Fine Reservoir Description: Techniques, Current Status, Challenges and Solutions presents studies on fine oil and gas reservoirs, covering aspects of current status and progress, content and methods/techniques, as well as challenges and solutions through literature review and case studies of reservoirs, including volcanic rocks in the Songliao Basin, glutenite at the northwestern margin of the Junggar Basin, and sandstone in the Liaohe Basin, China. This book contains a large amount of data and illustrations.

Key Features

  • Provides a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in refined reservoir characterization for three types of reservoirs: high water cut, low permeability, and complex lithology
  • Includes methods and techniques of fine reservoir description that are elaborated from nine aspects, such as fine stratigraphic division and correlation, fracture characterization and fine characterization of sand body
  • Presents eight easy to use measures that are proposed to solve the problems of fine reservoir description


Managers, researchers and engineering technicians engaged in oil and gas field exploration and development as well as related disciplines. Postgraduate and academic researchers on oil and gas
