    Preface This technical report aims to present the possible causes and the solutions for the problems in the unloading circuit of the hydraulic system as well as recommendation for the maintenance strategy the system. The problem are oil reservoir is too hot and the curing pressure in the system insufficient. This report consists of two main topics. Firstly, the technical topic, which has covered the possible causes and some recommendations to solve problems in the system. Secondly, the maintenance strategy, in this part of the report there will be two types of maintenance strategies, which are preventative and predictive maintenance strategies. Each type is related to specific piece of equipment required in this hydraulic system.…

    In a rural town where population is not large where natural gas is found beneath. The perfect location for the process of fracking. Fracking or Hydraulic fracturing is the process of drilling down into the earth and releasing a high pressure water mix to obtain natural gas. Fracking began as an experiment in 1947 and started commercially in 1950 and since over two million “fracking jobs” have been done since. The process of fracking is very controversial around the world and has even been…

    2015 To Frack or Not to Frack Hydraulic fracturing is a process began being used in Kansas in 1947 and, through the years, has become a regular practice used to stimulate natural gas and oil flow to an area and increase its production. It has presented many opportunities and challenges over the years. And it has brought many social and ethical concerns to light. There are different methods used in hydraulic fracturing and involves quite a bit of water. Recently is has become a hot topic…

    The BBC stated in the article What is fracking and why is it controversial? that “Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a technique designed to recover gas and oil from shale rock. Fracking is the process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the rock to release the gas inside.” To be more specific, oil companies drill into the earth to extract gas from rocks using a high pressure water mixture. The water mixture includes gallons of water, sand, and…

    Although hydraulic fracturing has been in use for oil and natural gas drilling since the early 1900’s, its detrimental effects have only recently been brought to the public’s attention. Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is the use of a pressurized, chemically treated mixture of water and sand to release and extract quantities of natural gas and petroleum from shale rock. This mining process and its toxins are harmful to thousands of people across the nation. Hydraulic fracturing is a…

    As of lately, a process called hydraulic fracturing (fracking) has been all over news channels across America and other countries. Hydraulic Fracturing is defined as a process by which fractures in the rocks below the Earth's surface are opened and widened by injecting sand and/or chemicals at high pressure to extract natural gas or oil ("What is Fracking?"). Fracking is used to extract shale gas, tight sand gas, tight sand oil, and coal seam gas (better known as methane). Hydraulic fracturing…

    Hydraulic fracturing is the method which used to extract shale gas, fracturing the rocks with water pressure to release the gas or oil. Hydraulic fracturing caused many environmental problems which are worth pondering. Many countries such as France and Bulgaria were already successively promulgate law to against using hydraulic fracturing. But Germany, Britain and maintain a positive attitude. I am the one who support hydraulic fracturing because the following reasons. Reduce the contamination…

    Hydraulic Fracturing for oil and natural gas is possibly one of the most misunderstood parts of drilling around. The term itself is almost as bad for some as racial slanders. Countries have banned the process and even some states such as Colorado have placed embargos on the process until more research is available. Environmental groups storm capitals at the sound of the word demanding more regulations. What many don’t realize is that the oil business has been using the same process for 70 years…

    Hydraulic fracturing, also known simply as fracking, is a process used to extract natural gas and oil from beneath the earth’s surface. This process is accomplished by drilling a well and pumping pressurized water, proppants such as sand, and chemicals into that well; the result of this process is that fractures occur within the targeted layer of shale rock, which allow for extraction of the desired gas and oil (Hyder and Lerner 2250). As a cleaner burning fuel, natural gas continues to be an…

    Occupying substantial areas of land, the massive reservoirs, or barays, of Angkor have much debated purposes. One such debate paints the Khmer capital as a hydraulic city, in which the barays, along with other waterworks, were a part of an extensive, meticulously planned, and utilitarian water management network built primarily for the purpose of irrigation. Acker points to four roots of the hydraulic debate and the argument for rice agriculture in Angkor (1998:12-13). The first root is inspired…
