  • Continuum and combined continuum-discontinuum analysis of wellbore mechanics and stimulation response 

    Alruwaili, Khalid Mohammed M. (Heriot-Watt University Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society, 2016-08)
    Wellbore drilling and stimulation activities are interlinked processes within the task of borehole construction. Before drilling a well, the initial stress state in the rock can be defined by three principal stresses, with ...
  • A mechanistic study of CO2/brine relative permeability 

    Traki, Adel R. A. (Heriot-Watt University Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society, 2016-06)
    CO2 injection in geologic formations (hydrocarbon reservoirs as well as aquifers) is increasingly considered as a method for increasing oil recovery and, at the same time, storing CO2 in these formations to reduce the CO2 ...
  • Cloud-computing strategies for sustainable ICT utilization : a decision-making framework for non-expert Smart Building managers 

    Mualla, Karmin Jamil (Heriot-Watt University Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society, 2016-08)
    Virtualization of processing power, storage, and networking applications via cloud-computing allows Smart Buildings to operate heavy demand computing resources off-premises. While this approach reduces in-house costs and ...
  • The impact of shale pressure diffusion on 4D seismic interpretation 

    Rangel Gonzalez, Ricardo Elias (Heriot-Watt University Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society, 2016-10)
    Shale typically has a low but non-negligible permeability of the order of nanodarcys (recognized an appreciated in production of unconventional resources), which could affect the magnitude and pattern of the pressure in ...
  • Optimisation of hedging-integrated rule curves for reservoir operation 

    Chiamsathit, Chuthamat (Heriot-Watt University Energy, Geosciences, Infrastructure and Society, 2016-06)
    Reservoir managers use operational rule curves as guides for managing and operating reservoir systems. However, this approach saves no water for impending droughts, resulting in large shortages during such droughts. This ...
