Prediction of casing critical buckling during shale gas hydraulic fracturing. (2019)
Journal Article
MOHAMMED, A.I., OYENEYIN, B., BARTLETT, M. and NJUGUNA, J. 2020. Prediction of casing critical buckling during shale gas hydraulic fracturing. Journal of petroleum science and engineering [online], 185, article ID 106655. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.petrol.2019.106655

Casing deformation during volume fracturing in shale gas horizontal wells is caused by both existing and induced stresses. These stresses jointly alter and compound the stress field around the casing leading to inefficient well stimulation as planned...

Casing structural integrity and failure modes in a range of well types: a review. (2019)
Journal Article
MOHAMMED, A.I., OYENEYIN, B., ATCHISON, B. and NJUGUNA, J. 2019. Casing structural integrity and failure modes in a range of well types: a review. Journal of natural gas science and engineering [online], 68, article ID 102898. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jngse.2019.05.011

This paper focus on factors attributing to casing failure, their failure mechanism and the resulting failure mode. The casing is a critical component in a well and the main mechanical structural barrier element that provide conduits and avenue for oi...

Biofuels in the quest for sustainable energy development. (2011)
Journal Article
ADAM, I.K., GALADIMA, A. and MUHAMMAD, A.I. 2011. Biofuels in the quest for sustainable energy development. Journal of sustainable development [online], 4(3), pages 10-19. Available from: https://doi.org/10.5539/jsd.v4n3p10

The numerous energy challenges facing the world coupled with the lack of sustainability of the non-renewable 'fossil fuels world' has led the search to sustainable alternatives. Biofuel has emerged as an alternative with great promise with quite some... Read More about Biofuels in the quest for sustainable energy development..
