Machine Learning Algorithm

Basically, the main focus of machine learning is to allow the computers learn automatically without human intervention. Now the question arises that how such learning can be started and done? It can be started with the observations of data. The data can be some examples, instruction or some direct experiences too. Then on the basis […]

Reid Vapor Pressure and True Vapor Pressure

Gasoline and other fuels have the ability to vaporize, or change from liquid to vapor, when exposed to heat or air at temperatures above the boiling point of the fuel. The rate of vaporization is often referred to as volatility, and one test to measure this is the Reid vapor pressure test. This test measures […]

By Rusty Braziel RBN Energy LLC rbraziel@rbnenergy.com Last week we introduced a blog series from contributor Ann Davis Vaughan on condensates – the hydrocarbon mixture that is now being produced from tight oil shale plays in increasing quantities. That production surge is causing refiners and traders to scratch their heads figuring out the best uses […]

The quickly expanding practice of using railcars to transport bitumen from Alberta’s oilsands to refineries in eastern Canada and the United States presents the opportunity to significantly reduce diluent requirements. However, under current circumstances it may not be enough to move the dial on the industry’s overall diluent demand. Pipeline dilbit is generally about 70 […]

Reserves are like fish

Proved Developed The fish is in your boat. You have weighed it, you can smell it and you will eat it. Proved Undeveloped The fish is on your hook in the water by your boat and you are ready to net it. You can tell how big it looks (they always look bigger in the […]

Relation between surface tension and viscosity?

Surface tension is the amount of attraction the surface of an object has. Surface tension is easily demonstrated by observing a pool of water. Put your finger in the water and slowly… i mean “slowly”… pull your finger away and you will see the water is actually attracted to your finger and the water will […]

Quality Assurance Tests for Reservoir Modeling & Simulation

The objective of these tests is to improve the reliability of forecasts derived from reservoir modeling and simulation studies by: Applying systematic review methods for the early identification of potentially unreliable forecasts. Improving awareness of how to build forecast reliability into reservoir and simulation models. Models Honor Well Control Test Group: Well Data Consistency: Maps […]
