Sustainable Oil and Gas Development Series: Reservoir Development delivers research materials and emerging technologies that conform sustainability in today’s reservoirs. Starting with a status of technologies available, the reference describes sustainability as it applies to fracturing fluids, particularly within unconventional reservoirs. Basement reservoirs are discussed along with non-energy applications of fluids. Sustainability considerations for reserve predication are covered followed by risk analysis and scaling guidelines for further field development. Rounding out with conclusions and remaining challenges, Sustainable Oil and Gas Development Series: Reservoir Development gives today and future petroleum engineers a focused and balanced path to strengthen sustainability practices.
- Gain insight to more environmentally-friendly protocols for both unconventional and basement reservoirs, including non-energy applications of reservoir fluids
- Determine more accurate reserves and keep budgets in line while focusing on emission reduction
- Learn from a well-known author with extensive experience in both academia and industry
