Multi-criteria material selection for casing pipe in shale gas wells application. (2022)
Journal Article
MOHAMMED, A.I., BARTLETT, M., OYENEYIN, B., KAYVANTASH, K. and NJUGUNA, J. 2022. Multi-criteria material selection for casing pipe in shale gas wells application. Journal of petroleum exploration and production technology [online], Online First. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s13202-022-01506-0

The conventional method of casing selection is based on availability and/or order placement to manufacturers based on certain design specifications to meet the anticipated downhole conditions. This traditional approach is very much dependent on exper... Read More about Multi-criteria material selection for casing pipe in shale gas wells application..

An investigation of casing structural integrity in shale gas horizontal wells during hydraulic fracturing using FEA and machine learning algorithms. (2021)
Thesis
MOHAMMED, A.I. 2021. An investigation of casing structural integrity in shale gas horizontal wells during hydraulic fracturing using FEA and machine learning algorithms. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis. Hosted on OpenAIR [online]. Available from: https://doi.org/10.48526/rgu-wt-1603216

Unconventional oil and gas operators are currently facing the challenge of casing lateral buckling and/or deformation during shale gas wells stimulation through hydraulic fracturing. Failure of the casing during this process can lead to huge financia...

An application of FEA and machine learning for the prediction and optimisation of casing buckling and deformation responses in shale gas wells in an in-situ operation. (2021)
Journal Article
MOHAMMED, A.I., BARTLETT, M., OYENEYIN, B., KAYVANTASH, K. and NJUGUNA, J. 2021. An application of FEA and machine learning for the prediction and optimisation of casing buckling and deformation responses in shale gas wells in an in-situ operation. Journal of natural gas science and engineering [online], 95, article 104221. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jngse.2021.104221

This paper proposes a novel way to study the casing structural integrity using two approaches of finite element analysis (FEA) and machine learning. The approach in this study is unique, as it captures the pertinent parameters influencing the casing...

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..
