The Complete, Up-to-Date, Practical Guide to Modern Petroleum Reservoir Engineering This is a complete, up-to-date guide to the practice of petroleum reservoir engineering, written by one of the worldrs"s most experienced professionals. Nnaemeka Ezekwe covers topics ranging from basic to advanced, focuses on currently acceptable practices and modern techniques, and illuminates key concepts with realistic case studies drawn from decades in the field. Ezekwe begins by discussing the basic rock and fluid properties data that underlie all reservoir engineering calculations. Next, he shows how to predict P-V-T properties with equations of state, and introduces the core concepts and techniques of basic reservoir engineering. Using case study examples, he thoroughly explains fluid flow in petroleum reservoirs, walks through essential well test analysis calculations, and presents each leading secondary and enhanced oil recovery methods. Readers will find practical coverage of software-based geologic modeling, reservoir characterization, and reservoir simulation. Ezekwe concludes by presenting a set of simple real-world principles for more effective petroleum reservoir management. WithPetroleum Reservoir Engineering Practicereaders will learn to Apply essential concepts, such as rock porosity, rock and relative permeability, and saturation Use the general material balance equation for basic reservoir analysis Perform accurate volumetric and graphical calculations of gas or oil reserves Analyze fluid flow, reservoir drive mechanisms, and pressure transients Understand the behavior of normal wells, hydraulically fractured wells, and naturally fractured reservoirs Use waterflooding, gasflooding, and other secondary recovery methods Understand modern enhanced oil recovery, including screening criteria and practical field implementation Use commercial software to model geologies, and to characterize and simulate reservoirs Throughout, Ezekwe combines thorough coverage of calculations and modeling with crucial information on data gathering and measurement. Each topic is presented concisely, and supported with copious references and examples. The result is an ideal handbook for working engineers, scientists, technicians, and managers-and a uniquely realistic primer for students.
