Working Guide to Petroleum and Natural Gas Production Engineeringby William C. Lyons
Synopses & Reviews
The petroleum and natural gas engineer must know and be capable of applying both conventional engineering design principles as well as those pertaining specifically to the field of petroleum and natural gas engineering. Working Guide to Petroleum and Natural Gas Production Engineering covers petroleum and natural gas handling from the production field to process plant operations, helping engineers to achieve marketable products that meet desired product specifications. In this book, emphasis is placed on production system analysis, production optimization, equipment design, surface facilities design and project.
Based on the classic Standard Handbook of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering, Second Edition, the Working Guide starts with an extensive overview of the basic principles, definitions, and data. Later chapters cover properties of hydrocarbon mixtures, flow natural flow of fluids, natural flow performance, artificial lift methods and corrosion and scaling. This book provides engineers with a bases for understanding important concepts such a flow phenomena, hydrate formation, pressure (surge) waves, or high viscosity liquid flow failure. The focus of book is to assist the reader to understand and avoid potential operational challenges and design effective solutions and operational responses.
