Testing geopressured geothermal reservoirs in existing wells. Saldana well No. 2, Zapata County, Texas. Volume I. Completion and testing. Final report

Description: The Saldana Well No. 2, approximately 35 miles Southeast of the city of Laredo, Texas, was the sixth successful test of a geopressured-geothermal aquifer under the DOE Wells of Opportunity Program. The well was tested through the annulus between 7-inch casing and 2-3/8 inch tubing. The interval tested was from 9745 to 9820 feet. The geological section was the 1st Hinnant Sand, an upper member of the Wilcox Group. Produced water was injected into the Saldana Well No. 1, which was also acquired from Riddle Oil Company and converted to a disposal well. A Miocene salt water sand was perforated from 3005 to 3100 feet for disposal. One pressure drawdown flow test and one pressure buildup test were conducted during a 10-day period. A total of 9328 barrels of water was produced. The highest sustained flow rate was 1950 BWPD.

Procedure for matching synfuel users with potential suppliers. Appendix B. Proposed and ongoing synthetic fuel production projects

Description: To assist the Department of Energy, Office of Fuels Conversion (OFC), in implementing the synthetic fuel exemption under the Powerplant and Industrial Fuel Use Act (FUA) of 1978, Resource Consulting Group, Inc. (RCG), has developed a procedure for matching prospective users and producers of synthetic fuel. The matching procedure, which involves a hierarchical screening process, is designed to assist OFC in: locating a supplier for a firm that wishes to obtain a synthetic fuel exemption; determining whether the fuel supplier proposed by a petitioner is technically and economically capable of meeting the petitioner's needs; and assisting the Synthetic Fuels Corporation or a synthetic fuel supplier in evaluating potential markets for synthetic fuel production. A data base is provided in this appendix on proposed and ongoing synthetic fuel production projects to be used in applying the screening procedure. The data base encompasses a total of 212 projects in the seven production technologies.

Responses to the low-level-radiation controversy

Description: Some data sets dealing with the hazards of low-level radiation are discussed. It is concluded that none of these reports, individually or collectively, changes appreciably or even significantly the evaluations of possible low-level radiation effects that have been made by several authoritative national and international groups.

Beam propagation in the frequency-converted subsystems of Nova and Novette

Description: An analysis of beam propagation for the frequency converted Nova/Novette systems is given and self-focusing effects are reviewed. It is shown that the nonlinear growth of beam modulation produced by self-focusing is proportional 1/2 exp B where B is the intensity dependent phase retardation (measured in radians) accumulated by the beam. This exponential growth of beam modulation in the baseline frequency conversion/focusing optical train limits the system performance for short pulse (tau < 2 ns), one third micron operation. One micron and one-half micron performance are limited more by the one micron drive available to frequency conversion KDP array than self-focusing.

Computer automation for chemistry instruments. Final report, February 1, 1980-January 31, 1981

Description: The work performed consisted of the following: (1) development of computer aided design software for polynomial filters and Butterworth-Chebychev filter design; (2) development of algorithms for resolving peaks in spectroscopic data; and (3) interaction with LLL personnel to develop a structure for automation of surface chemistry spectroscopy. Each work phase is discussed in detail.

Geotoxic materials in the surface environment

Description: The toxicology and natural occurrence of several recognized geotoxic elements including arsenic, cadmium, chromium, nickel, lead, selenium, uranium, and vanadium is reviewed. The behavior of these elements in the environment and in biological systems is examined. The properties of these eight toxic elements are summarized and presented in a toxicity matrix. The toxicity matrix identifies each of the elements in terms of average crustal abundance, average soil concentration, drinking water standards, irrigation water standards, daily human intake, aquatic toxicity, phytotoxicity, mammalian toxicity, human toxicity, and bioaccumulation factors for fish. Fish are the major aquatic environment contribution to the human diet and bioaccumulation in aquatic ecosystems has been demonstrated to be an important factor in the cycling of elements in aquatic ecosystems. The toxicity matrix is used as a first approximation to rank the geotoxicity of elements for the purpose of focusing future efforts. The ranking from highest to lowest toxicity with respect to the toxicity parameters being discussed is as follows: arsenic, cadmium, lead, selenium, chromium, vanadium, nickel, and uranium.

Study of the formation and effects of sigma phase in 21-6-9 stainless steel

Description: Work performed to date on the study of the formation and effects of sigma phase in 21-6-9 stainless steel is summarized in this report. Sigma phase was identified in forgings and as-rolled plate by color etching and microprobe analysis. In as-rolled plate sigma was found to start transforming from delta ferrite within 30 minutes at 1500/sup 0/F, with almost complete transformation after 24 hours at 1500/sup 0/F. The effect of sigma phase on room temperature mechanical properties was evaluated by tensile testing, Charpy impact testing, and impact shear testing. Sigma phase was found to severely reduce transverse ductility and longtudinal and transverse impact resistance. The greater the amount of sigma present, the greater was its effect on mechanical properties. Vendor contacts indicated that controlling delta ferrite to a minimum in the as-rolled plate is both possible and practical.

[News Clip: JPS Air Cond.]

Description: Video footage from the NBC 5/KXAS station in Fort Worth, Texas, to accompany a news story about the flooding of the basement of the John Peter Smith Hospital in Dallas, Texas. The flooding caused power outages around Ft. Worth. The water also damaged the hospitals back up generators resulting in two others being borrowed from Carswell Air Force Base. This story showed how they kept the hospital air conditioned during the power outages. This story was produced for the 5:00 P.M. news broadcast.

Plasmas in particle accelerators: the warm-beam equilibria

Description: For a complete set of equilibrium particle densities and temperature, the corresponding distribution functions including space charge effects are provided through solution of the inverse equilibrium problem. An accompanying orbit theory shows that the projected transverse rosette orbit can be analyzed into a circular rotation (drift) and a betatron-vortex gyration. In the presence of more general beam density profiles, the betatron vortex gyrations assume an elliptical rather than circular shape.

Uranium-series dating of pedogenic carbonates from the Livermore Valley, California

Description: A uranium-series dating technique has been applied to pedogenic carbonates from the Livermore Valley in California. The results from geomorphologically distinct Quaternary alluvial units are internally consistent and for one alluvial unit are corroborated by a concordant /sup 14/C age for an associated wood fragment. In appropriate situations, age dates for pedogenic carbonates derived using this technique may provide a time stratigraphy for alluvial units and hence provide some limits (minimum age) for last fault movement.
