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 IV: Production Operations Engineering will bring readers up to date in the areas of design, equipment selection, and operation procedures for most oil and gas wells. Chapters cover three main topic areas: well completions, problems caused by formation damage, and artificial lift—a major concern for production engineers.

About the Author

Joe Dunn Clegg's 39-year career with Shell Oil Company began with his employment as a petroleum production operations engineer at various locations across the country including Odessa, Midland, and Houston, Texas, as well as Lovington, New Mexico; Billings, Montana; Denver, Colorado; and New Orleans, Louisiana. Throughout his career, Clegg devoted himself to improving the safety of oilfield operations. He was named an SPE Legend in Artificial Lift in 2014. He was chosen to serve during 1984–1985 as an SPE Distinguished Lecturer on the topic of “Artificial Lift: Producing at Optimal Rates.” He served a second term as a Distinguished Lecturer in 1993–1994, speaking on “High-Volume Artificial Lift.” Additionally, he authored and coauthored three papers on artificial lift in the 1980s and 1990s. In 1988, he received the SPE Production and Operations award. Joe held BA and BS degrees in engineering from Rice Institute.

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.
