Description:

Computer Assisted Petroleum Production covers the full scope of petroleum production engineering. Following the sequence of oil and gas production process, this book presents its contents in eighteen chapters covering petroleum production engineering fundamentals, principles and rules of designing and selecting the main components of petroleum production systems, artificial lift methods, and production enhancement techniques. Applications of the engineering principles are illustrated by solving example problems. While the solutions to some simple problems not involving iterative procedures are demonstrated with stepwise calculations, complicated problems are solved with computer spreadsheet programs. Focuses on presenting and illustrating engineering principles used for designing and analyzing petroleum production systems, Offers solutions to the example problems with stepwise calculations and computer spreadsheet programs. Includes a CD-ROM containing computer programs with both U.S field units and SI units
