Coal Bed Methane: From Prospect to Pipeline by Pramod Thakur, Steve Schatzel, Kashy Aminian

By Pramod Thakur, Steve Schatzel, Kashy Aminian

Coal mattress Methane: From Prospect to Pipeline is the complaints of the 25th anniversary of the North American Coal mattress Methane discussion board. It offers the most recent developments within the construction of coal mattress methane overlaying quite a few themes, from exploration to gasoline processing, for advertisement usage. also, it provides the foundation of gasoline in coal, reservoir engineering, keep watch over of methane in coal mines, creation ideas, water administration, and fuel processing.

The monstrous coal assets in the United States continue to supply large quantities of common fuel, contributing to a various diversity strength resources. Following a fast development and next plateau in technological advancements, this ebook captures the whole lifestyles cycle of a good and provides petroleum geologists and engineers a unmarried resource of a vast diversity of coal mattress methane purposes. This e-book addresses the most important technical subject matters, together with exploration and assessment of coal mattress reservoirs; hydraulic fracturing of CBM wells; coal seam degasification; and construction engineering and processing, between others. It additionally covers felony concerns, allowing, and financial research of CBM projects.

  • Edited through a crew of coal mattress methane specialists from undefined, academia and executive who've greater than seventy five years of mixed event within the field
  • Authored by means of well-recognized contributors of the gasoline and coal undefined, universities, US executive departments, similar to the dept of power and the nationwide Institute of Occupational safeguard and health and wellbeing (NIOSH)
  • More than 2 hundred figures, pictures, and illustrations relief within the figuring out of the elemental concepts
  • Presents the complete scope of advancements in US strength independence, coal mine protection, and greenhouse gasoline emissions

On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) floating drilling rig suffered a catastrophic explosion and hearth. 11 males died within the explosion ― 17 others have been injured. the fireplace, which burned for an afternoon and a part, finally despatched the total rig to the ground of the ocean.

Designing for Human Reliability: Human Factors Engineering in the Oil, Gas, and Process Industries

Underestimates the level to which behaviour at paintings is encouraged by way of the layout of the operating surroundings. Designing for Human Reliability argues that larger expertise of the contribution of layout to human mistakes can considerably improve HSE functionality and increase go back on funding. Illustrated with many examples, Designing for Human Reliability explores why paintings structures are designed and applied such that "design-induced human mistakes" turns into more-or-less inevitable.
