Fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering / Edition 1

"This book is fast becoming the standard text in its field", wrote a reviewer in the Journal of Canadian Petroleum Technology soon after the first appearance of Dake's book. This prediction quickly came true: it has become the standard text and has been reprinted many times. The author's aim - to provide students and teachers with a coherent account of the basic physics of reservoir engineering - has been most successfully achieved. No prior knowledge of reservoir engineering is necessary. The material is dealt with in a concise, unified and applied manner, and only the simplest and most straightforward mathematical techniques are used. This low-priced paperback edition will continue to be an invaluable teaching aid for years to come.

Over the years, many texts have been written on the subject of Reservoir Engineering. However, this is the very best of them all! It's comprehensive on topics ranging from aquifer influx to well performance. Moreover, it's very easy to read. For example, his discussion of the unsteady state water influx theory of Hurst and Van Everdingen is the best that I've seen of any reservoir engineering text. Without question, this book should be used by every practicing reservoir engineer.
