Book Description

Reservoir management is concerned with the geoscience and reservoir/production engineering required to plan and optimize the development of discovered or producing oil and gas assets. One of the only books to cover both management and engineering issues, Advanced Reservoir Management and Engineering is redesigned to be the only book you need throughout your career. Written by two of the industry's best-known and well respected reservoir engineers and managers, this new edition offers readers a complete guide for formulating workflow solutions on a day to day bases.

Authoritative in its approach, the book begins with the theory and practice of transient flow analysis and offers a brief but thorough hands-on guide to gas and oil well testing. Chapter two documents water influx models and their practical applications in conducting comprehensive field studies, widely used throughout the industry. Essential topics such as Type-Curve Analysis, unconventional gas reservoirs, and gas hydrates are also covered. The book moves on to provide a clear exposition of key economic and financial management methods for evaluation criteria and cash flow analysis, analysis of fixed capital investments and advanced evaluation approaches. This is followed by a frank discussion of advanced evaluation approaches such as integration of decision analysis and professional ethics.

Readers will find the website a valuable guide for enhancing their understanding of different techniques used for predicting reservoir performance and cost. The website will also include information such as properties, tables and simple calculations. This combination book and website arrangement will prove particularly useful to new professionals interested in increasing their skills or more experienced professional wishing to increase their knowledge of current industry best practices.

The 2nd Edition of the book includes 3 new management chapters, representing a 30% increase over the previous edition. The new subjects include step by step approach to cash flow analysis, analysis of fixed capital investments, cash flow consequences, maintenance as well as a detailed approach to managing working capital. This is followed by a clear exposition of advanced evaluation approaches such as integration of decision analysis and economic evaluation and professional ethics.

  • Maximize cash flow, subject to capital and operating budget
  • Deliver new high-quality investment opportunities to management
  • Effectively manage the development of oil and gas assets
  • Maximize the benefit to the legitimate stakeholders

5Impressive well of information.
By Blorg Lirgemschlip
I was extremely impressed with all of the information provided in this incredibly well put together text. The chapters are fairly long and insightful. This book is most definitely intended for those with prior knowledge on the subject. It is best suited for graduate students, those who are already working in the field and for anyone looking to build on whatever wealth of knowledge they already have on the subject matter.

The First few chapters can seem a bit lengthy and almost a little overwhelming but once you get into the flow of it things become easier to understand. The math involved during these first chapters is going to seem a bit insane at times but I seemed to get the hang of it fast and found everything very fluid after a couple re-reads.

I was most impressed with the chapters on Economic and Financial analysis because they were so well put together and informative. The info provided is almost overwhelming at first glance but it is far easier then the previous chapters in terms of the math skills needed to figure everything out.

Overall, I really enjoyed the author's writing style and the ease of understanding everything laid out for the reader. Anyone in the field of petroleum geology or reservoir engineering will find this a MUST HAVE text for improving upon their skills. Highly recommended!
