Detailed sedimentological and geochemical records across the Permian–Triassic boundary (PTB) in five offshore wells of the central Persian Gulf served to interpret the end-Permian sea-level change in this region. A decrease in sea level at the PTB was established by petrographical and geochemical study of the boundary. Thin sections showed that Upper Permian strata are composed of dolomite with minor anhydrite, changing into limestone in Lower Triassic sediments. Brine dilution toward the boundary supports sea-level fall in the Permian–Triassic transition, reflected by a decrease in anhydrite content and a shallowing-upward trend from lagoonal to peritidal facies. Isotopic changes at the boundary are in favor of sea-level fall. Changes in both carbon (from about 4 to –1‰) and oxygen (from 2 to –5‰) stable isotopes show negative excursions. The shift in carbon isotope values is a global phenomenon and is interpreted as resulting from carbonate sediment interaction with 12C-rich waters at the end-Permian sea-level fall. However, the oxygen isotope shift is attributed to the effect of meteoric waters with negative oxygen isotope values. The increase in strontium isotope ratios is also consistent with the high rate of terrestrial input at the boundary. The effect of meteoric conditions during diagenesis is evident from vuggy and moldic porosities below the PTB. The following transgression at the base of the Triassic is evident from the presence of reworked fossils and intraclasts resulting from deposition from agitated water. © 2017 Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany

Stability of both voltage and frequency in power systems is the basis of the electricity generation. Load shedding is one the last strategies to stabilize a power system. However, the conventional load shedding schemes do not consider the reactive power as a direct participation in load shedding, which is essential for the voltage stability. To fill this gap, we propose a new combinational under frequency load shedding (UFLS) and under voltage load shedding (UVLS), considering reactive and active power simultaneously, and using non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm (NSGA II) in this paper. The location of bus loads, the reactive power and the active power consumption at each bus are used as GA control variables. This method is tested on the modified IEEE 39-bus system. The results of simulations validate the proficiency of proposed method in stabilizing the frequency and voltage of the power system.

The present-day state of stress in the Persian Gulf is poorly understood but has significant impacts on well drilling and performance. The upper Permian to lower Triassic formation of Kangan/Dalan, Persian Gulf, exhibits a complex structural context in the neighborhood of the Oman Mountains and the Zagros orogenies. This formation is divided into four reservoir layers (K1 to K4) where three main lithologies (limestone, dolomite and anhydrite) are alternating. We conduct an analysis of the present-day stress and natural fractures at the wellbore using full-bore FMI logs, leak off test and density logs. For this purpose, borehole breakout and tensile fracture data are used to determine orientation of SH. Furthermore, density log, leak-off test and Kirsch equation for tensile fracture formation in the wellbores are used to calculate the magnitude of Sv, Sh and SH, respectively. Vertical stress (Sv) gradient at 3100m depth approximates 20MPa/km (2.9psi/m), indicating a bulk density of 2.04g/cm3. A total of 131 drilling induced tensile fractures and 21 breakouts with an overall length of 262m are observed in two wells, indicating a mean maximum horizontal stress (SH) orientation of N53° (±18.45°) for drilling-induced tensile fracture (DITF) data and N50° (±10.79°) for breakout data. The mean orientation of SH rotates counterclockwise with depth from K2 (N70°±4.2°) to K4 (N40°±5.1°) reservoirs. Noticed correlation between these data and stress orientations from earthquake focal mechanism solution, first of all, indicates that the stresses are linked to the resistance forces generated by the Arabia-Eurasia collision at the Zagros orogeny and secondly confirms the reliability of focal mechanism solution data near continental collision zones. In the Kangan/Dalan Formation, the NW-SE main open fracture direction is found as a common regional direction which is sub-perpendicular to the present-day maximum horizontal stress. Minimum horizontal stress (Sh) gradient in reservoir sections is estimated to be equal to 17MPa/km (2.5psi/m). The concluded strike-slip stress regime (SH>Sv>Sh) in the study area is consistent with the compressive regime in the Zagros thrust-fold belt. The present-day stress in the Kangan/Dalan Formation has implications for wellbore stability, lost circulation and well Inflow Performance Relationship (IPR). Wells are more unstable if deviated toward the Sv direction, whereas well productivity and mud loss increase in wells deviated toward SH, which conveys the idea of a strike-slip faulting effect tends to keep the natural fractures open in that direction. copy; 2013 Elsevier B.V.

Fluid Phase Equilibria | Year: 2013

Due to problems followed by asphaltene deposition, which cause many remedial processes and costs, it seemed necessary to develop equations for determining asphaltene precipitation quantitatively or qualitatively. In this study a new scaling equation as a function of temperature, molecular weight, and dilution ratio (solvent) has been developed. This equation can be used to determine the weight percent of precipitated asphaltene in the presence of different precipitants (solvents). The proposed methodology utilizes least square support vector machines/regression (LSSVM/LSSVR) to perform nonlinear modeling. This paper proposes a new feature selection mechanism based on coupled simulated annealing (CSA) optimization in an attempt to tune the optimal parameters. CSA-LSSVM has the good capability of characterizing the nonlinear behavior. The performance of the proposed LSSVM algorithm is highly satisfactory and demonstrated by residuals and statistical indicator and was compared with previous works. The results showed its superiority to previous and highly dependent performance. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

Through this work, a novel mathematical-based approach was proposed to develop reliable models for calculation of PVT properties of crude oils at various reservoir conditions. For this purpose, a new soft computing approach namely Least Square Support Vector Machine (LSSVM) modeling optimized with Coupled Simulated Annealing (CSA) optimization technique was implemented. The constructed models are evaluated by carrying out extensive experimental data reported in open literature. Results obtained by the proposed models were compared with the corresponding experimental values. Moreover, in-depth comparative studies have been carried out between these models and all other predictive models. The results indicate that the proposed models are more robust, reliable and efficient than existing techniques for prediction of PVT properties. Results from present research show that implementation of CSA-LSSVM in crude oil PVT calculations can lead to more accurate and reliable estimation of reservoir oil PVT properties. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

The measurement of PVT properties of natural gas in gas pipelines, gas storage systems, and gas reservoirs require accurate values of compressibility factor. Although equation of state and empirical correlations were utilized to estimate compressibility factor, but the demands for novel, more reliable, and easy-to-use models encouraged the researchers to introduce modern tools such as artificial intelligent systems.This paper introduces Particle swarm optimization (PSO) and Genetic algorithm (GA) as population-based stochastic search algorithms to optimize the weights and biases of networks, and to prevent trapping in local minima. Hence, in this paper, GA and PSO were used to minimize the neural network error function.A database containing 6378 data was employed to develop the models. The proposed models were compared to conventional correlations so that the model predictions indicated a good accuracy for the results in training and testing stages. The results showed that artificial neural networks (ANNs) remarkably overcame the inadequacies of the empirical models where PSO-ANN improved the performance significantly. Additionally, the regression analysis released the efficiency coefficient (R2) of 0.999 which can be considered very promising. © 2013 .

Deactivation of a RuO2-IrO2-TiO2/Ti electrode was investigated during an accelerated life test in H2SO4 and NaCl solutions using cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, and SEM/energy dispersive spectroscopy. It is found that the deactivation mechanism depends on electrolyte composition. Intensive Ru/Ir dissolution from the oxide coating and the growth of an insulating TiO2 interlayer are the main deactivation mechanisms of anode in H2SO4 and NaCl solutions, respectively. The results indicate that the determining factor in deactivation mechanism is the morphology factor of oxide anode in different solutions which restrains the diffusion process of electrolyte into coating inner layers. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.

An integrated and quantitative approach is taken here to the Permo-Triassic Kangan/Dalan carbonate formation. We apply pore-network characterization to the problem of the classification of these complex carbonate gas-reservoir rocks. We start with the useful and convenient nuclear-magnetic-resonance (NMR) data on 28 samples to define NMR facies (NMRF). The NMRF group ing is performed with both the relaxivity constant (p2) and the specific-surface-volume SGV data. Seven NMRF have been defined with a combination of core/log NMR data, petrographic image analysis, and mercury-injection examinations for two wells. The advantage of evaluation of the pore spaces rather than grain properties is to discover trends that are not apparent when one uses a conventional sedimentological facies definition. Lithology-independent NMRF exhibit properties that are associated with pore geometry. This should have special importance for the formation evaluation of carbonates.

Soave-Redlich-Kwong (SRK) cubic equations of state (CEoS), Peng-Robinson (PR) and four modifications of these equations with Soave type alpha functions at supercritical temperatures are investigated. For pure compounds two different typical behaviors of Soave type alpha function at supercritical temperature are introduced. Then criteria for occurring of these two kinds of behavior for each one of compounds are established. It is exhibited that CEoSs with Soave type alpha function after temperatures that alpha function has minimum are reasonably precise. Furthermore theoretical reason for accuracy of these equations after the abnormal behaviors of alpha functions is presented. Derivatives of soave type alpha functions are calculated and their behaviors at supercritical temperatures are explained. Finally, accuracy of CEoSs with Soave alpha function in prediction of compressibility factor, fugacity coefficient, enthalpy and constant volume heat capacity of 25 pure compounds at supercritical region are studied. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

The author discusses the hydrocarbon potential of Pabdeh formation in Ziluee oilfield, in southwest Iran. The research was focused on characterization of this formation based on Rock-Eval (RE) pyrolysis, which is an effective instrument for analyzing probable source rock. Various diagrams were employed for interpreting the raw outputs of RE. The results revealed that kerogen type II and III are mainly distributed in understudied cuttings; therefore, Pabdeh can produce oil and gas in Ziluee oilfield, while its genetic potential is fair to good and maturation level is high enough. Based on RE data and lithological studies, Pabdeh was divided into three important zones, A, B, and C. Zone B is the most effective zone for producing oil, whereas zones A and C mainly produced gas in the proposed oilfield. Jones diagram showed that different intervals of this formation were not deposited in a singular environment. Some intervals belonged to a reducing lacustrine marine and some of them deposited in terrigenous oxidizing condition. Finally, the effect of mineral matrix and amounts of inert carbon in the samples was calculated. The small value of mineral matrix effect indicates that small amount of hydrocarbon was absorbed by minerals during pyrolysis. In addition, amount of inert carbon is negligible in studied samples of Pabdeh formation. Copyright © 2014 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
