The third edition has been completely rewritten to reflect the changing technologies in the industry and contains 20 chapters written by 44 authors. It continues to provide an overview of reservoir stimulation from an all-encompassing engineering standpoint. Reservoir Stimulation sets forth a rationalization of stimulation using reservoir engineering concepts, and addresses topics such as formation characterization, hydraulic fracturing and matrix acidizing. Formation damage, which refers to a loss in reservoir productivity, is also examined comprehensively.
This extensive reference work remains essential reading for petroleum industry professionals involved in the important activities of reservoir evaluation, development and management, who require invaluable skills in the application of the techniques described for the successful exploitation of oil and gas reservoirs. Contributors to this volume are recognized authorities in their individual technologies.
