A practical, fast-paced approach to teaching the concepts and problems common in petroleum engineering that will appeal to a wide range of disciplines, this three-volume series covers core topics and includes full-color CT and NMR images, graphs, and figures to illustrate the practical application of the material.
Petrophysics is the study of rock properties and their interactions with fluids. The series provides a basic understanding of the physical properties of permeable geologic rocks and the interactions of oil, water and gas with their interstitial surfaces, with special focus on the transport properties of rocks for single-phase and multiphase flow.
Based on Dr. Peters’s highly acclaimed graduate course taught at the University of Texas at Austin and at petroleum industry training programs, Advanced Petrophysics features over 140 exercises and a series of real-world projects that enable the student to apply the principles presented in the text to build a petrophysical model using well logs and core data from a major petroleum-producing province. more information >>
