Cover for the book Petroleum Geology and Reservoirs

Well Service and Workover Series Lesson 2

In the petroleum industry, which finds and recovers oil and gas from deep within the earth’s crust, geology is fundamental. Petroleum occurs mostly in isolated, hard-to-find accumulations. The scientific study of the earth’s history and its life, especially as recorded in the rocks of the crust, reduces the risk of drilling dry holes and lowers the cost of production by helping determine the most efficient way of drilling a well. A knowledge of geology increases the total supply of petroleum by helping recover more of the resource in place.

This helpful training manual describes elementary geology and reservoir information as they pertain to petroleum. Topics include basic geologic concepts, sedimentary rocks, stratigraphy, oil and gas, exploration, drilling the well, and producing the reservoir. Readable language, clearly labeled illustrations and photographs, a glossary, and helpful self-test review questions help the reader to understand the material. ISBN 0-88698-156-5. 1992, 116 pp.
