    1210 Words  | 5 Pages

    Biopolymers are polymers (large molecules, consisting of many repeated subunits) produced by living organisms also known as organic polymers. An example of this is starch, which by chance is one of the most commonly used raw materials in creating Polylactic acid. DNA and RNA are both examples of Biopolymers that have been constructed from nucleotides. Polylactic Acid Polylactic acid is a biodegradable thermoplastic deprived from renewable sources such as cornstarch and sugarcane There are several

    know about t he geological subsurface structures and where we can found hydrocarbons, if our geophysicist are not skilled enough to perform seismic and gravity surface, how could we able to map the horizons and how could we get to know that where we should drill or where we should not drill. If our drillers are not much experienced in their profession, the situation will be like that we are not drilling to produce hydrocarbons, we would be drilling to throw our money in that hole. If our production

  • The Effect Of Faults On Oil Migration Essay

    1873 Words  | 8 Pages

    The Effect of Faults on Oil Migration Wentao Zhang Missouri University of Science and Technology Abstract Faults play important roles in oil migration and accumulation. Faults can not only promote oil migration, but also trap and accumulate oil. This paper explores some methods to find out a fault and confirm it is opened or closed. Zhang, C., Xie, X.N., Jiang, T., Liu, X.F. (2005) fou-nd out the properties of faults in the BZ25-1 oilfield of Bohai basin by using some geophysics and geochemistry
