Hydraulic Fracturing and Well Stimulation – eBook PDF
Hydraulic fracturing (or “fracking”) has been a cause of both achievement and controversy for years, and it stays to be a hot-button issue all around the globe. It has made the US an energy-exporting country once again and kept the cost of gasoline low, for consumers and companies. However, it has been potentially a dangerous and destructive practice that has led to ecological problems and health issues. It is a deeply important topic for petroleum engineers to explore as much as possible.
Hydraulic Fracturing and Well Stimulation (PDF) is the first in the series, Sustainable Energy Engineering, tackling this very complicated process of hydraulic fracturing and its environmental and economic ramifications. Born out of the paper by the same name, previously published by Scrivener Publishing, most of the articles in this volume have been revised, and there are some new additions, also, to keep the engineer abreast of any latest and new methods in the industry.
Truly a picture of the state-of-the-art, this revolutionary volume is a must-have for any petroleum engineer working in the field, petroleum engineering students, environmental engineers, and any other engineer or scientist working with hydraulic fracturing.
