  • Devonian-shale gas production, from wells in a research area surrounding the Sterling Drilling Production Company, Jarvis No. 1143, located in Calhoun County, West Virginia, is from intervals affected by thrust faults and/or associated shearing. Detailed whole-core description and Markov interpretation lead to the formulation of a depositional model of ongoing pelagic sedimentation of dark gray shales, periodically interrupted by turbidites consisting of thin siltstones and associated gray shales. A fracture model includes slickensides resulting from Alleghenian thrusting. The gas reservoir in the CSW No. 2 area suggests a combination of structure-induced fracturing, possibly of two distinct types, and relatively abundantmore » and thickly bedded siltstones.« less
  • This report covers the results of a study conducted to obtain washability data for Alaskan coals to supplement the efforts of the US Department of Energy (formerly US Bureau of Mines) in its ongoing studies on washability of US coals. Alaska has 130 billion tons of identified coal resources and could be in a position to supply environmentally acceptable low-ash and low-sulfur coals to other states. Preparation characteristics were obtained for nine coal samples collected from the Nenana, Jarvis Creek, and Matanuska coal fields. The raw coals were crushed to 1 1/2 inches, 3/8 inch, and 14 mesh (Tyler) sizesmore » and float-sink separations were made at 1.30, 1.40, and 1.60 specific gravities. The results showed that six subbituminous C coals from the Nenana coal field, when crushed to minus 14 mesh and floated at specific gravity 1.40, yielded products ranging in heating values from 10,098 to 11,664 Btu/lb with 0.15 percent to 0.23 percent sulfur on a moisture free basis, making them among the most environmentally acceptable coals in the United States. A subbituminous C coal from the Jarvis Creek coal field yielded 84.9 weight-percent of float 1.40 specific gravity product with 11,272 Btu/lb on a moisture free basis and 0.98 percent sulfur after crushing to 14 mesh top size. A high volatile A and a high volatile B bituminous coal from the Matanuska coal field yielded 65.7 and 75.3 weight-percent of float 1.40 specific gravity product with heating values of 14,383 and 13,371 Btu/lb when crushed to 14 mesh top size. The sulfur in these two coals was very low (less than 0.50 percent) and was virtually all organic sulfur; therefore, no sulfur reduction occurred during washing.« less
  • Twelve relatively short holes were drilled using a CSR (center sample return) drilling system to test the applicability of the drilling system and to test coal continuity in the vicinity of the present mine workings of the Jarvis Creek coalfield. Coal intersections plus geologic evidence indicate depositional continuity over fairly large distances. The CSR drilling system offers an excellent method for determining coal continuity and a system in which a fair (but not quite as good as core) sample may be obtained. (Author) (GRA)
  • The Department of Energy, in cooperation with the IEEE Neural Networks Council, Naval Research Laboratory, Electric Power Research Institute, and US Bureau of Mines, sponsored the Adaptive Control Systems Technology Symposium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from October 24 to 25, 1994. The theme of the Symposium was High-Tech Controls for Energy and Environment. This extraordinary gathering was designed to bring together individuals from the control systems and computational intelligence communities to focus attention on potential benefits to be derived from the application of adaptive controls to energy and environmental systems. Leading authorities from industry, academic, and government institutions presented tutorial overviewsmore » on each of three computational intelligence paradigms -- viz., neural networks, fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms -- identified useful hybrid forms, and introduced intelligent and adaptive control systems concepts and applications. There were also papers presented that focussed on specific applications of intelligent control and adaptive control in energy and environmental control systems. Individual papers have been cataloged separately.« less
