Here is a comprehensive introduction to the highly practical and diverse applications of surfactants within the petroleum industry, detailing their nature, occurrence, physical properties, propagation, and uses. The focus is on the knowledge and practices needed to successfully deal with surfactants in the petroleum production process: in reservoirs, in oil and gas wells, in surface processing operations, and in environmental, health and safety applications. Throughout, important applications of colloid and interface science principles are emphasized and real-world processes and problems are clearly illustrated. The book also includes a comprehensive glossary.
