Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/en11071769

Climate change poses profound threats to the Earth and its people. Its mitigation, therefore, demands common but differentiated actions with comprehensive and coordinated approach. The global community has pledged to mitigate various greenhouse gases... Read More

Optimization of hydraulic fracture placement design in anisotropic shale reservoirs using azimuthal lwd sonic and spectral gamma ray analysis. (2018)
Journal Article
OLUYEMI, G.F. and AFOLABI, T.S. 2018. Optimization of hydraulic fracture placement design in anisotropic shale reservoirs using azimuthal lwd sonic and spectral gamma ray analysis. International journal of petroleum engineering [online], 3(2), pages 83-94. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1504/IJPE.2018.093154

Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) of shale resources has become a trend in the oil and gas industry that is associated with exorbitant costs. This calls for certainty in the productivity and success of every fracture stimulation program. Current fracki... Read More

Nuclear energy development in Bangladesh: a study of opportunities and challenges. (2018)
Journal Article
KARIM, R., KARIM, M.E., MUHAMMAD-SUKKI, F., ABU-BAKAR, S.H., BANI, N.A., MUNIR, A.B., KABIR, A.I., ARDILA-REY, J.A. and MAS'UD, A.A. 2018. Nuclear energy development in Bangladesh: a study of opportunities and challenges. Energies [online], 11(7), article number 1672. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/en11071672

It is a challenging task for Bangladesh to meet its increasing demand of energy while its economy is rapidly growing. Though prices of oil, coal, and fossil fuels around the world have been volatile, the price trend in Bangladesh demonstrates a persi... Read More

Dynamic adsorption of residual hydrocarbon oil from treated produced water on chitosan. (2018)
Presentation / Conference
OLUYEMI, G.F. and ARAB, H. 2018. Dynamic adsorption of residual hydrocarbon oil from treated produced water on chitosan. Presented at the 16th TUV SUD NEL produced water workshop 2018, 5-6 June 2018, Aberdeen, UK.

In this work Chitosan was investigated as an adsorbent for residual oil using real produced water stream from Kuwait oilfields. A laboratory bench-top glass tube column integrated with a dynamic flow loop was used in this investigation. Chitosan grai... Read More

Innovative hydrocarbons recovery and utilization technology using reactor-separation membranes for off-gases emission during crude oil shuttle tanker transportation and natural gas processing. (2018)
Thesis
SHEHU, H. 2018. Innovative hydrocarbons recovery and utilization technology using reactor-separation membranes for off-gases emission during crude oil shuttle tanker transportation and natural gas processing. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations in the atmosphere, as well as the high rate of depletion of hydrocarbon-based resources have become a global concern. A major source of emissions of hydrocarbon vapours occur during loading and offl... Read More

Mechanical, thermal, and flammability behaviour of low density polyethylene - oil based mud fillers nanocomposites. (2018)
Presentation / Conference
SIDDIQUE, S., SMITH, G.D., YATES, K. and NJUGUNA, J. 2018. Mechanical, thermal, and flammability behaviour of low density polyethylene - oil based mud fillers nanocomposites. Presented at the 4th International conference on structural nano composites (NANOSTRUC 2018), 23-24 May 2018, Berlin, Germany.

Novel low density polyethylene (LDPE)/Oil based mud fillers (OBMF) nanocomposites were manufactured by a melt compounding process. Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy was used to characterise the structure of the nanocomposites. The result... Read More
