Reservoir Surveillance

(No reviews yet) Write a Review


Generating economic producing opportunities in a new or an existing field is key to the success of an oil and gas company. These opportunities arise from a systematic assessment of key value drivers through relevant and appropriate measurements and by performing vigorous analysis that creates intelligence for the field. Interwoven in this evident and simple construct is the understanding of reservoir surveillance technologies. This book will help the reader not only clearly understand the broad spectrum of issues to consider for surveillance but also provide tools, techniques and templates to adapt to his or her specific needs. The theory behind some of the equipment as well as data analytics is illustrated with examples. It is essential reading for reservoir, production, operations engineers and earth scientists. Theoretical background and concepts discussed will be valuable for the university student to gain fluency in this integrated subject.
