This book provides the reader with: • a comprehensive description of engineering activities carried out on oil & gas projects, • a description of the work of each engineering discipline, including illustrations of all common documents, • an overall view of the plant design sequence and schedule, • practical tools to manage and control engineering activities. This book is designed to serve as a map to anyone involved with engineering activities. It enables the reader to get immediately oriented in any engineering development, to know which are the critical areas to monitor and the proven methods to apply. It will fulfill the needs of anyone wishing to improve engineering and project execution. Table des matières : 1. Project Engineering. 2. The Design Basis. 3. Process. 4. Equipment/Mechanical. 5.

The purpose of this book is to provide some understanding and guidelines on the way medium sized and large Projects in an international environment can be initiated and managed. Its content is based on the collective experience of the authors obtained during the last forty years with an International Oil & Gas Company, with the rest spent with engineering and construction contractors.
The seventh edition of the Drilling Data Handbook was published in 1999. We are in a new communication techniques have considerably evolved. The electronic hardware and soft communication anywhere in the world, access to huge databases, as well as permanent documents required by the drilling personnel. At the moment of making a decision about Drilling Data Handbook, the question was: is it pertinent to do an electronic version on accessible one with a connection to different sites, or to keep the popular concept of the people have been using it for decades? The Internet gives access to an infinite volume everybody has experimented the trouble of being lost in the way, or the difficulty to read information. The Drilling Data Handbook does not want to compete with the web sites on other sources of electronic documentation. The main goal of our contribution to the drill access very quickly and without any additional resources to the fundamental data at the floor. That is the reason why we made the decision to present you this reviewed and up the formula you are familiar with, and we hope that it will continue to help you when play well.
Annotation The goal of this book is to highlight the difference between an integrated reservoir study and a traditional one. The benefits of integrated studies are outlined, and consider its implications for everyday working conditions. Technical and professional challenges are discussed and necessary changes are detailed, with emphasis on the role of the project leader. Chapters consider elements like the integrated database, the integrated geological model, rock properties, hydrocarbon in place determination, reservoir engineering, numerical reservoir simulation, and planning for a study. Cosentino is a reservoir engineer and project manager for a private firm. c. Book News Inc.
This book examines and explains techniques for development drilling through directional wells. It has been written by operating company field engineers assisted by drilling consultants. Illustrations show how measuring and guidance devices work, and general procedures and recommendations for equipment are given for each deviation method. Intended for drilling engineers and supervisors in charge of development operations involving deviated wells, the book may be profitably consulted by project and design engineers working in well siting.Contents: I. Introduction to directional drilling. II. Recommendations for working out a directional drilling plan. III. Directional surveying. IV. Directional drilling practice. Index.
This volume describes the characteristics of processes used in petroleum refining: upgrading light fractions (reforming and isomerization), converting distillates (catalytic cracking, hydrocracking, and associated equipment), converting residues (visbreaking, coking hydroconversion), and reducing air and water pollution (white product sweetening, acid gas, stack gas, and waste water treatment). This book is available in French Under the title "le raffinage du pétrole. Tome 3. Procédés de transformation". Contents : 1. Introduction. 2. Basic principles governing chemical changes. 3. Industrial catalysts. 4. Catalytic reforming. 5. Catalytic cracking. 6. Isomerization of light paraffins. 7. Aliphatic alkylation. 8. Olefin etherification. 9. Oligomerization. 10. Hydrocracking. 11. Visbreaking of residues. 12. Coking. 13. Residue hydroconversion. 14. Hydrogen production. 15. White products refining by sweetening. 16. Hydrotreating. 17. Acid gas treatment. 18. Desulfurization of stack gases. 19. Water treatment. References. Index.
