  1. Processing Challenges with Tight Oil

    Webinar

    This presentation provides insight into processing challenges with tight oil. Opportunity crudes from shale are more readily available in North America with incentives on cost. However, these typically lighter tight oil crudes don’t come without some processing challenges. Some of the challenges...

  2. A Comparison of US Shale Plays with Emerging Non-Marine Shale Plays in Australia

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2014)

    The geological and petrophysical parameters are critical in evaluating the production potential of prospective shale gas plays and their economic viability for commercial development. However, based on the US experience, these characteristics can vary widely. Furthermore, the non-marine shale plays...

  3. Evaluation of the EOR Potential in Shale Oil Reservoirs By CO2 Miscible Displacement Applied in Modified Zipper Fractured Horizontal Wells

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2014)

    Unconventional shale oil/gas reservoirs exist over large quantities in the United States. The success of horizontal wells drilling and multistage hydraulic fracturing technique make it economically viable to produce shale gas reservoirs. However, the natural depletion recovery of shale gas or oil...

  4. Process Modeling of Shale Oil Extraction in Rotary Reactor Using Aspen Simulation

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2014)

  5. Impact of Recycling Light Olefins to the FCC

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2014)

    Recycling light olefin product streams back to a fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit has potential applications in US refineries due to the growing level of Shale Oils in the crude slate as well as in maximum propylene units such as many built in Asia. In refineries that process high levels of...

  6. Comparative Study of Enhanced Oil Recovery Efficiency By CO2 Injection and CO2 Huff-n-Puff in Stimulated Shale Oil Reservoirs

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2014)

    Multi-stage fracturing applied in horizontal wells is considered as the most effective method for producing shale gas/oil reservoirs. However, the primary oil recovery from natural depletion is only few percent. The low recovery rates and the abundance of shale resource plays provide huge potential...

  7. Shale Gas Boom and Tight Oil- A Look at Current Projects in the Refining Sector

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (Southwest Process Technology Conference, 2014)

    Production of Tight Oil from the Shale Gas Plays in the U.S. is having a profound effect on the Refining Industry. Refiners are maximizing the amount of advantaged oil they can feed their crude units some with geographic locations that allow them to capitalize the most on the sometimes attractive...

  8. Cracker Feedstock Changes: From Naphtha to Ethane Cracker

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (Southwest Process Technology Conference, 2014)

    Driven by the US shale gas boom, cracking ethane to ethylene became more attractive than cracking liquid feedstocks in the last years. Therefore owners of liquid crackers envisage to minimize liquid feedstocks or even to fully replace by ethane. The present paper briefly describes process unit by...

  9. Treating Hydraulic Fracturing Flowback Waters

    Webinar

    This presentation reviews membrane separation processes that could be used to treat hydraulic fracturing flowback waters. The advantages and limitations of these processes are highlighted. Data from commercial treatment facilities is also presented.
