Petroleum

View this topic in
Petroleum or crude oil is a naturally occurring, flammable liquid consisting of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons of various molecular weights and other liquid organic compounds, that are found in geologic formations beneath the Earth's surface. Petroleum is recovered mostly through oil drilling. This latter stage comes after the studies of structural geology (at the reservoir scale), sedimentary basin analysis, reservoir characterization (mainly in terms of porosity and permeable structures).

  • Time series based interactive recommendation for petroleum drilling safety check

    Recommender systems represent user preferences for the purpose of suggesting items to select or examine. In petroleum drilling safety check, there are many items (e.g. tool misused and warning signs ignored) to be checked during one day. However, existing recommender systems seldom apply time series and interaction methods for the issue. In this paper, we propose a recommender system with two techniques for petroleum drilling safety check. The basic recommender system obtains checking sequence based on statistic average. One of technique is time series prediction. It adopts simple moving average to predict the occurrence of all items in the initial stage. The other technique is user-recommender interaction. It is used to adjust the subsequent checking sequence after interacting with users. Experiments on a real-world petroleum drilling data set show that (1) both techniques help recommender system perform better; and (2) the recommender system with two techniques presents a significant increase than the others.

  • Prediction of soleplate corrosion in petroleum storage tank based on Grey Model GM(1,1)

    The corrosion protection of petroleum storage tank is important for safety work in petroleum depot. Precise prediction of soleplate corrosion may reflect the security state of a storage tank, and it can provide scientific references to the anti-corrosion and maintenance in safety management. Grey Model GM(1,1) in the Grey Theory, which is programmed by MATLAB, is introduced and applied to predict the soleplate corrosion of No. G-2 petroleum storage tank in Luquan oil depot. Compared with the measurements, the prediction results meet them very well, which shows that this model is practical, fast, and convenient. Meanwhile, it can reflect the status and the corrosion rate of a petroleum tank. Therefore, it is suitable for wide applications in other relative fields.

  • The dynamics of petroleum pricing and the impact of petroleum product prices on key sectors of the economy

    The study reviews the dynamics of regulations towards petroleum products and the impact of changes in prices of petroleum products on the key indicators of Indian economy. The deregulation of petroleum sector with reduction in subsidies and linking domestic prices to that of international crude oil prices has led to heavy reduction in the under recoveries of Oil Marketing companies. Cointegration analysis carried with oil prices and the GDPs of key sectors of Indian economy, Index of industrial production (IIP) and with inflation indicators like consumer Price index (CPI) shows that not much of an impact of oil price is felt on production indicators of India like GDP and IIP but Oil price is cointegrated with inflation indicator CPI. While the petroleum products, especially petrol and diesel will continue to be taxed heavily, the taxing mechanism would not only act as a buffer to absorb the fluctuations in international crude prices but would also be a tool for demand management and environmental protection. With the reduction in under recoveries of OMCs and oil subsidies, the government can now divert these resources to subsidize and promote the renewable sources of energy.

  • Influence of Petroleum Price Fluctuation to Main Petroleum-Consumed Industries in USA

    USA is a country seriously relied on petroleum energy. Several historical petroleum crises had caused huge negative influence, more or less, to USA economy, these urged USA government to establish a comprehensive petroleum crisis coping mechanism International petroleum price fluctuated dramatically, especially, international petroleum price fluctuation range in whole year of 2008 exceeded those of three petroleum crisis of last century. By studying influence of all previous petroleum crises to USA petroleum-consumed industries, this paper comes to following conclusion: Increasing of petroleum price all-round reduced production added value of road transportation, chemical industry and aviation industry in USA, brought adverse effect to these industries. USA highway transportation industry has a relative weak capability to cope with petroleum price increasing, and recently, affected seriously by petroleum price increasing. International petroleum price rise had caused each industry's expense to petroleum increasing constantly, and resulted in added value reduction. Affect by international petroleum price increasing to main petroleum-consumed industries is under weakened.

  • Storage & transportation scheduling algorithm of petroleum products based on supply chain

    The association and restriction are among the process of storage, transportation, demand and distribution of petroleum products. Without reasonable solution, shortage of product storage and imperfect vehicle arrangement would happen, and the cost of transportation, distribution and management would increase dramatically. Consider these factors, the scheduling model of the storage and transportation network that is from refinery to depot to gas station is developed to instead of the model only between depot and gas station. A method combined heuristic and directed diagram is proposed to solve this model and is proved to be valid.

  • The Development and Application of Petroleum Engineering Network Course Learning System

    Knowledge of petroleum engineering specialty is applied throughout the entire process of oilfield production, the petroleum engineering course is very important in petroleum engineering specialty. In the context that the professionals who engage in the oil production are currently asked to enhance the learning of the special knowledge of petroleum engineering, it is necessary for petroleum colleges to develop a network course which makes the non-petroleum professional students and people engaged in the oil production learn by themselves. E-learning is a digital learning method on the condition of network. The range of its application is extending gradually. E-learning method is introduced and the "petroleum engineering" online course is set up based on the WebCT course platform in campus network. Students can learn all aspects of special knowledge of the Petroleum Engineering curriculum systematically and completely through the network by themselves and good learning effect is achieved.

  • Root cause reasoning based on fuzzy fault Petri net for petroleum engineering systems

    In petroleum industry, engineering systems are becoming increasingly large- scale, high speed, automatic and intelligent. They are closely linked with the exploitation and transportation processes of oil and gas, making up an open complex system. Its failure often causes a chain reaction, which will further lead to serious or even catastrophic accidents with significant economic losses. Fault coupling and cascading are the “the real ultimate causes” of system breakdown, due to the complexity of its structure and behavior, as well as the high correlation and strong interaction among subsystems, system and environment. A new approach for root cause reasoning based on fault fuzzy Petri net is proposed considering the characteristics of cascading faults. The probability of each fault mode can be calculated and the fault propagation paths are ratiocinated. In this way, the proactive maintenance strategy or emergency plan can be made in advance to prevent accident. The effectiveness and accuracy of the proposed method is validated in the application of gearbox of the flue gas turbine used in refining system. The results reported in this paper could be useful for the petroleum engineering system designers and safety management personal.
