Petroleum engineers search through endless sources to understand oil and gas chemicals, find problems, and discover solutions while operations are becoming more unconventional and driving towards more sustainable practices. The Oil and Gas Chemistry Management Series brings an all-inclusive suite of tools to cover all the sectors of oil and gas chemicals from drilling to production, processing, storage, and transportation. The second reference in the series, Flow Assurance, delivers the critical chemical oilfield basics while also covering latest research developments and practical solutions. Organized by the type of problems and mitigation methods, this reference allows the engineer to fully understand how to effectively control chemistry issues, make sound decisions, and mitigate challenges ahead. Basics include root cause, model prediction and laboratory simulation of the major chemistry related challenges during oil and gas productions,  while more advanced discussions cover the chemical and non-chemical mitigation strategies for more efficient, safe and sustainable operations.   Supported by a list of contributing experts from both academia and industry, Flow Assurance brings a necessary reference to bridge petroleum chemistry operations from theory into safer and cost-effective practical applications.
