Reservoir Simulation Problems and Solutions

(No reviews yet) Write a Review


Reservoir simulation has been in practice for more than 50 years, but it has recently gained significant momentum because of its wider application to the increasingly complex reservoir systems of today. Reservoir Simulation: Problems and Solutions provides petroleum engineers with extensive practice in the art of problem solving, strengthening their critical-thinking solution strategies and preparing them for the unique problems they will encounter in this dynamic field. Built on the fundamental concepts and solutions of the original exercises found in Basic Applied Reservoir Simulation (Turgay Ertekin, Jamal H. Abou-Kassem, and Gregory R. King), this new book provides an additional 180 exercises and solutions that fully illustrate the intricacies of reservoir-simulation methodology.
