Petroleum Engineer’s Guide to Oil Field Chemicals and Fluids, Third Edition delivers all the necessary lists of chemicals by use, their basic components, benefits and environmental implications. Instead of searching through various sources, this updated reference presents a one-stop, non-commercialized approach by organizing products by function, matching the chemical to the process for practical problem-solving, and extending coverage with additional resources and supportive materials. Updates include shale specific fluids and organic additives, including swellable polymers and multi-walled carbon nanotubes.
Covering the full spectrum, including fluid loss additives and oil spill treating agents, this book is ideal for every oil and gas operation with its options for lower costs, sustainable use and enhanced production.
- Helps readers effectively locate and utilize the right chemical application specific to their oil and gas operation
- Includes updated sections on shale specific fluids, defoamers and organic additives, including biodegradable waste and swellable polymers
- Covers environmental factors and risks for oil field chemicals, along with the pluses and minuses of each application
