This state-of-the-art guide presents a systematic methodology for applying thermodynamics principles in the many areas of the hydrocarbon energy industry
Thermodynamics and Applications in Hydrocarbon Energy Production lays out a unified view of classical thermodynamics and teaches how to effectively put those theories to work in fuel exploration, preparation, and refinement.
Shale gas and oil development is a relatively new subject in petroleum engineering and is the main focus of the U.S. energy industry-this book addresses these important issues. The use of thermodynamics in reservoir, transportation system, surface facility, and refinery development is covered in full detail. Advanced chapters explain leading-edge techniques, including molecular simulation.
- High-quality illustrations and tables are featured throughout
- Each chapter includes examples, theory extensions, and problems
- Provides practical solutions to key engineering problems
- Written by a world-renowned petroleum reservoir engineering expert
