Oil and gas continue to be key sources of energy for a global energy infrastructure that is designed to use fossil energy. Introduction to Petroleum Engineering, available now from Wiley, is a valuable resource for people with science and engineering backgrounds who would like to learn more about the engineering technology needed to produce oil and gas. The book presents fundamental terminology and concepts from geology, geophysics, petrophysics, drilling, production and reservoir engineering. Exercises at the end of each chapter are designed to highlight and reinforce material in the chapter, and encourage the reader to develop a deeper understanding of the material.
Introduction to Petroleum Engineering is suitable for science and engineering students, practicing scientists and engineers, continuing education classes, industry short courses, or self-study. The material in Introduction to Petroleum Engineering has been used in upper level undergraduate and introductory graduate level courses for engineering and earth science majors.
