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...

Investigation of slug-churn flow induced transient excitation forces at pipe bend. (2019)
Journal Article
HOSSAIN, M., CHINENYE-KANU, N.M., DROUBI, G.M. and ISLAM, S.Z. 2019. Investigation of slug-churn flow induced transient excitation forces at pipe bend. Journal of fluids and structures [online], 91, article ID 102733. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jfluidstructs.2019.102733

Numerical simulations of two-phase flow induced fluctuating forces at a pipe bend have been carried out to study the characteristics of multiphase flow induced vibration (FIV). The multiphase flow patterns and turbulence were modelled using the volum... Read More about Investigation of slug-churn flow induced transient excitation forces at pipe bend..

A new CFD approach for proppant transport in unconventional hydraulic fractures. (2019)
Journal Article
SURI, Y., ISLAM, S.Z. and HOSSAIN, M. 2019. A new CFD approach for proppant transport in unconventional hydraulic fractures. Journal of natural gas science and engineering [online], 70, article number 102951. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jngse.2019.102951

For hydraulic fracturing design in unconventional reservoirs, the existing proppant transport models ignore the fluid leak-off effect from the fracture side wall and the effect of fracture roughness. In this paper, a model is proposed using three-dim... Read More about A new CFD approach for proppant transport in unconventional hydraulic fractures..

Computational fluid dynamics study of yield power law drilling fluid flow through smooth-walled fractures. (2019)
Journal Article
AHAMMAD, F., MAHMUD, S. and ISLAM, S.Z. 2019. Computational fluid dynamics study of yield power law drilling fluid flow through smooth-walled fractures. Journal of petroleum exploration and production technology [online], 9(4), pages 2717-2727. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s13202-019-0646-5

Presence of natural fractures in sub-surface makes an oil well drilling operation very challenging. As one of the major functions of drilling mud is to maintain bottomhole pressure inside a wellbore to avoid any invasion of unwanted high-pressure inf...
