Description

Tight Oil Reservoirs: Characterization, Modeling, and Field Development, the latest release in the Unconventional Reservoir Engineering Series, delivers a full spectrum of reservoir engineering guidelines so that the engineer can focus on every stage of development specific to tight oil. Covering characterization, micro- and nano-scale modeling, drilling horizontally, completing hydraulic fracturing, and field development, each section includes case studies, practice exercises, and future references for even deeper understanding. Rounding out with coverage on field economics and remaining challenges, this book puts control in the engineer’s hands.In this ongoing series, each release will discuss the latest resources, explain their importance in the market, show the benefits of the resource through the latest research, provide details and protocols on how to evaluate and develop the resource, and give case studies and practice questions to gain practicality.
