Petroleum Engineer’s Guide to Oil Field Chemicals and Fluids (Second Edition)

File Size: 9.86 Mb

This manuscript is an extension and update from Oil Field Chemicals, which appeared in 2003. The text focuses mainly on the organic chemistry of oil field chemicals. As indicated by the title, preferably engineers with less background in organic chemistry will use this text. Therefore, various sketches of the chemicals and additional explanations and comments are included in the text to those an educated organic chemist is certainly familiar.

The material presented here is a compilation from the literature, including patents. The text is arranged in the order as needed by a typical job. It starts with drilling fluids and related applications, such as fluid loss, bit lubricants, etc. Then it crosses over to the next major topics, cementing, fracturing, enhanced recovery, and it ends with pipelines and spill.

Some of the chemicals are used in more than one main field. For example, surfactants are used in nearly all of the applications. The last three chapters are devoted to these chemicals. As environmental aspects are gaining increasing importance, this issue is also dealt carefully.
