Surface Process, Transportation, and Storage, Fourth Edition, the latest release in the Oil and Gas Chemistry Management series, provides a suite of tools on all sectors of oil and gas, from drilling, to production, processing, storage and transportation. This edition delivers chemical oilfield basics while also covering research developments and practical solutions. Organized by type of mitigation and recovery method, engineers can use the book to fully understand how to effectively control chemistry issues, make sound decisions, and mitigate challenges. Basics include gas treating, CO2 recovery, produced water treatment, and advanced topics on hydrotesting, water conditioning and black powder management. Supported by a list of contributing experts from both academia and industry, this book brings a necessary reference for bridging petroleum chemistry operation theory and safer and cost-effective practical applications.
