Overview

All too often, senior reservoir managers have found that their junior staff lack an adequate understanding of reservoir management techniques and best practices needed to optimize the development of oil and gas fields. Written by an expert professional/educator,Integrated Reservoir Asset Management introduces the reader to the processes and modeling paradigms needed to develop the skills to increase reservoir output and profitability and decrease guesswork.

One of the only references to recognize the technical diversity of modern reservoir management teams, Fanchi seamlessly brings together concepts and terminology, creating an interdisciplinary approach for solving everyday problems. The book starts with an overview of reservoir management, fluids, geological principles used to characterization, and two key reservoir parameters (porosity and permeability). This is followed by an uncomplicated review of multi-phase fluid flow equations, an overview of the reservoir flow modeling process and fluid displacement concepts. All exercises and case studies are based on the authors 30 years of experience and appear at the conclusion of each chapter with hints in addition of full solutions. In addition, the book will be accompanied by a website featuring supplementary case studies and modeling exercises which is supported by an author generated computer program.

  • Straightforward methods for characterizing subsurface environments
  • Effortlessly gain and understandingof rock-fluid interaction relationships
  • An uncomplicated overview of both engineering and scientific processes
  • Exercises at the end of each chapter to demonstrate correct application
  • Modeling tools and additional exercise are included on a companion website

StarBright's POV: The moon never rose. I took courtesy in raising the stars, but Luna never raised the moon. All I could hear when I walked down the bridge by her tower was groaning. Endless, pained groans. Like something was dying in her quarters. Painfully. The moon was kept under Equestria, safe, but everypony had started to worry it would be gone forever. Thinking about saving Equestria, I flew off, gliding with my dark, dark grey wings. <br> Twilight's POV: I watched as the youngest princess glode in, mane still with worry. "Princess StarBright! Why are you here?" I flexed my wings, ready for a long journey. "There is something wrong with Luna!" She looked at her hooves, yellow eyes clouded with fears and worries. Rainbow Dash rolled her eyes. "I noticed." I smacked her with my wing as she cracked up. "What, exactly, is the problem. I know, about the moon, bu&mdash;" "Silence!" Her eyes sterned with fear. "When I walk past her quarters, all I hear is groaning. Like something is dying." I flew off with her.
