            Oil spills are a serious marine disaster. Oil spill accidents occur usually in shipping, ports and offshore oil development. Although most of them are emergent events, once an oil spill occurs, it will cause great harm to the marine ecological environment, and it will also bring ...direct harm to the economic development along the affected coast as well as human health and public safety. Information Engineering of Emergency Treatment for Marine Oil Spill Accidents analyzes the causes of marine oil spill accidents, introduces China's emergency response system for marine oil spills, discusses the technologies such as remote sensing and monitoring of oil spill on the sea surface and oil fingerprint identification, studies model prediction of marine oil spill behavior and fate and emergency treatment technologies for oil spills on the sea surface, and emphatically introduces the emergency prediction and warning system for oil spills in the Bohai Sea and oil-spill-sensitive resources and emergency resource management system . Features: The status quo and causes of marine oil spill pollution, as well as hazards of oil spill on the sea were described. The emergency response system for marine oil spills were detailed. The model-based prediction methods of marine oil spills were described. A series of emergency treatment of oil spill on the sea were used and developed. This book serves as a reference book for scientific investigators who need to understand the key technologies for emergency response to marine oil spill accidents, including the current level and future development trend of China in this field.

            The expansion of unconventional petroleum resources in the recent decade and the rapid development of computational technology have provided the opportunity to develop and apply 3D numerical modeling technology to simulate the hydraulic fracturing of shale and tight sand formatio...ns. This book presents 3D numerical modeling technologies for hydraulic fracturing developed in recent years, and introduces solutions to various 3D geomechanical problems related to hydraulic fracturing. In the solution processes of the case studies included in the book, fully coupled multi-physics modeling has been adopted, along with innovative computational techniques, such as submodeling. In practice, hydraulic fracturing is an essential project component in shale gas/oil development and tight sand oil, and provides an essential measure in the process of drilling cuttings reinjection (CRI). It is also an essential measure for widened mud weight window (MWW) when drilling through naturally fractured formations; the process of hydraulic plugging is a typical application of hydraulic fracturing. 3D modeling and numerical analysis of hydraulic fracturing is essential for the successful development of tight oil/gas formations: it provides accurate solutions for optimized stage intervals in a multistage fracking job. It also provides optimized well-spacing for the design of zipper-frac wells. Numerical estimation of casing integrity under stimulation injection in the hydraulic fracturing process is one of major concerns in the successful development of unconventional resources. This topic is also investigated numerically in this book. Numerical solutions to several other typical geomechanics problems related to hydraulic fracturing, such as fluid migration caused by fault reactivation and seismic activities, are also presented. This book can be used as a reference textbook to petroleum, geotechnical and geothermal engineers, to senior undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students, and to

            Riveting and comprehensive...a smart, deeply researched primer on the subject. --The New York Times Book Review Windfall is the boldest profile of the world's energy resources since Daniel Yergin's The Quest, asserting that the new energy abundance--due to oil and gas resources o...nce deemed too expensive--is transforming the geo-political order and is boosting American power. As a new administration focuses on driving American energy production, O'Sullivan's refreshing and illuminating (Foreign Policy) Windfall describes how new energy realities have profoundly affected the world of international relations and security. New technologies led to oversupplied oil markets and an emerging natural gas glut. This did more than drive down prices--it changed the structure of markets and altered the way many countries wield power and influence. America's new energy prowess has global implications. It transforms politics in Russia, Europe, China, and the Middle East. O'Sullivan considers the landscape, offering insights and presenting consequences for each region's domestic stability as energy abundance upends traditional partnerships, creating opportunities for cooperation. The advantages of this new abundance are greater than its downside for the US: it strengthens American hard and soft power. This is a powerful argument for how America should capitalise on the 'New Energy Abundance' (The Financial Times) and an explanation of how new energy realities create a strategic environment to America's advantage.
