Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources: Exploitation and Development


Usman Ahmed, D. Nathan Meehan
June 14, 2016

As the shale revolution continues in North America, unconventional resource markets are emerging on every continent. In the next eight to ten years, more than 100,000 wells and one- to two-million hydraulic fracturing stages could be executed, resulting in close to one trillion dollars in industry s...

Magnesium: From Resources to Production

Hussein K. Abdel-Aal
July 13, 2018

Magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals in seawater. Extracting magnesium from seawater could reduce cost of this mineral, resulting in positive implications for industries that use it. This book addresses mineral process engineering with emphasis on magnesium and provides practicing...

Optimization of Hydraulic Fracture Stages and Sequencing in Unconventional Formations

Ahmed Alzahabi, Mohamed Y. Soliman
July 03, 2018

Shale gas and/or oil play identification is subject to many screening processes for characteristics such as porosity, permeability, and brittleness. Evaluating shale gas and/or oil reservoirs and identifying potential sweet spots (portions of the reservoir rock that have high-quality kerogen...

Green Chemical Engineering: An Introduction to Catalysis, Kinetics, and Chemical Processes

S. Suresh, S. Sundaramoorthy
June 30, 2018

While chemical products are useful in their own right—they address the demands and needs of the masses—they also drain our natural resources and generate unwanted pollution. Green Chemical Engineering: An Introduction to Catalysis, Kinetics, and Chemical Processes encourages minimized use of...

Biomedical Engineering Principles, Second Edition

Arthur B. Ritter, Vikki Hazelwood, Antonio Valdevit, Alfred N. Ascione
June 28, 2018

Current demand in biomedical sciences emphasizes the understanding of basic mechanisms and problem solving rather than rigid empiricism and factual recall. Knowledge of the basic laws of mass and momentum transport as well as model development and validation, biomedical signal processing,...

Fluid Mechanics of Environmental Interfaces, Second Edition

Carlo Gualtieri, Dragutin T. Mihailovic
June 28, 2018

Environmental Fluid Mechanics (EFM) studies the motion of air and water at several different scales, the fate and transport of species carried along by these fluids, and the interactions among those flows and geological, biological, and engineered systems. EFM emerged some decades ago as a response...
