  • Storozuk, Robert (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    Current parameters used to determine gas emission levels in small aircraft are mainly theoretical. This project develops a practical method that can be universally applied to most small aircraft to collect gas samples and ...
  • Erickson, Tyler; Huang, Wendy (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    Manganese removal is often required to meet drinking water standards. Conventional practices involve chemical oxidation; however, biological removal is a viable alternative. In preliminary experiments, Variovorax bacteria ...
  • Howard, Cameron; Howard, Morgan (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    The Nexen Long Lake Project utilizes SAGD (Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage) to produce bitumen that is buried well below the earth’s surface, but the process is energy intensive and requires large volumes of water. Nexen ...
  • Lertnimoolchai, Yanee; Ogunrinde, Kanyin (Fa, 2011-04-02)
    The proper bit can increase the rate of penetration (ROP) and reduce overall drilling costs. Conventional analytical optimization methods alone are not sufficient due to the complexity and non linearity of the factors ...
  • Ghotra, Varinder; Hyder, Zeshan (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    The objective of this project is to use computer modelling groups (CMG) to simulate the data collected from detailed experimental work conducted at the University of Regina into three heavy oil recovery techniques: water ...
  • Kubeisinova, Assol; Karsybayev, Kuat (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    This project investigates the influence of wormhole formation processes on cold heavy oil production with sand (CHOPS) well performance. Wormhole formation processes are simulated by means of a commercial simulator based ...
  • Richardson, Jenna; Hearn, Cathleen (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    Cold Heavy Oil Production with Sand (CHOPS) produces large amounts of sand, which is stockpiled before being disposed of into salt caverns. This disposal process is inefficient and is an economic burden on the company. The ...
  • Eberle, Whitney; Reeve, Scott (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    The Hay River Pool has been developed with water-flooding through horizontal wells, but the reservoir appears suitable for near-miscible CO2-hydrocarbon injection. Our objective is to find the optimal CO2-hydrocarbon ...
  • Stoeck, Alyssa; Johnson, Julien (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    The Bakken play has been of great interest to oil companies in recent years. It produces high quality oil from a reservoir with low porosity and low permeability, but has a rapid decline rate immediately after production ...
  • Petersen, Melissa; Isbister, Jordan (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    Different development plans to effectively exploit Reservoir MJ have been evaluated and optimized. First, a history match was completed to accurately predict future reservoir fluid behavior. Then different well patterns ...
  • Affleck, Tyson; Ruether, Bryan (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    Miscible flooding is an effective tertiary Enhanced Oil Recovery technique after primary and secondary recovery methods have been exhausted. Minimum Miscibility Pressure (MMP) is the pressure at which miscibility is achieved ...
  • Hassan, Nasir; Wild, Evan (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNRL) owns and operates a heavy crude oil treating facility near Elk Point, AB. This facility currently uses four horizontal heater treaters to effectively reduce the basic sediment and ...
  • Jamshidi, Tayebeh; Movahedzadeh, Zeinab (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    VAPEX reduces the viscosity of heavy oil by injecting it with a light hydrocarbon solvent. The resulting diffusion and mass transfer are strongly dependent on the injection rate, solvent concentration, cementation factor, ...

    VAPEX reduces the viscosity of heavy oil by injecting it with a light hydrocarbon solvent. The resulting diffusion and mass transfer are strongly dependent on the injection rate, solvent concentration, cementation factor, ...
  • Weisshaar, Lee; Duan, Jinhong (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    This project correlates Formation Resistivity Factor for the Bakken formation with porosity and permeability. A pickett plot was created, and the correlation coefficients a and m were determined. Lithology was determined ...
  • Murphy, Taylor; Steen, Matt (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    New technologies such as horizontal drilling and various fracturing techniques have led to economic production from the Bakken, which was previously considered marginally economic. These techniques have been evaluated, ...
  • Barua, Rajib; Afrad, Min-am (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    The main objective of this project is to simulate a shale gas reservoir numerically in order to find those areas within the accumulation that will produce gas commercially, and then to evaluate and compare the predicted ...
  • Francis, Erica (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    Underbalanced Drilling (UBD) has many benefits, including the mitigation of skin damage during the drilling process. How this reduction, or prevention, of skin damage actually benefits a reservoir and the overall recovery ...
  • Kingston, Brent; Elder, Lee (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
    This project presents a Firefox extension that uses a model of the users’ browsing history to predict where they are likely to browse based on their current web page. Users can choose to exclude web sites from their results ...
