Title: Engaging local industry in the development of basic research infrastructure and instrumentation – The case of HIE-ISOLDE and ESS Scandinavia

Abstract

Two world-class research facilities, the European Spallation Source, ESS, and the light-source facility MAX-IV, are being built in southern Sweden. They will primarily, when completed, be used for research in the fields of material sciences, life sciences, medicine and pharmacology. Their construction and the operation and maintenance of them for many years will create new business opportunities for companies in Europe in general and in Sweden, Denmark and Norway in particular in many different sectors. A project, CATE, Cluster for Accelerator Technology, was set up with the aim to strengthen the skills of companies in the Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak region in Scandinavia in the field of accelerator technology such that they will become competitive and be able to take advantage of the potential of these two research facilities. CATE was strategically important and has helped to create partnerships between companies and new business opportunities in the region.

  • During the next three years (1994-1996), a major research and development is being funded by a consortium of four partner groups and the British Government`s Department of Trade and Industry (NERC/OSO) through the LINK Hydrocarbon Reservoirs Programme. The individual partner groups consist of the Geochem Group Limited, the Scottish Universities Research and Reactor Centre (SURRC), Glasgow University (Department of Geology) and British Gas plc. The major objective of the project is the development of a laser ablation laboratory for routine in-situ, stable isotope analysis on a wide range of diagenetic cement phases recorded in hydrocarbon reservoirs. These cements will includemore » carbonates, quartz, sulphides, sulphates and some clay phases. The laboratory facilities will include several different lasers, advanced microscopic imaging hardware, gas {open_quotes}clean-up{close_quotes} lines and several mass spectrometers. The analytical techniques will focus on the following isotope systematics {delta}{sup 34}S (sulphides/sulphates), {delta}{sup 13}C (dolomites/calcites/siderites), {delta}{sup 18}0 (silicates including clays and carbonates) and {delta}D (clay silicates). The successful development of such a facility for routine applications will be a major step in progress in isotope geochemistry in diagenesis, and significantly assist pore fluid modelling in reservoir formations. The financial investment required for the study was beyond the scope of any single organisation, and the project demonstrates the successful collaboration between university, service and exploration companies, and government funding bodies.« less
  • This paper presents a general approach to the structural links between urban technologies for water use and sustainable development in Mexico City. These links belong to the public domain and are sufficiently generalizable so as to be expanded and modified to suit other technologies in similar contexts. They offer a convenient backdrop against which to meaningfully address critical technological issues that affect the performance of urban settlements as well as their biophysical environments.
  • Using a dual approach of basic research and applied field-optimization studies, Bureau geoscientists are helping industry maximize the recovery of oil and gas in stratigraphically complex reservoirs. Basic research on reservoir architecture is supported by two industrial associates programs that are evaluating siliciclastic reservoirs (Characterization of Heterogeneity Style and Permeability Structure in a Sequence Stratigraphic Framework in Fluvial-Deltaic Reservoirs) and carbonate reservoirs (Characterization of Carbonate Reservoirs) by combining outcrop analogs of major reservoir types and subsurface reservoir studies. In these two programs, high-frequency sequence stratigraphic analysis--along with analyses of rock fabric, permeability structure, bounding surfaces, and reservoir stacking patterns-is beingmore » evaluated in order to simulate interwell heterogeneity and its effect on fluid flow. Results are transferred to more than 25 companies worldwide through workshops, field courses, mentor programs, reports, journal articles, preprints and data sets. Research results from oil and gas field-optimization studies in North America, South America, and Australia have combined play assessment, detailed sequence stratigraphic and depositional-system analyses, and reservoir characterization to strategically deploy technology and achieve reserve growth in fields that have been producing for as long as 50 years. Geocellullar modeling and three-dimensional visualization of geologic, petrophysical, and engineering data are critical to establishing accurate estimates of original oil in place and remaining mobile oil. Reservoir settings, including tide-dominated deltaic, shelf, fluvial, and lacustrine-delta depositional systems, have been targeted for new infield wells, recompletions, and step-out locations. Proven reserves of more than 450 million barrels of remaining mobile oil have been identified in one field optimization study.« less
  • S>By means of a histochemical method based principally on metachromasia, studies were made of the variation in the interstitial mucopolysaccharides of the skin (on which diffusion essentially depends) in animals irradiated locally with doses of 5000 to l5000 r during hibernation and when awake. In previous investigations, less pronounced diffusion of liquids injected into the skin was in fact observed in animals irradiated while hibernating. It was observed that the weakening of the metachromatic reaction is appreciably less marked in animals treated during hibernation and concluded that the direct effect of x rays was less intense during hibernation.
