    Abstract: In order to solve the problem of liquid loading, some water-produced gas wells use intermittent production mode to produce: shut in gas wells to restore energy during the closing phase, and open up to carry the liquid to surface by the high velocity gas during well opening phase, which is cost effective. However, some wells need frequent opening an... Show More

    Abstract: The selection of an optimum location for the installation of a Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant is very vital to its overall performance. Any selected location should suitably satisfy some favourable selection criteria such as high direct normal irradiance, high ambient temperature, lower wind speed, lower level of cloud cover and availability ...
