Synopses & Reviews
Written by petroleum production engineers with extensive industrial as well as teaching experience, this is the only available advanced and comprehensive engineering textbook for petroleum reservoir and production engineering. Provides extensive coverage of well deliverability from oil, gas and two-phase reservoirs, wellbore flow performance, modern well test and production log analysis, matrix stimulation, hydraulic fracturing, artificial lift and environmental concerns. For advanced undergraduate and graduate students in petroleum engineering schools or professional courses, as well as for practicing petroleum engineers and technicians.
Providing comprehensive coverage of the key facets of petroleum production engineering, this volume synthesizes reservoir and well performance with an emphasis on wellbore flow considerations. Authors Michael J. Economides, A. Daniel Hill, and Christine Ehlig-Economides merge their individual areas of expertise to offer readers a cohesive examination of the field of petroleum production engineering.
