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 practice. 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 third reference in the series, Recovery Improvement, Volume Three delivers the critical chemical oilfield basics while also covering latest research developments and practical solutions. Organized by the type of mitigation and recovery method, the engineer can fully understand how to effectively control chemistry issues, make sound decisions, and mitigate the challenges ahead. Basics include corrosion inhibition, scale mitigation, and paraffin control, while more advanced topics cover biocide treatments, CO2 flooding and sequestration, and chemical and non-chemical methods for more sustainable water production control. Supported by a list of contributing experts from both academia and industry, Recovery Enhancement brings a necessary reference to bridge petroleum chemistry operations from theory into safer and cost-effective practical applications.
