CHEMICAL METHODS OF ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY USING ALKALI FLOODING

The purpose of EOR is to increase oil production, primarily through an increase in temperature, pressure, or an enhancement of the oil’s ability to flow through the reservoir. This study focuses on which chemicals available to flow through the reservoir. This study focuses on which chemicals available in Nigeria are best suited for EOR in Nigeria. The challenge of EOR is that the remaining is located in regions of the reservoir that are difficult to access, and the oil is held in the pores ...

RHEOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF NEEM BIODIESEL AND BIODIESEL/PETRODISEL BLEND

ABSTRACTEffect of temperature on viscosity and density changes on neem biodiesel and neem biodiesel-blend has been investigated.  Neem oil was sourced from neem (Azadirachta indica) seed, which was extracted using soxhlet apparatus and was converted to biodiesel using transterification method. The fuel properties of the resultant biodiesel such as viscosity, density, cetane number, cloud and pour points, flash point, were measured. At varying temperature range of 25-100OC, changes in vis...

DEMERIT AND MERIT OF DEREGULATING THE DOWNSTREAM SECTOR OF THE OIL AND GAS SECTOR IN NIGERIA

ABSTRACTDeregulation is the removal or simplification of government rules and regulations that constrain the operation of market force. In course of  studying the effect of deregulation, various economic model will be applied  to data gotten from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation NNPC for efficient and workable economic policy that will bring a sustainable development to both the sector and the country as a whole. This work analyzes the various implications removal of subs...

Digital Signal Processor (DSP)

This is a paper about generating sequences with matlabA digital signal processor (DSP) is a specialized microprocessor (or a SIP block), with its architecture optimized for the operational needs of digital signal processing. The goal of DSPs is usually to measure, filter and/or compress continuous real-world analog signals.1.1 Generation of Discrete Time SequencesProject 1.1: Delayed Unit Sample SequenceA unit sample sequence is a sequence that has a value of one (1) at n=0, and a value of ze...

THE USE OF LOCAL PIGMENTS AND EXTENDERS FOR FORMULATION & PRODUCTION OF EMULSION PAINT

ABSTRACTThe major aim of this project research work is to produce emulsion paint from locally sourced pigment & extenders.The materials used for the production was of local source.The major raw materials used for the production of the emulsion paint: water, titanium iv oxide, calcium carbonate, kaoline, calgon, natrosol, biocide P.V.A, ammonia, deformer (Ginap) kerosene, yellow iron oxide and red iron oxide.Emulsion paint of two (2) samples was produced, and calcium carbonate locally obta...

DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF SIMPLE SCIENTIFIC CALCULATOR.

ABSTRACTThis work was centered on the Design and implementation of a simple scientific calculator for education organization. The  study traced calculator system as a tool to completely change mathematical knowledge and sophisticated problems solving strategies had advanced the field of simulated engine in mathematic. This project work also focused principally on  numbers and arithmetic operation. This researcher investigated the manual system in detail with a view to finding out ...

Fabrication of a Portable Camp Bed

ABSTRACTIn this project, three (3) alternative design solutions were considered for the camp-bed.  The authors utilize the local raw materials (with cost consideration) for the comments.  The merits and demerits of each of the alternative with respect to the considered grip were also discussed and the solutions of the alternatives that best satisfied the limitations were selection, design and cost analysis, production process and operations maintenance and problem encountered during...

POWER AMPLIFIER34

INTRODUCTIONPower amplifier is an electronic device, which is used to increase sound energy.  In other words, the final stage which must driven a given load e.g mechanical indicator, a loudspeaker cathode roy tade, magnetic deflection coil, a transmitting accrual of a communication network.  Power amplifier is also used in regulation power supplies, chopper amplifier, motor controller etc.  In general the load will by its nature, demand a certain power from the amplifier and th...

CONSTRUCTION OF A STANDARD DRAWING DESK

ABSTRACTThis project is a fabrication of a standard drawing writing desk using the cheapest, effective and most readily available materials. Method of maintenance and services were also taken into consideration. The functional aspect of the equipment was also given adequate consideration in the project work. Also take into consideration the reliability, portability and general values, appearance of the equipment. A material used for the construction was of best quality, which have excellen...

Comparative Study Of The Performances Of Chemically And Microwave-Synthesized Activated Carbon From Corn Cob

OBJECTIVE OF THE RESEARCHThe aim of this research project is to determine and compare the performance of chemically and microwave synthesized activated carbon from corn cob.INTRODUCTIONActivated carbon, also widely known as activated charcoal or activated coal is a form of carbon which has been processed to make it extremely porous and thus to have a very large surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions (Mattson et al., 1971). The word active is sometimes used in place of act...

THE FABRICATION FOR A SET OF SIEVES AND SAKER

ABSRACT The fabrication of a set of sieves and shaker was carried out in paliton workshop, Enugu. After a thorough analysis on the suitable materials to be used in fabrication, galvanized steel was chosen due to its advantages over materials of fabrication. The fabrication was carried out in order to analyze the sizes of particles. The component parts of the sets of sieve and their dimensions are as follows:Height of sieve 5.5cmNumber of sieves 7Diameter of sieve 13.5cmShape of sieve circular...

A GSM BASED HOME AUTOMATION USING AVR

ABSTRACTWith advancement of technology things are becoming simpler and easier for us. Automatic systems are being preferred over manual system. The purpose of this project is to design and construct A GSM based home automation using AVR. Using GSM networks, in this project a home power control system has been proposed that will act as an embedded system which can monitor and control appliances and other devices locally using built-in input and output peripherals. The system has a delay of 2 m...
