Description

Flow assurance is a growing discipline in oil and gas operations, in particular solid deposits. A large number of engineers and operators do not have an all-inclusive reference discussing all the factors affecting the process of formation nor the proper management strategies aligned to make flow assurance more efficient and environmentally friendly. Essentials of Flow Assurance Solids in Oil and Gas Operations: Understanding Fundamentals, Characterization, Prediction, Environmental Safety, and Management is a comprehensive resource that delivers all the factors involved, methods, and literature review to work with the engineer through the process. Structured to flow through real-world operations, the reference branches through each problem, cause, prediction, modeling management strategies, and environmental considerations. Essentials of Flow Assurance Solids in Oil and Gas Operations: Understanding Fundamentals, Characterization, Prediction, Environmental Safety, and Management gives petroleum and reservoir engineers a resource for sustainable and more precise operations.

Key Features

  • Understand the general flow of field operations, starting with a full investigation of the problems, then mechanisms, causes, predictions, modelling, sample analysis, followed by management and environmental aspects
  • Improve system integrity and environmental safety with literature reviews covering essential factors and supported by practical case studies
  • Learn through impactful visuals and data sets included in every chapter

Readership
