The Definitive Guide to Petroleum Reservoir Engineering–Now Fully Updated to Reflect New Technologies and Easier Calculation Methods


Craft and Hawkins’ classic introduction to petroleum reservoir engineering is now fully updated for new technologies and methods, preparing students and practitioners to succeed in the modern industry. In Applied Petroleum Reservoir Engineering, Third Edition, renowned expert Ronald E. Terry and project engineer J. Brandon Rogers review the history of reservoir engineering, define key terms, carefully introduce the material balance approach, and show how to apply it with many types of reservoirs.


Next, they introduce key principles of fluid flow, water influx, and advanced recovery (including hydrofracturing). Throughout, they present field examples demonstrating the use of material balance and history matching to predict reservoir performance. For the first time, this edition relies on Microsoft Excel with VBA to make calculations easier and more intuitive.


This edition features

  • Extensive updates to reflect modern practices and technologies, including gas condensate reservoirs, water flooding, and enhanced oil recovery
  • Clearer, more complete introductions to vocabulary and concepts– including a more extensive glossary
  • Several complete application examples, including single-phase gas, gas-condensate, undersaturated oil, and saturated oil reservoirs
  • Calculation examples using Microsoft Excel with VBA throughout
  • Many new example and practice problems using actual well data
  • A revamped history-matching case study project that integrates key topics and asks readers to predict future well production


Author Biography

Ronald E. Terry worked at Phillips Petroleum researching enhanced oil recovery processes.  He taught Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Kansas, Petroleum Engineering at the University of Wyoming where he wrote the second edition of this text, and Chemical Engineering and Technology and Engineering Education at Brigham Young University where he co-wrote the third edition of this text. He received teaching awards at all three universities and served as acting department chair, associate dean, and in BYU’s central administration as an Associate in the Office of Planning and Assessment. He is past president of the Rocky Mountain Section of the American Society for Engineering Education.


J. Brandon Rogers studied Chemical Engineering at Brigham Young University where he studied Reservoir Engineering using the second edition of this text. After graduation, he accepted a position at Murphy Oil Corporation as a Project Engineer during which time he cowrote the third edition of this text.
