  • Optimal Oil Production and the World Supply of Oilby Nikolay Aleksandrov; lajos Gyurko; Raphael A. Espinoza

    International Monetary Fund 2012; US$ 9.00

    We study the optimal oil extraction strategy and the value of an oil field using a multiple real option approach. The numerical method is flexible enough to solve a model with several state variables, to discuss the effect of risk aversion, and to take into account uncertainty in the size of reserves. Optimal extraction in the baseline model is found... more...

  • Basic Theory in Reflection Seismologyby J.K. Costain; C. Coruh

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 250.00

    The material in this volume provides the basic theory necessary to understand the principles behind imaging the subsurface of the Earth using reflection and refraction seismology. For reflection seismology, the end product is a "record section" from a collection of "wiggly traces" that are recorded in the field from which information about the properties... more...

  • Seismic Stratigraphy, Basin Analysis and Reservoir Characterisationby Paul P. Veeken

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 190.00

    The interest in seismic stratigraphic techniques to interpret reflection datasets is well established. The advent of sophisticated subsurface reservoir studies and 4D monitoring, for optimising the hydrocarbon production in existing fields, does demonstrate the importance of the 3D seismic methodology. The added value of reflection seismics to the... more...

  • Three-Dimensional Electromagneticsby P.E. Wannamaker; Michael S. Zhdanov

    Elsevier Science 2002; US$ 225.00

    "3-D modeling and inversion is a reality, and not an illusion." This is the clear conclusion of the Second International Symposium on Three-Dimensional Electromagnetics held at the University of Utah in 1999. Containing papers submitted by 36 authors, this volume, by the sheer number of works, their diversity, and the truly international character... more...

  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonanceby K.-J. Dunn; D.J. Bergman; G.A. LaTorraca

    Elsevier Science 2002; US$ 135.00

    The applications of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to petroleum exploration and production have become more and more important in recent years. The development of the NMR logging technology and the NMR applications to core analysis and formation evaluation have been very rapid and extensive. The scope of this book covers a wide range of NMR related... more...

  • Soft Computing and Intelligent Data Analysis in Oil Explorationby M. Nikravesh; L.A. Zadeh; Fred Aminzadeh

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 235.00

    This comprehensive book highlights soft computing and geostatistics applications in hydrocarbon exploration and production, combining practical and theoretical aspects. It spans a wide spectrum of applications in the oil industry, crossing many discipline boundaries such as geophysics, geology, petrophysics and reservoir engineering. It is complemented... more...

  • Hydrocarbon Exploration & Productionby Frank Jahn

    Elsevier Science 1998; US$ 215.00

    This book on hydrocarbon exploration and production is the first volume in the series Developments in Petroleum Science. The chapters are: The Field Life Cycle, Exploration, Drilling Engineering, Safety and The Environment, Reservoir Description, Volumetric Estimation, Field Appraisal, Reservoir Dynamic Behaviour, Well Dynamic Behaviour, Surface Facilities,... more...

  • Improving the Exploration Process by Learning from the Pastby E.-J. Kittilsen; P. Alexander-Marrack; K. Ofstad

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 260.00

    Learning by experience is both a part of the daily life and the exploration life. A systematic review of the past is essential to improve the exploration process by better managing risks and uncertainties. Learning through different disciplines has become a favoured technique. With new tools for interpretation and simulation, integration and data and... more...

  • Seismic Amplitude Inversion in Reflection Tomographyby Y. Wang

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 125.00

    This is the first book of its kind on seismic amplitude inversion in the context of reflection tomography. The aim of the monograph is to advocate the use of ray-amplitude data, separately or jointly with traveltime data, in reflection seismic tomography. The emphasis of seismic exploration is on imaging techniques, so that seismic section can be... more...

  • Hydrocarbon Exploration & Productionby Frank Jahn; Mark Cook; Mark Graham

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 165.00

    Hydrocarbon Exploration and Production, Second Edition is a comprehensive and current introduction to the upstream industry, drawing together the many inter-disciplinary links within the industry. It presents all the major stages in the life of an oil or gas field, from gaining access to opportunity, through exploration, appraisal, development planning,... more...
