Computational Methods for Multiphase Flows in Porous Media
This book offers a fundamental and practical introduction to the use of computational methods, particularly finite element methods, in the simulation of fluid flows in porous media. It is the first book to cover a wide variety of flows, including single-phase, two-phase, black oil, volatile, compositional, nonisothermal, and chemical compositional flows in both ordinary porous and fractured porous media. In addition, a range of computational methods are used, and benchmark problems of nine comparative solution projects organized by the Society of Petroleum Engineers are presented for the first time in book form. Computational Methods for Multiphase Flows in Porous Media reviews multiphase flow equations and computational methods to introduce basic terminologies and notation. A thorough discussion of practical aspects of the subject is presented in a consistent manner, and the level of treatment is rigorous without being unnecessarily abstract. Each chapter ends with bibliographic information and exercises.
Petrophysics: Theory and Practice of Measuring Reservoir Rock and Fluid Transport Properties By Tiab
The petroleum geologist and engineer must have a working knowledge of petrophysics in order to find oil reservoirs, devise the best plan for getting it out of the ground, then start drilling. This book offers the engineer and geologist a manual to accomplish these goals, providing much-needed calculations and formulas on fluid flow, rock properties, and many other topics that are encountered every day. New updated material covers topics that have emerged in the petrochemical industry since 1997.
Basic Applied Reservoir Simulation By T. Ertekin
Reservoir engineers benefit from a good understanding of reservoir simulation. While most engineers rely on commercial software packages for the calculations, it can be impossible to evaluate the validity of results without a solid foundation in the underlying principles. This textbook provides comprehensive coverage of simulation. It begins with the fundamentals of numerical simulation, moving to field applications and more complex topics. Each chapter includes a project section that relates to the implementation of the topics discussed in that chapter. Includes 157 solved examples and 178 exercises.
Contents: Basic reservoir-engineering concepts and reservoir-fluid and –rock properties • Basic mathematical concepts • Formulation of basic equations for single-phase flow • Finite-difference approximation to linear-flow equations • Well representation • Solution of linear difference equations • Numerical solution of single-phase-flow equations • Multiphase-flow simulation in petroleum reservoirs • Practical aspects of reservoir simulation • Relationships between numerical reservoir simulation and classical reservoir engineering approaches
Fractured Petroleum Reservoirs By Firoozabadi
The four chapters that are described in this report cover a variety of subjects that not only give insight into the understanding of multiphase flow in fractured porous media but they provide also major contribution towards the understanding of flow processes with in-situ phase formation. This report was prepared as an account of work sponsored by an agency of the United States Government.

Fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering By L.P. Dake
"This book is fast becoming the standard text in its field", wrote a reviewer in the Journal of Canadian Petroleum Technology soon after the first appearance of Dake's book. This prediction quickly came true: it has become the standard text and has been reprinted many times. The author's aim - to provide students and teachers with a coherent account of the basic physics of reservoir engineering - has been most successfully achieved. No prior knowledge of reservoir engineering is necessary. The material is dealt with in a concise, unified and applied manner, and only the simplest and most straightforward mathematical techniques are used. This low-priced paperback edition will continue to be an invaluable teaching aid for years to come.

Immiscible Displacement. Indexes. Exercises.
Enhanced Oil Recovery By Don W. Green and G. Paul Willhite
This textbook describes technologies that can be applied to recover oil that cannot be produced by primary recovery or waterflooding. These technologies include polymer, micellar-polymer, and CO2 flooding, as well as thermal-recovery processes that are typically implemented following primary production. A prior understanding of basic petrophysics, fluid properties, and material balances is recommended.

PVT and Phase Behavior of Petroleum Reservoir Fluids By Ali Danesh
This book on PVT and Phase Behaviour Of Petroleum Reservoir Fluids is volume 47 in the Developments in Petroleum Science series. The chapters in the book are: Phase Behaviour

Product Description by Dake, Reservoir Engineer, August 1998:
...Sometimes a book demands to be written. One of the best examples of this is the first SPE monograph of Pressure Buildup and Glow Tests and Wells. (1966), Matthews and Russell, which collected and collated, for the first time, the theories on well testing postulated in myriad papers on the subject since the 1940s. I believe the Dr. Danesh has satisfied a similar demand with his authoritative book on PVT / Phase behaviour. Such a modern compilation of all the developments in these complex subjects is long overdue and the book is thorough and thoughtfully written by an expert in these subjects.
...The chapters include a review of basic thermodynamics and classification of hydrocarbon systems, fluid sampling and laboratory experiments, correlations of PVT properties (which we all rely upon), phase equilibria and equations of state for complex hydrocarbon systems, gas injection and, of particular importance, how to input PVT data to compositional numerical simulation models.
Dr. Danesh's book is one that will travel with me everywhere in my suitcase.
