The Bowhead Whale and Offshore Petroleum Operations in the Arctic
Eskimos, environmentalist groups, and government agencies have stated their concerns about possible effects on the bowhead from offshore petroleum operations. These concerns fall into...

Bristol Bay Regional Planning: An Oil Industry Perspective
The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) specified the preparation of a Bristol Bay Cooperative Management Plan (BBCMP) - a joint effort of the State of Alaska and...

Mitigating Environmental Losses Through Project Planning
A significant amount of industry effort goes into project planning prior to preparation and submission of a permit application. Baseline studies are conducted, including preparation of...

Oil Platforms as Reefs: Oil and Fish CAN Mix
Offshore oil and gas production platforms function as excellent artificial reefs, providing a hard substrate for corals, bivalves and other sessile animals, as well as food and shelter...

Splitting Common-Pool Offshore Oil & Gas Revenues
The Department of Interior (DOI) and several coastal states are currently at odds over an issue with enormous financial stakes as well as far-reaching implications in federal/state relations....

Permitting for Oil and Gas Activities in the OCS Mukluk Island—Beaufort Sea, Alaska 1983
In Alaska so little land is in private ownership that the primary means for the oil industry to obtain rights for exploration and development is through State or Federal petroleum lease...

Geologic Review: A Successful Procedure for the Minimization of the Impact of Oil and Gas Exploration and Production on Louisiana Wetlands
An effective procedure to minimize the amount of wetlands impacted by oil and gas well access routes has been developed. The procedure consists of a stringent geologic review of every...

Project Mixes Oil and Water
The Prudhoe Bay Seawater Treatment Plant was nominated for an OCEA award, for its potential to coax from Alaska's north slope 1 billion barrels of oil which otherwise would...

A Ground Water Flow Model for Protection of the Northwest Well Field, Dade County, Florida
A new study was initiated to determine the appropriate cone of depression for the Northwest Well Field and to develop land use restrictions within that area. A finite-difference ground...

Interactive Computer Aided Graphic Water Well Pumping Test Evaluation Software
A microcomputer software package was developed which allows the user to interactively evaluate pumping tests using semilog and log-log graphic methods for time-drawdown, step-drawdown,...

Monitoring Well Inventory Using Database Development Software
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) is assisting the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation (FDER) in the establishment of a central repository for statewide hydrologic...

Fish Diversion in Hydropower Intake
Hydraulic model studies were conducted to develop a fish screening system to be used in the turbine intakes of Priest Rapids Development on the Columbia River, Washington. The system studied...

Three-Dimensional Simulation of Two-Fluid Movement in Porous Media Using the Boundary Element Method
The paper discusses three-dimensional problems that include a denser fluid overlain by water in an unconfined aquifer. The two fluid regions are bounded by two-dimensional surfaces, including...

Measurement of Hydraulic Conductivity Variation
For a confined, sandy aquifer, the dependence of the horizontal hydraulic conductivity on the vertical coordinate has been measured using single-well tracer injection/recovery experiments....

Littoral Environment Observation Program
This paper presents a method for determining the longitudinal, transverse, and vertical dispersivities of a thick aquifer for a free convection tracer test using only measurements from...

Heavy Oil Mining—An Overview
Heavy oil mining is a promising technology that may increase ultimate oil recovery from existing reservoirs from 35–40% to 90% of the original oil in place. If successful, mining for heavy...

New Plant Treats River and Well Water
A new 16 mgd water softening plant at Elgin, Ill. is designed to treat raw water either from the Fox River or deep wells, or in any combination. Flexibility of the chemical feed systems...

Cavitation in Various Types of Shear Flow
Cavitation in turbulent shear flow depends on the intensity and spectral characteristics of the pressure fluctuations in a Lagrangian frame of reference as well as depending on the concentration...

Decision Making in Establishing Instream Flow Needs in Minnesota
Allocation of water for instream use depends upon how well the need and justification for instream flows can be communicated to decision makers. The analysis and presentation of instream...

Mackenzie River Breakup: Ft. Simpson to Ft. Good Hope, N. W. T.
Breakup progression on the Mackenzie River in 1982 and 1983 is described. Two types of breakup, and two types of ice jam formation associated with these, were identified. The major role...
