From the Publisher

The latest edition of this best-selling title is updated and expanded for easier use by engineers. New to this edition is a section on the fundamentals of surface production operations taking up topics from the oilfield as originally planned by the authors in the first edition. This information is necessary and endemic to production and process engineers. Now, the book offers a truly complete picture of surface production operations, from the production stage to the process stage with applications to process and production engineers.

· New in-depth coverage of hydrocarbon characteristics, the different kinds of reservoirs, and impurities in crude.
· Practical suggestions help readers understand the art and science of handling produced liquids.
· Numerous, easy-to-read figures, charts, tables, and photos clearly explain how to design, specify, and operate oilfield surface production facilities.

Why the Oil Glut Isn’t Gone Yet

Javier Blas A year ago, Saudi Arabia’s then-energy minister, Ali Naimi, had harsh words for U.S. shale drillers struggling with the worst price crash in a generation. “Lower costs, borrow cash, or liquidate,” he said at the 2016 CERAWeek, the giant energy conference held annually in Houston. The mood of the U.S. oil industry was far more upbeat in early March as executives, bankers, and investors met again in Texas. Drillers who’ve survived have largely taken the first part of Naimi’s advice. While more than 100 shale producers have gone bankrupt since the start of 2015, the remaining compan

Despite Cheap Crude Prices, America’s Best Oil Field, Texas’ Permian Basin, Is Thriving

Alex Nussbaum Although cheap oil has forced frackers to shut down drilling rigs across large swaths of the U.S. shale patch, from the Bakken fields of North Dakota to the Eagle Ford in South Texas, there’s one region where the profits are still flowing. The Permian Basin, a 75,000-square-mile patch of scrubby desert stretching across West Texas and into New Mexico, has emerged as the most resilient oil field in America. Overall crude production in the U.S. is down by about a million barrels a day over the past 12 months, but output from the Permian continues to grow. All signs indicate that t

Finally, Some Good News for Shipyards

Kyunghee Park, with DanMurtaugh • Demand for vessels to transport natural gas is expected to jump • “Gas is going to be the bright spot for shipbuilders” The global shipyard business has fallen on hard times as China’s trade has grown more slowly and demand for offshore drilling platforms and oil tankers has declined with the halving of oil prices in the past three years. Shipbuilders cut more than 20,000 jobs in the last year alone. But now builders of oceangoing vessels are seeing a glimmer of hope from an unlikely corner of the energy world: natural gas. Contracts for vessels to transpo
