This is the first comprehensive book-length treatment of the economical extraction of valuable hydrocarbons from porous media. Major subjects include determination of oil-in-place, permeability
concepts, flood patterns and coverage, immiscible fluid displacement mechanisms, injection rates and pressures, gas injection-immiscible displacement, miscible fluid displacement, in situ combustion, and heat injection
methods. The book is ideally suited for petroleum engineers, geologists, geophysicists, and schools giving courses in petroleum recovery and reservoir engineering.
