• Fast Evaluation of Caprock Strength Sensitivity to Different CO2 Solutions Using Small Sample Techniques 

      Edvardsen, Laura; Bhuiyan, Mohammad Hossain; Cerasi, Pierre; Bjørge, Ruben (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The Draupne shale is a rock formation functioning as overburden for gas reservoirs in the Norwegian Sea and potentially as caprock for future CO2 storage locations as well. In this paper, the Draupne shale was exposed to ...
    • From Static to Dynamic Stiffness of Shales: Frequency and Stress Dependence 

      Lozovyi, Serhii; Bauer, Andreas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The relation between static and dynamic stiffness in shales is important for many engineering applications. Dynamic stiffness, calculated from wave velocities, is often related to static stiffness through simple empirical ...
    • Influence of Weight-on-Bit on Percussive Drilling Performance 

      Song, Xianfeng; Aamo, Ole Morten; Kane, Pascal-Alexandre; Detournay, Emmanuel (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      A phenomenological model for percussive drilling systems is proposed in this paper to explain the experimentally demonstrated existence of an optimal weight-on-bit (WOB), for which the rate of penetration (ROP) is maximized. ...
