By Ekwere J. Peters

A pragmatic, fast moving method of educating the innovations and difficulties universal in petroleum engineering that might attract a variety of disciplines Petrophysics is the examine of rock homes and their interactions with fluids, together with gases, liquid hydrocarbons, and aqueous options. This three-volume sequence from exceptional college of Texas professor Dr. Ekwere J. Peters offers a uncomplicated knowing of the actual homes of permeable geologic rocks and the interactions of a few of the fluids with their interstitial surfaces, with designated specialise in the delivery homes of rocks for single-phase and multiphase circulate.

Ecological economics: an introduction

Ecological economics is an exhilarating interdisciplinary box of analysis that mixes insights from the common sciences, economics, philosophy and different fields to boost leading edge ways to environmental difficulties. It attracts on quite a lot of analytical views, a few radical others extra traditional, to construct a extra whole figuring out of human-ecosystem interactions.

Managing outdoor recreation : case studies in the national parks

This absolutely up to date moment variation provides a conceptual framework of outside activity administration within the kind of a chain of administration matrices. It then illustrates this framework via new and up-to-date case stories in US nationwide parks and concludes with the rules of out of doors game administration.

Krill: Biology, Ecology and Fisheries

Krill, or euphausiids, a gaggle of vast significance in marine ecosystems, includes over eighty species, so much of that are planktonic. Krill are frequent with species to be present in all of the oceans of the area. Their numerical density in a few areas raises their value to marine ecosystems and has ended in commercially winning krill harvesting.


The college of Texas procedure Board of Regents licensed Dr. Ekwere J. Peters as a professor emeritus. within the 85-year historical past of UT PGE merely 5 different professors have obtained the celebrated identify: Folkert Brons, Sylvain Pirson, Harry H. strength, Ben H. Caudle and Robert (Bob) Schechter. Peters retired in 2011 after 30 years of engaging in cutting edge study and ideal instructing at UT PGE, leaving his mark on generations of engineers.

Example text

Deep offshore technologies have improved greatly since the early 1970s when offshore production in the North Sea took place at depths near 200 m. Today, it is possible to exploit reservoirs located at depths reaching 2000 m (Gulf of Mexico, Angola, west coast of Africa). The world’s largest offshore drilling rig is Troll, located in the Norwegian part of the North Sea. In 1999, it provided 15 Gm3 of natural gas to France (about 40% of its consumption). The gas is transported by an 840-km underwater pipeline connecting the Norwegian reservoirs of Sleipner and Troll to France.

The latter was often dispelled by being burned in a flare stack. This was wasteful but better than releasing natural gas into the atmosphere since the greenhouse effect of methane is greater than that of carbon dioxide. Currently, natural gas is a valued resource and the world demand for natural gas is increasing faster than the demand for oil. Energy companies are therefore eager to find new gas reservoirs. Finding hydrocarbons is a hard job. Before a well which may cost millions of dollars is drilled, it is important to be convinced that the probability of finding oil or gas is large.

Because oil reservoirs can extend over large areas, many oil wells are drilled to exploit a given field. 7. World’s top 10 oil fields with largest production and years of discovery. Data from Simmons & Company International and J. L. Wingert, La vie après le pétrole, Autrement, 2005. There are more than 40,000 oil fields around the world but most of them are small ones. Some are on land, others offshore. About 40% of the global petroleum reserves are located in more than 900 giant oil and gas fields clustered in 27 regions located mainly in the Persian Gulf and in the Western Siberian basin.
