Quantitative Methods in Reservoir Engineering by Wilson C. Chin

Book Description

For the practitioner, this volume is a valuable tool for predicting reservoir flow in the most efficient and profitable manner possible, using quantitative methods rather than anecdotal and outdated methods. For the student, this volume offers insight not covered in other textbooks. Too many approaches in traditional petroleum engineering are based on "ad hoc" and "common sense" methods that have no rigorous mathematical basis. Most textbooks dealing with reservoir engineering do not go into the necessary mathematical detail and depth. This new book by Wilson Chin, a revision of two earlier books published by Gulf Publishing, "Modern Reservoir Flow" and "Well Transient Analysis and Formation Invasion", integrates rigorous mathematical methods for simulating and predicting reservoir flow both near and away from the well. It predicts reservoir flow to maximize resources, time, and profits. It includes problems and solutions for students. It presents mathematical models in an easy-to-understand and easy-to-simulate format.
