Traditional safeguards approaches involve setting up a material balance across material balance areas (MBAs).
The purpose of creating the program was the need for a unified algorithm that would take into account all the necessary benchmark data, perform material balance calculations and find optimal ways in short-term and long-term planning.
According to the scheme the material balance of calcium compounds can be represented by marking C as the total concentration of calcium compounds in the solution, as follows:
In the "material balance" section and associated subsections we explain the terms that comprise the equation and provide tools and examples on how to estimate these terms to within a reasonable degree of engineering certainty.
The results showed that although the Flowing Material Balance method is unable to evaluate the reservoir parameters it is more powerful in estimation of oil in place rather than the Blasingame method.
realisations, which would lead to more material balance sheet
Founded in 2000, SiteLark develops solutions to extract information from available data to enrich reservoir simulation models, builds predictive models for unconventional gas and performs a variety of engineering studies related to fluid characterization, material balance, decline curves and pressure transient analysis.
So Johnston [17] provided the material balance deconvolution that is a practical approach for the analysis of pressure transient data distorted by wellbore storage effects.
However, to get a bigger picture the DNR can use other methods, such as a "material balance analysis," which the DNR used in addition to decline curve analysis; the agency estimates that there could be as much as 32 percent more gas in the existing fields than is assumed by the utilities in their study.
The Director General of the IAEA has to report the detailed information on weapon grade nuclear material, including high enriched weapons and plutonium, their locations and contiguous accountancy of material balance. In this context Iran propose to all like minded non-nuclear weapon states party to NPT to pursue this in the IAEA.
A set of material balance equations allowed the estimation of the SDS fraction in the micelles.
