            Fossil Fuels (PDF ebook – New ed.)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            Fossil fuels are non-renewable resources which form over millions of years. Global reserves are being depleted faster than new ones are being made. Aside from diminishing availability and rising costs, the production and use of fossil fuels raises environmental concerns. As a maj...or producer of coal, oil and gas, Australia is heavily reliant on fossil fuels, which have underpinned Australia's energy and industrial sectors for the past century. Growing household energy consumption is an important contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, particularly because of Australia's reliance on coal for electricity generation. While coal and gas are the lowest cost fuel sources for electricity in Australia, they have much higher greenhouse gas emissions than renewable energy sources. What steps is Australia taking to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and increase energy efficiency and sustainability? This book examines Australia's non-renewable and renewable energy resources and production, and energy consumption and costs. What is the controversial role of coal seam gas in our energy mix? Will 'peak oil' force the globe to eventually adapt to petroleum-free alternatives such as hydrogen for transport fuel? What is the future of fossil fuels, and how is Australia going to power itself through to the next century? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.

            Pressure and Temperature Well Testing

            The book comprises two parts: Pressure and Flow Well Testing (Part I) and Temperature Well Testing (Part II), and contains numerous authors' developments. Due to the similarity in Darcy's and Fourier's laws the same differential diffusivity equation describes the transient flow o...f incompressible fluid in porous medium and heat conduction in solids. Therefore it is reasonable to assume that the techniques and data processing procedures of pressure well tests can be applied to temperature well tests. The book presents new methods to determine the formation of permeability and skin factors from tests conducted in simulated wells, designing interference well tests, processing constant bottom-hole pressure tests, estimation of the formation temperature and geothermal gradients from temperature surveys and logs, in-situ determination of the formation thermal conductivity and contact thermal resistance of boreholes, temperature regime of boreholes (cementing of production liners), and the recovery of thermal equilibrium in deep and superdeep wells. Processing and analysis of pressure and geothermal data are shown on numerous field examples from different regions of the world. The book is intended for students, engineers, and researchers in the field of hydrocarbon geophysics and geology, groundwater searching and exploitation, and subsurface environment examination. It will be also useful for specialists studying pressure and temperature in parametric deep and superdeep wells.
