Reorganized for easy use, "Reservoir Engineering Handbook, Fourth Edition" provides an up-to-date reference to the tools, techniques, and science for predicting oil reservoir performance even in the most difficult fields. Topics covered in the handbook include: processes to enhance production; well modification to maximize oil and gas recovery; and, completion and evaluation of wells, well testing, and well surveys. "Reservoir Engineering Handbook, Fourth Edition" provides solid information and insight for engineers and students alike on maximizing production from a field in order to obtain the best possible economic return. With this handbook, professionals will find a valuable reference for understanding the key relationships among the different operating variables. Examples contained in this reference demonstrate the performance of processes under forceful conditions through a wide variety of applications. It is fundamental for the advancement of reservoir engineering concepts. It features step-by-step field performance calculations.
It offers: easy to understand analysis of oil recovery mechanisms; step-by-step analysis of oil recovery mechanisms; and, new chapter on fractured reservoirs.
