Petroleum engineering now has its own true classic handbook that reflects the profession's status as a mature major engineering discipline. Formerly titled the Practical Petroleum Engineer's Handbook, by Joseph Zaba and W.T. Doherty (editors), this new, completely updated two-volume set is expanded and revised to give petroleum engineers a comprehensive source of industry standards and engineering practices. It is packed with the key, practical information and data that petroleum engineers rely upon daily. The result of a fifteen-year effort, this handbook covers the gamut of oil and gas engineering topics to provide a reliable source of engineering and reference information for analyzing and solving problems. It also reflects the growing role of natural gas in industrial development by integrating natural gas topics throughout both volumes. More than a dozen leading industry experts-academia and industry-contributed to this two-volume set to provide the best , most comprehensive source of petroleum engineering information available.
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.
