Petroleum Resources with Emphasis on Offshore Fields
WIT Press, 2010 - Technology & Engineering - 269 pages
There are large challenges facing the oil and gas industry, e.g. increasing challenges to find new oil and gas accumulations, a requirement for a clean environment and reductions in CO2 emissions being voiced by public and governments, requirement for long distance transport of natural gas from the producers to the consumers and rapid changes in the price of hydrocarbons on the world market. The decision makers need a wide background for their decisions, and all aspects of the value chain are important in order to identify the optimal field development solution. The objective of this book is to treat in a consistent manner the key aspects related to development of petroleum resources in order to allow an interdisciplinary view of the topics involved in development projects and in order to identify the most optimal development solution. The book is organized to allow the reader to review the different topics individually so the book can serve as a reference source for those interested in topics not familiar to themselves.
