"...this publication provides a comprehensive and up-to-date reference tool for the reservoir engineer or reservoir engineering student. It covers reservoir fluid behaviour and properties, including laboratory analysis and reservoir fluid flow. It provides a guide to predicting oil reservoir performance through analysis of oil recovery mechanisms and performance calculations, and explains the fundamentals of reservoir engineering and their application through a comprehensive field study. Two new chapters have been added to this second edition, covering the principles of water flooding and vapour-liquid phase equilibria." - Petroleum Review, May 2002
The job of any reservoir engineer is to maximize production from a field to obtain the best economic return. To do this, the engineer must study the behavior and characteristics of a petroleum reservoir to determine the course of future development and production that will maximize the profit. Fluid flow, rock properties, water and gas coning, and relative permeability are only a few of the concepts that a reservoir engineer must understand to do the job right, and some of the tools of the trade are water influx calculations, lab tests of reservoir fluids, and oil and gas performance calculations.
Two new chapters have been added to the first edition to make this book a complete resource for students and professionals in the petroleum industry: Principles of Waterflooding, Vapor-Liquid Phase Equilibria.

Web Application Design Patterns (Interactive Technologies) Increasingly, software applications are built using web technologies and made accessible via web browsers (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Opera). They are commonly referred to as web applications, or hosted applications—applications based on a software as a service (SaaS) model1 or cloud computing
Making Strategy Work: Leading Effective Execution and Change
Without effective execution, no business strategy can succeed. Unfortunately, most managers know far more about developing strategy than about executing it -- and overcoming the difficult political and organizational obstacles that stand in their way. In this book, leading consultant and Wharton professor Lawrence Hrebiniak offers the first...
