of the Arab C reservoir stock-tank original oil in place has been recovered through various mechanisms including natural depletion, waterflooding, gas lift implementation, and horizontal-well development.
Online Digital Rock Portal Launches
In an effort to foster collaboration in an area where there is currently very little, researchers at the University of Texas at Austin (UT) created a new web-based application for storing and sharing CT images of rocks.
Enhancing Well-Work Efficiency With Data Mining and Predictive Analytics
