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
  • The definitive guide to petroleum production systems for 16 years: now fully updated with the industry's most valuable new techniques!
  • Supports massive worldwide growth in the demand for petroleum engineers (even the older edition has shown substantial sales growth lately)
  • Contains extensive new coverage, including new techniques for hydraulic fracturing, sand and water management, and much more
  • Includes all-new examples and problems based on Excel and PPS, plus hundreds of new drawings, many of them 3D
