Sustainable Shale Oil and Gas

Analytical Chemistry, Geochemistry, and Biochemistry Methods

Shale oil and gas have altered the energy landscape, possibly permanently. They burst upon the fossil energy scene with a suddenness that initially defied prediction. Even the political balance of the world has changed. But, with the methods employed, the vast majority of the oil and gas remains in the ground. At the same time, serious environmental impact issues have been raised. A new volume in the Emerging Issues in Analytical Chemistry series, Sustainable Shale Oil and Gas Production: Analytical, Biochemical, and Geochemical Methods was written on the premise that analytical methods to inform these areas were wanting. While not attempting to be comprehensive, it describes important analytical methods, some still in development. These methods are underpinned primarily by chemistry, but geochemistry and even biochemistry play significant roles. The book has a solutions flavor; problems are posed together with approaches to ameliorate them. Provides a clear understanding of the potential environmental issues as well as a path to solutions Includes background information for understanding potential impacts of shale operations from both an environmental and public health perspective Authored by leaders from diverse disciplines with expertise in a variety of areas: groundwater quality, petroleum-related operations, microbial ecology, and electronic technologies Reviews new sensing and evaluation methods that could be key enablers to sustainable fracking: portable mass spectrometry, microbiome analysis, DNA as tracers, and a microparticulate matter detector

The advancement of methods and technologies in the oil and gas industries calls for new insight into the corrosion problems these industries face daily. With the application of more precise instruments and laboratory techniques as well as the development of new scientific paradigms, corrosion professionals are also witnessing a new era in the way data are gathered and interpreted. Corrosion and Materials in the Oil and Gas Industries draws on state-of-the-art corrosion and materials technology as well as integrity management to offer guidance on dealing with aging and life extension in the oil and gas industries. Get Expert Insights on Corrosion Identification, Prevention, and Mitigation The book features contributions by engineers, scientists, and business managers from around the world, including major oil- and gas-producing and -exporting countries. Organized into four parts, the book first provides introductory and background information. The second part explains the properties of construction materials and the underlying mechanisms of degradation, including a chapter on microbiologically influenced corrosion. The third part of the book delves into inspection and maintenance issues, examining material selection, corrosion prevention strategies, and the role of design. It also supplies models to help you estimate corrosion damage and select mitigation and monitoring techniques. The fourth part tackles corrosion hazards, safety and risk, and reliability. It also links corrosion mitigation and the management of asset integrity, highlighting the need for companies to maintain their infrastructure to remain competitive. Interpret Field Findings More Confidently and Discover Solutions to Your Corrosion Problems Throughout, this richly illustrated book combines theory with practical strategies and examples from industry. As infrastructure ages and is pushed beyond its original design life to meet increasing energy demands, it is essential that those responsible for managing the infrastructure have a thorough understanding of material degradation and corrosion. This book is an invaluable reference for anyone involved in corrosion management and materials selection, particularly in the oil and gas industries, whether upstream, midstream, or downstream.

Effective measurement of the composition and properties of petroleum is essential for its exploration, production, and refining; however, new technologies and methodologies are not adequately documented in much of the current literature. Analytical Methods in Petroleum Upstream Applications explores advances in the analytical methods and instrumentation that allow more accurate determination of the components, classes of compounds, properties, and features of petroleum and its fractions. Recognized experts explore a host of topics, including: A petroleum molecular composition continuity model as a context for other analytical measurements A modern modular sampling system for use in the lab or the process area to collect and control samples for subsequent analysis The importance of oil-in-water measurements and monitoring The chemical and physical properties of heavy oils, their fractions, and products from their upgrading Analytical measurements using gas chromatography and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) applications Asphaltene and heavy ends analysis Chemometrics and modeling approaches for understanding petroleum composition and properties to improve upstream, midstream, and downstream operations Due to the renaissance of gas and oil production in North America, interest has grown in analytical methods for a wide range of applications. The understanding provided in this text is designed to help chemists, geologists, and chemical and petroleum engineers make more accurate estimates of the crude value to specific refinery configurations, providing insight into optimum development and extraction schemes.

Die ökonomischen Institutionen des Kapitalismus

English summary: It is Oliver E. Williamson's theory that people behave rationally to a limited extent only and tend to act in their own interests. He shows how post-contractual problems can arise within the framework of relationship-specific dealings, which are subject to a great deal of environmental uncertainty and require specific investments. In order to cope with these problems, capitalist economic systems provide numerous institutions and coordination mechanisms whose efficiency is examined.Williamson studies economic transactions from an economic, legal and organizational perspective. He differentiates between the individual frequency. In doing so, he assigns the most efficient, i.e. the most cost-effective form of coordination to each type of transaction. The structuring, the monitoring of corporations and issues in antitrust law) as well as highly significant empirical evidence attest to its practical importance. German description: Oliver E. Williamson geht von der Annahme aus, dass Menschen sich nur in begrenztem Masse rational verhalten und dazu neigen, im Eigeninteresse zu handeln. Er zeigt, wie es im Rahmen von Leistungsbeziehungen, die einer hohen Umweltunsicherheit unterliegen und spezifische Investitionen erfordern, zu nachvertraglichen Problemen kommt. Kapitalistische Wirtschaftssysteme stellen fur die Bewaltigung dieser Probleme zahlreiche Institutionen bzw. Koordinationsmechanismen zur Verfugung, die auf ihre Effizienz untersucht werden.Wirtschaftliche Leistungsbeziehungen (Transaktionen) werden aus okonomischer, rechtlicher und organisatorischer Sicht untersucht. Die einzelnen Transaktionen werden nach den Kriterien Spezifitat, Unsicherheit, Komplexitat und Haufigkeit unterschieden. Jedem Transaktionstyp wird dabei die effizienteste, d.h. kostengunstigste Koordinationsform zugeordnet. Den hohen praktischen Stellenwert dieser Vorgehensweise beweisen die zahlreichen Anwendungsmoglichkeiten (Vertikale Integration, Unternehmensstrukturierung, Kontrolle in Aktiengesellschaften und kartellrechtliche Fragestellungen) sowie hochsignifikante empirische Befunde.Die deutsche Ubersetzung der erfolgreichen amerikanischen Originalausgabe wendet sich sowohl an Wissenschaftler als auch an Praktiker, die an einer Integration von okonomischen, rechtlichen und organisatorischen Fragestellungen interessiert sind.
