The Physics of Reservoir Fluids: Discovery Through Downhole Fluid Analysis

Oliver C. Mullins

This 184-page softcover book delivers a comprehensive discussion on downhole fluid analysis (DFA), which uses optical spectroscopy to obtain results instead of the traditional separation methods of PVT laboratories. The first half of the book, designed for the asset manager as well as the technical expert, follows the development of this relatively new technology beyond its initial objective of validating openhole wireline samples to its present role in determining compositional variations and reservoir compartmentalization. The second half of the book, written for the technologist, establishes the scientific foundations of optical DFA measurements.
