LONDON, March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ViaLogy PLC (VIY) announces it has completed a key demonstration project of its QuantumRD technology under contract with Chevron U.S.A. Inc. Working closely with Chevron geophysicists, ViaLogy successfully applied QuantumRD to a 3D seismic data set for the purpose of delineating the porosity trends in the tight dolomites of the lower Permian Basin. Variations in carbonates with low porosity have extremely small expression in the...

Researchers studying how fluids travel through nanoscale channels were surprised to discover that the fluids don't flow equally well in all directions. Contrary to the behavior in the macroscale world, the researchers discovered that methyl alcohol, when it was placed in a network of nanoscale channels in a mineral known as a zeolite, diffused 1,000 times faster in one direction than another. This is the first known evidence of such highly unequal diffusion of molecules in a nanoporous...

The extended Coulomb failure stress (ECFS) criteria and anisotropic porosity and permeability tensor at micro/meso/macro scale under ultra"℠high temperature and pressure (UTP) conditions were developed employing the flow driven pore"℠network crack (FDPNC) model under multiple temporal"“spatial scales and the hybrid hypersingular integral equation"℠lattice Boltzmann method (HHIE"℠LBM). The correlation of the Zipingpu reservoir and Longmenshan slip was then...

Findings could aid in the development of better technologies for hydraulic fracturing and other fluid extraction techniques from the earth When geologists survey an area of land for the potential that gas or petroleum deposits could exist there, they must take into account the composition of rocks that lie below the surface. Take, for instance, sandstone"”a sedimentary rock composed mostly of weakly cemented quartz grains. Previous research had suggested that compaction...

Chemists from UCLA and South Korea report the "ultimate porosity of a nano-material," achieving world records for both porosity and carbon dioxide storage capacity in an important class of materials known as MOFs, or metal"“organic frameworks. MOFs, sometimes described as crystal sponges, have pores "” openings on the nanoscale which can store gases that are usually difficult to store and transport. Porosity is crucial for compacting large amounts of gases into small volumes and...

Researchers from North Carolina State University have found that applying a small electric field results in faster formation of ceramic products during manufacture at lower temperatures, and enhances the strength of the ceramic itself. At issue is a process called sintering, which is how most ceramic products are made. The process involves taking fine ceramic powder, compressing it into the desired shape of the final product, and heating it. Under high heat, the atoms of the powder material...
