Production Gauging Principles & Methods Book (4th Edition)
This professional short course book ($95 USD) offered by Integrated Sciences Group covers the basic well gauging principles and methods used to monitor heavy oil production from steamflood and cyclic steam projects. A comprehensive review of production gauging fundamentals, including phase separation efficiency, water cut measurement, flow rate measurement and assessment of gauging accuracy is presented.
This book is designed for facility, reservoir, and production engineers currently responsible for the design, implementation, operation and management of steamflood or cyclic steam stimulation projects. However, the contents of this book are also beneficial for other technical personnel involved in the monitoring and evaluation of steamflood or cyclic steam stimulation projects.
