Petroleum Engineering: Principles, Calculations and Workflows

Résumé :

A comprehensive and practical guide to methods for solving complex petroleum engineering problems

Petroleum engineering is guided by overarching scientific and mathematical principles, but there is sometimes a gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application. Petroleum Engineering: Principles, Calculations and Workflows presents methods for solving a wide range of real-world petroleum engineering problems. Each chapter deals with a specific issue, and includes formulae that help explain primary principles of the problem before providing an easy to follow, practical application.

Volume highlights include:

-A robust, integrated approach to solving inverse problems

-In-depth exploration of workflows with model and parameter validation

-Simple approaches to solving complex mathematical problems

-Complex calculations that can be easily implemented with simple methods

-Overview of key approaches required for software and application development

-Formulae and model guidance for diagnosis, initial modeling of parameters, and simulation and regression

Petroleum Engineering: Principles, Calculations and Workflows is a valuable and practical resource to a wide community of geoscientists, earth scientists, exploration geologists, and engineers. This accessible guide is also well-suited for graduate and postgraduate students, consultants, software developers, and professionals as an authoritative reference for day-to-day petroleum engineering problem solving.

Table des matières :

The book would consist of 6 Sections broken into a total of 14 chapters, with each chapter dealing with a specific petroleum engineering problem/topic. Each chapter will begin with an overview of the petroleum engineering problem/topic and objective of the chapter followed by important formulae explaining the principles of the petroleum engineering problem/method. Sample calculations with steps which are components of a larger workflow would be covered in details. These sample calculations will then evolve to application of principles and calculations in workflows that would give robust solutions to problem defined in the chapter and section.
