Book Description

May 10 2001 0444506713 978-0444506719 1
This revised edition of the bestselling Practice of Reservoir Engineering has been written for those in the oil industry requiring a working knowledge of how the complex subject of hydrocarbon reservoir engineering can be applied in the field in a practical manner. Containing additions and corrections to the first edition, the book is a simple statement of how to do the job and is particularly suitable for reservoir/production engineers as well as those associated with hydrocarbon recovery.



This practical book approaches the basic limitations of reservoir engineering with the basic tenet of science: Occam's Razor, which applies to reservoir engineering to a greater extent than for most physical sciences - if there are two ways to account for a physical phenomenon, it is the simpler that is the more useful. Therefore, simplicity is the theme of this volume.

Reservoir and production engineers, geoscientists, petrophysicists, and those involved in the management of oil and gas fields will want this edition.

Geo Abstracts
Malcolm Pye
...This book tells you all you need to know about reservoir engineering. ...written with (a) wit and style. .. It's a practical book with special emphasis on the offshore, concerned with processes on the scale of "hillsides" not coreplugs. It begins with an introduction inspired by the absence of the word "reservoir" in Daniel Yergin's history of the oil industry, "The Prize". Armed only with Occam's Razor, Laurie tackles the observations, assumptions and calculations that underpin the subject while offering career advice en route - the best time to move jobs is when appraisal has finished and before development begins! ...Chapter 5 is Laurie's masterpiece, 150 pages on waterdrive which could be published as a book in its own right. Drawing on examples from the North Sea, "the biggest laboratory ever for the study of waterdrive" it demolishes the misconceptions that have grown up over relative permeability curves and stresses the importance of the fractional flow equation in understanding fluid displacement. The section on the effects of vertical permeability distributions on waterflooding should be required reading for every oil company geologist.

First Sentence
Reservoir engineering shares the distinction with geology in being one of the great "underground sciences" of the oil industry, attempting to describe what occurs in the wide open spaces of the reservoir between the sparse points of observation - the wells. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars A Goldmine of a Book Dec 16 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
One of the few true "must read" books in the field.
Mr. Dake's book is unique -- reading it is like working side-by-side with an exceptionally intelligent, erudite, experienced engineer. Despite the author's wry conversational style, this is not a light volume that can be absorbed by speed-reading. The author is sharing decades worth of real-world experience, and it merits close study.
For example, after all the thick volumes that have been written on oil well testing, who would expect that there could be anything left to say? Yet Dake's approach to well testing is eye-opening, and will certainly influence this engineer's approach to designing & interpreting well tests.
Experienced engineers may find themselves wanting to argue with some of the author's opinions & recommendations, but they will conclude that the time they invested in studying this book was well spent.

This book is all that one would expect from Dake, and more. The long awaited update bridges the gaps left as technology has moved on since the original publication. Unfortunately Laurie is no longer with us and this publication is one of many fitting and lasting legacies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Workable Handbook Oct. 24 2005
By Eddy Prayitno S. Ir - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Most books on Reservoir Engineering are very university-Academic oriented and its up to us field engineers to decide wether such theories are workable or not in actual practice.

The Practice is a book that might be ranked as a handbook for applicable usage, especially offshore where economics dictates most decision making.

By Pedro Luis Solorzano Reyes - Published on Amazon.com

Dake really were in his best moment to known something and wrote down, here you can find out the state of the art, even now at 2007 of how to do the things in reservoir engineering, planning, following, just read it, you do not loose nothing, always win.
