    Book Description

    Acidification is a universal problem at all mining sites in which oxygenated water comes in contact with sulfide minerals or other reduced sulfur compounds. An International Workshop was held in September 1995 at the Department for Inland Water Research of the UFZ-Centre for Environmental Research in Magdeburg on the limnology of lakes created by open-cast lignite mining, emphasizing the often observed geogenic acidification after oxidation of pyrite. The volume has 25 chapters including a chapter with results of group discussions about the topics mentioned above and further problems that were identified during the meeting. The monograph gives a baseline of the state of science on the worldwide problem of geogenic acidification of lakes following human mining activities. ... Read more

    Book Description

    Completely revised and updated, this new edition of the popular and highly regarded textbook, Applied Geophysics, describes the physical methods involved in exploration for hydrocarbons and minerals.These tools include gravity, magnetic, seismic, electrical, electromagnetic, and radioactivity studies.All aspects of these methods are described, including theoretical considerations, data acquisition, and data processing and interpretation, with the objective of locating concentrations of natural resources and defining their extent. In the past fourteen years or so since the writing ofApplied Geophysics, there have been many changes in the field of exploration geophysics. The authors give full treatment to changes in this field, which include improved techniques for calculating gravity fields, the use of proton-precession and optically-pumped magnetometers, improved quality of seismic data, magnetotelluric as a practical exploration method, new electromagnetic exploration methods, the use of gamma-ray spectrometers in radioactive exploration, and improved well-logging techniques. The intent is to be practical, and thus many actual examples and problems are given.Moreover, wherever possible in this edition the authors adopt the use of Système Internationale (SI) units, which were not in standared use at the time of the first edition.The reader needs only a general background knowledge of geology, physics, and mathematics.Most of the math can be skipped by those interested only in the results. Advanced mathematical concepts are explained in the appendix. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Textbook Approach
    This excellent textbook illuminates for beginners and veterans alike the wonderful world of oil and gas accounting -- which is more of an art than a science. It is clear and concise as to how to account for the acquisition and amortization of unproved property, though it does not offer advice for dealing with the obese lazy sluggards who typically take up space in oil company land departments, and go their merry ways without regard for proper financial record-keeping. FOOAGA properly instructs regarding the tracking and reporting of exploratory well costs, though it ignores the reality that operations personnel are notoriously lax about tracking well costs, thus rendering well-drilling cost accruals useless much of the time (typically leading to suprising late charges). The book wonderfully explains revenue interests and working interests, though it glazes over the reality that accounting for such activity is a nightmare in major oil companies who have cut back their accounting staffs to the bone (or idiotically outsourced their accounting staffs, completely demoralizing everyone and ensuring they will receive only the bare-bones, skeletal minimum efforts from their outsourced wage slaves) (and it doesn't mention all of the work that oil companies, hoping to operate on the cheap, have sent overseas to Bangalore sweat shops). While presenting textbook situations that look great on paper, this book kindly omits the sort of hell experienced by the oil companies whose hare-brained management bought the SAP accounting system -- which is probably the worst means ever devised for tracking oil/gas accounting activities.

    Yes, this fine book paints a rosy picture and looks great on paper, but it doesn't really tell you about the poor chumps on the front lines of oil/gas accounting, struggling with all of the obstacles and idiocy they must overcome simply to close the books each month. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Just the right balance between brevity and detail
    Leffler, Pattarozzi, and Sterling have produced a useful and interesting book about the challenge of drilling for oil at incredible depths beneath the ocean. The book strikes just the right balance, as both a brief overview of the industry and a detailed look at essential concepts of deepwater exploration and production.

    This book begins with a brief history of oil exploration, both onshore and offshore. Throughout, the authors provide boxes with interesting facts and background material that help maintain the reader's interest. Some boxes are stories of innovations in the field (such as John Chance's invention of a system to "decode" the jittered government GPS data) whlie other boxes explain some of the unfamiliar terms of the oilfield world, like use of "Christmas Tree" for a certain piece of equipment and the use of unusual names for oilfield leases (such as "Bullwinkle" and "Cognac").

    My only dissatisfaction with the book is the lack of a bibliography to assist the reader in finding more information on certain subjects covered. Also, the index should include more key names and terms. (For example, the name John Chance is not in the index despite the fact that his discovery is mentioned in a supplemental box.) I like any book that I read to have an extensive index so that I can quickly return to interesting passages.

    The book is a relatively quick read. In just one day I read about one-third of the book (well into Chapter 4). The book assumes that the reader has little technical knowledge (but at least some technical interest) and would be a good introduction to the oilfield terminology and concepts, especially for nontechnical personnel who have to work with the engineers and geologists. (For the record, I am a civil engineer, and I worked a little with the oil industry in the past. My current interest is in the creative aspects of design and innovation.)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Broad, concise, and interesting
    This is a good place to start if you're looking for a very general introduction to deepwater exploration and production (E&P). Almost nothing gets a lot of detail, but almost nothing is omitted. The chapters cover the following topics:

    1 - history of offshore drilling
    2 - the move into deeper and deeper water in the eighties
    3 - exploration
    4 - drilling and completion
    5 - development systems
    6 - fixed structures -- compliant towers, concrete, etc.
    7 - floating systems -- TLPs, FPSOs, spars, and so on
    8 - subsea systems
    9 - topsides
    10 - piplines, flowlines, and risers
    11 - technology and the future

    The writing is sound, and there are plenty of decent graphics -- pictures of the gigantic Bullwinkle platform; photographs and schematics of equipment and layouts; and a couple of colour plates showing seismic analysis displays. The chapters are really just overviews -- although there's a fair amount of detail in some areas, particularly in platform construction and assembly, there is so much to say that they can't do more than scratch the surface.

    The book does give you quite a lot of vocabulary to work with, which is valuable. There are a multitude of online oil and gas glossaries that you might want to search for via the web, but the narrative form that this book provides is a pretty good way to understand them too.

    If you are new to E&P and would like a good overview, this is a pretty good place to start, but it won't take you very far in any one direction. ... Read more

    Book Description

    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.

    Covers reservoir fluid behavior and properties, including laboratory analysis and reservoir fluid flow

    Provides a guide to predicting oil reservoir performance through analysis of oil recovery mechanisms and performance calculations

    Explains the fundamentals of reservoir engineering and their practical application through a comprehensive field study

    3-0 out of 5 stars Old reservoir engineering
    I have read the book and found that it basically covers the state of the art of "classical" reservoir engineering of about the 60's or 70's, with some material taken from papers published in the 80's and 90's. It is outdated to a great extent.

    The virtue of this book is that it reviews a wide range of topics like MBEs, IPRs, basic reservoir fluid properties, etc. Good for undergrads taking courses in reservoir engineering.

    The statements at the back side of the cover (second edition) are misleading. This book does not contain "all of the information and insight a reservoir engineer must have to do the job right", nor is it "the complete resource for students and professionals in the petroleum industry". This book is only at the introductory level and there are many other books like Dake and Craft & Hawkins which cover almost the same topics with more detail.

    If it is an extensive reference book what you are looking for, I would rather recommend the Petroleum Engineering Handbook. It is more comprehensive and can cost you about the same price or less (if you are an SPE member).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book to find all basic topics on reservoir engineering
    I've seen that all topics on reservoir engineering have been covered in sufficient detail and very systematically. I strongly reccommed the book to those looking for a starting book on reservoir engineering and to those who, after a while, got lost among SPE papers and specialized books to come back to the backbone of the issue.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Waste of money
    The book is unpractical for the working engineer and the mathematics is simplified calculus which is not understandable to the average practicing engineer, but seems to be in favor of academic types. This is not a book for someone who wants to learn why production equipment works. The chapter on multiphase flow is its only saving grace, but any cheap paper on the subject will say as much. I would recomened the OGCI books on Production Technology. Way cheaper...way better...

    Book Description

    Since publication of the 2nd edition, there have been considerable advances in instrumentation, and far-reaching developments in applications for small-scale geophysical surveys. Much more can now be done in the field by way of processing and data display, and even interpretation.

    Covering applications in mineral exploration, engineering/environmental studies, hydrogeology and archaeology, this book puts emphasis on practical applications and the common problems and pitfalls. Simple interpretation methods are discussed with particular emphasis on preliminary interpretations as important elements in field quality control.

    Field Geophysics Third Edition has been revised and updated for the modern world but keeps its popular handy pocket size for use in the field. This edition includes:

    • New sections on the use of hand-held GPS receivers, capacitatively-coupled resistivity methods and Controlled Source Audiomagnetotellurics (CSAMT)
    • Specific guidance in the use of common field instruments, including possible problems and how to avoid them
    • Expanded treatments of transient electromagnetics, and the advantages and pitfalls of the use of dataloggers and automatic reading in the field

    Field Geophysics Third Edition provides practical information and assistance to anyone engaged in small-scale geophysical surveys on the ground. Geophysics students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, employees in geophysical and engineering consultancies, geophysicists and geologists in government surveys and mining companies, field archaeologists and hydrogeologists will all find this book useful. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A very pratical guide...
    John thinks of every eventuality in the field, and especially recommends a very natty rubber mac - I can just see him in it! This book covers every geophysical field technique useful for four or less people (which does NOT include remote sensing, as the person above seems not to recognise). It is written in the same dry, and sometimes faintly sarcastic vein, that anyone who knows him will recognise.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Field Geophysics
    This book covers almost all of the current geophysics topics. It gives a sometimes too brief description of the equipment. Reviews the theory and discusses field operations with many helpful hint to stay out of trouble. The book does not cover remote sensing or the metal detector which too many geologists have written off as mearly a hobby ... Read more
