Petroleum Production Engineering 2nd Ed.
Preface to Petroleum Production Engineering
The advances in digital computing know-how within the final 20 years have revolutionized the petroleum business.
Utilizing fashionable laptop applied sciences, immediately’s petroleum manufacturing engineers work far more effectively than ever earlier than of their each day actions, together with analyzing and optimizing the efficiency of their current manufacturing methods and designing new manufacturing methods.
Throughout a number of years of instructing the manufacturing engineering programs in academia and within the business, the authors realized that there’s a want for a textbook that displays the present observe of what the fashionable manufacturing engineers do.
At the moment obtainable books fail to offer ample details about how the engineering rules are utilized to fixing petroleum manufacturing engineering issues with fashionable laptop applied sciences. These info motivated the authors to write down the second version of this e-book.
Along with updating supplies within the chapters within the first version of the e-book, the second version was accomplished by including new chapters primarily in two areas: (1) the productiveness of oil and gasoline wells with fashionable completion strategies equivalent to multi-fractured horizontal wells and multi-lateral wells (2) circulate assurance.
This e-book is written primarily for manufacturing engineers and faculty college students of the senior degree in addition to the graduate degree. It’s not the authors’ intention to easily duplicate normal data that may be discovered from different books.
This e-book gathers authors’ experiences gained by way of years of instructing programs of petroleum manufacturing engineering in universities and within the petroleum business.
The mission of the e-book is to offer manufacturing engineers a helpful guideline for designing, analyzing, and optimizing petroleum manufacturing methods.
The unique manuscript of this e-book has been used as a textbook for faculty college students of undergraduate and graduate ranges in Petroleum Engineering. This e-book was supposed to cowl the complete scope of petroleum manufacturing engineering.
Following the sequence of the oil and gasoline manufacturing course of, this e-book presents its contents in eighteen chapters lined in 5 components.
Half I comprises chapters overlaying petroleum manufacturing engineering fundamentals as the primary course for the entry-level manufacturing engineers and undergraduate college students.
Half II consists of chapters presenting rules and guidelines of designing and choosing floor and downhole gear. These chapters are additionally written for entry-level manufacturing engineers and undergraduate college students.
Half III consists of three chapters introducing nicely stimulation and workover because the second course for the entry-level manufacturing engineers and undergraduate college students. Half IV consists of chapters addressing synthetic carry strategies.
They’re designed for manufacturing engineers with some expertise, and for graduate college students. Half V is ready for manufacturing and pipeline engineers specializing in circulate assurance. For the reason that substance of this e-book is nearly boundless in-depth, figuring out what to omit was the best issue with its enhancing.
The authors imagine that it requires many books to explain the muse of information in petroleum manufacturing engineering.
To counter any deficiency which may come up from the restrictions of house, the e-book gives a reference checklist of books and papers on the finish of every chapter in order that readers ought to expertise little issue in pursuing every subject past the offered scope.
Concerning presentation, this e-book focuses on presenting and illustrating engineering rules used for designing and analyzing petroleum manufacturing methods reasonably than in-depth theories.
Derivation of mathematical fashions is past the scope of this e-book, aside from some particular subjects. Purposes of the rules are illustrated by fixing instance issues.
Whereas the options to some easy issues not involving iterative procedures are demonstrated with stepwise calculations, sophisticated issues are solved with laptop spreadsheet packages. The packages might be downloaded from the writer’s web site (https://www.elsevier.com/books-and-journals/ book-companion/9780128093740).
The mixture of the e-book and the pc packages gives an ideal device equipment to petroleum manufacturing engineers for performing their each day work in a most effective method.
All the pc packages have been written in spreadsheet kind in MS Excel that’s obtainable in most laptop platforms within the petroleum business.
These spreadsheets are correct and really simple to make use of. Though the U.S. subject models are used within the companion e-book, choices of utilizing U.S. subject models and SI models are supplied within the spreadsheet packages.
This e-book is predicated on quite a few paperwork together with stories and papers gathered by way of years of labor on the College of Louisiana at Lafayette, a serious power producer, and a serious service firm within the oil and gasoline business.
The authors are grateful to the college for permissions of publishing the supplies. Contributions of Dr. Shanhong Track in Circulation Assurance is acknowledged.
Particular thanks go to the Chevron Company for offering Chevron Professorships in Petroleum Engineering all through the enhancing of this e-book.
On the premise of the collective experiences of authors, we anticipate this e-book to be of worth to the manufacturing engineers within the petroleum business.
