SpringerBriefs in Petroleum Geoscience & Engineering


The SpringerBriefs series in Petroleum Geoscience & Engineering promotes and expedites the dissemination of substantive new research results, state-of-the-art subject reviews and tutorial overviews in the field of petroleum exploration, petroleum engineering and production technology. The subject focus is on upstream exploration and production, subsurface geoscience and engineering. These concise summaries (50-125 pages) will include cutting-edge research, analytical methods, advanced modelling techniques and practical applications. Coverage will extend to all theoretical and applied aspects of the field, including traditional drilling, shale-gas fracking, deepwater sedimentology, seismic exploration, pore-flow modelling and petroleum economics. Topics include but are not limited to:

•             Petroleum Geology & Geophysics

•             Exploration: Conventional and Unconventional

•             Seismic Interpretation

•             Formation Evaluation (well logging)

•             Drilling and Completion

•             Hydraulic Fracturing

•             Geomechanics

•             Reservoir Simulation and Modelling

•             Flow in Porous Media: from nano- to field-scale

•             Reservoir Engineering

•             Production Engineering

•             Well Engineering; Design, Decommissioning and Abandonment 

•             Petroleum Systems; Instrumentation and Control

•             Flow Assurance, Mineral Scale & Hydrates

•             Reservoir and Well Intervention

•             Reservoir Stimulation

•             Oilfield Chemistry

•             Risk and Uncertainty

•             Petroleum Economics and Energy Policy
