Reservoir Engineering Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Practical Enhanced Reservoir Engineering
Assisted with Simulation Software
edited by Abdus Satter

Practical Enhanced Reservoir Engineering is a modern and very practical guide offering reservoir engineering fundamentals, advanced reservoir related topics, reservoir simulation fundamentals, and problems and case studies from around the world.

It is designed to aid students and professionals alike in their active and important roles throughout the reservoir life cycle (discovery, delineation, development, production, and abandonment), and in the various phases of the reservoir management process (setting strategy, developing plan, implementing, monitoring, evaluating, and completing).

This practical book explores the functions of reservoir engineers, and how they analyze, think and work in real life situations. It presents:

  • Rock and fluid properties, fluid flow principles, well test analysis, reservoir performance analysis techniques and applications
  • New topics such as reserves, reservoir economics, risk and uncertainties, probabilistic methods, recovery processes, and applications
  • Role of reservoir simulation models in enhancing basic reservoir engineering concepts and practice
  • Computer-assisted simulation techniques are used extensively in this book to illustrate various concepts and applications related to reservoir engineering
  • Finally, the book offers class projects where the students can apply what they have learned to treat their problems
