Working Guide to Petroleum and Natural Gas Production Engineering provides an introduction to key concepts and processes in oil and gas production engineering. It begins by describing correlation and procedures for predicting the physical properties of natural gas and oil. These include compressibility factor and phase behavior, field sampling process and laboratory measurements, and prediction of a vapor-liquid mixture. The book discusses the basic parameters of multiphase fluid flow, various flow regimes, and multiphase flow models. It explains the natural flow performance of oil, gas, and the mixture. The final chapter covers the design, use, function, operation, and maintenance of oil and gas production facilities; the design and construction of separators; and oil and gas separation and treatment systems.

This second volume of Surface Operations in Petroleum Production complements and amplifies Volume I which appeared in 1987 and covered several aspects of oilfield technology. This second volume presents a detailed theoretical and practical exposition of surface oilfield practices, including gas flow rate measurement, cementing, fracturing, acidizing, and gravel packing. In today's era of specialization, these operations are generally left to service companies, denying field engineers and company managers direct detailed knowledge of the specific surface and subsurface operations. This book presents a comprehensive analysis which may be used by field engineers to analyze technical problems, specify the required surface and subsurface operations, and closely supervise the service company's work and post-treatment operation of the well. Another subject which has great economic consequences in all oilfields is corrosion of equipment. The book presents a comprehensive analysis of the theory of corrosion in the oilfield and methods that have proved effective for the retardation, or elimination, of corrosion. Quality control of injection waters in then covered. Three more topics are addressed: the first is offshore technology which is presented with reference to onshore oilfield operations, making a lucid presentation for field engineers who have no practical knowledge of the subject. The second is pollution control - an area of oilfield management which has assumed widespread importance in recent years. The last topic covered is the subject of underground storage of gas and oil. Underground fuel storage and retrieval is an active area of oilfield production management that utilizes the technology presented in this entire treatise. Finally, the technology of testing petroleum products and sample experiments for junior and senior petroleum engineering students are presented. This two-volume comprehensive treatise on modern oilfield technology thus provides not only a complete reference for field managers, engineers, and technical consultants, but will also serve academic needs in advanced studies of petroleum production engineering.

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.

Once a natural gas or oil well is drilled, and it has been verified that commercially viable, it must be "completed" to allow for the flow of petroleum or natural gas out of the formation and up to the surface. This process includes: casing, pressure and temperature evaluation, and the proper instillation of equipment to ensure an efficient flow out of the well. In recent years, these processes have been greatly enhanced by new technologies. Advanced Well Completion Engineering summarizes and explains these advances while providing expert advice for deploying these new breakthrough engineering systems. The book has two themes: one, the idea of preventing damage, and preventing formation from drilling into an oil formation to putting the well introduction stage; and two, the utilization of nodal system analysis method, which optimizes the pressure distribution from reservoir to well head, and plays the sensitivity analysis to design the tubing diameters first and then the production casing size, so as to achieve whole system optimization. With this book, drilling and production engineers should be able to improve operational efficiency by applying the latest state of the art technology in all facets of well completion during development drilling-completion and work over operations. One of the only books devoted to the key technologies for all major aspects of advanced well completion activities. Unique coverage of all aspects of well completion activities based on 25 years in the exploration, production and completion industry. Matchless in-depth technical advice for achieving operational excellence with advance solutions.

A practical book for geologists involved in petroleum production, here is a comprehensive review of basic techniques in production geology, the links with related subjects, and the function of geologists in the planning and operation of all phases of oilfield development. The first part discusses the basic techniques used in the analysis and graphic representation of the stratigraphy, tectonic structure, reservoir sedimentology and hydrocarbon distribution of an oilfield. The second part describes how this knowledge is applied in the various phases of field development. The mutual support between production geology and neighbouring disciplines such as seismology, log interpretation, reservoir engineering is stressed. Throughout the book, the text is secondary to the illustrations; these are examples, mostly hypothetical, of conditions and techniques discussed, designed so as to bring out as clearly as possible the importance of the points made. It is thus an ideal book for graduate students, specializing in petroleum geology and for participants in post-graduate courses, in universities or within industry.

Der Erfolg und die Kosten einer Bohrung zum Zweck des Aufschlusses oder der Ausbeute einer Erdöl- bzw. Erdgaslagerstätte hängen nicht nur von der Qualität und Leistung der verfügbaren Bohranlage, sondern auch von der angewendeten Bohrtechnik ab, die den jeweils gegebenen lokalen Verhältnissen angepaßt werden muß. Der Bohrtechniker hat daher folgende Fragen zu ent scheiden: 1. Welche Arbeitsmethoden und Hilfsmittel sind am geeignetsten, um die Bohrung sicher und kostensparend auf die gewünschte Teufe abzustoßen? 2. Wie müssen die produktiven Horizonte durchbohrt und gesichert werden, um eine möglichst wirtschaftliche Ausbeute zu gewährleisten? Als Hilfsmittel zur Erfüllung der ihm gestellten Aufgaben standen dem Bohrtechniker bisher nur die in zahlreichen Fachzeitschriften laufend er scheinenden Veröffentlichungen zur Verfügung, in denen über die beim Ab teufen, Verrohren, Zementieren und bei den sonstigen bei einer Tiefbohrung vorkommenden Arbeiten gemachten Erfahrungen berichtet wird. Das vorliegende Buch will nun die einzelnen Teilgebiete zusammenfassend erläutern und damit ein Leitfaden für in der Praxis stehende Bohrtechniker und für Studierende sein, in dem die wichtigsten Probleme und heute an gewendeten Methoden prinzipiell besprochen werden. Auf diese Weise bildet es eine Ergänzung zu meinem 1957 erschienenen Buch "Tiefbohrgeräte" und gemeinsam mit diesem eine Übersicht über das Gesamtgebiet der Tiefbohrkunde. Selbstverständlich kann und will auch dieses Buch keinesfalls Anspruch darauf erheben, alle vorkommenden Verfahren und dazugehörigen Einrichtungen ohne Ausnahme vollständig zu behandeln.
