Now, Craft and Hawkins's classic introduction to petroleum reservoir engineering has been fully updated to reflect modern methods. Internationally respected expert Ronald E. Terry and J. Brandon Rogers thoroughly introduce the material balance approach, preparing both students and practitioners to understand and succeed in the field of petroleum reservoir engineering. The authors begin by introducing the history of reservoir engineering and defining key terms. Next, they explain the material balance approach in depth, and demonstrate its application to single-phase gas, gas-condensate, undersaturated oil, and saturated oil reservoirs. With this foundation in place, they turn to the principles of fluid flow, water influx, and advanced recovery (including a basic introduction to hydrofracturing). The authors conclude by integrating the book's key topics in a revamped history matching exercise that asks students to match the production of wells and predict future production from those wells. Like preceding editions, this book presents many real field examples demonstrating the use of material balance and history matching to predict reservoir performance. For the first time, this edition uses Microsoft Excel with VBA as its calculation tool, making calculations far easier and more intuitive for today's readers.
