Integrated Reservoir Asset Management: Principles and Best Practices Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All too often, senior reservoir managers have found that their junior staff lack an adequate understanding of reservoir management techniques and best practices needed to optimize the development of oil and gas fields. Written by an expert professional/educator, Integrated Reservoir Asset Management introduces the reader to the processes and modeling paradigms needed to develop the skills to increase reservoir output and profitability and decrease guesswork. One of the only references to recognize the technical diversity of modern reservoir management teams, Fanchi seamlessly brings together concepts and terminology, creating an interdisciplinary approach for solving everyday problems. The book starts with an overview of reservoir management, fluids, geological principles used to characterization, and two key reservoir parameters (porosity and permeability). This is followed by an uncomplicated review of multi-phase fluid flow equations, an overview of the reservoir flow modeling process and fluid displacement concepts. All exercises and case studies are based on the authors 30 years of experience and appear at the conclusion of each chapter with hints in addition of full solutions. In addition, the book will be accompanied by a website featuring supplementary case studies and modeling exercises which is supported by an author generated computer program. Straightforward methods for characterizing subsurface environments Effortlessly gain and understanding of rock-fluid interaction relationships An uncomplicated overview of both engineering and scientific processes Exercises at the end of each chapter to demonstrate correct application Modeling tools and additional exercise are included on a companion website.

Synopsis:

Master the techniques and best practices that will lead to better reservoir engineering and management decisions.

Technically diverse and easy to understand, this book expertly links concepts and terminology to create an interdisciplinary approach for solving everyday reservoir engineering problems. It begins with an overview of reservoir management, including geophysics, geology, and petrophysics. Methods- and applications-oriented chapters provide guidance for assessment of subsurface environments, formulation of multi-phase fluid equations, and understanding of modern fluid displacement concepts.

All exercises and case studies are based on the author's 30 years of experience and appear at the conclusion of each chapter with hints; full solutions can be found on the companion website. In addition, the website features supplementary case studies and modeling exercises supported by an author-generated computer program. With this book, professionals have a versatile reference that can be readily used as a quick resource or as a guide for self-study.
