Understanding the Impact of Chemicals in Produced Water in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Projects
| By Aquateam COWI
Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is a generic term used for increasing the amounts of crude oil that can be extracted from an oil reservoir or an oilfield. Usually this is done in an effort to increase the output of a matured field where conventional-recovery methods have been exhausted. EOR efforts require strong reservoir characterization techniques i.e. fractured network mapping, permeability distribution through well tests, and permeability up-scaling.

Meeting Future Environmental Challenges Onshore
| By Aquateam COWI
Biological wastewater treatment processes are well-known to the oiland gas-refining industry. The activated sludge biological water treatment process is used in conjunction with plate separators and chemical/physical processes such as coagulation/flocculation and flotation for wastewater treatment in refineries worldwide. Increasing oil prices and enhanced oil recovery techniques, including oil production in mature fields with high volumes of water produced, at the same time as the tightening of environmental regulations in many areas, not only bring challenges offshore in terms of the management of produced water for the upstream oil industry, but also lead the downstream industry into a new arena with respect to water and waste management.

Monitoring Microbial Activity in Petroleum Systems
| By Aquateam COWI
Microbial activity in petroleum systems causes serious operational problems, including biofouling, reservoir souring and corrosion, resulting in economic loss to the industry world wide. Molecular techniques for microbial monitoring provide valuable information about microbial identity, numbers, and abundance in a given system. They however often lack in providing information about the metabolic activity and the functional interaction of the microorganisms with their environment.

Generate Clean Energy More Efficiently With Powerful Data Analytics
| By CAMO Software
Advanced data analysis tools can help renewable energy companies operate more efficiently, from R&D - such as developing more efficient solar panels and more robust wind turbine blades - to solving common problems such as predicting turbine breakdowns and optimising the use of equipment depending on local conditions and demand.

Combining First Principle Models with MVA and DOE
| By CAMO Software
Chemical engineering is a discipline that to a certain degree relies on deterministic or first principle models. These models may describe flow rates, mass balance, energy and other principal properties of a system. But to quote the famous chemist/statistician George Box: “All models are wrong but some are useful”.

CAMO Delves into Assumption Free Modeling and Monitoring of Batch Processes
| By CAMO Software
Modeling strategies currently in use for the monitoring of batch processes wheremultivariate data are available have some limitations, particularly for batches where the true starting or end point are not the same on an absolute time scale, or the batch progression varies among batches.

Intertec: Passively-Cooled Shelters for Remote Equipment in Hot and Arid Climates
| By Intertec
The reliability of electronics equipment is dramatically shortened if it operates in very hot conditions, which is why much electronic equipment incorporates fan cooling. Equipment builders designing for arid climates have always faced considerable environmental protection problems. Traditional cooling techniques require a power supply, which often poses severe difficulties. The problem is growing bigger as the topology of SCADA evolves towards more distributed and unmanned systems, and new solutions are being sought. Although solar cells and DC powered air conditioning techniques are making progress, their relative lack of efficiency, together with the problems of battery lifecycles in hot climates, continues to make environmental protection complicated and expensive.
