Workover off of Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In a 2-month workover campaign off the coast of Gabon, West Africa, Elf Gabon serviced 41 wells off 14 platforms, using coiled tubing to convey workover fluids pumped from a dynamically positioned ship. Use of the dynamically positioned vessel, in place of a barge that requires towing to the wellsite and anchorage in place by mooring lines, helped reduce workover cost per well by 37%. Most of the savings resulted from fewer days required for each well because the service ship travelled on its own power and pumped various workover fluids from its decks. A supply ship shuttled replacement materials from shore to platform during the campaign. A production increase of 6,177 b/d resulted from the workover, with a payout time of 80 days.

Gabon: World Oil Report 1991  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper reports on Gabon's largest oil field, Rabi Kounga, and a flurry of smaller reservoirs which have boosted production to 300,000 bopd. Regional geology is so complex that it generates a large discovery only once every twenty years, and operators come and go due to low discovery ratios, following market ups and downs. A hard core four remain: Elf first, Shell, British Gas, which bought Tenneco, and Amoco. Shell's Rabi Kounga discovery, which stretches from shore to shelf, boosted exploration and renewed interest for onshore licenses. The low discovery rate, however, reflects the complexity of Gabonese basins.

Rabi-Kounga field, Southern Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Rabi-Kounga field recently discovered by Shell onshore Gabon is located at 2/sup 0/S lat. in an area of central Africa covered by dense, uninhabited, primary rain forest, 140 km south of Port Gentil, the country's economic capital. The field lies mostly within the Sette Cama Block where Shell Gabon is operator on behalf of an association in which the partners are Shell, Gabon, Elf Gabon, and SNEA. As presently defined, the Rabi-Kounga field is 12 km long and 3-4 km wide, extending northward into the Dianongo Block operated by Elf Gabon for the same association. With an expectation of 1,300 million bbl(STOIP), it appears to be the largest oil accumulation discovered in Gabon. The hydrocarbons of the Rabi-Kounga accumulation are contained within the reservoir sands of the Gamba and Dentale Formations, which form part of a rift basin of Early Cretaceous age, the Dianongo basin. The cap rocks are late Aptian evaporitic deposits (Ezanga Formation). The salt deposits and their thin underlying clastics (Gamba Formation), which unconformably overlie the continental Dentale sequence, bear evidence of the first marine influence and reflect the phase of continental separation between Africa and South America. Post-salt sediments are fully marine, corresponding to a phase of sedimentary progradation. They are represented by carbonates and clastics that were deposited on a subsiding continental margin.

Public relations practice in private sector companies in Gabon  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This article examines the practice of public relations in private sector companies in Gabon. Face-to-face, semi-structured interviews were conducted with the public relations practitioners employed in 15 companies chosen from the register of the companies at the Trade Ministry of Gabon. The interviews explored themes such as position of communication departments and communication practitioners in an organisation use of research, communication practitioners’ relationship with top management, gender and education of practitioners, effect of globalisation on communication practice in Gabon as well as the description of typical activities of communication practitioners. The study revealed the public relations is a developing profession in Gabon and that public relations practice in the surveyed companies displays attributes common to PR in other countries as well as some distinctive qualities shaped by the context of Gabonese history, society and culture.

Floating oil production unit slated in small field off Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper reports on the first U.S. tanker converted to a floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) unit which takes up station in Gombe-Beta field off Gabon by Dec. 1. FPSO Ocean Producer will work under a 3 year, day rate contract let late in 1990 by Amoco-Gabon Bombe Marin co., a unit of Amoco Production Co. (OGJ, Dec. 24, 1990, p. 27). Gombe-Beta field is in the Atlantic Ocean about 70 miles south of Port Gentil, Gabon. Ocean Producer will be moored in 50 ft of water 3.7 miles off Gabon, with Bombe-Beta's unmanned production platform about 820 ft astern. The vessel will be held in position by a disconnectable, asymmetric, six point, spread mooring system, It is owned and operated by Oceaneering International Services Ltd. (OISL). Affiliate Oceaneering Production Systems (OPS) converted the 78,061 dwt oil tanker MT Baltimore Sea at a capital cost of $25 million at Gulf Copper Manufacturing Corp.'s Port Arthur, Tex., shipyard. Both companies are units of Oceaneering International Inc., Houston. OPS the Ocean Producer's use in Gombe-Beta field is the shallowest water FPSO application in the world. Amoco-Gabon chose an FPSO production system for Gombe-Beta because it expects the remote field to have a short economic life, and the oil requires extensive processing.

French oil companies in Africa  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Petroleum interest in Africa is fairly recent: the first exploration in 1947, Hassi Messaoud (Algeria) in 1957, and more serious interest on the part of French companies in the early 1960s. Two major French companies active in Africa are Elf Aquitaine and CIE Francaise des Petroles (CFP). Elf Aquitaine intends to maintain its effort in Gabon with 9 exploratory wells in 1980 and investments of 50 billion francs, and intends to lessen the production decline in the Congo, particularly after the discovery of the Emeraude offshore field. The difficulties here are the shallow depth forcing high angle directional drilling, high viscosity oil, and a very complex reservoir. Investments in the Congo include 45 billion francs including a terminal and an electric plant. CFP is active mainly in Tunisia, Sudan, and Egypt. In Tunisia, 6 fields are of interest, with investments in the order of 110 million francs. More recently, the effort in Egypt has seen further exploration and production from a well, with the investment of 80 million francs in 1980, probably doubling in 1981.

Widespread 3D seismic survey covers mature field in Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The exploration potential of the Port Gentil region, characterized by some of the earliest petroleum discoveries in Gabon, continues to be of important interest today. Available seismic data are of an older vintage (1974--82), recorded with low common mid-point (CMP) fold. They are critically void of coverage through the transition zone. The geology is highly complex, characterized by salt structures and strong tectonic activity. An intensive joint exploration and reservoir definition campaign is crucial to full evaluation of this area. This article describes the 3D survey conducted during 1992 and early 1993 over a mature oil field in an around Port Gentil and incorporating elements of land, transition zone, and shallow marine data acquisition -- the 3D Mandji program.

Geology and Petrophysics of the Ozouri Group, Central Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Ozouri Group in Gabon is comprised of finely textured siliceous dolomitic and calcareous claystones, shales, limestones, dolomites, porcellanite and cherts. It was deposited during the Late Paleocene and Early Eocene on a transgressive continental margin. It is highly siliceous and organically rich, with affinities to the Miocene Monterey Formation of California. It is often fractured by deeper structural movement of the underlying Ezanga salt. Economic oil production from the Ozouri is dependent on the most effective combination of matrix (storage) and fracture (deliverability) porosity. The most efficient combination can be related to variations in the lithologic and petrophysical characteristics of the formation. Horizontal drilling techniques can be utilized to fully exploit production from the Ozouri Group.

In vitro antiplasmodial activity and cytotoxicity of nine plants traditionally used in Gabon  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Aim of the study As part of a project to identify new compounds active on malarial parasites, we tested the in vitro antiplasmodial activity of nine plants traditionally used to treat malaria symptoms in Haut-Ogooué Province, South-East Gabon. Materials and methods Dichloromethane and methanolic extracts of each plant were tested for their antiplasmodial activity on two chloroquine-resistant strains of Plasmodium falciparum (FCB and W2), based on lactate dehydrogenase activity. Cytotoxicity was assessed with the MTT test on MRC-5 human diploid embryonic lung cells. Results The methanolic extract of Staudtia gabonensis and the dichloromethane extract of Adhatoda latibracteata showed high antiplasmodial activity (IC50 Gabon had interesting antiplasmodial activity in vitro. This supports continued investigations of traditional medicines in the search for new antimalarial agents. The compounds responsible for the observed antiplasmodial effects are under investigation.

Salt deformation history and postsalt structural trends, offshore southern Gabon, West Africa  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Salt deformation in offshore southern Gabon is represented by mobilization of an Aptian salt layer in reaction to Tertiary clastic progradation. Seismic mapping of salt bodies and associated faulting has resulted in increased understanding of the types and distribution of these salt bodies, their associated faulting patterns, and some aspects of their origin. Away from the Tertiary depocenter, the growth history of salt swells or pillows can be determined by examining onlapping and draping seismic reflectors. Significant Tertiary clastic progradation into the area mobilized the salt and resulted in a series of linear, deep salt walls and asymmetric, basinward-dipping salt rollers, commonly associated with significant up-to-basin faulting dominates the southern Gabon subbasin. The expansion history of associated sediments suggests that these faults expanded episodically throughout the Tertiary, continuing to present-day bathymetric fault scarps. The bias toward up-to-basin faults, to the apparent exclusion of down-to-basin expansion faults, remains enigmatic.

Structure of the Gabon Margin from integrated seismic reflection and gravity data  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the South Gabon Basin, deep multi-channel seismic reflection and gravity modeling analysis have shed light on key features of the structure of the margin. The thinned continental crust beneath the Gabon Margin appears to be composed of two distinct layers, separated by a clear, strong and more or less continuous reflector running in the 7–10 s TWT window. The lower crust is characterized by a higher density, intermediate between the lower values of the upper crust and the denser values of the mantle. The lower crust is irregularly shaped and presents lateral thickness variations along the direction of thinning and along the coast. In the offshore thinned continental domain, the lower and upper crust form a 20–25 km thick body. Crustal thicknesses point to a relatively sharp and narrow transition, along a few tens of kilometers, between the unthinned and the thinned continental crust. The high density layer identified offshore Gabon presents similar characteristics in density, geometry and spatial distribution, as the underplated magmatic bodies observed along volcanic margins, e.g. along the South Atlantic Namibia Margin or the North Atlantic Vøring Margin. Although this lower crustal body could possibly represent ultra mafic serpentinized rocks or high grade metamorphic crustal rocks, we suggest that it could be composed of mafic rocks. Magmas resulting from partial melting during rifting may underplate the crust and/or be intruded in the lower crust through a system of dykes and sills. In this view, the present-day crustal thicknesses along rifted margins, characterized by magmatic underplating and/or intrusion, are not representative of the thinning that the crust experienced during rifting. Results of this study point to relatively shallow sedimentary basins along the South Gabon Margin. The deepest offshore depocenters located under the westernmost side of the continental platform appear to be associated with the deepest syn-rift basins These basins seem to extend along 20 to 40 km in the ~ NE–SW direction with a present-day average thickness of 7.3 km. Offshore Gabon, whereas the crustal thinning appears significant, the syn-rift deposit are not thick. We suggest that the area was anomalously uplifted during the rifting phase, due to an elevated thermal lithospheric gradient. The conclusions derived from our seismic and gravity analysis are consistent with the implications such a thermal anomaly would have on the tectonic evolution of a rifted margin with 1) an underplated high density lower crustal layer, 2) shallow depth syn-rift basins associated with a relatively thin crust and subsequently 3) elevated recorded subsidence rates in the initial post-rift stages.

Illite in the Oklo natural fission reactors in Gabon: Considerations for Cs containment  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The {approximately} 2 Ga old Oklo, Okelobondo and Bangombe natural reactors in the Republic of Gabon contain solid graphitic bitumens and clay minerals, both of which have effected the containment, or partial containment, of {sup 235}U and several fission products. In laboratory experiments, sorption of {sup 134}Cs by illite, and illite coated with petroleum was measured in aqueous NaCl solutions to simulate subsurface (connate) waters in sedimentary rocks. Elevated temperatures and increasing salinity of the NaCl solutions facilitated the removal of sorbed cesium from illite.

Serological survey of canine leptospirosis in three countries of tropical Africa: Sudan, Gabon and Ivory Coast  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A cross-sectional survey was conducted to estimate the presence of leptospiral antibodies among 475 dogs from three countries of tropical Africa: Sudan (n = 62), Gabon (n = 255) and Ivory Coast (n = 158). Sixteen reference strains belonging to seven serogroups were used as antigen in the microscopic agglutination test. Overall, considering titers ?1:40, 453 samples were positive towards one or several serovars of pathogenic leptospires. Focusing on high titers, i.e. ?1:320, the seroprevalence was 40.8%. In Gabon, the seroprevalence was higher in rural areas than in an urban environment (p < 0.001). In Ivory Coast, the seroprevalence for serogroups Icterohaemorrhagiae and Canicola was not statistically different according to the vaccinal status. Predominant serogroups varied according to the countries but Grippotyphosa and Sejroë were the most common, while Icterohaemorragiae and Canicola were dominant in Sudan. In these three countries, dogs are heavily exposed to pathogenic Leptospira and humans living in the same environment are also at risk of infection.

Morbidity and mortality of wild animals in relation to outbreaks of Ebola haemorrhagic fever in Gabon, 1994–2003  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Summary Antibody to Ebola virus was found in 14 (1.2%) of 1147 human sera collected in Gabon in 1981–1997. Six seropositive subjects were bled in the northeast in 1991, more than 3 years prior to recognition of the first known outbreak of Ebola haemorrhagic fever (EHF), whilst eight came from the southwest where the disease has not been recognised. It has been reported elsewhere that 98 carcasses of wild animals were found in systematic studies in northeastern Gabon and adjoining northwestern Republic of the Congo (RoC) during five EHF epidemics in August 2001 to June 2003, with Ebola virus infection being confirmed in 14 carcasses. During the present opportunistic observations, reports were investigated of a further 397 carcasses, mainly gorillas, chimpanzees, mandrills and bush pigs, found by rural residents in 35 incidents in Gabon and RoC during 1994–2003. Sixteen incidents had temporal and/or spatial coincidence with confirmed EHF outbreaks, and the remaining 19 appeared to represent extension of disease from such sites. There appeared to be sustained Ebola virus activity in the northeast in 1994–1999, with sequential spread from 1996 onwards, first westwards, then southerly, and then northeastwards, reaching the Gabon–RoC border in 2001. This implies that there was transmission of infection between wild mammals, but the species involved are highly susceptible and unlikely to be natural hosts of the virus.

An integrated approach to evaluating the spatial distribution of the Melania Formation in southern Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Seismic is of limited use in determining the presence of the Melania Formation, which is an important source rock within the presalt section of southern Gabon, because of the problems inherent to seismic imaging beneath salt. Thus, exploration efforts were concentrated on structural modeling based on gravity and magnetic data to resolve the geometry of the presalt section. An integrated interpretation of a 94-km dip profile across the Cretaceous-Holocene passive margin sequence is presented. This interpretation used a layered model of the sedimentary section down to the last reliable horizon, derived from the seismic and well data, as constrained by the gravity modeling in order to determine the approximate depth to basement. This model was then integrated, through a series of sequential steps, into a single interpretation, which satisfied all the geological and geophysical constraints needed to explain the spatial distribution of the Melania Formation.

Thermally insulated pipelines successfully move high-wax-content crude offshore Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Three thermally insulated pipelines have been installed at a water depth of 35 m (115 ft) in Shell Gabon's Lucina Marine field. The three lines consist of two 2-km (1.24-mile) long flowlines connecting drilling and production platforms and a 3.2 km (2 mile) long loading line connecting a production platform to a storage tanker permanently moored in the field. All three pipelines are of 10.75-in. OD with rigid polyurethane-foam insulation contained in a high-density polyethylene sleeve. The pipelines have been designed with an operating temperature of 90/degree/C. (194/degree/F.). Thermal insulation was chosen because of the Lucina crude's high wax cloud point of 55/degree/C. (131/degree/F.). Without insulation, cooling of the crude in subsea pipelines would have lead to rapid wax deposition. Details of the coating and insulation of the line and riser pipe are given. For the line pipe, a thermal-insulation system consisting of polyurethane foam (PUF) within a polyethylene (PE) sleeve pipe was chosen.

Frac and pack stimulation: Application and field experience from Hylia Gabon, West Africa  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper describes a two-step frac/gravel pack completion procedure conducted from a jack-up rig offshore Gabon in 1993 and 1994. After an in-depth, sand production study, seven wells were completed using hydraulic fracturing and cased-hole gravel packs. Because the Anguille formation spreads over a large gross interval, production screens of 50 to 100 m in length were used. Single-stage internal gravel packs (IGPs) on such large intervals were considered impossible to achieve with reasonable skin values. The frac-pack technique was an attractive way to achieve good proppant placement, considering that the formation being fractured would have a more homogeneous conductivity across the whole zone and a uniform proppant placement would be achieved in the perforations as well as in the annulus. High-efficiency frac gel using cross-linked HPG and a low damage one using HEC were compared to determine the best fluid to be used for these completions. Bottom hole pressures during treatment operations, as well as post-treatment pressure build-ups from each well, were analyzed in order to make general recommendations on this hydraulic fracture design.

Regulation of business activities of petroleum contractors in Cameroon, Congo, Gabon, and Ivory Coast  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Foreign companies engaging in business in Cameroon, Congo, Gabon, and Ivory Coast are subject to a broad range of regulations. This article deals only with those aspects of the regulations that are most important to petroleum contractors intending to engage in business in these countries. The regulator scheme actually applicable in a given case will depend on the legal structure through which a corporation operates. An American corporation may envisage engaging in business on a long-term basis through a local subsidiary or branch. On the other hand, it may wish only to perform temporary activities pursuant to one or more fixed-duration contracts with petroleum companies operating in one of countries. Each of these situations is dealt with. Common features of each area of regulation were described and the differences in regulations were presented. These topics were included: exchange control regulation, corporate forms of business association, authorization to engage in business, requirement of government or local participation in capital, investment code incentives, labor law requirements, taxation of corporations, taxation of profits, taxation of income from movable capital, taxation of amounts paid abroad as technical assistance fees, royalties and similar compensation, turnover taxes, payroll taxes, taxation of business performed without forming a local company or branch, taxation of employees and Social Security contributions.

How to rejuvenate interest in exploring an old production area in Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Mandji peninsula area is the oldest explored petroleum province in Gabon. The Clairette, Lopez North and South, N'Tchengue fields were discovered in the 50's in Senonian and Tertiary turbidites structured by salt domes. A total of 120 wells have led to a production of 12,5 MT (91 MMbls) oil. However, some gaps in the understanding of reservoir distribution and fluids regime appeared as production went on and could not be resolved with the available seismic data which was old (1974 to 1982) and irregular. A new 3D seismic survey was shot in 1992 (245 km2) over an area fringed with shallow water and mangrove forests, covered with savannah liable to flooding, and including several populated areas. The acquisition set-up was adjusted to every type of environment: Airgun in shallow water, explosive in uninhabited areas, and Vibroseis (TM) through the city of Port-Gentil. A carefully designed processing sequence led to consistently good quality throughout the survey, allowing a complete and detailed review of the area. In addition to building a coherent reference model, multi-disciplinary studies have already unveiled new opportunities : complex structural and stratigraphic components in the old fields together with unexpected structural closures and stratigraphic leads are revealed by the 3D interpretation. They will constitute new targets for further exploring an area at late production stage, and may help build a model for the exploration of the turbidites in the Senonian basin.

Mechanisms of lead release from uraninite in the natural fission reactors in Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Twenty-four samples of uranium ore from the natural fission reactors in Gabon were studied by detailed electron microprobe analysis and backscattered electron imaging in order to determine the behavior of radiogenic Pb and fissiongenic nuclides. Lead content in uraninite varies from 19 wt% PbO in relicts of pristine uraninite, which were found only in reactor zone 10, to less than 5 wt% in altered uraninites. Different mechanisms of Pb loss from uraninite prevailed in different reactor zones and included leaching, grain boundary diffusion, exsolution via continuous precipitation, and volume diffusion. As a result of these processes, Pb content in uraninites from all the reactor zones, except for reactor zone 10, are similar and vary around a mean value of 5.2 wt% PbO. All of these processes were thermally activated and episodic. The predominance of any single mechanism in a particular reactor zone was controlled by the accessibility of solutions to the uranium ore. The thermal event which caused Pb mobilization in the deposits resulted from regional igneous activity in the Franceville Basin more than 1100 Ma after the reactors sustained spontaneous fission reactions. Reducing conditions prevented the long distance migration of Pb, as well as of fissiongenic Mo and Ru.

Screening of antioxidant activities of polysaccharides extracts from endemic plants in Gabon  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The usage of plants as food, cosmetics or medicinal products is common throughout the world, particularly in the traditional medicines of Africa, Asia, and South America. Despite this long-standing use, many properties of plant constituents, including their capacity to inactivate reactive oxygen species, remain unknown today. In this context, polysaccharides were isolated from barks, leaves or stems of endemic plants of Gabon by sequential extractions of crude cell walls with oxalate and KOH. Analysis of fractions indicated that pectic extracts are mainly composed of HG and RG-I in various proportions whereas hemicellulose fractions are composed of both XXXG-type xyloglucans and (1,4)-xylans substituted by 4-O-Me GlcUA residues. Antioxidant activities of these plant extracts were evaluated by monitoring their free radical scavenging activity of 2-2-diphenyl, 1-picrylhydrazyl, iron reducing capacity and metal chelating activity. Pectin from four extracts presented antioxidant activity in the DPPH assay compared to ascorbic acid (AA). These extracts also exhibited high ferric iron reducing powers compared to AA but low ferrous ion-chelating properties compared to EDTA. These activities were concentration-dependent. In contrast, commercially available pectins, xyloglucan and arabinoxylan were found to be inactive in both assays. The free scavenging activity of these molecules disappeared after enzymatic digestion and saponification, whereas the iron reducing power partially remains after these two treatments. The fact that all pectins and hemicelluloses from the three plants reacted differently suggests that specific structural motifs are involved for generation of antioxidant activity

Transport of terrestrial organic matter in the Ogooué deep sea turbidite system (Gabon)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In order to define the nature and distribution of the organic matter (OM) preserved in the modern Ogooué deep sea turbidite system (Gabon), bulk geochemical techniques (Rock-Eval pyrolysis, elemental and isotopic analyses) and palynofacies were applied to three piston cores collected in the Cape Lopez Canyon and lobe and on the continental slope, north of the canyon. The hemipelagic sedimentation in the study area is characterized by high accumulations of well-preserved OM (?2–3 wt. TOC %). Bulk geochemical and palynofacies analysis indicate both a marine and terrestrial origin of the OM. Contribution of the marine source is higher on the slope than in the canyon and lobe. OM accumulation in turbidites is strongly controlled by the combined influence of the Cape Lopez Canyon and littoral drift. In the canyon and lobe, turbidites show generally low TOC content (0.5 wt. %) and OM is oxidized. The origin of the OM is interpreted as both marine and terrestrial, with a higher contribution of continental source versus marine source. The low TOC contents are due to the large siliciclastic fraction transported by the littoral drift and diverted in the Cape Lopez Canyon during high energy processes (e.g. storms) which tend to dilute the OM in the turbidites. Transport by long-shore currents and/or turbiditic flows leads to oxidation of the OM. On the continental slope located north of the Cape Lopez Canyon, large amounts of OM are deposited in turbidites (up to 14 wt. %). The OM is predominantly derived from terrestrial land plants and has not been subjected to intense oxidation. These deposits are characterized by high hydrocarbon potential (up to 27 kg HC/t rock), indicating a good potential as gas-prone source rock. Because Cape Lopez Canyon captures a significant part of the sediment transported by the littoral drift, the siliciclastic sedimentary flux is reduced north of the canyon; OM is thus concentrated in the turbidites. Variation in TOC content within turbidite laminae can be explained by the burst and sweep deposition process affecting the boundary layer of the turbulent flow. This study confirms that gravity flows play a preponderant role in the accumulation and preservation of OM in deep water and that deep sea turbidite systems could be regarded as an environment where organic sedimentation occurs.

Description of Anopheles gabonensis, a new species potentially involved in rodent malaria transmission in Gabon, Central Africa  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The genus Anopheles includes mosquito vectors of human malaria and arboviruses. In sub-Saharan Africa, the anopheline fauna is rich of nearly 150 species, few of which are anthropophilic and capable of transmitting pathogens to humans. Some of the remaining species are found in forests far from human environments and are vectors of wildlife pathogens. The diversity and the biology of these species have yet to be fully described. As a contribution to furthering knowledge of sylvan Anophelinae, using morphological and molecular tools we describe a new Anopheles species collected in Gabon (Central Africa), which we have named Anopheles gabonensis n. sp. We also molecularly screened this species to detect infections by Plasmodium parasites. The results showed the species to have been infected by Plasmodium vinckei, a rodent parasite. We discuss the role of An. gabonensis n. sp. in the transmission of P. vinckei in the rainforest areas of Central Africa and its potential to transfer pathogens to humans.

Geochemistry of organic-rich black shales overlying the natural nuclear fission reactors of Oklo, Republic of Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The organic-rich black shales of the Franceville Series` FB Formation overlying the uranium ores, and natural nuclear fission reactors of Oklo, Gabon, are not notably metalliferous. Chromium, gold, silver, and barium are slightly enriched in average Oklo black shale (AOK) relative to black shale standard SDO-1. Geochemical variations among the black shale samples of the sedimentary sequence include enrichment in potassium, barium, chromium, and silver in the four lowermost samples, the presence of a bleached zone depleted in organic carbon lowermost in the sequence, and elevated rare earth element (REE) content in samples closest to the Oklo reactor zones. Hydrothermal activity has influenced the geochemistry of the black shale but is evidently not linked to reactor-driven processes. Chondrite-normalized REE patterns of Oklo black shale samples show slight enrichment in light REE and slight depletion in heavy REE, especially in the sample closest to the reactor zone. However, comparison of REE content with various petrographic facies in and near the Oklo reactors shows no apparent enrichment in fission product (intermediate) REE. With few exceptions, reactor facies all contain more REE than AOK. The chondrite-normalized REE pattern of AOK resembles that of greywacke-shale turbidites of Archean greenstone belts. The paucity of uranium and manganese in AOK is a curious anomaly in an area of world class uranium and manganese deposits.

From detrital heritage to diagenetic transformations, the message of clay minerals contained within shales of the Palaeoproterozoic Francevillian basin (Gabon)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Unmetamorphosed and undeformed marine siliciclastics rocks of the FB, FC and FD of the Francevillian series (Gabon) were deposited in an epicontinental basin. Clay minerals found in black shale, siltstone and sandstone are dominantly illite and chlorite except in two levels of the FB formation, which contain smectite-rich randomly ordered mixed layers. Their survival in a 2.1 Ga old sedimentary series is not related to the abundance of organic matter (total organic carbon or TOC), nor redox conditions at the time of deposition as indicated by the Fe speciation (FeHR/FeT and FePy/FeHR ratios). Rather it results from an incomplete illitization reaction that reflects potassium deficiency. The K2O/Al2O3 ratio of shale, siltstone and sandstone vary along the series, and appear to conserve the signature of the original chemical composition of the rocks. K-feldspars which are present in the FC and FD formations are missing in the FB formation. Consequently, the smectite layers do not appear to be inherited from a detrital input in the basin but must be considered as representative of an intermediate stage of the illitization reaction reached during diagenesis.

Introduction of postabortion contraception, prioritizing long-acting reversible contraceptives, in the principal maternity hospital of Gabon  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A prospective, descriptive, analytic study was conducted at the Centre Hospitalier de Libreville in Gabon between February and September 2013 to evaluate acceptance of long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC) and depot-medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) following abortion. Women received counseling on the combined oral pill, DMPA, copper intrauterine devices (IUDs), and implants. The association between sociodemographic and clinical characteristics, knowledge of contraceptives, and acceptance was analyzed. Of the 383 women admitted with abortion complications, 206 (53.7%) knew of no systemic contraceptives. The best-known method was the oral pill (42.0%). Only 14 women (3.6%) knew of a LARC method (IUD or implants) and only 2 (0.5%) said the injectable was their best-known method. Over 90% accepted a modern contraceptive method after abortion. Two-thirds (66.8%) chose the pill, 14.6% DMPA, and 9.3% a LARC method. Only 9.1% of the women refused to initiate use of any method.

Nd-isotope evidence for the distal provenance of the historical (c. <3000 BP) lateritic surface cover underlying the Equatorial forest in Gabon (Western Africa)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Surficial formations in Gabon, as well as in other places of western Central Africa include a ubiquitous, homogeneous and 1–3 m-thick clayey to sandy lateritic surface cover known as the ‘Cover Horizon’. From 14C radiometric dating it has been concluded that the emplacement of this unit was correlative with a major environmental crisis which affected Central Africa c. 3000–2000 years ago. 10Be and Nd-isotopic analyses have been performed to provide new constraints on the age and origin of this layer. Six samples from two depth profiles investigated for 10Be exhibit an almost constant concentration consistent with a very recent deposition age. Nd-isotopic analyses performed on the silt to clay fraction of eleven samples from widely spaced locations over Gabon attest for mildly radiogenic signatures (?Nd = ?23 to ?17) in ten of them, and a slightly radiogenic signature (?Nd = ?9) in one sample. TDM model ages range from 1.6 to 2.6 Ga, and a perfect discrimination is observed between the Nd-isotopic signature of the Cover Horizon and that of the underlying Congo Craton. This makes an aeolian origin as the most probable for the Cover Horizon. The average ?Nd (c. ?20) is however rather unusual for aeolian sediments or aerosols. A possible source of particles is therefore tested by considering the present-day atmospheric flux over Gabon and adjacent regions. Combined atmospheric modeling and Nd-isotopes leads to the conclusion that the fine fraction of the Cover Horizon could have originated from the northern part of the Namib desert.

Fission product retention in newly discovered organic-rich natural fission reactors at Oklo and Bangombe, Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The discovery of naturally occurring fission reactors in the rock strata of the Paleoproterozoic Francevillian Basin in the Republic of Gabon in equatorial West Africa led to several programs to define migration and/or retention of uranium and fissiogenic isotopes from/in the natural reactor zones. Although much understanding has been gained, new insight is needed regarding the chemical and physical parameters that control movement and retention of fission products over almost two billion years from/in the natural reactors. Seventeen known natural fission reactors sustained criticality for 0.1 to 1 million years in hydrothermally altered sedimentary rocks 1968 +/- 50 million years ago. These natural nuclear reactors attained criticality because of high concentrations of uranium in small pockets in uranium ores, the lack of neutron poisons, and because at the time they reached criticality, the abundance of [sup 235]U was five times greater than it is today. Water acted as a moderator, and temperature in the natural reactors was between 160 and 360[degrees]C. Both the uranium-rich pockets and the uranium ore bodies in which these pockets are located were formed when aqueous solutions moving through highly fractured zones in the Francevillian sedimentary rocks met organic-rich sediments. This resulted in the reduction of U(VI) in the dissolved uranyl ions to U(IV), causing the precipitation of pitchblende and uraninite. It has been proposed that between 2.2 and 1.9 billion years ago, the earth's atmosphere experienced a remarkable temporary rise in O[sub 2] content; this event may account for the uranium-bearing, oxidizing aqueous solutions in the Francevillian rocks.

Organic matter accumulation in a thick, lacustrine, Lower Cretaceous sedimentary sequence in Gabon: Facies and maturity variations  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A total of about forty core samples representing an almost two kilometer thick, lacustrine sedimentary sequence of Neocomian age in the south Gabon basin was analysed for its hydrocarbon generation potential, maturity and further organic matter characteristics. Organic carbon concentrations are variable and not particularly high (0.4-5%), but the organic matter is hydrogen-rich. This hydrogen-richness finds its expression in high hydrogen indices (about 600 to 700 mg hc/g TOC) which decrease with increasing maturation. According to pyrolysis experiments, hydrocarbon generation from the immature sediments is predicted to begin only at temperatures greater than 100{degrees}C and reaches a maximum only at temperatures greater than 150{degrees}C, because the organic material possesses a very high thermal stability. Such a high thermal stability was already established for lacustrine organic matter from some other deposits (e.g. Green River oil shales) and is certainly an important factor for the evaluation of hydrocarbon potentials in lacustrine basins. The maturity of the organic matter changes from immature to mature with increasing depth. Peak oil generation stage was almost reached by the deepest samples as indicated by a variety of optical and geochemical parameters. Generated petroleum should be wax-rich and rather poor in gas, except if oil to gas cracking occurs within the source rocks. With respect to molecular geochemistry, several interesting pecularities were found. As an example, variable distributions of several unknown tetracyclic terpanes (molecular formula C{sub 24}H{sub 42}) were detected in the samples of lower maturity. Two series of terpane pseudohomologues occur in the more mature samples, one of which is assumed to consist of diahopanes, the other yet remaining unknown. These compounds seem to be widely distributed in lacustrine sediments of higher maturity, thus possibly representing maturity and/or facies indicators.

U-shaped slope gully systems and sediment waves on the passive margin of Gabon (West Africa)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract 3-D seismic reflection data has enabled the documentation of a system of remarkable modern and buried u-shaped gullies which intimately co-exist with upslope migrating sediment waves along 80 km of the Gabon continental slope. The modern gullies occur on a silty mud-dominated slope in water depths of 150–1500 m on an ~ 50 km wide slope with a gradient of 4.5° decreasing to 1.5°. The gully sets persist laterally for distances of at least 40 km and extend downslope for distances of up to 60 km. The gullies are u-shaped in cross-section, with a relief of 5–30 m, and widths of 50–400 m. Intriguingly, the gullies become narrower and shallower with distance down the slope, as well as increasing in number down slope. The majority of the gullies appear to be erosional but some appear to have resulted from simultaneous aggradation along inter-gully ridges and non-deposition along the adjacent gully floor. Hence, these gullies are interpreted to have formed mainly in response to spatially-variable deposition, rather than erosion. Upslope migrating sediment waves occur in close proximity to the gullies. Gullies cross fields of sediment waves and waves are observed to migrate up-slope locally within both the erosional and aggradational gullies. Evidence is lacking for any slumping or headward erosion in the headwall region of the gullies, which discounts formation by very local sediment gravity flows originating from shelf-edge collapse, as has been observed in other v-shaped gully systems. Based on our new data, and supported by theoretical studies on the mechanics of turbidity currents, we propose that the gullies and related sediment waves were formed by diffuse, sheet-like, mud-rich turbidity currents that presumably originated on the shelf. Instabilities in the turbidity currents generated a wave-shaped perturbation in a cross-flow direction leading to regularly spaced regions of faster and slower flow. For the non-aggradational and erosional gullies it is inferred that gully axes experienced flow velocities that mainly exceeded the settling velocity of the sediment in suspension, and thus no deposition occurred. In contrast, the aggradational gullies indicate lower flow velocities with sediment deposition both within the gully axes and on the gully flanks. Mixed mode gullies are also found which indicate that successive flows can experience variations in flow properties leading to interspersed erosional and depositional events.

Sedimentary dynamics and extensional structuring related to early Cretaceous rifting of Neocomian and Barremian deposits of the interior basin of Gabon  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Recent field and subsurface data about the early Neocomian N’dombo series and the Neocomian to mid-Barremian Schistes series of the interior basin of Gabon further our understanding of the initial stages of early Cretaceous N40–60°E extensional rifting. The syn-rift series comprise fluvial–lacustrine claystones–sandstones, rare conglomerates, and carbonates. The syn-rift fill begins with braided-stream feldspathic sandstones. These are overlain first by fluvial–lacustrine deposits and then by predominantly lacustrine–palustrine claystones, which are potential petroleum source rocks. The claystones are eroded in part and are capped by the pre-Aptian angular unconformity marking the end of Cretaceous rifting in the interior basin. This change in syn-rift facies and depositional environments reflects a rise in base level in response to accelerated subsidence after the initial stage of rifting. The syn-rift deposits form two fining-upward sequences several 100–1000 m thick.

Patch-occupancy models indicate human activity as major determinant of forest elephant Loxodonta cyclotis seasonal distribution in an industrial corridor in Gabon  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The importance of human activity and ecological features in influencing African forest elephant ranging behaviour was investigated in the Rabi–Ndogo corridor of the Gamba Complex of Protected Areas in southwest Gabon. Locations in a wide geographical area with a range of environmental variables were selected for patch-occupancy surveys using elephant dung to assess seasonal presence and absence of elephants. Patch-occupancy procedures allowed for covariate modelling evaluating hypotheses for both occupancy in relation to human activity and ecological features, and detection probability in relation to vegetation density. The best fitting models for old and fresh dung data sets indicate that (1) detection probability for elephant dung is negatively related to the relative density of the vegetation, and (2) human activity, such as presence and infrastructure, are more closely associated with elephant distribution patterns than are ecological features, such as the presence of wetlands and preferred fresh fruit. Our findings emphasize the sensitivity of elephants to human disturbance, in this case infrastructure development associated with gas and oil production. Patch-occupancy methodology offers a viable alternative to current transect protocols for monitoring programs with multiple covariates.

Transition from alkaline to calc-alkaline volcanism during evolution of the Paleoproterozoic Francevillian basin of eastern Gabon (Western Central Africa)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract We report new geochemical data for the volcanic and subvolcanic rocks associated with the evolution of the Francevillian basin of eastern Gabon during Paleoproterozoic times (c. 2.1–2 Ga). Filling of this basin has proceeded through four main sedimentary or volcano-sedimentary episodes, namely FA, FB, FC and FD. Volcanism started during the FB episode being present only in the northern part of the basin (Okondja sub-basin). This volcanism is ultramafic to trachytic in composition and displays a rather constant alkaline geochemical signature. This signature is typical of a within-plate environment, consistent with the rift-setting generally postulated for the Francevillian basin during the FB period. Following FB, the FC unit is 10–20 m-thick silicic horizon (jasper) attesting for a massive input of silica in the basin. Following FC, the FD unit is a c. 200–400 m-thick volcano-sedimentary sequence including felsic tuffs and epiclastic rocks. The geochemical signatures of these rocks are totally distinct from those of the FB alkaline lavas. High Th/Ta and La/Ta ratios attest for a calc-alkaline signature and slight fractionation between heavy rare-earth suggests melting at a rather low pressure. Such characteristics are comparable to those of felsic lavas associated with the Taupo zone of New Zealand, a modern ensialic back-arc basin. Following FD, the FE detrital unit is defined only in the Okondja region, probably associated with a late-stage collapse of the northern part of the basin. It is suggested that the alkaline to calc-alkaline volcanic transition reflects the evolution of the Francevillian basin from a diverging to a converging setting, in response to the onset of converging movements in the Eburnean Belt of Central Africa.

After some comments on the organization of RSE and RCC Committees, the paper presents: (1) the status of the different French code rules (RSE-M and A16 document); (2) how can one take into consideration some complex geometry or loading case situations; (3) some comparisons with ASME Code-Section XI; and (4) few examples of major on-going developments for flaw evaluation for different components. In conclusion, two different sets of rules are under development one in RSE-M for PWRs and one in RSE-MR for FBRs using partly the A16 proposals. These rules have to remain consistent, but not necessary identical due to the specific components covered by these documents. The components can be very different in term of pressure load, operating temperature, transient thermal loads and seismic loads.

French Sizing of Medical Devices is not Fit for Purpose  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

PurposeThe purpose of the study is to quantify the variation in the metric equivalent of French size in a range of medical devices, from various manufacturers, used in interventional radiology.MethodsThe labelling of a range of catheters, introducers, drains, balloons, stents, and endografts was examined. Products were chosen to achieve a broad range of French sizes from several manufacturers. To assess manufacturing accuracy, eight devices were selected for measurement using a laser micrometer. The external diameters of three specimens of each device were measured at centimeter intervals along the length of the device to ensure uniformity.ResultsA total of 200 labels of interventional radiology equipment were scrutinized. The results demonstrate a wide variation in the metric equivalent of French sizing. Labelled products can vary in diameter across the product range by up to 0.79 mm.The devices selected for measurement with the non-contact laser micrometer demonstrate acceptable manufacturing consistency. The external diameter differed by 0.05 mm on average.ConclusionsOur results demonstrate wide variation in the interpretation of the French scale by different manufacturers of medical devices. This has the potential to lead to problems using coaxial systems especially when the products are from different manufacturers. It is recommended that standard labelling should be employed by all manufacturers conveying specific details of the equipment. Given the wide variation in the interpretation of the French scale, our opinion is that this scale either needs to be abandoned or be strictly defined and followed.

Performances of Malaria P.f/Pan Rapid Test Device Acon® (Pf HRP2/pan aldolase) and Malaria Pf Rapid Test Device Acon® (Pf HRP2) for the diagnosis of malaria in adults and children living in Gabon, Central Africa  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The Malaria Pf Rapid Test Device Acon® (Acon Labs) and the pan HRP2/aldolase RDT, Malaria P.f/Pan Rapid Test Device Acon® (Acon Labs), performances were evaluated for malaria species diagnosis in 592 febrile patients living in Gabon using microscopy as gold standard. Sensitivities were equal or above 96.0% for Plasmodium falciparum detection, of 62.5% for non–P. falciparum malaria species detection and higher in younger children (100%). Negative predictive values were greater than 97.0%. Acon®HRP2 had a higher specificity (96.6%) and lower false-positive (FP) rate (9.3%) compared to Acon®Pf/Pan, which had a specificity of 87.3% and a FP rate of 27.1% (P < 0.01). Overall, 32.5% of all Acon® Pf/Pan tests resulted in a “faint band” with only 2 resulted from samples with a parasitemia below 100 p/?L. The accuracy of Acon®HRP2 RDT for the diagnosis of P. falciparum infection is confirmed. However, the high FP rate observed with Acon®Pf/Pan is a limitation for its use.

Natural fission reactors in the Franceville basin, Gabon: A review of the conditions and results of a {open_quotes}critical event{close_quotes} in a geologic system  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Natural nuclear fission reactors are only known in two uranium deposits in the world, the Oklo and Bangombe deposits of the Franceville basin: Gabon. Since 1982, five new reactor zones have been discovered in these deposits and studied since 1989 in a cooperative European program. New geological, mineralogical, and geochemical studies have been carried out in order to understand the behavior of the actinides and fission products which have been stored in a geological environment for more than 2.0 Ga years. The Franceville basin and the uranium deposits remained geologically stable over a long period of time. Therefore, the sites of Oklo and Bangombe are well preserved. For the reactors, two main periods of actinide and radionuclides migration have been observed: during the criticality, under P-T conditions of 300 bars and 400-500{degrees}C, respectively, and during a distention event which affected the Franceville basin 800 to 900 Ma ago and which was responsible for the intrusion of dolerite dikes close to the reactors. New isotopic analyses on uranium dioxides, clays, and phosphates allow us to determine their respective importance for the retention of fission products. The UO{sub 2} matrix appears to be efficient at retaining most actinides and fission products such as REEs, Y, and Zr but not the volatile fission products (Cd, Cs, Xe, and Kr) nor Rb, Sr, and Ba. Some fissiogenic elements such as Mo, Tc, Ru, Rh, Pd, and Te could have formed metallic and oxide inclusion in the UO{sub 2} matrix which are similar to those observed in artificial spent fuel. Clays and phosphate minerals also appear to have played a role in the retention of fissiogenic REEs and also of Pu. 82 refs., 21 figs., 12 tabs.

Operating nuclear plant feedback to ASME and French codes  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The French have an advantage in nuclear plant operating experience feedback due to the highly centralized nature of their nuclear industry. There is only one utility in charge of design as well as operations (EDF) and only one reactor vendor (Framatome). The ASME Code has played a key role in resolving technical issues in the design and operation of nuclear plants since the inception of nuclear power. The committee structure of the Code brings an ideal combination of senior technical people with both broad and specialized experience to bear on complex how safe is safe enough technical issues. The authors now see an even greater role for the ASME Code in a proposed new regulatory era for the US nuclear industry. The current legalistic confrontational regulatory era has been quite destructive. There now appears to be a real opportunity to begin a new era of technical consensus as the primary means for resolving safety issues. This change can quickly be brought about by having the industry take operating plant problems and regulatory technical issues directly to the ASME Code for timely resolution. Surprisingly, there is no institution in the US nuclear industry with such a mandate. In fact, the industry is organized to feedback through the Nuclear Regulatory Commission issues which could be far better resolved through the ASME Code. Major regulatory benefits can be achieved by closing this loop and providing systematic interaction with the ASME Code. The essential elements of a new regulatory era and ideas for organizing US institutional industry responsibilities, taken from the French experience, are described in this paper.

Radon emanation measurement using French and Russian track detectors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper presents the first results of a new Franco-Russian project: the International Centre for Radon Expertise (I.C.R.E.). The objectives of this center include determining the sources and contents of natural radioactive gases and their radioactive daughters in order to provide protection against radiation for the population and the environment, and trace the migration of radioactive elements in the soil and plants. Passive radon measurement techniques developed in France and in Russia have been used together to conduct preliminary studies. The results of a comparison of the two techniques, applied both in laboratory and outdoors, are also presented. In order to develop the one passive technique that will be used in future studies, the possibility of optimization using various French and Russian detectors has been investigated. Attempts have been made to compare the response of original measurement cells with nuclear track detectors. Comparisons of such track detector responses have been performed at the university of Franche-Comte in France using various radon environmental conditions (atmospheric gas, soil gas and in water).

Risks of non-lethal weapon use: Case studies of three French victims of stinger grenades  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The development of non-lethal weapons started in the 1960s. In France, they have been used by the police for about 10 years. We relate the cases of three French women, victims of stinger grenades, non-lethal weapons recently adopted by the French law enforcement to distract and disperse crowds. The three victims presented serious injuries requiring emergency surgical care. One lost her eye. Based on these cases, we discuss the lethal character of these weapons and propose measures to be taken to prevent their dramatic consequences. Although the danger is obviously less than for firearms, stinger grenades are nonetheless potentially lethal and cause serious physical injuries.

Vanishing White Matter Disease in French-Canadian Patients From Quebec  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractBackground Vanishing white matter disease is an autosomal recessive leukodystrophy caused by mutations in any of the five genes encoding the subunits of the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B. Most of the reported patients are of North American and European ancestry. Objective The objective of the study was to review the clinical, radiological, and molecular characteristics of vanishing white matter disease in a cohort of French-Canadian patients. Methods Between 2004 and March 2012, five French-Canadian (non-Cree) patients from Quebec were clinically and genetically diagnosed with vanishing white matter disease within three Montreal Neurogenetics and Leukodystrophy clinics. Their clinical presentation and evolution, demographic characteristics, genetic mutations, and imaging were reviewed and compared with what is known in the literature. Results Sequencing of the exons and intronic boundaries of the EIF2B1-5 genes revealed a rare 260C>T (A87V) missense mutation in EIF2B3 in two homozygous patients and one compound heterozygous patient. This mutation was previously reported in only one patient in the literature. The carrier frequency is unknown. Also, three of five Quebec patients had an extremely rare vanishing white matter disease presentation of migraines with transient neurological abnormalities. Conclusion The 260C>T (A87V) mutation in exon 3 of the EIF2B3 gene is likely a founder mutation for vanishing white matter disease in Quebec. Transient hemiparesthesia and hemiparesis episodes accompanied by headaches as presenting abnormalities of vanishing white matter disease are usually rare but seemed to be more frequent among the French-Canadian Quebec patients. They seemed to be preceded by periods of stress.

Review of In-Service Inspection and Repair Technique Developments for French Liquid Metal Fast Reactors  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In-service monitoring of nuclear plants is indispensable for both the Operator and the Regulator. The notion of in-service monitoring ranges from the continuous monitoring of the reactor in operation to the thorough in-service reactor inspection during programmed shutdowns. However, the highly specific environment found in French liquid metal fast reactor plants - Phenix and Superphenix - makes monitoring and inspection complicated because of the use of a sodium coolant that is hot, opaque, and difficult to drain.The Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique, in collaboration with its traditional French partners, Electricite de France utilities and FRAMATOME/Novatome Engineering, decided to conduct a 6-yr research and development program (1994-2000) to explore this problem vis-a-vis Superphenix, as well as the possibilities of intervening within the reactor block or on components in a sodium environment. Furthermore, the safety reevaluation of Phenix, conducted between 1994 and 2003, represented an excellent 'test bench' during which the limits of inspection processes - applied to an integrated reactor concept - were surpassed using techniques such as fuel subassembly head scanning, ultrasonic examination of the core support, and visual inspection of the cover-gas plenum following a partial sodium draining. Repair techniques were investigated for cleaning of sodium wet structure surfaces, cutting of damaged parts, and welding in sodium aerosol atmosphere. Both conventional and laser processes were tested.

An Information Building on Radioactivity and Nuclear Energy for the French CEA Cadarache Research Center - 13492  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The CEA Cadarache research center is one of the 10 research centers of the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA). Distributed throughout various research platforms, it focuses on nuclear fission, nuclear fusion, new energy technologies (hydrogen, solar, biomass) and fundamental research in the field of vegetal biology. It is the most important technological research and development centers for energy in Europe. Considering the sensitive nature of nuclear activities, the questions surrounding the issue of radioactive waste, the nuclear energy and the social, economic and environmental concerns for present and future generations, the French Government asked nuclear actors to open communication and to give all the information asked by the Local Information Commission (CLI) and the public [1]. In this context, the CEA Cadarache has decided to better show and explain its expertise and experience in the area of nuclear energy and nuclear power plant design, and to make it available to stakeholders and to the public. CEA Cadarache receives each year more than 9000 visitors. To complete technical visits of the research facilities and laboratories, a scientific cultural center has been built in 2011 to inform the public on CEA Cadarache research activities and to facilitate the acceptance of nuclear energy in a way suited to the level of knowledge of the visitors. A modern interactive exhibition of 150 m{sup 2} allows visitors to find out more about energy, CEA Cadarache research programs, radioactive waste management and radiological impact on the research center activities. It also offers an auditorium for group discussions and for school groups to discover science through enjoyment. This communication center has received several thousand visitors since its opening on October 2011; the initial results of this experience are now available. It's possible to explain the design of this exhibition, to give some statistics on the number of the visitors, their characteristics and their perception after their center visits. (authors)

The petroleum systems of the Ogooue Delta, Offshore Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

An analysis of the petroleum geology of the Ogooue Delta region reveals the presence of two independent petroleum systems. The first system appears to have been generated from a pre-Cenomanian restricted marine source. These oils are largely reservoired in Batanga Formation sandstones (Maastrichtian) and are deposited principally along the southern margin of the delta. The second system appears to have been generated from the Azile and Anguille Formations (Senonian). These Upper Cretaceous oils are reservoired principally within Anguille reservoirs. These accumulations appear geographically less restricted, but appear most concentrated within the northern portion of the delta. The geographic distribution of the two systems appears to be controlled by several factors including the distribution of the oil-prone source, the nature of migration network, and the level of thermal maturity. The pre-Cenomanian system appears to have a more effective mechanism for vertical migration than the Azile-Anguille sourced system. It is unclear as to why differences in the migration network should exist within a single delta complex. Although the two systems have different source rocks they both share one major controlling factor. In both cases the areal limit of the petroleum system is constrained by thermal maturation. The overburden associated with the delta complex provided for the appropriate levels of thermal maturation. Modeling results suggest that the pre-Cenomanian system began generating liquid hydrocarbons during the Oligocene. The Senonian system began generating hydrocarbons during the Miocene. Both systems are still actively generating hydro- carbons.

Highlights: • 110 French incinerators are compared with LCA based on plant-specific data. • Environmental impacts vary as a function of plants energy recovery and NO{sub x} emissions. • E.g. climate change impact ranges from ?58 to 408 kg CO{sub 2}-eq/tonne of residual MSW. • Implications for LCA of waste management in a decision-making process are detailed. - Abstract: Incineration is the main option for residual Municipal Solid Waste treatment in France. This study compares the environmental performances of 110 French incinerators (i.e. 85% of the total number of plants currently in activity in France) in a Life Cycle Assessment perspective, considering 5 non-toxic impact categories: climate change, photochemical oxidant formation, particulate matter formation, terrestrial acidification and marine eutrophication. Mean, median and lower/upper impact potentials are determined considering the incineration of 1 tonne of French residual Municipal Solid Waste. The results highlight the relatively large variability of the impact potentials as a function of the plant technical performances. In particular, the climate change impact potential of the incineration of 1 tonne of waste ranges from a benefit of ?58 kg CO{sub 2}-eq to a relatively large burden of 408 kg CO{sub 2}-eq, with 294 kg CO{sub 2}-eq as the average impact. Two main plant-specific parameters drive the impact potentials regarding the 5 non-toxic impact categories under study: the energy recovery and delivery rate and the NO{sub x} process-specific emissions. The variability of the impact potentials as a function of incinerator characteristics therefore calls for the use of site-specific data when required by the LCA goal and scope definition phase, in particular when the study focuses on a specific incinerator or on a local waste management plan, and when these data are available.

Two-nucleon high-spin states, the Bansal-French model and the crude shell model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Recent data on two-nucleon stretched high-spin states agree well with the crude shell model predictions. For two-neutron high-spin states, the A and T linear dependence of B2n in the Bansal-French model can be deduced from the A and T linear dependence of Bn and the crude shell model. 72- states in some Zn and Ge even nuclei might be two-proton states. This hypothesis should be confirmed by two-proton transfer reaction.

The Effect of Fuel Price on Demands for Road and Rail Travel: An Application to the French Case  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper analyses the fuel price sensitivity of French traffic. Crucially, it develops the use of innovative econometric models. Partial adjustment models have been selected to represent traffic between 1990 and 2010. The road traffic model includes explanatory variables such as the fuel price, GDP, the length of the motorway network, and a lagged variable of traffic. Furthermore, a rail demand model including fuel price as an explanatory variable is also processed. In the short term, an increase of 10% in fuel price leads to a fall of 1,4% in the road traffic whereas in the long term, it leads to a fall of 2,8%.

Innovation in engineering education: a French sample of design and continuous updating of an engineering school to industrial needs  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The ENSGSI (National School of Industrial Engineering) was founded in 1993 and drives this new approach to training engineers. Cooperation with the economic environment is organised around three actions: accompanying industrial change within regional SMEs; proposing actions to accompany the sparking of innovation in major industries as well as in service sectors such as health; structuring the management of complex local government projects. This paper will present how the evolution in industrial and economic demand regarding the question of innovation, as well as the consideration of this in the orientation of a French laboratory's research projects, contributed to reducing the gap between corporate requirements for a new type of engineer and the capacity of engineering schools to meet this demand. We will present the methods used both to design the school and to build our teaching referential which ensures a process of permanent adjustment to market needs.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The 100-F-46 french drain consisted of a 1.5 to 3 m long, vertically buried, gravel-filled pipe that was approximately 1 m in diameter. Also included in this waste site was a 5 cm cast-iron pipeline that drained condensate from the 119-F Stack Sampling Building into the 100-F-46 french drain. In accordance with this evaluation, the confirmatory sampling results support a reclassification of this site to No Action. The current site conditions achieve the remedial action objectives and the corresponding remedial action goals established in the Remaining Sites ROD. The results of confirmatory sampling show that residual contaminant concentrations do not preclude any future uses and allow for unrestricted use of shallow zone soils. The results also demonstrate that residual contaminant concentrations are protective of groundwater and the Columbia River.

Radioactive Waste Management - It's Role in contributing and achieving Sustainability. R1.13 The French strategy of waste management: technical and political dimensions of sustainability  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The sustainability of an energy policy depends on the manner in which it satisfies environmental, economical and social requirements. Nuclear energy is not an exception. The objectives of the future nuclear systems, as defined in the Generation IV International Forum, tend to optimize the ability of nuclear energy to satisfy sustainable development goals. In this regard, they involve strong commitments concerning waste management policy : five designs in six are based on a closed fuel cycle, in order to minimize the volume and radiotoxicity of final waste, and to recycle the fissile materials to save natural resources. Since its beginnings, the French civil nuclear programme has considered a long-term perspective and has developed spent fuel reprocessing. The French current industrial technology has already permitted to recycle 96% of spent fuel materials, to save 30% of natural resources, to reduce by 5 the amount of waste and to reduce by 10 the waste radiotoxicity, all these benefits for less than 6% of the kWh total cost. This strategy has always been criticized by the nuclear opponents, precisely because they saw that it was a sustainable way, and didn't accept to consider nuclear energy as a sustainable source of power. Two arguments were put forward these criticisms. First, the cost of reprocessing versus once-through cycle and second, the risk of proliferation induced by U-Pu partitioning process. These arguments were also invoked in international debates, and they have also been pleaded by the anti-nukes during the National Debate on HLLLW, at the end of 2005, preceding the vote of a new law in 2006 by the French parliament. Fortunately they have not convinced public opinion in France nor political decision-makers. A majority of people with no regard to technical background understand that recycling and saving the natural resources are sustainable principles. And, from a technical point of view, the 6% over cost does not seem significant considering the economics of nuclear power. Lastly, the risk proliferation is more related to the front-end technologies than to the back-end ones. So, the 2006 French Law 'for a sustainable radioactive waste management' has reinforced the closed-cycle strategy and has paved the way for a long-term development of nuclear energy in the 21. century and beyond, towards the third and fourth generations of nuclear systems. It has defined an R and D programme including the continuation of partitioning-transmutation of minor actinides and their recycling in 4. generation fast reactors. In parallel, the French president has committed the French Atomic Energy Commission to implement a 4. generation prototype reactor by 2020, with international cooperation, to guarantee the permanence of technology progress. In this regard, the waste management strategy can't be built without taking into account the perspectives of development of nuclear energy. These perspectives must include the best available technologies and, in the other hand, an adaptation to the political evolutions of societies. (authors)

Adaptation costs for sustainable development and ecological transitions: a presentation of the structural model M3ED with reference to French energy?economy?carbon dioxide emission prospects*  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The aim of this paper is to assess the adaptation costs associated with the transition to a sustainable development path, taking the example of carbon dioxide emissions in the French economy. The model used is based on systems dynamics modelling and energy input-output analysis. This type of approach has the interesting property of precisely defining the nature of interactions between the different economic sectors, and between the economic sectors and the environment. This provides a framework within which to test different types of economic, technology and environment policy. In effect, according to our interests, it is necessary to measure problems of resources allocation or sequential choices between different alternatives why and how a particular solution comes to be selected from a multiplicity of alternatives. First, we characterise the methodological and conceptual specification of the model. Secondly, we locate specific properties of the model linked with both ecological sustainability and economic feasability constraints. Thirdly, a sensitivity test is applied concerning different control policy scenarios for the case of carbon dioxide emissions in the French economy.

Application of MELCOR Code to a French PWR 900 MWe Severe Accident Sequence and Evaluation of Models Performance Focusing on In-Vessel Thermal Hydraulic Results  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In the ambit of the Severe Accident Network of Excellence Project (SARNET), funded by the European Union, 6. FISA (Fission Safety) Programme, one of the main tasks is the development and validation of the European Accident Source Term Evaluation Code (ASTEC Code). One of the reference codes used to compare ASTEC results, coming from experimental and Reactor Plant applications, is MELCOR. ENEA is a SARNET member and also an ASTEC and MELCOR user. During the first 18 months of this project, we performed a series of MELCOR and ASTEC calculations referring to a French PWR 900 MWe and to the accident sequence of 'Loss of Steam Generator (SG) Feedwater' (known as H2 sequence in the French classification). H2 is an accident sequence substantially equivalent to a Station Blackout scenario, like a TMLB accident, with the only difference that in H2 sequence the scram is forced to occur with a delay of 28 seconds. The main events during the accident sequence are a loss of normal and auxiliary SG feedwater (0 s), followed by a scram when the water level in SG is equal or less than 0.7 m (after 28 seconds). There is also a main coolant pumps trip when {delta}Tsat < 10 deg. C, a total opening of the three relief valves when Tric (core maximal outlet temperature) is above 603 K (330 deg. C) and accumulators isolation when primary pressure goes below 1.5 MPa (15 bar). Among many other points, it is worth noting that this was the first time that a MELCOR 1.8.5 input deck was available for a French PWR 900. The main ENEA effort in this period was devoted to prepare the MELCOR input deck using the code version v.1.8.5 (build QZ Oct 2000 with the latest patch 185003 Oct 2001). The input deck, completely new, was prepared taking into account structure, data and same conditions as those found inside ASTEC input decks. The main goal of the work presented in this paper is to put in evidence where and when MELCOR provides good enough results and why, in some cases mainly referring to its specific models (candling, corium pool behaviour, etc.) they were less good. A future work will be the preparation of an input deck for the new MELCOR 1.8.6. and to perform a code-to-code comparison with ASTEC v1.2 rev. 1. (author)

Safety Criticality Standards Using the French CRISTAL Code Package: Application to the AREVA NP UO{sub 2} Fuel Fabrication Plant  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Criticality safety evaluations implement requirements to proof of sufficient sub critical margins outside of the reactor environment for example in fuel fabrication plants. Basic criticality data (i.e., criticality standards) are used in the determination of sub critical margins for all processes involving plutonium or enriched uranium. There are several criticality international standards, e.g., ARH-600, which is one the US nuclear industry relies on. The French Nuclear Safety Authority (DGSNR and its advising body IRSN) has requested AREVA NP to review the criticality standards used for the evaluation of its Low Enriched Uranium fuel fabrication plants with CRISTAL V0, the recently updated French criticality evaluation package. Criticality safety is a concern for every phase of the fabrication process including UF{sub 6} cylinder storage, UF{sub 6}-UO{sub 2} conversion, powder storage, pelletizing, rod loading, assembly fabrication, and assembly transportation. Until 2003, the accepted criticality standards were based on the French CEA work performed in the late seventies with the APOLLO1 cell/assembly computer code. APOLLO1 is a spectral code, used for evaluating the basic characteristics of fuel assemblies for reactor physics applications, which has been enhanced to perform criticality safety calculations. Throughout the years, CRISTAL, starting with APOLLO1 and MORET 3 (a 3D Monte Carlo code), has been improved to account for the growth of its qualification database and for increasing user requirements. Today, CRISTAL V0 is an up-to-date computational tool incorporating a modern basic microscopic cross section set based on JEF2.2 and the comprehensive APOLLO2 and MORET 4 codes. APOLLO2 is well suited for criticality standards calculations as it includes a sophisticated self shielding approach, a P{sub ij} flux determination, and a 1D transport (S{sub n}) process. CRISTAL V0 is the result of more than five years of development work focusing on theoretical approaches and the implementation of user-friendly graphical interfaces. Due to its comprehensive physical simulation and thanks to its broad qualification database with more than a thousand benchmark/calculation comparisons, CRISTAL V0 provides outstanding and reliable accuracy for criticality evaluations for configurations covering the entire fuel cycle (i.e. from enrichment, pellet/assembly fabrication, transportation, to fuel reprocessing). After a brief description of the calculation scheme and the physics algorithms used in this code package, results for the various fissile media encountered in a UO{sub 2} fuel fabrication plant will be detailed and discussed.

Perception of second?language (L2) production by first?language (L1) speakers of different dialectal backgrounds: The case of Japanese?speaking learners’ /u/ perceived by French and Quebec native speakers.  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The high back rounded /u/ of Parisian French (PF) is characterized by a concentration of energy in the low frequency zone (Quebec French (QF) has a “lax” variant [U] in closed syllables (as in “soupe”) with its F2 amounting to 1000–1100 Hz [P. Martin “Le système vocalique du français du Québec. De l’acoustique à la phonologie.” La linguistique 38(2) 71–88 (2002)]. Japanese?speaking learners of French (JSL) tend to produce French /u/ with high F2 as in Japanese /u/ which in turn tends to be perceived by PF listeners as /?/. Do QF listeners show different behavior because of their lax variant of /u/? Our perception experiment using 18 tokens each of /u y ?/ produced by five JSL showed that the 16 PF listeners examined perceived those stimuli of /u/ with F2 between 1000 and 1100 Hz as /u/ and /?/ almost equally often but considered as very poor exemplars of either of them. By contrast the 16 QF listeners tested identified the same stimuli of /u/ almost always as /u/ with a better goodness rating than NF listeners’. These findings suggest that native speakers’ judgment about non?native speakers’ production might depend on the native dialect of the listener.

Impact of the deployment schedule of fast breeding reactors in the frame of French act for nuclear materials and radioactive waste management  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In the frame of the French Act of June 28, 2006 on 'a sustainable management of nuclear materials and radioactive waste' EDF R and D assesses various research scenarios of transition between the actual French fleet and a Generation IV fleet with a closed fuel cycle where plutonium is multi-recycled. The basic scenarios simulate a deployment of 60 GWe of Sodium-cooled Fast Reactors (SFRs) in two steps: one third from 2040 to 2050 and the rest from 2080 to 2100 (scenarios 2040). These research scenarios assume that SFR technology will be ready for industrial deployment in 2040. One of the many sensitivity analyses that EDF, as a nuclear power plant operator, must evaluate is the impact of a delay of SFR technology in terms of uranium consumptions, plutonium needs and fuel cycle utilities gauging. The sensitivity scenarios use the same assumptions as scenarios 2040 but they simulate a different transition phase: SFRs are deployed in one step between 2080 and 2110 (scenarios 2080). As the French Act states to conduct research on minor actinides (MA) management, we studied different options for 2040 and 2080 scenarios: no MA transmutation, americium transmutation in heterogeneous mode based on americium Bearing Blankets (AmBB) in SFRs and all MA transmutation in heterogeneous mode based on MA Bearing Blankets (MABB). Moreover, we studied multiple parameters that could impact the deployment of these reactors (SFR load factor, increase of the use of MOX in Light Water Reactors, increase of the cooling time in spent nuclear fuel storage...). Each scenario has been computed with the EDF R and D fuel cycle simulation code TIRELIRE-STRATEGIE and optimized to meet various fuel cycle constraints such as using the reprocessing facility with long period of constant capacity, keeping the temporary stored mass of plutonium and MA under imposed limits, recycling older assemblies first... These research scenarios show that the transition from the current PWR fleet to an equivalent fleet of Generation IV SFR can follow different courses. The design of SFR-V2B that we used in our studies needs a high inventory of plutonium resulting in tension on this resource. Several options can be used in order to loosen this tension: our results lead to favour the use of axial breeding blanket in SFR. Load factor of upcoming reactors has to be regarded with attention as it has a high impact on plutonium resource for a given production of electricity. The deployment of SFRs beginning in 2080 instead of 2040 following the scenarios we described creates higher tensions on reprocessing capacity, separated plutonium storage and spent fuel storage. In the frame of the French Act, we studied minor actinides transmutation. The flux of MA in all fuel cycle plants is really high, which will lead to decay heat, a and neutron emission related problems. In terms of reduction of MA inventories, the deployment of MA transmutation cycle must not delay the installation of SFRs. The plutonium production in MABB and AmBB does not allow reducing the use of axial breeding blankets. The impact of MA or Am transmutation over the high level waste disposal is more important if the SFRs are deployed later. Transmutation option (americium or all MA) does not have a significant impact on the number of canister produced nor on its long-term thermal properties. (authors)

The French codes RCC-M and RSE-M -- Design, construction and in-service inspection rules for the mechanical components of PWR nuclear islands: An overview and a comparison to the ASME codes  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The RCC-M, ``Regles de Conception et de Construction des Materiels Mecaniques des Ilots Nucleaires REP`` or, in English, ``Design and Construction Rules for the Mechanical Components of PWR Nuclear Islands`` and the RSE-M, ``Regles de Surveillance en Exploitation des Materiels Mecaniques des Ilots Nucleaires REP`` or, in English, ``In-Service Inspection Rules for the Mechanical Components of PWR Nuclear Islands`` gather all design, construction and operating practices relating to the mechanical components of French PWR nuclear islands. This paper is a presentation of these two codes. Throughout this presentation the specific aspects of the French approach will be underlined and will be compared to that of the ASME codes--mainly Section 3 and Section 11. The broad general technical scopes of the French codes are similar to those of the ASME codes. However, in some important areas of design, material specifications, procurement and manufacturing, the provisions of the RCC-M and RSE-M deviate from those of a strict mechanical Code and are more self-sustaining than those of ASME.

Role of organic matter in the Proterozoic Oklo natural fission reactors, Gabon, Africa  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Of the sixteen known Oklo and the Bangombe natural fission reactors (hydrothermally altered elastic sedimentary rocks that contain abundant uraninite and authigenic clay minerals), reactors 1 to 6 at Oklo contain only traces of organic matter, but the others are rich in organic substances. Reactors 7 to 9 are the subjects of this study. These organic-rich reactors may serve as time-tested analogues for anthropogenic nuclear-waste containment strategies. Organic matter helped to concentrate quantities of uranium sufficient to initiate the nuclear chain reactions. Liquid bitumen was generated from organic matter by hydrothermal reactions during nuclear criticality. The bitumen soon became a solid, consisting of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and an intimate mixture of cryptocrystalline graphite, which enclosed and immobilized uraninite and the fission-generated isotopes entrapped in uraninite. This mechanism prevented major loss of uranium and fission products from the natural nuclear reactors for 1.2 b.y. 24 refs., 4 figs.

Mobility of uranium, thorium and lanthanides around the Bangombe natural nuclear reactor (Gabon)  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

New mineralogical and isotopic studies were carried out on samples form the Bangombe natural nuclear reactor. This reactor is located at shallow depth in the weathering profile and has been subjected to severe supergene alteration. Textural evidence indicates partial dissolution of uraninite in the Bangombe ore related to precipitation of Fe-Ti oxyhydroxides and clay minerals (kaolinite and metahalloysite). As a consequence of the alteration of the uraninite, uranium and fissiogenic rare earth elements were released in the clayey border of the reactor, whereas radiogenic {sup 232}Th remained confined in the close vicinity of the core. A retention effect is also evidenced, under reducing conditions, in the black shales located above the reactor.

Uranium redistribution under oxidizing conditions in Oklo natural reactor zone 2, Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This mineralogical study was completed to elucidate the relationships between uranium distribution and alteration products of the host rock of natural reactor zone clays just below the reactor core. Uraninite is preserved without any alteration in the reactor core. Uranium minerals are found to be present in the fractures in the reactor zone clays associated with iron-mineral veins, galena and Ti-bearing minerals. Uranium, for which the phases could not be identified, occurs in iron-mineral veins and the iron-mineral rim of pyrite grains in the reactor zone clays. Uranium is not associated with granular iron minerals occurring in the illite matrix of the reactor zone clays. The degree of crystallinity and uranium content of the three iron-bearing alteration products suggest that they formed under different conditions; the granular iron minerals, under alteration conditions where uranium was not mobilized while the iron-mineral veins and the iron-mineral rim of pyrite, under conditions in which uranium is mobilized after the formation of the granular iron minerals.

Florencite-(La) with fissiogenic REEs from a natural fission reactor at Bangombe, Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Florecite-(La) (La/Ce = 1.09) with fissiogenic REEs and florecite-(Ce) (La/Ce = 0.62) have been identified in illite from the clay mantle surrounding a natural, 2 Ga fission reactor at Bangombre and in sandstone beneath the reactor zone, respectively. Florencite-(Ce) is apparently unrelated to nuclear processes and occurs with monazite-(Ce), apatite, TiO{sub 2} (probably anatase), zircon, and illite. Grains of florencite-(Ce) contain inclusions of thorite, chalcopyrite, and galena. Florencite-(La) was found 5 cm from the {open_quotes}core{close_quotes} of the reactor and contains inclusions of galena and U-Ti-bearing phases. Secondary uraninite and coffinite have precipitated on some of the florencite grains. The chemical composition of florencite-(La) as determined by electron microprobe analysis is (La{sub 0.38}Ce{sub 0.35}Nd{sub 0.06}Sm{sub 0.01}-Ca{sub 0.03}Sr{sub 0.17})(Al{sub 2.98}Fe{sub 0.02}{sup 3+})(PO{sub 4})[PO{sub 3.80}(OH){sub 0.20}](OH){sub 6}. Secondary ion mass spectrometry revealed that between 27 and 30% of Nd and 67 and 71% of Sm in florencite-(La) is fissiogenic. The presence of fissiogenic REEs in {open_quotes}florencite{close_quotes} from the reactor zone in Bangombe and their preferential concentration in florencite relative to the bulk sample of clay demonstrate that aluminous phosphates may have played a more significant role in the fixation of fissiogenic REES released from uraninite after the sustained fission reactions than sorption onto clays. 30 refs., 3 figs., 2 tabs.

Implementation of an adapted LCA framework to environmental assessment of a territory: important learning points from a French Mediterranean case study  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The LCA framework was recently adapted to perform the environmental assessment of a territory. The expectations of this framework, called “territorial LCA”, are in line with the European Directive (2001/42/EC) on Strategic Environmental Assessment applied to land planning programs, i.e., providing an environmental baseline and comparing land planning scenarios. To test “territorial LCA” applicability for establishing a diagnosis, the approach was implemented in a French Mediterranean case study. According to the “territorial LCA” approach, system boundaries and land use functions must be defined and selected. Then, the inventory for all production and consumption activities is performed with a particular emphasis on data collection and on different ways to handle data gaps. Based on this inventory, certain land use functions are quantified, and the impacts are assessed through the ReCiPe life cycle impact assessment (LCIA) method. Indicators of land use functions are compared to different references to highlight the main features of the territory (e.g., high level of societal functions). For environmental impacts, the results point out that most impacts occur beyond the territory borders. Four environmental issues are identified, i.e., climate change, particulate matter formation, human toxicity and land occupation. Finally, the associated driving forces are determined (i.e., the most important ones are imports of food, goods and services and manufacturing activities). For these hotspots, the strategy applied to bridge data gaps was discussed (i.e., using environmental input output tables (EIOT)). In addition, the sensitivity to the chosen impact assessment method was analyzed by using another LCIA method (Impact World+).

Record of Cycling Operation of the Natural Nuclear Reactor in the Oklo/Okelobondo Area in Gabon  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Using selective laser extraction technique combined with sensitive ion-counting mass spectrometry, we have analyzed the isotopic structure of fission noble gases in U-free La-Ce-Sr-Ca aluminous hydroxy phosphate associated with the 2 billion yr old Oklo natural nuclear reactor. In addition to elevated abundances of fission-produced Zr, Ce, and Sr, we discovered high (up to 0.03??cm3???STP/g) concentrations of fission Xe and Kr, the largest ever observed in any natural material. The specific isotopic structure of xenon in this mineral defines a cycling operation for the reactor with 30-min active pulses separated by 2.5 h dormant periods. Thus, nature not only created conditions for self-sustained nuclear chain reactions, but also provided clues on how to retain nuclear wastes, including fission Xe and Kr, and prevent uncontrolled runaway chain reaction.

The effects of water radiolysis on local redox conditions in the Oklo, Gabon, natural fission reactors 10 and 16  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In an underground nuclear waste repository, the chemical behavior of some stored fission products and actinides depends on the redox conditions during their long-term evolution. In this respect, radiolysis is an important phenomenon which can significantly modify the local redox conditions. The Oklo natural fission zones are good examples where the effect of radiolysis can be deduced from a mineralogical and geochemical study. Zones 10 and 16 were studied because they are located at depth of 270 m in an area devoid of any recent water circulation and not subject to the effect of the lateritic alteration occurring elsewhere in this area. In zone 10, there is a marked evolution of the U-Pb-Fe-S mineralogy from the center to the periphery of the reactor zone. In the center, uraninite shows silicification and coffinitisation with the formation of galena and native lead; the PbO content of uraninite can be as much as 20 wt%. In the periphery of the reactor zone, some radiogenic lead is present as minimum (Pb{sub 3}O{sub 4}) and in Pb-bearing calcite. In the surrounding sandstones, hematite is widespread. In zone 16, the mineral paragenesis is generally comparable with that of zone 10 but with some differences. Galena is the only Pb-bearing mineral associated with uraninite crystals. The PbO content of uraninite is always <7 wt%. In the periphery of the alteration zone, barite partly replaces quartz. In the reactor zone, hematite is sometimes replaced by pyrite. In an area where the fission zone 10 is in contact with sandstones devoid of organic matter, H{sub 2}O-H{sub 2} {+-} CH{sub 4} inclusions were observed in healed microcracks in the detrital quartz grains. Based on microthermometric measurements, the salinity of the aqueous solution ranges from 0.2 to 18 wt% eq. NaCl. Raman analysis of the gas phase indicates that the hydrogen to oxygen ratio differs from an inclusion to the other. 41 refs., 15 figs., 3 tabs.

Organic free radicals and micropores in solid graphitic carbonaceous matter at the Oklo natural fission reactors, Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The presence, concentration, and distribution of organic free radicals as well as their association with specific surface areas and microporosities help characterize the evolution and behavior of the Oklo carbonaceous matter. Such information is necessary in order to evaluate uranium mineralization, liquid bitumen solidification, and radio nuclide containment at Oklo. In the Oklo ore deposits and natural fission reactors carbonaceous matter is often referred to as solid graphitic bitumen. The carbonaceous parts of the natural reactors may contain as much as 65.9% organic C by weight in heterogeneous distribution within the clay-rich matrix. The solid carbonaceous matter immobilized small uraninite crystals and some fission products enclosed in this uraninite and thereby facilitated radio nuclide containment in the reactors. Hence, the Oklo natural fission reactors are currently the subjects of detailed studies because they may be useful analogues to support performance assessment of radio nuclide containment at anthropogenic radioactive waste repository sites. Seven carbonaceous matter rich samples from the 1968 {+-} 50 Ma old natural fission reactors and the associated Oklo uranium ore deposit were studied by electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy and by measurements of specific surface areas (BET method). Humic acid, fulvic acid, and fully crystalline graphite standards were also examined by ESR spectroscopy for comparison with the Oklo solid graphitic bitumens. With one exception, the ancient Oklo bitumens have higher organic free radical concentrations than the modem humic and fulvic acid samples. The presence of carbon free radicals in the graphite standard could not be determined due to the conductivity of this material. 72 refs., 7 figs., 1 tab.

Uraninite: A 2 Ga spent nuclear fuel from the natural fission reactor at Bangombe in Gabon, West Africa  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Uraninites from the Bangombe natural fission reactor (RZB) and normal uranium-ore occur as fine veins in the sandstone host-rock as well as altered, broken, and slightly displaced grains in an illitic matrix, and in nodules and veins of solid bitumen. Inclusions of galena, (Y,Gd)-rich phosphates, a Pb-oxide and a Ti-oxide? were observed. Uraninites just below RZB were partially altered to a uranyl-sulfate. Three generations of uraninite were identified based on their PbO-contents of 8--11.06 wt%, 6 wt% (the largest population), and a younger generation with 3 wt%. Diffusional loss of Pb is indicated by the presence of a Pb-oxide at the interface to the uraninites. The behavior of the metallic fission products, incompatible with the uraninite structure, may mimic the behavior of Pb in these uraninites. The averaged impurity-content ranges from 4.29 to 6.89 wt%, and consists mainly of SiO{sub 2}, TiO{sub 2}, ZrO{sub 2}, FeO, CaO, Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} and P{sub 2}O{sub 5}. The averaged content of Y{sub 2}O{sub 3} and the Ln`s is less than 0.78 wt% and there is a scattered positive correlation with P{sub 2}O{sub 5}. The content of Y + Ln`s is generally highest in the uraninites from RZB. Uraninite hydration and the formation of uranopelite/zippeite have caused complete loss of Y and the Ln`s. The analytical results indicate that Y and the Ln`s, which are high yield fission products, may be released from uraninite during alteration in the presence of P.

Precipitation of uraninite in chlorite-bearing veins of the hydrothermal alteration zone (argile de pile) of the natural nuclear reactor at Bangombe, Republic of Gabon  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper describes the mineralogy of a phyllosilicate/uraninite/galena-bearing vein located within the hydrothermal alteration halo associated with the Bangombe reactor. Phyllosilicates within the vein include a trioctahedral Al-Mg-Fe chlorite (ripidolite), Al-rich clay (kaolinite and/or donbassite) and illite. Textural relations obtained by backscattered-electron imaging suggest that ripidolite crystallized first among the sheet silicates. Uraninite is spatially associated with ripidolite and probably precipitated at a later time. While energy-dispersive X-ray analyses suggest that the uranium phase is predominantly uraninite, coffinite or other phases may also be present.

Regularization strategy for the layered inversion of airborne TEM data: application to VTEM data acquired over the basin of Franceville (Gabon)  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Airborne transient electromagnetic (TEM) is a cost-effective method to image the distribution of electrical conductivity in the ground. We consider layered earth inversion to interpret large data sets of hundreds of kilometre. Different strategies can be used to solve this inverse problem. This consists in managing the a priori information to avoid the mathematical instability and provide the most plausible model of conductivity in depth. In order to obtain fast and realistic inversion program, we tested three kinds of regularization: two are based on standard Tikhonov procedure which consist in minimizing not only the data misfit function but a balanced optimization function with additional terms constraining the lateral and the vertical smoothness of the conductivity; another kind of regularization is based on reducing the condition number of the kernel by changing the layout of layers before minimizing the data misfit function. Finally, in order to get a more realistic distribution of conductivity, notably...

Bomb tests attack the food chain  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Ciguatera poisoning, the most common type of fish poisoning in the world, has become a major public health problem in some parts of the South Pacific. This area has always been the site of periodic outbreaks, especially after severe storms or natural disasters that damage core reefs. But since World War II it has become evident that military activities and major construction projects that wreak havoc on corals also lead to ciguatera outbreaks. Extraordinarily high rates of ciguatera poisoning have occurred on the small Pacific islands that have been used for nuclear tests and on the islands that host the military infrastructures and activities that accompany the tests. This is true for both the Marshall Islands near Bikini and Eniwetok, where U.S. tests took place, and in French Polynesia, in the area around Moruroa Atoll where the French government continues to test. Ciguatera poisoning has a disastrous effect on people who depend on fishing as a way of life and on fish as the major source of protein. 10 refs.

Treatment of Irradiated Graphite from French Bugey Reactor - 13424  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Beginning in 2009, in order to determine an alternative to direct disposal for decommissioned irradiated graphite from EDF's Bugey NPP, Studsvik and EDF began a test program to determine if graphite decontamination and destruction were practicable using Studsvik's thermal organic reduction (THOR) technology. The testing program focused primarily on the release of C-14, H-3, and Cl-36 and also monitored graphite mass loss. For said testing, a bench-scale steam reformer (BSSR) was constructed with the capability of flowing various compositions of gases at temperatures up to 1300 deg. C over uniformly sized particles of graphite for fixed amounts of time. The BSSR was followed by a condenser, thermal oxidizer, and NaOH bubbler system designed to capture H-3 and C-14. Also, in a separate series of testing, high concentration acid and peroxide solutions were used to soak the graphite and leach out and measure Cl-36. A series of gasification tests were performed to scope gas compositions and temperatures for graphite gasification using steam and oxygen. Results suggested higher temperature steam (1100 deg. C vs. 900 deg. C) yielded a practicable gasification rate but that lower temperature (900 deg. C) gasification was also a practicable treatment alternative if oxygen is fed into the process. A series of decontamination tests were performed to determine the release behavior of and extent to which C-14 and H-3 were released from graphite in a high temperature (900-1300 deg. C), low flow roasting gas environment. In general, testing determined that higher temperatures and longer roasting times were efficacious for releasing H-3 completely and the majority (80%) of C-14. Manipulating oxidizing and reducing gas environments was also found to limit graphite mass loss. A series of soaking tests was performed to measure the amount of Cl-36 in the samples of graphite before and after roasting in the BSSR. Similar to C-14 release, these soaking tests revealed that 70-80% Cl-36 is released during roasting tests. (authors)

The Thesaurus for French Local Archives and the Semantic Web  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The role of controlled vocabularies is more and more important in the management and retrieval (search) of resources. As essential components of the Semantic Web, authority systems are exposed as Linked Data and used as pivots in projects and applications to facilitate search and linking of resources. The Archives of France (an agency of the Ministry of Culture) seized the opportunity of making available on the web the thesaurus for local archives to test Linked Data technologies. Since January 2011, a website makes it possible to browse the thesaurus, to download RDF/XML documents but also to search via SPARQL which is the query language for RDF structured data (see: http://data.culture.fr/thesaurus/). This project was also an opportunity to align data with other controlled vocabularies and resources (thesaurus RAMEAU and Dbpedia) and to implement a solution for persistent identifiers of concepts of the thesaurus. This paper presents this open government data initiative, aiming not only to establish an interoperability framework between archival data, but also to consider archival data with other cultural data.

Two-billion-year-old nuclear reactors: Nature goes fission  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Once it was thought that the isotopic composition of natural uranium was invariant. It was thus surprising in 1972 when French scientists observed small but significant deficiencies of the minor isotope {sup 235}U in uranium ore. Subsequent investigations traced the isotopically anomalous material to the Oklo mine in the African Republic of Gabon. In the mine, cubic-dekametre-sized pods of rock were found to contain extraordinary concentrations of uranium, as much as 65%, with as little as half the normal isotopic abundance of {sup 235}U. In these rocks, neodymium was found to be deficient in the premordial isotope {sup 142}Nd and enriched in the fission-produced isotopes {sup 143-150}Nd. The presence of fission products was unambiguous evidence that the {sup 235}U deficiencies were the result of sustained nuclear fission. Within the heart of the natural reactors, the fission densities were on the order of 10{sup 20} fissions/cm{sup 3}, producing hundreds of megajoules of energy and tens of microwatts of power per gram of rock. Nature had forestalled man`s great discovery of energy production by nuclear fission.

French Geological Repository Project for High Level and Long-Lived Waste: Scientific Programme  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The feasibility study presented in the Dossier 2005 Argile set out to evaluate the conditions for building, operating and managing a reversible disposal facility. The research was directed at demonstrating a potential for confining long-lived radioactive waste in a deep clay formation by establishing the feasibility of the disposal principle. Results have been enough convincing and a Planning Act was passed on 28 June, 2006. Decision in principle has been taken to dispose of intermediate and high level long-lived radioactive waste in a geological repository. An application file for a license to construct a disposal facility is requested by end of 2014 and its commissioning is planned for 2025. Based on previous results as well as on recommendations made by various Dossier 2005 evaluators, a new scientific programme for 2006-2015 has been defined. It gives details of what will be covered over the 2006-2015 period. Particular emphasis is placed on consolidating scientific data, increasing understanding of certain mechanisms and using a scientific and technical integration approach. It aims at integrating scientific developments and engineering advances. The scientific work envisaged beyond 2006 has the benefit of a unique context, which is direct access to the geological medium over long timescales. It naturally extends the research carried out to date, and incorporates additional investigations of the geological medium, and the preparation of demonstration work especially through full-scale tests. Results will aim at improving the representation of repository evolutions over time, extract the relevant parameters for monitoring during the reversibility phases, reduce the parametric uncertainties and enhance the robustness of models for performance calculations and safety analyses. Structure and main orientation of the ongoing scientific programme are presented. (author)
