Modelling and analysis of systems on offshore oil and gas platforms
This research examines oil and gas systems from the seemingly underutilized perspective of energy; this is counterintuitive since the energy content of hydrocarbon products is its most distinguishing characteristic and the very reason why it is valued by society. It is clear that the amount of energy required to extract crude oil is increasing over time, at the long-term global level, and at the much shorter time span of individual fields. The global trend is a well-documented phenomenon and is related to the depletion of the most energetically favorable reservoirs and a coincidental growing ...
