Preface
The primary focus of this book is to present the basic physics of reservoir engineering using the simplest and most straightforward ofmathematical techniques. It is only through having a complete understanding of physics of reservoir engineering that the engineer can hope to solve complex reservoir problems in a practical manner. The book is arranged so that it can be used as a textbook for senior and graduate students or as a reference book for practicing engineers. Chapter 1 describes the theory and practice of well testing and pressureanalysis techniques, which is probably one of the most important subjects in reservoir engineering. Chapter 2 discusses various water-influx models along with detailed descriptions of the computational steps involved in applying these models. Chapter 3 presents the mathematical treatment of unconventional gas reservoirs that include abnormally-pressured reservoirs, coalbed methane, tight gas, gashydrates, and shallow gas reservoirs. Chapter 4 covers the basic principle oil recovery mechanisms and the various forms of the material balance equation. Chapter 5 focuses on illustrating the practical application of the MBE in predicting the oil reservoir performance under different scenarios of driving mechanisms. Fundamentals of oil field economics are discussed in Chapter 6. Tarek Ahmed andPaul D. McKinney
