Written by four leading experts, this edition thoroughly introduces today's modern principles of petroleum production systems development and operation, considering the combined behavior of reservoirs, surface equipment, pipeline systems, and storage facilities. The authors address key issues including artificial lift, well diagnosis, matrix stimulation, hydraulic fracturing and sand control. They show how to optimize systems for diverse production schedules using queuing theory, as well as linear and dynamic programming. Throughout, they provide both best practices and rationales, fully illuminating the exploitation of unconventional oil and gas reservoirs.

Updates include:

  • Extensive new coverage of hydraulic fracturing, including high permeability fracturing
  • New sand and water management techniques * An all-new chapter on Production Analysis
  • New coverage of digital reservoirs and self-learning techniques
  •  New skin correlations and HW flow techniques
