Petroleum Engineer’s Guide to Oil Field Chemicals and Fluids by Johannes Fink provides users with information on oil field chemicals such as drilling muds, corrosion Inhibitors gelling agents, scale Inhibitors and bacteria control.
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) August 01, 2011
According to Elsevier’s Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering a novel approach to perform regional scale simulations for a group of Gulf of Mexico reservoirs has been performed. The main objective of such an effort has been to integrate reservoirs with a potential dynamic communication through a single sensible initialization model in the simulator. Gulf Professional Publishing, an imprint of Elsevier Science & Technology Books, drills deeper into related research to provide up-to-the-minute research for those in the petroleum industry.
Petroleum Engineer’s Guide to Oil Field Chemicals and Fluids by Johannes Fink provides users with information on oil field chemicals such as drilling muds, corrosion Inhibitors gelling agents, scale Inhibitors and bacteria control. Each chapter follows the same template. In the introductory comments of each chapter a brief introduction to the chemical or polymer type is given and earlier monographs and reviews dealing with the topic are listed for quick reference. The text continues with monomers, polymerization and fabrication techniques and discusses aspects of application. After this, suppliers and commercial grades are collected, as well as safety aspects.
Petroleum Rock Mechanics by Bernt Aadnøy & Mohammad Reza Looyeh starts with a clear and rigorous exposition of theory, followed by self-contained chapters concerning applications for understanding the stress, strain, and failure mechanics of rocks and their response to earth stresses. The role of rock mechanics in drilling operations and design are highlighted throughout. Details of practical in-situ stress changes and how they impact on wellbore and borehole behavior are also included, making this the one of most unique books on the subject.
Pipeline Planning and Construction Field Manual by E. Shashi Menon is packed with easy to read and understand tables, pipeline schematics, bullet lists and "what to do next" checklists. This easy to use book covers the design, construction, and operation of onshore pipeline systems. The incorporate construction methods, commissioning, pressure testing, and start up into the design of a pipeline system. The focus is on pipeline routing, mechanical design, construction methods, hydraulics, installation, and operations of onshore pipeline systems.
Applied Drilling Circulation Systems by Boyun Guo, PhD & Gefei Liu. The only book which combines system modeling, design, and equipment, Applied Drilling Circulation Systems: Hydraulics, Calculations and Models provides a clear and rigorous exposition of traditional and non-traditional circulation systems and equipment followed by self contained chapters concerning system modeling applications. Theories are illustrated by case studies based on the author’s real life experience.
