Petroleum Well Construction Michael J. Economides Texas A & M University Larry T. Watters Halliburton Energy Services Shari Dunn-Norman University of Missouri-Rolla Since the 1980s, well construction procedures have advanced so significantly that the subject now requires a comprehensive reference book dealing with all types of petroleum drilling and well completions. With each chapter co-authored by recognized industry professionals, this extensive work fills the void that currently exists in the technical reference publications of this subject. All technical aspects of petroleum well construction are covered, including:
* drilling trajectory and control
* multilateral wells
* borehole stability
* gas migration
* inflow performance
resulting in an essential reference tool for all petroleum, nuclear and environmental engineers and technicians.
