Natural Gas Hydrates

A Guide for Engineers


Gulf Professional Publishing, 2003.

ISBNs 9780750675697

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): This is the most exhaustive study to date on natural gas hydrates. In spite of their importance, hydrates are misunderstood, and misconceptions abound. This book provides an accurate review of what hydrates are and under what conditions they will form, and it provides the engineer with the methods to predict the occurrences of hydrates.

The petroleum industry spends millions every year to combat the formation of hydrates, the solid, crystalline compounds that form from water and small molecules, damaging equipment and plugging transmission lines. Understanding how, when, and where they form and using this knowledge to apply remedies in practical applications are crucial.

* The most comprehensive study of natural gas hydrates

* A manual for the engineer or textbook for the student

* Contains cutting-edge solutions to natural gas hydrate problems

Natural History of an Arctic Oil Field, The

Development and the Biota


Academic Press, 2000.

ISBNs 9780127012353

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): In spite of the harsh conditions that characterize the Arctic, it is a surprisingly fragile ecosystem. The exploration for oil in the Arctic over the past 30 years has had profound effects on the plants and animals that inhabit this frozen clime. The Natural History of an Arctic Oil Field synthesizes decades of research on these myriad impacts. Specialists with years of field experience have contributed to this volume to create the first widely available synopsis of the ecology and wildlife biology of animals and plants living in close association with an actively producing oil field.
* First widely available synthesis of arctic oil field ecology and wildlife biology
* Concise yet readable treatment of a diverse polar ecosystem
* Useful for land managers, policy makers as well as ecologists, and population biologists
* Chapters authored by recognized authorities and contributions are peer-reviewed for accuracy and scientific rigor
* Illustrations attractively designed to enhance comprehension

Oil Field Chemicals


Gulf Professional Publishing, 2003.

ISBNs 9780750677035

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Oil field chemicals are gaining increasing importance, as the resources of crude oil are decreasing. An increasing demand of more sophisticated methods in the exploitation of the natural resources emerges for this reason. This book reviews the progress in the area of oil field chemicals and additives of the last decade from a rather chemical view. The material presented is a compilation from the literature by screening critically approximately 20,000 references. The text is ordered according to applications, just in the way how the jobs are emerging in practice. It starts with drilling, goes to productions and ends with oil spill. Several chemicals are used in multiple disciplines, and to those separate chapters are devoted. Two index registers are available, an index of chemical substances and a general index.

* Gives an introduction to the chemically orientated petroleum engineer.

* Provides the petroleum engineer involved with research and development with a quick reference tool.

* Covers interdisciplinary matter, i.e. connects petroleum recovery and handling with chemical aspects.

Oil Spill Environmental Forensics

Fingerprinting And Source Identification


Academic Press, 2007.

ISBNs 9780123695239

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Oil Spill Environmental Forensics provides a complete view of the various forensic techniques used to identify the source of an oil spill into the environment. The forensic procedures described within represent various methods from scientists throughout the world. The authors explore which analytical and interpretative techniques are best suited for a particular oil spill project.

This handy reference also explores the use of these techniques in actual environmental oil spills. Famous incidents discussed include the Exxon Valdez incident in 1989 and the Guanabara Bay, Brazil 2000. The authors chronicle both the successes and failures of the techniques used for each of these events.

Dr. Zhendi Wang is a senior research scientist and Head of Oil Spill Research of Environment Canada, working in the oil and toxic chemical spill research field. He has authored over 270 academic publications and won a number of national and international scientific honors and awards. Dr. Wang is a member of American Chemical Society (ACS), the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC), and the International Society of Environmental Forensics (ISEF).

*International experts show readers the forensic techniques used in oil spill investigations
*Provides the theoretical basis and practical applications for investigative techniques
*Contains numerous case studies demonstrating proven techniques

Paradigms Lost

Learning from Environmental Mistakes, Mishaps, and Misdeeds


Butterworth-Heinemann, 2005.

ISBNs 9780750678889

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Engineers and scientists have made great progress in advancing the understanding of the principles underlying environmental quality and public health. However, all too often, society and the scientific community do not realize the connections between environmental occurrences. In their haste to remedy a situation, they overlook lessons that could be learned to prevent future disasters. Paying attention to the past instructs us about the future.

Paradigms Lost combines the historical case perspective with credible and sound scientific explanations of key environmental disasters and problems. The author sorts through natural disasters and human mistakes from Love Canal, New York to Bhopal, India to provide larger lessons that can be applied by scientists, engineers and public safety officials. The analysis of these events includes viable alternatives for future generations.

* Includes alternative approaches to environmental issues from preventative measures to contingency plans

* Richly annotated with sidebars, discussion boxes and generous examples from Exxon Valdez and Love Canal to Agent Orange and Bhopal

* A usable tool for all professionals from lawyers to chemical engineers
