The Petroleum Engineering Handbook has long been recognized as a valuable, comprehensive reference  that offers practical day-to-day applications for students and experienced engineering professionals alike.  The Petroleum Engineering Handbook is a series of 7 volumes sold individually or as a complete set.


Volume I: General Engineering presents material that is needed by all practicing petroleum engineers. The mathematics covered in the book will help readers to better understand the literature and software they use on a daily basis; other chapters include discussions of fluid and rock properties, as well as essential aspects of the economic and regulatory environment and a brief review of the social context of fossil energy.
