Petroleum production engineering a computer assisted approach

Petroleum Production Engineering, A Computer-Assisted Approach gives handy guidelines to designing, analyzing and also optimizing petroleum production systems. Broken into 4 parts, this book covers the complete scope of petroleum production engineering, featuring stepwise calculations and also computer-based spreadsheet programs. Part one contains discussions of petroleum manufacturing engineering fundamentals, empirical models for manufacturing decline evaluation, and the performance of oil and organic gas wells. Part 2 presents principles of designing and also selecting the primary components of petroleum manufacturing units including: well tubing, separation and also dehydration devices, liquid pumps, gas compressors, and also pipelines for oil and gas transportation. Part three introduces man-made lift approaches, consisting of sucker rod pumping devices, gas lift technology, electrical submersible pumps and also various other man-made lift devices. Part 4 is comprised of production improvement techniques including, identifying well problems, creating acidizing jobs, guidelines to hydraulic fracturing and task review techniques, and also production optimization approaches.Provides finish coverage of the latest methods offered for developing and analyzing petroleum production systemsIncreases efficiency and addresses prevalent difficulties by utilizing the computer-based services debated within the bookPresents ethics of making and also picking the major components of petroleum manufacturing systems
