Many books have tackled the subject of resource characterization in oil and gas fields but most of them deal with theory. Very few actually address how to practically carry out resource characterization.

This book provides a step-by-step resource characterization guide for both geologists and reservoir engineers. It takes related theory concepts and puts them in context in workflows that allow the geologist or engineer to complete the task of resource characterization. Both new plays and mature fields are addressed. Finally, the authors examine how to coherently present the findings from resource characterization.

Completing a resource characterization allows for quantification of hydrocarbons in a field, and determination of the value of hydrocarbons present. This book enables the user to determine the value of their hydrocarbon assets.

About the Author

Dr. Quinta Nwanosike-Warren - Engineer

Dr. Quinta Nwanosike-Warren is the Founder and CEO of Engineering Research Consulting, LLC (http://EngrRC.com). She holds a Chemical Engineering PhD from Georgia Tech, and a Chemical Engineering Bachelors from Penn State University.

In her distinguished career, Dr. Nwanosike-Warren has worked for ConocoPhillips as a reservoir engineer characterizing resources in both mature and new fields in South Texas; researching innovative and economic solutions for recovery of heavy oil in the Canadian oil sands; developing novel methods and compounds for CO2 capture in refining. During her graduate career, she invented a method of predicting crystallization in protein solutions through thermodynamic measurements. She has led an asset development team through a depletion planning exercise. She led a team through an A&D exercise leading to successful divestiture of the asset.

Dr. Nwanosike-Warren holds a patent for a CO2 Solvent Loading System (US20130136681 A1), and has numerous publications and presentations. She is currently Director of Program Development for the Dakar American University of Science and Technology (DAUST) in Senegal.
