A semi-empirical approach to modelling well deliverability in gas condensate reservoirs. (2011)
Thesis
UGWU, J.O. 2011. A semi-empirical approach to modelling well deliverability in gas condensate reservoirs. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

A critical issue in the development of gas condensate reservoirs is accurate prediction of well deliverability. In this investigation a procedure has been developed for accurate prediction of well production rates using semi-empirical approach. The u...

Scale effects in testing of a monopile support structure submerged in tidal currents. (2011)
Thesis
OKORIE, O.P. 2011. Scale effects in testing of a monopile support structure submerged in tidal currents. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Climate change and energy security are key issues motivating the development of Tidal Current Energy (TCE) technology. Small scale model testing of TCE devices is a major challenge facing the technology due to turbulent flow in tidal currents environ...

On-line measurement of partial discharges in high voltage rotating machines. (2011)
Thesis
JOSHI, A.R. 2011. On-line measurement of partial discharges in high voltage rotating machines. Robert Gordon University, MPhil thesis.

The on-line condition monitoring of rotating machines is given paramount importance, particularly in Oils and Gas industries where the financial implications of machine shutdown is very high. This project work was directed towards the on-line conditi... Read More about On-line measurement of partial discharges in high voltage rotating machines..

Well engineering concepts to make methane gas hydrate exploitation affordable. (2011)
Thesis
STEWART, D. 2011. Well engineering concepts to make methane gas hydrate exploitation affordable. Robert Gordon University, DEng thesis.

There are anticipated to be substantial global deposits of land and seabed methane gas hydrates. The volume of methane gas trapped in these methane gas hydrates is calculated to be at least twice the volume of current global reserves of oil & gas as...

The contribution of small-scale wind and photovoltaic renewable energy sources to the Scottish energy mix. (2011)
Thesis
FOWLER, A.M. 2011. The contribution of small-scale wind and photovoltaic renewable energy sources to the Scottish energy mix. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Energy needs in the UK are currently met primarily through the use of finite resources, such as oil, coal and gas. The use of these fuels has led to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions. There is a need for a more localised and sustainable energy... Read More about The contribution of small-scale wind and photovoltaic renewable energy sources to the Scottish energy mix..
