This textbook provides the undergraduate as well as the graduate student with an introduction to fundamental problem solving in gas reservoir engineering through practical equations and methods. Although much oil well technology applies to gas wells, many differences exist. This book helps students understand and recognize these differences to enable appropriate handling of gas reservoir problems.


Contents: Properties of natural gas • Fundamentals of gas flow in conduits • Gas flow measurement • Gas flow in wellbores • Fundamentals of fluid flow in porous media • Pressure-transient testing of gas wells • Deliverability testing of gas wells • Design and implementation of gas-well tests • Decline-curve analysis for gas wells • Gas volumes and material-balance calculations • Reservoir simulation • Appendices with calculations and worksheets.
