Bile acids (BA) are signaling molecules with a wide range of biological effects, also identified among the most responsive plasma metabolites in the postprandial state. We here describe this response to different dietary challenges and report on key determinants linked to its interindividual variability. Healthy men and women (n = 72, 62 ± 8 yr,...

Geothermal drilling environments are often hostile to well materials, especially in magmatic settings where properties of well casing and cements may rapidly change as a result of high temperatures and chemically active formation fluids. Prolonging the lifetime of such geothermal wells is one of the key challenges to achieve a commercially...

Large-scale CO2 injection in saline aquifers will cause pressure build-up in brine far beyond the extent of CO2 plume. In this paper, we evaluate the geomechanical responses of large-scale CO2 storage in the multilayer aquifer of the Kra Al-Maru Trend in Kuwait. The site was selected after screening the whole territory of Kuwait, identifying and...

The northern deep-waterGulf ofMexico is one of themost active deep-water petroleum provinces in the world. This paper introduces the regional geologic setting for the northern deep-water Gulf of Mexico and briefly discusses the importance of technology in developing the area's resources. Exploration has focused on four major geologic provinces:...

The predictive value of the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) on intention and physical activity (PA) over time was examined. Data from the Aging Well and Healthily intervention program (targeting perceived behavioral control and attitude, not subjective norm) were analyzed, including pretest (T0), posttest (T1, except subjective norm) and 4-6...

The Permian Rotliegend Slochteren Formation is a prolific gas bearing interval in the Netherlands. However, their reservoir porosity and permeability can be locally severely degraded by diagenetic pore-blocking cements. This work focusses on the cementational control on the reservoir quality. The drivers and causes of cementation and its effect...

We present an efficient workflow that combines multiscale (MS) forward simulation and stochastic gradient computation - MS-StoSAG - for the optimization of well controls applied to waterflooding under geological uncertainty. The Iterative Multiscale Finite Volume (i-MSFV), a mass conservative reservoir simulation strategy, is employed as the...

Fault slip surfaces and earthquake surface ruptures are not flat but show corrugations at all scales, also called roughness. These corrugations control the distribution of stress and strength on the fault plane and around. Here, we review the scaling properties of faults and earthquake slip roughness. Interestingly, both fault and earthquake...

This paper discusses the influence of hydraulic continuity of reservoirs and faults and the lack thereof on the occurrence of local pore fluid pressure conditions deviating from previously established regional trends. The hydrodynamic-based approaches will be illustrated with case studies from the Netherlands, in particular.

The structural framework and evolution from the Middle Jurassic to the present of the Mississippi Canyon, Atwater Valley, western DeSoto Canyon, and western Lloyd Ridge protraction areas consist of a complex history influenced by basement fabric, multiple stages of salt movement, and gravitational gliding. A detailed tectono-stratigraphic...

Pore pressure changes caused by the production of gas from reservoir rocks result in reservoir compaction, stress changes on faults, potential fault reactivation and related seismic activity. This seismic activity is expected to be affected by the amount of pressure change, the spatial distribution of the pressure changes relative to the...

A key objective in any reservoir development plan is to achieve maximum reservoir exploitation which is usually quantified using an economic objective such as net present value (NPV). A key element of such an optimized development plan is an optimized well planning scheme (number, placement and trajectories of the wells). In the well planning...

The 86 fields and discoveries in the central Mississippi Canyon, Atwater Valley, western DeSoto Canyon, and Lloyd Ridge protraction areas are summarized with production characteristics and representative seismic profiles and wire-line logs. Three trap styles are recognized: four-way closure, three-way closure, and stratigraphic. The reservoirs...

The structural history of the Mississippi Canyon, Atwater Valley, westernDeSoto, and western Lloyd Ridge protraction areas in the northeastern deep-water Gulf of Mexico is of a basin influenced by complex salt tectonics that controlled the formation of intraslope minibasins and sediment distribution. Large volumes of Middle Jurassic...

Piezoelectric composites made from soft and hard lead zirconium titanate (PZT) particles as filler and an epoxy as the matrix were prepared by dielectrophoresis and studied for their piezoelectric properties. It was found that the dielectric constant of the piezoelectric filler plays a significant role in determining the final piezoelectric...

We systematically reviewed papers published in English between 1994 and October 2015 on how postnatal weight gain and growth affects neurodevelopment and metabolic outcomes in term-born small for gestational age (SGA) infants. Two randomised trials reported that enriched infant formulas that promoted early growth also increased fat mass, lean...

A major concern for responders to hazardous materials (HazMat) incidents is the heat strain that is caused by fully encapsulated impermeable chemical protective suits. In a research project, funded by the US Department of Defense, the thermal strain experienced when wearing these suits was studied. One particular area of interest was the fluid...

Pressure maintenance by injection of nitrogen into a reservoir is one of the potential options to mitigate induced seismicity during gas production. It is expected that seismicity and the seismic hazard can be reduced by decreasing the stress changes and compaction associated with the declining pore pressure in the reservoir rocks. However,...

We develop a framework based on the lexicographic method and the newly developed Stochastic-Simplex-Approximate-Gradient (StoSAG) algorithm to maximize the expected net-present-value (NPV) and minimize the associated risk or uncertainty in robust life-cycle production optimization. With the lexicographic method, we first maximize the expectation...
