Petroleum Technology

edited by Subrata Borgohain Gogoi

Advances in Petroleum Technology is a book suitable for researchers, students, academicians and oilfield personnel who are interested in knowing the progress in basic and applied research work on various topics in petroleum engineering, ranging from developments in petroleum geology, drilling fluids and produced water treatment and re-injection to flow assurance issues, enhanced oil recovery techniques with carbon dioxide, surfactants and microemulsions. I am confident that the results presented in the book will be useful for field applications, too.

An impending energy crisis is looming all over the world, which has led to the use of effluents from paper mills for enhanced oil recovery (EOR), CO2 flooding and wastewater treatment by biosurfactants, and the current market demand for cost-competitive and environment-friendly alternatives to synthetic chemicals. This most up-to-date book on petroleum technology provides a comprehensive review of the background and recent advances in the field of petroleum technology and highlights various facets of the fascinating world of upstream, midstream, and downstream petroleum technologies. It comprises 15 chapters, each representing the progress, prospects, and challenges in petroleum research, and focuses on the tremendous progress made by the scientific community in this research field. The book covers in detail EOR processes, reservoir engineering, production operation and optimization, drilling and completion technologies, pipeline transportation and storage, CO2 capture and sequestration, utilization and storage of hydrocarbons, petroleum geology, wastewater management and innovative treatment, petrochemicals and polymers, refining technologies, environmental chemistry, and biochemistry and biotechnology for the petroleum industry.

Key Features:

  • Most up-to-date book on petroleum technology
  • Highlights the tremendous progress made by the scientific community in this field of research
  • Critically analyzes the lacuna to improve the commercial prospects of upstream, midstream, and downstream petroleum technologies by resorting to novel screening methods and innovative process development and application strategies
