    • Formation Skin Damage: Can Underbalanced Drilling Damage Less and Recover More? 

      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 ...
    • Gas Emissions from Small Aircraft 

      Storozuk, Robert (Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, University of Regina, 2011-04-02)
