Low-Energy Processes for Unconventional Oil Recovery
Mohammad Reza Fassihi and Tony Kovscek
Low-Energy Processes for Unconventional Oil Recovery addresses reservoir engineering, low-energy recovery processes, and resource access challenges for abundant unconventional oil. This includes bitumen, shale, heavy, and viscous oil.
Data-Driven Reservoir Modeling
Shahab D. Mohaghegh
Data-Driven Reservoir Modeling introduces new technology and intelligent systems for applying data analytics to solve real-world reservoir engineering problems. Through data manipulation via artificial intelligence, the reader learns how to exploit imprecision and uncertainty to achieve robust, low-cost, and effective solutions.
Reservoir Conformance Improvement
Robert D. Sydansk and Laura Romero-Zeron
Reservoir Conformance Improvement brings together the topics of conformance problems and conformance-improvement techniques; correct application of conformance-improvement techniques can lead to greatly improved oil recovery from conventional oil reservoirs.
