About the Authors
  • Beginning with an overview of classical reservoir engineering and basic reservoir simulation methods, this book then progresses through a discussion of types of flows - single-phase, two-phase, black oil (three-phase), single phase with multi-components, compositional, and thermal. The author provides a thorough glossary of petroleum engineering terms and their units, along with basic flow and transport equations and their unusual features, and corresponding rock and fluid properties. The book also summarises the practical aspects of reservoir simulation, such as data gathering and analysis, and reservoir performance prediction. Suitable as a text for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students in geology, petroleum engineering, and applied mathematics; as a reference book; or as a handbook for practitioners in the oil industry. Prerequisites are calculus, basic physics, and some knowledge of partial differential equations and matrix algebra.
