Practical Aspects of Heat Management Book (4th Edition)
This professional short course book ($95 USD) offered by Integrated Sciences Group includes a comprehensive review of steamflooding and cyclic steam processes, well completions and subsurface equipment, and reservoir heat management principles. Emphasis is given to practical methods and techniques that have been proven to be effective in improving the economic performance of actual steamflood and cyclic steam stimulation projects.
This book is designed for petroleum engineers, geologists, technical assistants and project team members responsible for diagnosing and optimizing the performance of steamflood and cyclic steam projects.
Table of Contents
Chapter 2 - Thermal EOR Fundamentals
Chapter 2 discusses steamflood and cyclic steam processes, well completions and subsurface equipment, and heat management principles.
Chapter 3 - Developing a Monitoring Program
Chapter 3 presents guidelines and procedures for developing both surface and subsurface monitoring programs.
Chapter 4 - Surface Distribution Optimization
Chapter 4 presents data analysis and interpretation concepts that are important in assessing how effectively the steam is distributed through surface piping networks.
Chapter 5 - Subsurface Heat Utilization
As a steamflood or cyclic steam project matures, modifications or adjustments to the operating strategy are often necessary to ensure optimum economic performance. Chapter 5 discusses methods for evaluating steamflood and cyclic steam projects and operational adjustments and modifications to both surface and subsurface equipment that can be implemented to achieve better steam utilization and improve oil production.
Ms. Suzanne Castrup has over thirty-five years of experience in heavy oil recovery and is currently President of Integrated Sciences Group. Since joining Integrated Sciences Group, she has developed several measurement science and petroleum engineering courses and provided engineering consulting services for monitoring and optimizing heavy oil projects in California, Canada and the Middle East. Prior to joining Integrated Sciences Group, Ms. Castrup was Technical Advisor for Thermally Enhanced Oil Recovery in Chevron’s Western Basins Group providing in-house consultation on all aspects of steamflood and cyclic steam project design, implementation and evaluation. She was also a Production/Reservoir Engineer, managing both cyclic steam stimulation and steamflood projects in several heavy oil properties in the San Joaquin Valley, and spent eleven years as a Research Engineer at Chevron Oil Field Research Center. She has published numerous technical papers and holds several patents relating to heavy oil recovery. She is a recipient of the 2007 SPE International Award for distinguished contributions to petroleum engineering projects, facilities and construction.
