Hot subterranean biosphere in a continental oil reservoir
THE presence of high concentrations of hyperthermophilic archaea in Alaskan oil fields has been attributed to viable hyperthermophiles in low concentrations in the injected sea water, but theExpand

A systematic survey for thermophilic fermentative bacteria and archaea in high temperature petroleum reservoirs
Abstract Production waters from 36 high temperature petroleum reservoirs were examined for the presence of thermophilic, fermentative microorganisms. The direct supplementation of production watersExpand

Thermotoga subterranea sp. nov., a new thermophilic bacterium isolated from a continental oil reservoir
Abstract A thermophilic, strictly anaerobic bacterium, designated strain SL1, was isolated from a deep, continental oil reservoir in the East Paris Basin (France). This organism grew between 50 andExpand

Laboratory Evaluation of Kinetic Hydrate Inhibitors: A Procedure for Enhancing the Repeatability of Test Results
Evaluation of kinetic hydrate inhibitors (KHIs) in laboratory high-pressure cells generally yields scattered results. In this work we propose a procedure that consists of characterizing theExpand

Chord length distributions measurements during crystallization and agglomeration of gas hydrate in a water-in-oil emulsion: Simulation and experimentation
The formation of gas hydrates from water-in-oil emulsion was investigated on two different flow loops: a laboratory scale flow loop (Archimede flow loop: 30 m long, and 1 cm diameter, St-EtienneExpand

Rheological Characterization of Hydrate Suspensions in Oil Dominated Systems
Abstract: In the work described in this paper, the rheological behavior of hydrate suspensions in an asphaltic crude oil was studied. A P‐T cell adapted to operate as a double cylinder configurationExpand

Heavy Oil Dilution
Heavy Oil Dilution — Heavy crude oils cannot be transported by pipeline without a prior reduction of their viscosity. This is commonly obtained by blending the oil with light hydrocarbons. In thatExpand

QUALIFICATION OF LOW DOSE HYDRATE INHIBITORS (LDHIS): FIELD CASES STUDIES DEMONSTRATE THE GOOD REPRODUCIBILITY OF THE RESULTS OBTAINED FROM FLOW LOOPS
Replacement of the traditional thermodynamic hydrate inhibitors (methanol and glycols) in multiphase applications is highly desirable for Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) considerations and forExpand
