Petroleum Engineering Handbook, Volume VI: Emerging and Peripheral Technologies
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
The chapters in this volume cover technologies that have come to the forefront of the industry in the past 20 years. The book describes unique developments that are on the “periphery” of the areas covered in the first five volumes or in emerging areas of technology.
