Investigation Of Limestone Formation Damage Kireçtaşi Formasyon Hasarinin İncelenmesi

Baǧci, Suat
Kök, Mustafa Verşan
The laboratory studies undertaken to evaluate and understand formation damage in limestone reservoirs were summarized. The influence of brine composition, salinity of alkaline fluid and injection rate on formation damage were evaluated in unconsolidated cores. In limestone formations, formation water, which was used in injection, and artificially prepared brine in various concentrations, caused the permeability reduction. High pH values in produced water caused the permeability reduction and consequently the pores were plugged and formation damage was observed. The permeability reduction in alkaline flooding experiments was observed as a result of high pH alkaline fluids (NaOH, NaSiO4). The permeability reduction was minimized using brines of NaCl, CaCl2, and KCl mixtures and high oil recoveries were obtained. Suspended solid particles were released and moved with injection water when salt concentration drops below the critical salt concentration, causing the permeability reduction and formation damage. Experiments below the critical salt concentrations, resulted in a reduction in permeability values of unconsolidated limestone samples, whereas, high pH value solutions caused a reduction in permeability values, plugged the pores, and resulted in formation damage.

Investigation of blast induced ground vibration and air blast around Uşak Kışladağ gold mine
Tanrıseven, Esra Nur; Bilgin, Hasan Aydın; Department of Mining Engineering (2018)
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of blasting operations conducted in Kışladağ Open Pit Gold Mine on surrounding villages in terms of ground vibration and air shock in the light of commonly used regulations. Moreover, it is aimed to give site specific propagation laws for future blasts and to determine safe explosive amounts that can be blasted at the same time not to exceed safe ground vibration limits in the villages. Kışladağ Gold Mine is located in the middle of three settlements; G...
Determination of ambient levels and sources of volatile organic compounds in İzmir-Aliağa Region
Doğan, Güray; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal; Department of Environmental Engineering (2013)
In this study, atmospheric levels and sources of VOCs at Aliağa industrial area was investigated. For this, VOC concentrations were measured at two monitoring stations through winter and summer campaigns in 2005 and 2006. Sampling stations were located in downtown Aliağa and downwind of industrial facilities, approximately 500 m to the south east of Horozgediği village. After the summer sampling, another temporary station was installed in between PETKİM and TÜPRAŞ, named as TÜPRAŞ Station to generate TÜPRAŞ...
Development of a subsidence model for Çayırhan coal mine
Hacıosmanoğlu, M. Esenay; Ünal, Erdal; Department of Mining Engineering (2004)
In this study, subsidence analyses were carried out for panels B14, B12, B10, B02, C12, C10, C08 of Çayirhan Lignite Mine using in-situ subsidence measurements. Using the measurements from stations, installed both parallel and perpendicular to panel-advance direction, subsidence profiles were plotted as a function of time and distance from panel center. Horizontal displacement and strain curves were also plotted and compared with subsidence profiles. There are various methods used for subsidence prediction....
Risk-based reservoir operation under drought conditions
Türkeri, Mustafa Kemal; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
This study introduces a practical drought risk assessment methodology for reservoirs and hydraulic structures, which can be used in basin drought risk management. Reservoir operation study is used as a main tool in the risk assessment methodology. The methodology developed in this study contains a probabilistic deficiency analysis approach for reservoir inflows. Different scenarios are developed which include hydrological deficiencies for various return periods. Developed scenarios are also modified for cli...
On time analysis of archaeological residues by using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy(LIBS)
Küçükkeskin, Efe; Yedierler, Burak; Eseller, Kemal Efe; Department of Physics (2016)
In this study, Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) was applied to the archaeological rock samples. The main aim of this study is to find out the LIBS spectra of these rock samples and analyze them qualitatively and quantitatively. It was determined as a result of the qualitative analyses that the elements Mg (I) (517 nm), Sr (II) (421 nm) and Cr (I) (428 nm) exist in the archaeological materials. This information was proved not only with the related software program but also comparing our results wi...
