Abstract: Petrophysics: Theory and Practice of Measuring Reservoir Rock and Fluid Transport Properties, Fourth Edition provides users with tactics that will help them understand rock-fluid interaction, a fundamental step that is necessary for all reservoir engineers to grasp in order to achieve the highest reservoir performance. The book brings the most comprehensive coverage on the subject matter, and is the only training tool for all reservoir and production engineers entering the oil and gas industry. This latest edition is enhanced with new real-world case studies, the latest advances in reservoir characterization, and a new chapter covering unconventional oil and gas reservoirs, including coverage on production techniques, reservoir characteristics, and the petrophysical properties of tight gas sands from NMR logs.Strengthened with a new chapter on shale oil and gas, adding the latest technological advances in the field todayCovers topics relating to porous media, permeability, fluid saturation, well logs, Dykstra-Parson, capillary pressure, wettability, Darcy's law, Hooke's law, reservoir characterization, filter-cake, and moreUpdated with relevant practical case studies to enhance on the job trainingContinues its longstanding, 20-year history as the leading book on petrophysics

Abstract: Oil exploration and production actively began 100 years ago, from the present day. What we see now, known as primary production by natural flowing of oil by pumped wells. This covers 15% of oil recovery from reservoir. Later 25% of oil is recovered by water flooding is activated which is termed as secondary production. There is still significant oil left in the reservoir, if there is no proper employment of commercial valuable techniques for the production, the oilwell would simply be abandoned. But as the demand for oil kept raising new techniques emerged, eventually from those EOR was a successful in artificial up lifting of oil from the reservoir by providing enough pressure to the trapped oil to flow out of well. It is a tertiary production. EOR is different because it works from microscopic levels as well as by injecting the substances like gases, special liquid (polymers) and stream in the form of injection through injecting wells for oil recovery, which is termed as Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR). The flooding in EOR, categorized as chemical flooding (by chemicals), stream or thermal injection (by stream) and miscible gas drive (CO2, N2 and LPG). These flooding will alter the physical and chemical properties of reservoirs for the flow of oil out of the well. EOR can unlock a percentage of 30-45% of trapped oil. After naming as successful technique in onshore for tertiary production, research is still going to implement EOR in offshore, to improve tertiary production and exploit hidden billion barrels of oil.
