Petroleum Engineering Handbook, Volume II: Drilling Engineering
The Petroleum Engineering Handbook has long been recognized as a valuable, comprehensive reference book that offers practical day-to-day applications for students and experienced engineering professionals alike. This new edition, the first since 1987, has been greatly expanded and consists of seven volumes. Editor-in-Chief: Larry W. Lake
Drilling technology has evolved substantially over the years, from slide rules and hand calculations to advanced computer science and numerical analysis. This volume, the first drilling content to be included in the Petroleum Engineering Handbook, is intended to provide a snapshot of the drilling state of the art at the beginning of the 21st century.
