The Kuqa depression located in northern Tarim Basin is the second largest natural-gas field in China, however, drilling engineering is faced with extremely complex geological conditions, such as complex structural movement history, complex formation conditions (huge thick gypsum salt rock, and different thickness of alternating sand/shale sequences and conglomerate), abnormal high pore pressure systems and strong anisotropy in situ stress. These complex geologic conditions result in sev…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
