Book Description

"This book is fast becoming the standard text in its field", wrote a reviewer in the Journal of Canadian Petroleum Technology soon after the first appearance of Dake's book. This prediction quickly came true: it has become the standard text and has been reprinted many times. The author's aim - to provide students and teachers with a coherent account of the basic physics of reservoir engineering - has been most successfully achieved. No prior knowledge of reservoir engineering is necessary. The material is dealt with in a concise, unified and applied manner, and only the simplest and most straightforward mathematical techniques are used. This low-priced paperback edition will continue to be an invaluable teaching aid for years to come.

5This is THE Book on Reservoir Engineering
By Alex Stewart
So you want to learn about reservoir engineering? Then you're going to need the right material. And this book is it. Fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering by Dake is the "bible" of reservoir engineering. Many college courses utilize and require this textbook. Amazon also offers this text at a great price, much cheaper than through purchasing from ElSevier.

The book starts off with material balance. This is the bread and butter of petroleum science and reservoir engineering. Each chapter thereafter continues to build on different areas of reservoir engineering. I would highly recommend this book.

4Deep reminder on technical issues in petroleum.
By kspshnik
This book served as a very deep and efficient reminder on issues I had studied in field of upstream in l'ENSPM at Petroleum Economics and Management course. Might be looking too technical, but no important point is missed.

Really useful and helpful for non-technical people with engineering background in upstream petroleum economics.
