Handbook of Natural Gas Transmission and Processing

By Saeid Mokhatab William A. Poe James G. Speight

Because natural gas is just that-a gas-it is very difficult to collect, transmit, and process, unlike liquids. You can feel, see, and handle liquids, but not gas. Due to the very bright future of this expanding industry, more books are needed on the shelves of petroleum engineers who are moving from oil to natural gas markets. Most drilling and petroleum engineers were not schooled specifically as "petroleum engineers," and this creates a dearth of knowledge and expertise in the industrial literature. This gap is usually handled in intracompany ways, through mentoring, company guidelines, and rules of thumb. This book is the "must have" information for the industry today.

Oil Field Chemicals

By: Fink, Johannes Karl

Oil field chemicals are gaining increasing importance, as the resources of crude oil are decreasing. An increasing demand of more sophisticated methods in the exploitation of the natural resources emerges for this reason. This book reviews the progress in the area of oil field chemicals and additives of the last decade from a rather chemical view. The material presented is a compilation from the literature by screening critically approximately 20,000 references. The text is ordered according to applications, just in the way how the jobs are emerging in practice. It starts with drilling, goes to productions and ends with oil spill. Several chemicals are used in multiple disciplines, and to those separate chapters are devoted. Two index registers are available, an index of chemical substances and a general index.

Dynamics of Offshore Structures

Book Description
Unique, cutting-edge material on structural dynamics and natural forces for offshore structures

Using the latest advances in theory and practice, Dynamics of Offshore Structures, Second Edition is extensively revised to cover all aspects of the physical forces, structural modeling, and mathematical methods necessary to effectively analyze the dynamic behavior of offshore structures. Both closed-form solutions and the Mathematica(r) software package are used in many of the up-to-date example problems to compute the deterministic and stochastic structural responses for such offshore structures as buoys; moored ships; and fixed-bottom, cable-stayed, and gravity-type platforms.

Throughout the book, consideration is given to the many assumptions involved in formulating a structural model and to the natural forces encountered in the offshore environment. These analyses focus on plane motions of elastic structures with linear and nonlinear restraints, as well as motions induced by the forces of currents, winds, earthquakes, and waves, including the latest theories and information on wave mechanics. Topics addressed include multidegree of freedom linear structures, continuous system analysis (including the motion of cables and pipelines), submerged pile design, structural modal damping, fluid-structure-soil interactions, and single degree of freedom structural models that, together with plane wave loading theories, lead to deterministic or time history predictions of structural responses. These analyses are extended to statistical descriptions of both wave loading and structural motion.

Dynamics of Offshore Structures, Second Edition is a valuable text for students in civil and mechanical engineering programs and an indispensable resource for structural, geotechnical, and construction engineers working with offshore projects.

Petroleum Reservoir Simulations: A Basic Approach

Book Description:

Reservoir Simulations Handbook is one of the best tools that the reservoir engineer has at his disposal, allowing the engineer and geologist to create the most efficient and cost effective plan possible for drilling and production. If your simulation is faulty, too general or inaccurate in any way, this can affect the production, cost and time spent at the site, which affects the bottom line. Any of these problems can happen when a simulation is generated from a program that is outdated, an unproven method or even a set of equations that use too much guesswork. This book offers a practical, real-world approach to solving reservoir simulation problems. As a reference for the engineer in the field, it offers a new approach using more mathematical models for the engineer to devise his or her own approach to a particular problem.
