  • Formation Testingby Wilson C. Chin; Yanmin Zhou; Yongren Feng; Qiang Yu; Lixin Zhao

    Wiley 2014; US$ 206.95 US$ 179.36

    Traditional well logging methods, such as  resistivity, acoustic, nuclear and NMR, provide indirect information related to fluid and formation properties.  The “formation tester,” offered in wireline and MWD/LWD operations, is different.  It collects actual downhole fluid samples for surface analysis, and through pressure... more...

  • Measurement While Drilling (MWD) Signal Analysis, Optimization and Designby Wilson C. Chin; Yinao Su; Limin Sheng; Lin Li; Hailong Bian; Rong Shi

    Wiley 2014; US$ 200.95 US$ 174.16

    Trade magazines and review articles describe MWD in casual terms, e.g., positive versus negative pulsers, continuous wave systems, drilling channel noise and attenuation, in very simple terms absent of technical rigor.  However, few truly scientific discussions are available on existing methods, let alone the advances necessary for high-data-rate... more...

  • Wave Propagation in Drilling, Well Logging and Reservoir Applicationsby Wilson C. Chin

    Wiley 2014; US$ 200.95 US$ 174.16

    Wave propagation is central to all areas of petroleum engineering, e.g., drilling vibrations, MWD mud pulse telemetry, swab-surge, geophysical ray tracing, ocean and current interactions, electromagnetic wave and sonic applications in the borehole, but rarely treated rigorously or described in truly scientific terms, even for a single discipline.... more...

  • Carbonate Reservoir Rocksby Ksenia I. Bagrintseva

    Wiley 2015; US$ 225.00 US$ 195.00

    Most of the world’s energy still comes from fossil fuels, and there are still many strides being made in the efficiency and cost effectiveness of extracting these important and increasingly more elusive natural resources.  This is only possible if the nature of the emergence, evolution, and parameter estimation of high grade reservoir rocks... more...

  • Green Petroleumby M. R. Islam; A. B. Chhetri; M. M. Khan

    Wiley 2012; US$ 165.00 US$ 143.00

    Can "green petroleum" reverse global warming and bring down high gasoline prices?  Written in non-technical language for the layperson, this book investigates and details how the oil and gas industry can "go green" with new processes and technologies, thus bringing the world's most important industry closer to environmental and economic sustainability.... more...

  • Natural Gas Information 2012: With 2011 Databy International Energy Agency; Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

    OECD Publishing 2012; US$ 231.00

    A detailed reference work on gas supply and demand covering not only the OECD countries but also the rest of the world, this publication contains essential information on LNG and pipeline trade, gas reserves, storage capacity and prices. The main part of the book, however, concentrates on OECD countries, showing a detailed supply and demand balance... more...

  • Diamonds in the Roughby James Sanders Day

    University of Alabama Press 2013; US$ 34.95

    Diamonds in the Rough reconstructs the historical moment that defined the Cahaba Coal Field, a mineral-rich area that stretches across sixty-seven miles and four counties of central Alabama.   Combining existing written sources with oral accounts and personal recollections, James Sanders Day?s Diamonds in the Rough describes the numerous... more...

  • Oilby Gavin Bridge; Philippe Le Billon

    Wiley 2013; US$ 19.95 US$ 17.29

    Oil pulses through our daily lives. It is the plastic we touch, the food we eat, and the way we move. Oil politics in the twentieth century was about the management of abundance, state power and market growth. The legacy of this age of plenty includes declining conventional oil reserves, volatile prices, climate change, and enduring poverty in many... more...

  • The Gypsum Construction Handbookby USG

    Wiley 2014; US$ 45.00 US$ 39.00

    The tried-and-true Gypsum Construction Handbook is a systematic guide to selecting and using gypsum drywall, veneer plaster, tile backers, ceilings, and conventional plaster building materials. A widely respected training text for aspiring architects and engineers, the book provides detailed product information and efficient installation methodology.... more...

  • Water-Based Chemicals and Technology for Drilling, Completion, and Workover Fluidsby Johannes Fink

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 120.00

    Oil and gas engineers today use three main factors in deciding drilling fluids: cost, performance, and environmental impact, making water-based products a much more attractive option. Water-Based Chemicals and Technology for Drilling, Completion, and Workover Fluids effectively delivers all the background and infrastructure needed for an oil and... more...
