Shale oil and gas have altered the energy landscape, possibly permanently. They burst upon the fossil energy scene with a suddenness that initially defied prediction. Even the political balance of the world has changed. But, with the methods employed, the vast majority of the oil and gas remains in the...
Practical Engineering Management of Offshore Oil and Gas Platforms delivers the first must-have content to the multiple engineering managers and clients devoted to the design, equipment, and operations of offshore oil and gas platforms. Concepts explaining how to interact with the various task forces, getting through bid proposals, and how...

Understanding the properties of a reservoir's fluids and creating a successful model based on lab data and calculation are required for every reservoir engineer in oil and gas today, and with reservoirs becoming more complex, engineers and managers are back to reinforcing the fundamentals. PVT pressure-volume-temperature reports are one way...
The blowout of the Deepwater Horizon and subsequent underground oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 is considered by many to be the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. Interest groups, public officials, and media organizations have spent considerable time documenting the economic and ecological impacts of this...
Every oil and gas refinery or petrochemical plant requires sufficient utilities support in order to maintain a successful operation. A comprehensive utilities complex must exist to distribute feedstocks, discharge waste streams, and remains an integrated part of the refinery's infrastructure. Essentials of Oil and Gas Utilities explains these support systems...
Craft and Hawkins's classic introduction to petroleum reservoir engineering has been fully updated to reflect modern methods. The authors thoroughly introduce the material balance approach, preparing both students and practitioners to understand and succeed in the field of petroleum reservoir engineering.
Covering the chemical structures and properties of fuels and fuel additives, Fuels and Fuels-Additives provides the science and technology involved in the production of energy efficient and environmentally friendly fuels and the role that fuel additives have in this process.
A reservoir characterization as a discipline grew out of the recognition that more oil and gas could be extracted from reservoirs if the geology of the reservoir was understood. This title describes different types of sandstone and shale reservoirs and applications of standard, new, and emerging technologies.
