  • This is an expanded version of a book on carbonate deposits published originally in French. Some examples of case histories of carbonate deposits in North America have been added. The material is divided into 3 chapters entitled: Depositional Environments and Geometry of Carbonate Deposits, Carbonate Reservoir Rocks, and Case Histories of Carbonate Reservoirs. Separate abstracts have been prepared for each of the 3 chapters. (BLM)
  • An expanded version of the classic French book on carbonate deposits, covering the basic concepts of environmental interpretation, creation and destruction of porosity in carbonates, and the occurrence of reservoirs in carbonate sequences is presented. Twelve examples provide interpretations of carbonate sequences containing important reservoirs or that have good reservoir potential.
  • This guide explains and then illustrates a variety of techniques for use in carbonate reservoir settings, and then offers seven case studies from different ages and areas to showcase the methods.
  • This is a condensed version of the highly technical subject of secondary recovery of oil from its natural reservoirs. The basic principles of secondary oil recovery by water and gas injection--and also to some extent of tertiary recovery techniques--by miscible drive and by thermal processes (both steam injection and in situ combustion) are reviewed briefly. A major and valuable feature is the extensive treatment of predictive techniques for different secondary recovery methods, and hence the book will be a most valuable text and handbook for practicing reservoir engineers and a useful textbook for students in petroleum engineering schools.
  • This book enables petroleum reservoir engineers to predict the flow of fluids within a hydrocarbon deposit. Laboratory techniques are described for both steady-state and unsteady state measurements, and the calculation of relative permeability from field data is illustrated. A discussion of techniques for determing wettability is included, along with theoretical and empirical methods for the calculation of relative permeability, and prediction techniques. Contents include: Measurement of Rock Relative Permeability; Two-Phase Relative Permeability; Factors Affecting Two-Phase Relative Permeability; Three-Phase Relative Permeability; and Index.
