Properties of Reservoir Rocks: Core Analysis

Authors : MONICARD Robert P.


ISBN : 9782710803874
trade paperback      170 x 240 mm     
Publication date : 1980

This book describes porous media and how their physical, petrophysical, mechanical, electric and superficial properties are determined. The different measuring methods and the corresponding equipment are described. Core analysis (conventional or special) required for any reservoir engineering operation or for using mathematical models is explained. Analyses of sidewall cores and whole cores are also described in detail. Actual core-analysis examples are given. The book will be invaluable for engineers and technicians in laboratories dealing with the physico-chemistry of hydrocarbon fields and the hydrology of underground nappes. Specialists in reservoir engineering will also find the book particularly useful.


This book is available in French under the title "Caractéristiques des roches réservoirs. Analyse des carottes", see "Cours de Production".
