Gas Reservoir Engineering - John Lee, Robert Wattenbarger

Natural Gas production has become increasingly importan in the U.S., and the wellhead revenue generated from it is now greater than the wellhead revenue generated from oil production. Because this trend eventually will be followed worldwide, we feel that is important emphasize gas reservoir engineering courses at the undergraduate level and to have a textbook devoted to this purpose. This book also serves as an introduction to gas reservoir engineering for graduates students and practicing petroleum engineering.

We wrote this book at a time  of greate change in the computational methods used by petroleum engineers. Most calculations arising frequently are done with computers and either commercial software packages or spreadsheets written by the engineer or an associate.
