  • This task was initiated at the Medical Research and Evaluation Facility to develop a protocol for advanced screening of candidate barrier compounds for protection from nerve agents using a quantifiable nonlethal end point as a measure of effectiveness. Soman (GD), thickened GD (TGD), and VX were used to generate a family of curves for erythrocyte (RBC) acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibition as a function these data, a single dose was selected for each agent to challenge barrier-protected and unprotected animals. Blood samples were drawn at three times after exposure from each group of agent-challenged animals to validate the model by comparing AChEmore » depression and rate of inhibition in unprotected and barrier-protected animals.

  • The Tensleep Sandstone and Madison carbonate reservoirs at Wertz and Lost Soldier fields, southern Wyoming, were the subject of a fracture distribution study as part of a tertiary development study. A fracture classification scheme for the reservoirs was developed, and foot-by-foot fracture description of 15 cores throughout the two fields were generated. The core fracture classifications and descriptions were digitized for computer use. A computer-generated second-derivative map of the Tensleep structure accurately reflected fracture distribution as described from cores in both the sandstone and carbonate reservoirs. Computer-generated crossplots of number of fractures per foot versus a variety of petrophysical rockmore » parameters identified structural position and lithology as the key factors governing fracture distribution and intensity in the Tensleep and Madison reservoirs.« less
  • Lost Soldier field (T26N, R90W) is one of several fields that parallel the Granite Mountains uplift. The subsurface structure at the Lakota level is a northwest-trending, doubly plunging anticline. The Lakota Formation at Lost Soldier field is a complex, fluvial-sand sequence, representing braided- and meandering-stream environments. Lakota channels have both podlike and sheetlike geometries, and grade laterally into crevasse splay and floodplain deposits. The Lakota reservoir was discovered in 1922. Between 1922 and the early 1950s, the reservoir produced about 5 million bbl of oil. The early Lakota wells were drilled mainly on the top of the structure and alongmore » lease lines. These early wells were all shut-in by the early 1950s when the Lakota reservoir, thought to be depleted, was abandoned. During the late 1970s, following Amoco's purchase of Lost Soldier field, Amoco geologists noticed high-resistivity anomalies in the Lakota Formation. In 1979 a well was recompleted in the Lakota with an IP of 65 BOPD and 22 BWPD. The successful recompletion proved that the early Lakota producers had not completely drained the reservoir. Since 1979 Amoco has completed or recompleted 22 Lakota producers. These wells have been drilled to define the oil-water contact for the Lakota, to develop a thick net-sandstone trend on the southern end of the structure, and to test the Lakota production potential in other parts of the field. It is estimated that the recent Lakota wells will produce about 1 million bbl of oil. The average IP for the wells is 67 BOPD and 104 BWPD.« less

The Schlumberger long-spaced sonic composite fracture identification log (CFIL) was compared to the quantitative core fracture descriptions. Once calibrated to core data, the CFIL showed excellent agreement with the foot-by-foot core fracture descriptions in both the Tensleep and Madison reservoirs, and can be used to identify field-wide variations in fracture distribution.« less
  • A combined heat and power-configured microturbine system was evaluated as an alternative to grid-supplied electric power. While off-grid, the system provides auxiliary power for gas-fired boilers and a portion of the domestic hot water for a 500-man barracks and kitchen. One-time tests were made of sound levels, stack emissions and power quality. Steady-state generating capacity dropped faster than the ratings as the inlet air temperature approached 15°C, while generating efficiency, based on fuel higher heating value, did not drop as rapidly and was still almost 21% at 33°C. The microturbine must boost the fuel (natural gas) delivery pressure to 55more » psig. During the one year of operation, four fuel compressors failed and there were repeated failures of the microturbine and heat recovery heat exchanger controls. Energy savings based on the measured performance and CY2003 utility rates were $2670 per year. This paper, which will be presented at the ASHRAE Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, Feb. 5-9, describes the results of this evaluation.« less
