Working Guide to Petroleum and Natural Gas Production EngineeringBy
- William Lyons
Based on the classic Standard Handbook of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering, Second Edition, the Working Guide to Petroleum and Natural Gas Production Engineering begins with an extensive overview of the basic principles, definitions, and data. Later chapters cover properties of hydrocarbon mixtures, flow natural flow of fluids, natural flow performance, artificial lift methods and corrosion and scaling. This book provides engineers with a bases for understanding important concepts such a flow phenomena, hydrate formation, pressure (surge) waves, or high viscosity liquid flow failure. The focus of book is to assist the reader to understand and avoid potential operational challenges and design effective solutions and operational responses.
