Introduction to Petroleum Engineering
Introduction to Petroleum Engineering introduces people with technical backgrounds to petroleum engineering. The book presents fundamental terminology and concepts from geology, geophysics, petrophysics, drilling, production, and reservoir engineering. It covers upstream, midstream, and downstream operations. Exercises at the end of each chapter are designed to highlight and reinforce material in the chapter and encourage the reader to develop a deeper understanding of the material.
Introduction to Petroleum Engineering is suitable for science and engineering students, practicing scientists and engineers, continuing education classes, industry short courses, or self‐study. The material in Introduction to Petroleum Engineering has been used in upper‐level undergraduate and introductory graduate‐level courses for engineering and earth science majors. It is especially useful for geoscientists and mechanical, electrical, environmental, and chemical engineers who would like to learn more about the engineering technology needed to produce oil and gas.
Our colleagues in industry and academia and students in multidisciplinary classes helped us identify material that should be understood by people with a range of technical backgrounds. We thank Helge Alsleben, Bill Eustes, Jim Gilman, Pradeep Kaul, Don Mims, Wayne Pennington, and Rob Sutton for comments on specific chapters and Kathy Fanchi for helping prepare this manuscript.
