Analysis of Fracturing Pressure Data in Heterogeneous Shale Formations
(hydraulic Fracturing Journal, 2014-04)
Existing techniques for the interpretation of real-time fracturing data assumes that fracture propagation is a continuous power function of time, and that fractures propagate smoothly over time. This assumption implies ...
Shale Gas Plays Screening Criteria “A Sweet Spot Evaluation Methodology
(Prepared to submitted to Fracturing Impacts and Technologies Conference, 2014-09)
This work introduces a new approach developed for shale gas plays screening criteria. The proposed algorithm takes into consideration thickness, depth, TOC, maturity, brittleness, mineral composition, total porosity, net ...
Technology Screens Shale Play Criteria
(American Oil and Gas Reporter, 2015-04)
Fracturability Index for Optimal Well Placement and Fracture Positioning
(Hydraulic Fracturing Journal, 2014-09)
The early detection of "sweet spots" for oil/gas well site selection and fracturing in shale reservoirs is a challenge for many operators. Most of the time, unique parameters are utilized (i.e. brittleness) to determine ...
ERα Mediates Estrogen-Induced Expression of the Breast Cancer Metastasis Suppressor Gene BRMS1
Recently, estrogen has been reported as putatively inhibiting cancer cell invasion and motility. This information is in direct contrast to the paradigm of estrogen as a tumor promoter. However, data suggests that the effects ...
Book Raider: Connecting Patrons of Texas Tech University Libraries with Resources Anytime, Anywhere
(Collaborative Librarianship Open Journal Systems 220.127.116.11, 2016-03-01)
Given the mandate of Texas Tech University to expand its research mission, Texas Tech University Libraries developed new library services through the Book Raider project that allows patrons to use mobile apps to check ...
Perspectives on preservation strategies for digital content: Lessons learned
This panel will discuss Texas Tech University Digital Library’s experiences with preservation in the past eight years including failures and near-misses that caused TTU to seek a better system. This all-encompassing system ...
Streaming Audio & Video Experience (SAVE): A Solution to Publish Music-related ETDs
The current literature of electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) has frequently discussed issues regarding ETD collaborations, discovery, metadata, system improvement, and long-term preservation strategies. However, ...
Automating Digital Collection Processes
Processing digital collections is tedious and time consuming. It is also susceptible to human error. Although it is impossible to automate all digital collection creation processes, at the Texas Tech University Libraries, ...
REDDNET AND DIGITAL PRESERVATION IN THE OPEN CLOUD: RESEARCH AT TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES ON LONG-TERM ARCHIVAL STORAGE
(Journal of Digital Information, 2012-01-15)
In the realm of digital data, vendor-supplied cloud systems will still leave the user with responsibility for curation of digital data. Some of the very tasks users thought they were delegating to the cloud vendor may be ...
