This melt film can't be dragged or scraped away because there's only a gas pocket
"These gas pockets
usually do not pose a risk to the drilling operation itself.
The technology, developed with Zotefoams PLC of Britain, injects tiny gas pockets
into bottle walls, reducing the weight and amount of plastic used, without sacrificing robustness.
It is only within the last few years that improved geological identification of potential gas pockets
, horizontal drilling and pressure fracturing have created such a huge supply of North American gas that the price differential between natural gas and fuel oil enabled the cost-effective transportation of significant quantities of CNG by truck over long distances.
British Gas pocketed
PS20million in a year from in-credit customers who have moved to another firm, and whom the twyBh company has been unable to trace for a refund, a whistleblower revealed yesterday.
Owing to their small size, gas pockets
which form from migrating hydrocarbons may be uneconomical to extract.
One scroll is orbited around the fixed scroll, trapping and compressing gas pockets
as the pockets move to the center of the fixed scroll.
The technology provides a view of the reservoir's formations, oil and gas pockets
, faults and other characteristics in a timely manner.
One way to combat it was to deliberately destroy gas accumulations in a dangerous operation conducted by a "monk", actually a miner shrouded in a wet blanket who poked a candle on a long pole into gas pockets
"All these techniques allow you to manage the way fluids flow round the fields and they are able to target ever more distant and smaller oil and gas pockets
," says Burchell.
Polyurethane insulation is a closed-cell foam with trapped low conductivity gas pockets
; these gas pockets
give the foam its high R-value by reducing heat transfer.
"And, before you ask," she added, tugging the bed sheets over her, "that other sound isn't gas pockets
in the pipework.
