The development of effective exploitation strategies requires scientifically sound characterization of geothermal reservoirs. Surface geophysical data are potentially the most powerful and cost effective means of exploration and characterization, providing images of the subsurface structures prior to extensive drilling.
NER is actively performing experiments designed to better understand the deformation and velocities of deep water Gulf of Mexico sands during simulated reservoir depletions. In preparation for these studies, we have performed a number of exploratory experiments using Berea Sandstone as an analog sandstone.
Gregory N. Boitnott's application for a patent entitled "Method for Estimating Pore Structure of Porous Materials and its Application to Determining Physical Properties of the Materials" was allowed by the U.S. Patent and Trademark office last week.
NER announces AutoLab v5.0 software for its AutoLab series. The new software enables our customers to perform routine experiments such as hydrostatic compression, confined compression pure shear, and uniaxial strain tests using easily customizable modules.
Randolph Martin recently attended a meeting of the Central Asian Seismic Risk Initiative (CASRI) in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan to discuss the tectonics, seismicity and seismic hazards of the Tien Shan region of Central Asia.
CauSIN, a DOE sponsored project with NER's Randolph Martin as a principal investigator, wrapped up this month after three years of work building a unified knowledge base of the seismicity and tectonics of the Caucasus region of southwest Asia.
