The Petroleum Engineering Handbook has long been recognized as a valuable, comprehensive reference book that offers practical day-to-day applications for students and experienced engineering professionals alike. The Petroleum Engineering Handbook is a series of 7 volumes sold individually or as a complete set.

Volume II: Drilling Engineering, the first drilling content to be included in the Petroleum Engineering Handbook, is intended to provide a snapshot of the drilling state of the art at the beginning of the 21st century. Drilling technology has evolved substantially over the years, from slide rules and hand calculations to advanced computer science and numerical analysis. Editor in Chief: Larry W. Lake

About the Author

Robert F. Mitchell is the president of Well Complete, LLC. He has published over 100 papers on wellbore and well completion problems, including wellbore thermal/flow simulation, drillstring mechanics, tubing buckling analysis, arctic well completions, tubular stress analysis, and geomechanics. Principal technical accomplishments include the first deep permafrost thaw subsidence casing design, the comprehensive analysis of the post-buckling equilibrium of tubulars, and the accurate prediction of dynamic surge pressures. He won the SPE Drilling and Completions Award for 2005. He authored the casing and tubing design chapter for the textbook Petroleum Well Construction, one of the editors of the textbook Advanced Drilling and Well Technology, and lead editor for the textbook Fundamentals of Drilling Engineering. He has served as technical editor for Applied Mechanics Reviews, The Journal of Energy Resources Technology, SPE Computer Applications, the SPE Journal, and has been executive editor for SPE Drilling and Completions. He was a Halliburton Technology Fellow in the Drilling and Evaluation Division of Halliburton from 1996 to 2014, vice president of Enertech Engineering and Research Company from 1980 to 1996 and worked at Exxon Production Research Co from 1973 to 1980. He holds BA, MME, and Ph.D. degrees from Rice University, and is a registered professional engineer in Texas.

Larry W. Lake is the Shahid and Sharon Ullah Endowed Chair in petroleum engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. He has served on the faculty of the Hildebrand Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering since 1978. He obtained a B.S.E. from Arizona State University and a Ph.D. from Rice University, both in chemical engineering. He is a world-famous expert in reservoir engineering, geochemistry, fluid flow in porous media and enhanced oil recovery.
