      Most of the world’s oil reservoirs now produce a mixture of oil and water. The liquids are subjected to shear forces through pumps or other lifting methods, or are sheared as they pass through pressure-reducing devices in the production [..More]

Reservoir Simulation Data Management Eng.Ali Yahya Jirjees Salman Introduction Data from a wide variety of sources are required for reservoir simulation. Simulation itself produces large quantities of data. Yet, good data management practices for reservoir simulation data are typically neither [..More]


Removing H2S from Oil
