Flow Assurance Solids in Oil and Gas Production (Hardback)Jon Steinar Gudmundsson (author)
- We can order this
The book is intended for professional engineers and natural scientist working in E&P companies, engineering companies, service companies and specialized companies. An understanding of the big-five solids is required throughout the lifetime of oil and gas assets, from early development to abandonment. The technical, safety and environmental risks associated with deposition problems in near-wellbore formations, production tubing, wellhead equipment, flowlines and processing facilities, are relevant for decisions in the oil and gas industry and in outside regulatory and financial entities.

"The impact of solids on the production of oil and gas resources is varied and profound. Yet it has been hard to find a comprehensive book that describes their properties, behavior and consequences. This book is laid out very usefully, in the important oilfield solids each have their own chapter dedicated to their properties and impact. The reader is not burdened with too much theory or fundamentals in those chapters, yet the details of the theory and fundamentals are all covered in the appendices for those who choose to delve deeper."
Roland N. Horne, Professor of Petroleum Engineering at Stanford University, USA.
"Congratulations to Professor Gudmundsson with this comprehensive new flow assurance book. Flow assurance is a key petroleum engineering challenge to understand, model, predict and mitigate or eliminate to the maximum extent unless you want initially open pipelines and flowlines to turn into `candle lights' through which nothing flows or into closed-up reservoirs in the near well-bore region. Everything else in a field development can be perfect; if you get flow assurance wrong, the total reservoir `plumbing system' may be nothing like you thought and expensive retro-fits can be expensive at best."
Dr. Helge H. Haldorsen, 2015 President of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
