Treadwell Gold: An Alaska Saga of Riches and Ruin

A century in the past, Treadwell, Alaska, was once a featured cease on steamship cruises, a wealthy, updated city that was once the main popular and proud in all Alaska. Its wealth, in spite of the fact that, used to be based at the remarkably effective gold mines on Douglas Island, and whilst these caved in and flooded within the early a long time of the 20 th century, Treadwell sank into relative obscurity.

Enhanced Oil Recovery: Field Planning and Development Strategies

Enhanced-Oil restoration (EOR) reviews curious about asset acquisition or rejuvenation contain a mix of complicated judgements, utilizing assorted facts resources. EOR initiatives were characteristically linked to excessive CAPEX and OPEX, in addition to excessive monetary possibility, which are likely to restrict the variety of EOR tasks introduced.

Data X Strategien: Data Warehouse, Data Mining und operationale Systeme für die Praxis

Auf der Grundlage aktueller Entwicklungen der Wirtschaftsinformatik stellen die Autoren Konzepte dar, die als Richtlinie für die künftige Entwicklung von einem die operationalen Systeme, info Warehouse-, Informations-, Experten- und facts Mining Systeme umfassenden Anwendungssystem dienen können.

However, the systems featured a number of serious drawbacks related to the additional time required for a wireline operation, additional capital, and operational costs.

22 Two drilling rigs were operated on the cluster by one drilling crew consisting of five shifts. The good drilling results from the Ust-Balyk field prompted wide use of the cluster directional well drilling method in other fields of Western Siberia. , 68%. At an average penetration rate of 34 m/hr and a penetration per bit of 117 m, the average overall drilling speed was 3278 m/rig-month, which was practically identical with the corresponding results from vertical wells. qxd 4/28/03 10:39 AM Page 25 DEVELOPMENT OF DIRECTIONAL, CLUSTER, AND HORIZONTAL DRILLING TECHNOLOGY USING DOWNHOLE MOTORS Vast experience in drilling cluster directional wells in the Urals and Volga oil provinces as well as Western Siberia allowed the formulation of the following main advantages of this inland field drilling method: 1.
