Improvement to hydrocyclone used in separating particles from produced water in the oil and gas industry. (2020)
Thesis
ADEWOYE, A.J. 2020. Improvement to hydrocyclone used in separating particles from produced water in the oil and gas industry. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis. Hosted on OpenAIR [online]. Available from: https://doi.org/10.48526/rgu-wt-1357822

Hydrocyclone is used to separate particles from produced water. It can be used in different industries, including oil and gas, water treatment and pharmaceutical (among others). The hydrocyclone can effectively separate particles larger than 10μm, bu... Read More about Improvement to hydrocyclone used in separating particles from produced water in the oil and gas industry..

Proppant transport in dynamically propagating hydraulic fractures using CFD-XFEM approach. [Dataset] (2020)
Dataset
ISLAM, S., HOSSAIN, M. and SURI, Y. 2020. Proppant transport in dynamically propagating hydraulic fractures using CFD-XFEM approach. [Dataset]. Hosted on Mendeley Data [online]. Available from: https://doi.org/10.17632/sdzxzd9krm.1

The aim of this research was to find a dynamic and integrated numerical model that uses computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technique to model the fluid flow with proppant transport and Extended finite element method (XFEM) to model the fracture propa...

Petrophysical and geomechanical characterization of a marginal (Wabi) field reservoir in north-central Niger Delta. (2019)
Thesis
ZORASI, C.B. 2019. Petrophysical and geomechanical characterization of a marginal (Wabi) field reservoir in north-central Niger Delta. Robert Gordon University [online], MRes thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

The aim of this study is to evaluate marginal field petrophysical and geomechanical parameters, and to develop a model for analysis of geomechanical problems, in order to mitigate stress-related issues in drilling, development and reservoir managemen...
