Tin in antiquity : its mining and trade throughout the ancient world with particular reference to Cornwall

Tin in Antiquity is the 1st complete heritage of the early metallurgy of tin, a mine of data in this infrequent, hugely prized steel so very important to the constructing civilization of the Bronze Age. The origins of tin have continuously been a secret, however the writer has unearthed archaeological proof from worldwide to track the tinfields used sooner than the invention of eu deposits.

Time Lapse Approach to Monitoring Oil, Gas, and CO2 Storage by Seismic Methods

Time Lapse method of tracking Oil, gasoline, and CO2 garage via Seismic tools supplies a brand new expertise to geoscientists, good logging specialists, and reservoir engineers, giving them a brand new foundation on which to persuade judgements on oil and gasoline reservoir administration. Named throughout (Accurately managed and regularly Operated sign System), this new overview approach is gifted to handle extra advanced reservoirs, comparable to shale and heavy oil.

Types of Invert-Emulsion Muds. FLC ¼ ferroelectric liquid crystals. the mud systems most commonly used today, along with their principal components and general characteristics [adapted from Darley & Gray]. 3 Drilling Fluid Selection Drilling-fluid costs can constitute a significant fraction of the overall costs of drilling a well. Often the cost is quoted per unit length drilled, which takes into account any problems encountered (and avoided), such as stuck pipe. In many cases, the cost ascribed to the fluid also includes costs associated with solids control/management and waste disposal.

In many cases, the cost ascribed to the fluid also includes costs associated with solids control/management and waste disposal.

This, in turn, requires accurate characterization of the drilled solids, along with optimal engineering and maintenance of the drilling fluid. 2 CHARACTERIZATION OF SOLIDS IN DRILLING FLUIDS Selecting, arranging, and operating solids-removal equipment to optimize the drilling-fluid cleaning process require accurate information about the intrinsic nature of the cuttings (drilled solids) and solid additives. 1 Nature of Drilled Solids and Solid Additives Particle size, density, shape, and concentration affect virtually every piece of equipment used to separate drilled solids and/or weighting material from the drilling fluid.
