Reservoir Engineering Handbook Book Excerpt:

Reservoir Engineering Handbook, Fifth Edition, equips engineers and students with the knowledge they require to continue maximizing reservoir assets, especially as more reservoirs become complex, more multilayered, and unconventional in their extraction method. Building on the solid reputation of the previous edition, this new volume presents critical concepts, such as fluid flow, rock properties, water and gas coning, and relative permeability in a straightforward manner. Water influx calculations, lab tests of reservoir fluids, oil and gas performance calculations, and other essential tools of the trade are also introduced, reflecting on today’s operations. New for this edition is an entire new chapter devoted to enhanced oil recovery techniques, including WAG. Critical new advances in areas such as well performance, waterflooding and an analysis of decline and type curves are also addressed, along with more information on the growing extraction from unconventional reservoirs. Practical and critical for new practicing reservoir engineers and petroleum engineering students, this book remains the authoritative handbook on modern reservoir engineering and its theory and practice. Highlights new content on unconventional reservoir activity, hydraulic fracturing, and a new chapter devoted to modern enhanced oil recovery methods and technologies Provides an everyday reference with ‘real world’ examples to help engineers grasp derivations and equations Presents the key fundamentals needed, including new information on rock properties, fluid behavior, and relative permeability concepts

Reservoir Engineering Handbook Book Excerpt:

This book is a reference book that appeared and became standard text and aims to provide student and teachers with a coherent account of the basic physics of reservoir engineering. The book has been most successfully achieved without any prior knowledge of reservoir engineering. The material is dealt with in a concise unifield and applied manner, and only the simplest and most straightforward mathematical techniques are used. The book is concise that will continue to be an invaluable teaching aid for years to come. This book served as a very deep and efficient reminder on issues that has been studies in field of upstream in petroleum economics and management course. The book outlines the techniques required for the basic analysis of reservoirs prior to simulation. It reviews rock and fluid properties, reservoir statics, determination of original oil and gas in place by volumetric and material balances, evaluation of drive mechanisms, fluid flow in porous media, aquifer influx, well testing, fluid distribution and displacement, and decline-curve analysis.

Equations of State and PVT Analysis Book Excerpt:

Understanding the properties of a reservoir’s fluids and creating a successful model based on lab data and calculation are required for every reservoir engineer in oil and gas today, and with reservoirs becoming more complex, engineers and managers are back to reinforcing the fundamentals. PVT (pressure-volume-temperature) reports are one way to achieve better parameters, and Equations of State and PVT Analysis, 2nd Edition, helps engineers to fine tune their reservoir problem-solving skills and achieve better modeling and maximum asset development. Designed for training sessions for new and existing engineers, Equations of State and PVT Analysis, 2nd Edition, will prepare reservoir engineers for complex hydrocarbon and natural gas systems with more sophisticated EOS models, correlations and examples from the hottest locations around the world such as the Gulf of Mexico, North Sea and China, and Q&A at the end of each chapter. Resources are maximized with this must-have reference. Improve with new material on practical applications, lab analysis, and real-world sampling from wells to gain better understanding of PVT properties for crude and natural gas Sharpen your reservoir models with added content on how to tune EOS parameters accurately Solve more unconventional problems with field examples on phase behavior characteristics of shale and heavy oil

Reservoir Engineering Handbook Book Excerpt:

The job of any reservoir engineer is to maximize production from a field to obtain the best economic return. To do this, the engineer must study the behavior and characteristics of a petroleum reservoir to determine the course of future development and production that will maximize the profit. Fluid flow, rock properties, water and gas coning, and relative permeability are only a few of the concepts that a reservoir engineer must understand to do the job right, and some of the tools of the trade are water influx calculations, lab tests of reservoir fluids, and oil and gas performance calculations.Two new chapters have been added to the first edition to make this book a complete resource for students and professionals in the petroleum industry: Principles of Waterflooding, Vapor-Liquid Phase Equilibria.

Practical Reservoir Engineering and Characterization Book Excerpt:

Practical Reservoir Characterization expertly explains key technologies, concepts, methods, and terminology in a way that allows readers in varying roles to appreciate the resulting interpretations and contribute to building reservoir characterization models that improve resource definition and recovery even in the most complex depositional environments. It is the perfect reference for senior reservoir engineers who want to increase their awareness of the latest in best practices, but is also ideal for team members who need to better understand their role in the characterization process. The text focuses on only the most critical areas, including modeling the reservoir unit, predicting well behavior, understanding past reservoir performance, and forecasting future reservoir performance. The text begins with an overview of the methods required for analyzing, characterizing, and developing real reservoirs, then explains the different methodologies and the types and sources of data required to characterize, forecast, and simulate a reservoir. Thoroughly explains the data gathering methods required to characterize, forecast, and simulate a reservoir Provides the fundamental background required to analyze, characterize, and develop real reservoirs in the most complex depositional environments Presents a step-by-step approach for building a one, two, or three-dimensional representation of all reservoir types

Upscaling of Single and Two Phase Flow in Reservoir Engineering Book Excerpt:

This book describes fundamental upscaling aspects of single-phase/two-phase porous media flow for application in petroleum and environmental engineering. Many standard texts have been written about this subject. What distinguishes this work from other available books is that it covers fundamental issues that are frequently ignored but are relevant for developing new directions to extend the traditional approach, but with an eye on application. Our dependence on fossil energy is 80–90% and is only slowly decreasing. Of the estimated 37 (~40) Gton/year, anthropogenic emissions of about 13 Gton/year of carbon dioxide remain in the atmosphere. An Exergy Return on Exergy Invested analysis shows how to obtain an unbiased quantification of the exergy budget and the carbon footprint. Thus, the intended audience of the book learns to quantify his method of optimization of recovery efficiencies supported by spreadsheet calculations. As to single-phase-one component fluid transport, it is shown how to deal with inertia, anisotropy, heterogeneity and slip. Upscaling requires numerical methods. The main application of transient flow is to find the reasons for reservoir impairment. The analysis benefits from solving the porous media flow equations using (numerical) Laplace transforms. The multiphase flow requires the definition of capillary pressure and relative permeabilities. When capillary forces dominate, we have dispersed (Buckley-Leverett flow). When gravity forces dominate, we obtain segregated flow (interface models). Miscible flow is described by a convection-dispersion equation. We give a simple proof that the dispersion coefficient can be approximated by Gelhar's relation, i.e., the product of the interstitial velocity, the variance of the logarithm of the permeability field and a correlation length. The book will appeal mostly to students and researchers of porous media flow in connection with environmental engineering and petroleum engineering.
