Whether a fresh graduate or experienced oil and gas engineer, formulas and calculations are a daily interaction that answer the day-to-day challenges but keeping up with all the equations to address the many facets of the business in one succinct location is impossible. Formulas and Calculations for Petroleum Engineering is the most convenient and practical reference for all oil and gas phases of a project. Covering the full spectrum, this reference gives single-point reference to all critical modules including drilling, production, reservoir engineering, well testing, well logging, enhanced oil recovery, well completion, fracturing, fluid flow, and even petroleum economics. Helping the engineer bridge between academic to professional practice, Formulas and Calculations for Petroleum Engineering unlocks the capability for any petroleum engineering individual, experienced or not, to solve problems and locate the answers quickly, eliminating non-productive time spent searching for that right calculation. Enhanced with lab data experiments, practice examples, and a complimentary online software toolbox to use at your fingertips, Formulas and Calculations for Petroleum Engineering gives oil and gas engineers the exact mobile tool needed to make confident decisions and answer today’s challenges.

Key Features

  • Get answers with mobility in an office or on the rig using the hands-on reference or the online software toolbox
  • Gain single-point access to all petroleum engineering equations, including calculation of modules covering from drilling through completion, and fracturing
  • Understand petroleum economics with formulas on depreciation rate, cashflow analysis, and optimum number of development wells


Reservoir engineers; production engineers; drilling engineers; geologists; petrophysicists; geophysicists; engineering and geotechnicians along with engineers without a petroleum engineering background throughout the world in oil and service companies

Tayfun Tuna

Tayfun Tuna, PhD, received his Master and PhD degrees in Computer Science at the University of Houston. His specialties include image analysis, text analysis, and machine learning to improve access to video content. He is currently a Research Associate and Lead Developer in Computer Science at the University of Houston to convert the current prototype lecture video management software (Indexed Captioned Searchable Videos) to a robust system that will be made available to all educational institutions and is currently exploring commercialization. Dr. Tuna is also working as a consultant to provide solutions as a data scientist to “Blue Barrel Solutions”, and as a software developer to “Techstarairsoft” which are both Houston-based startup companies. Dr. Tuna worked at Halliburton – Landmark as a software engineer intern in Summer 2013. His task was research and development on a technique to detect and predict stuck pipe problems in advance by using machine learning algorithms. His project was selected as one of the best among all intern projects and both the interface and the methodology are patented separately. He has two patents and 20 publications.
