  • Hydraulic Fracturing

    Hydrocarbon production from unconventional reservoirs has transformed the oil and gas industry in North America. The unconventional reservoirs common attribute is that the permeability of the matrix is ultra-low where the permeability often has been improved by natural fractures or induced hydraulic fractures. Hydraulic fracturing creates highly conductive pathways for hydrocarbons from the reservoir into the wellbore. At high pressure, fracturing fluid which includes of proppant, water, and…

  • Carbon Capture

    Carbon capture and storage 1.Introduction Carbon capture and storage is a technology that industrial carbon is taken from the ground to be stored permanently and safely, and away from the mobile carbon pool.[1] This is a very attractive technology due to reducing the harmful gases produced by burning fossil fuels, which may be reduce global warming. This essay will discuss methods of capture and storage, impacts of environment and economic. 2.carbon capture There are 3 main methods to carbon…

  • Carbon Chain Hypothesis

    It was hypothesised that the longer the carbon chain of an alcohol the more energy output would be released and a longer flame length will be produced due to the extra carbon-carbon and carbon-hydrogen bonds. As the wick length increases so does the flame length and therefore more energy output will be produced. The data collected throughout the course of the three experiments partially supports the hypotheses. However, the results gathered when testing how the length of the carbon chain affects…

  • Nuclear Energy: Nuclear Power For The Future

    atmosphere. This causes harm to the environment, and is a major factor in global warming. Nuclear energy can solve this issue. Regular coal emits 955 grams of carbon dioxide per kilowatt-hour, compared to nuclear energy, which only emits 4 grams per kilowatt-hour (By The Numbers). With nuclear power plants producing over one hundred times less carbon dioxide than coal plants, nuclear energy is a much cleaner and safer option for the environment.…

  • Coal-Fired Energy Benefits

    production methods, they can be cheap yet inefficient or expensive and more efficient. However, fossil fuels are used because they are efficient and easy to acquire, but they affect the environment. Coal-Fired electricity production has been around since the Industrial Revolution, this means that coal-fired electricity that still makes up 61% of the electricity produced in Australia (Department of Industry and Science, 2015). Therefore, it makes complete sense that Australia should progress into…

All other forms of generating power pale in comparison to the energy density of enriched uranium. “For example, one kilogram of coal can power a light bulb for 4 days, one kilogram of methane for 6 days and one kilogram of uranium for a remarkable 140 years” (McInnes, Colin). Fossil fuels and renewable energy sources do not contain enough energy to fuel the entire world…
