E-books on Petroleum Engineering

Bookmark and Share

May 29, 2010

This time round, I’d like to share some books related to petroleum engineering. There are some of my friends working as lecturers and departmental heads in some technical institutes. They are asking me to share petroleum engineering related books. Today we all are quite lucky that internet can provides a lot of information we need. The only thing we need to know how to find out these resources. This helps people who eager to find out what they wanted to know, but in other way round there will be a big gap between those who are willing to find and not willing to find. I am always saying to my friends that this time is a race of knowledge and information.

Here we go; the first book is Petroleum Engineering Handbook. Here are some descriptions of the book as follow:

Volume I, General Engineering, includes chapters on mathematics, fluid properties (fluid sampling techniques; properties and correlations of oil, gas, condensate, and water; hydrocarbon phase behavior and phase diagrams for hydrocarbon systems; the phase behavior of water/hydrocarbon systems; and the properties of waxes, aspartames, and crude oil emulsions), rock properties (bulk rock properties, permeability, relative permeability, and capillary pressure), the economic and regulatory environment, and the role of fossil energy in the 21st century energy mix.

General Engineering, Volume I of the new Petroleum Engineering Handbook, has been designed to present material that is needed by all practicing petroleum engineers. It includes chapters on mathematics, properties fluids, rock properties, rock/fluid interactions, economics, the law, and the social context of fossil energy.

The mathematics chapters of this volume are a major departure from previous editions. The mathematical tables presented in previous editions are now readily available using hand-held calculators or software on desktop computers.

The mathematics chapters present mathematical topics that petroleum engineers need to better understand literature and the software they use on a day-to-day basis. Topics such as vibrating systems, ordinary and partial differential equations, linear algebra and matrices, and Green’s functions are introduced and references are provided for readers who would like to pursue the topics in more detail.

The discussion of fluid properties covers fluid sampling techniques; properties and correlations of oil, condensate, and water; hydrocarbon phase behavior and phase diagrams for hydrocarbon systems; and the phase behavior of water/hydrocarbon systems. Two chapters consider the properties of waxes, aspartames, and crude emulsions.

Rock properties and rock/fluid interactions are discussed. The rock properties include bulk rock properties, such as porosity, elastic rock properties, and rock failure relationships. Measurement techniques and models of single phase permeability are then presented, followed by a review of the properties that describe the interaction between rocks and fluids, notably relative permeability and capillary pressure.

In addition to mathematics, fluid properties, and rock properties, petroleum engineers need to understand economic and legal issues. Essential aspects of the economic and regulatory environment are addressed in the section. A brief review of the role of fossil energy in the 21st century energy mix ends the volume.


The second book is Working Guide to Petroleum and Natural Gas Production Engineering. As usual, here are some descriptions for the book also.

Based on the classic Standard Handbook of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering, Second Edition, the Working Guide to Petroleum and Natural Gas Production Engineering begins with an extensive overview of the basic principles, definitions, and data. Later chapters cover properties of hydrocarbon mixtures, flow natural flow of fluids, natural flow performance, artificial lift methods and corrosion and scaling. This book provides engineers with a bases for understanding important concepts such a flow phenomena, hydrate formation, pressure (surge) waves, or high viscosity liquid flow failure. The focus of book is to assist the reader to understand and avoid potential operational challenges and design effective solutions and operational responses.

Evaluate well inflow performance
Guide to properties of hydrocarbon mixtures
Evaluate Gas production and processing facilities


The third book is Well Completion Design, Volume 56. Descriptions again:

Completions are the conduit between hydrocarbon reservoirs and surface facilities. They are a fundamental part of any hydrocarbon field development project. The have to be designed for safely maximizing the hydrocarbon recovery from the well and may have to last for many years under ever changing conditions. Issues include: connection with the reservoir rock, avoiding sand production, selecting the correct interval, pumps and other forms of artificial lift, safety and integrity, equipment selection and installation and future well interventions.

Fire Safety : Everybody’s Responsibilities

Bookmark and Share

May 24, 2010

Today, Myanmar people all around the world are watching the sad news on internet that is breaking out of fire at Mingalar Bazzar in central part of Rangoon. According to news, it was said that fire was started from wire-shock (nobody knows; but the most possible point of fire in the area of power tripping was common) and some said from incense stick that was offered to the prayer at the fourth story. Fire engines from most of the townships in old capital, Rangoon were gathered to the place of incident and tried to control fire. Unfortunately, the heart of the fire was on fourth storey and as of difficulties in access to that place helps fire to be able to withstand for about 6 hours.

Regardless of whatever reasons, fire was broke out already. In this point of time, nothing to do with blaming here, blaming there. It was too late to do fire safety for this particular building that fire was already on. So, what shall we do? We have to find the weakness in the past, the lessons given to us by these huge damages. So, how shall it be better if every individuals in our environment to understand fire preventive measures and fire safety awareness when fire was broken out?

Every individual should have fire safety concern in their mind whatever they are doing; then the whole community is automatically set up the best fire preventive measure already. How we can achieve the goals of understanding of fire safety and preventive techniques in mind for every individual in community? The first person will be me and the next person will be you. We study fire safety issues first, and try to spread out these matters as much as we can, one day, every individual in our community will have safety concern to fire.

Don’t play, play. Fire is the best friend when we use in proper way and the worst enemy when we are not using it in correct way.

OK. Here are some engineering books concerning to fire safety. It will helpful to Civil engineers and other interested people also.


The first book is Fire Safety Engineering – Design of Structures which is an essential resource on the design and performance of common structural materials when they are exposed to fire - including major coverage of the new Euro codes.

Fire Safety Engineering: Design of Structures provides the knowledge needed to design a structure which will withstand the effects of fire.

The book covers everything from design concerns and philosophies, regulatory control, the behavior characteristics of natural fires through to the properties of different materials at elevated temperatures.

Focusing on the fire sections of the Structural Euro codes, the book provides detailed design advice on each of the main structural elements such as concrete, steel, composite steel-concrete, timber, and masonry, aluminum, plastics and glass.

J. A Purkiss, Consultant, previously lectured Structural Engineering at Aston University. His main areas of research were the behavior of concrete, concrete composite materials and concrete structures at elevated temperatures, the experimental determination of the effects of spilling and its modeling using coupled heat and mass transfer, the determination of the characteristics of fire damaged concrete structures.

  • Design methods based on the fire sections of the new Structural Euro codes
  • Worked calculations and examples clearly illustrate the effect of temperature rise and structural performance of structural elements
  • Essential reading for Structural Engineers, Building Designers, Architects, Fire Engineers and Building Control Officers


The second one is Introduction to Fire Safety Management. Andrew Furness and Martin Muckett give an introduction to all areas of fire safety management, including the legal framework, causes and prevention of fire and explosions, fire protection measures, fire risk assessment, and fire investigation. Fire safety is not treated as an isolated area but linked into an effective health and safety management system.

Introduction to Fire Safety Management has been developed for the NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management and is also suitable for other NVQ level 3 and 4 fire safety courses. The text is highly illustrated in full color, easy to read and supported by checklists, report forms and record sheets. This practical approach makes the book a valuable reference for health and safety professionals, fire officers, facility managers, safety reps, managers, supervisors and HR personnel in companies, as well as fire safety engineers, architects, construction managers and emergency fire services personnel.

Andrew Furness CFIOSH, GIFireE, Dip2OSH, MIIRSM, MRSH, is Managing Director of Salvus Consulting Limited who specialize in Fire Safety. He was the chairman of the NEBOSH / IOSH working party that developed the NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management certificate.

Martin Muckett MA, MBA, CMIOSH, MIFireE, Dip2OSH, former Principal Health and Safety Advisor to The Fire Service Inspectorate and Principal Fire Safety Officer, Martin is currently Salvus Consulting Limited's Senior Fire Safety Trainer / Consultant.

  • Fully covers the syllabus for the NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management
  • Student-friendly presentation in full color packed with illustrations and photographs
  • Includes a summary of legislation relevant to fire safety, ideal as a reference for students as well as practitioners

Go for Your Goals (Smart Tapes)
By : Michael Podolinsky (Author)

Publisher: Oasis Audio 2000-06 |
ISBN: 1556780567 |
Language: English | Audio Cassette in MP3 | 13 MB

Podolinsky's style is not at all didactic or 'lecture hall' instruction. With attractive personal style, he taught me the difference between stating a wish or dream, and WRITING clear goals -- goals that I'll use to measure my progress and build my successes. I'm squirming because of his insistence that I include rewards and punishments as one way of keeping myself motivated. But even I - a person raised in a guilt-powered family - can embrace discipline the way Podolinsky outlines it. In our company, we've already employed his lessons, and they've been warmly received and acted upon. I'm receiving reports of "hey, this works!" and "you mean I'm allowed to schedule a life for myself?!" [Yes, folks, finding a balance between personal and professional goals is a whole chapter in this tiny book.] What a gem "Go for Your Goals" turned out to be! K.L. Eckhardt, President, CommWare Technologies, Inc.

မိုးနတ္သား ထြက္ပါလတ္ @ Please Come Up Angel of Rain

Bookmark and Share

May 17, 2010

This year, it is quite late monsoon winds to come in to Myanmar, it resulted water shortage in most of the places in Myanmar. It is the most distinct year in this decade that temperature high up until over 40 degree Celsius  in a lot of places including old capital of Myanmar. Hopefully, third or fourth week of May, monsoon winds can come in, otherwise there will be a big trouble for people in Myanmar.

For Mgluaye, it was like an old story because I was experienced water shortage since childhood. Same timing, somewhere in month of May, people from my native town had to face same problem. All the ponds and lakes used for main water supply for us are dried and we have to go far away from town to fetch water.

When I was teenage, people from the town including my parents organized to set up water supply system for the town. There was a big lake formed naturally by ranges of mountains at north of the town. They had to lay concrete pipes and built up separate wells in each quarter that allow people to fetch water nearby.

It can solve a big problem that usually faced every year, but sometime that big lake also dried and lowered water level in summer. At this point of time, we have no other way than to go that lake and fetch water by ourselves.

There was a song we usually sung while we faced hot summer and late monsoon. It was “Moe Nat Thar Htwak Par Lat” means “Please Come Up Angel of Rain”. Now here is that song sung by famous singer of Arakan, Khine Myat Mun.

Have fun by listening and let’s pray “Angel of rain to come up.”

Wi-Fi Toys: 15 Cool Wireless Projects For Home, Office, And Entertainment

Bookmark and Share

May 13, 2010

In my childhood days, there was no internet yet. Television and radios were the most advanced communication devices. And that time, I usually had read several books like Thate Pan (Science) Magazines and Thu Ta Swe Zone (Wikipedia) from my school library and too interested in radio and television broadcasting and receiving technologies. But, as of I was living in country side, and there were nobody who could teach me such subjects and did not have books to study such kind of subject, the result was that my hobbies were not properly grown up.

By that time, there was only one TV channel in Burma, MRTV and it usually transmitted in the evening only. We can receive those signals in the evening only. One day, I tried to build my homemade television antenna which can receive satellite signal. I took old 7/029 cables and removed the insulations to get copper wires only. When I got a few numbers of copper wires of about 1 meter length, I tried to make it mesh look alike to satellite receiver dish. I took one 7/044 cable and take out copper wire and put it in the middle of the mesh as I saw on most of the LNBs. Rear part of my own receiver dish, I took one small tin and tied it nicely. Ok. Its appearance was quite similar to the satellite receiver already.

My next step was to find out long bamboo because I needed it to put it higher in the air. Usually there were a few long bamboos with flap and hooks in every house in country side which meant for fire preventive measures, so that I could use that bamboo in my project. I tied my receiving antenna at the top of that bamboo and connect the antenna with old, long coaxial cable to connect to my B/W television in my living room. Installing my antenna was done. Next step was to tune the television frequencies. I turned my TV on and tried to tune. It was a lucky day that I could receive TV signals from neighbor country, Bangladesh. They were transmitting sport channels; I could even watch the football matches even though it was not so clear. But, as of lack of knowledge of electronic engineering, I didn't know how to boast signals, how to filter and reduce noise, how to make antenna more efficient, my own satellite antenna project was ended up in that stage.

The morale of the my own story is that there were a lot of things we want to create, we want to try in our childhoods, but as of lack of support and guidance that can give us a hand to move ahead, our dreams and ideas were faded away. One of my friends who I met in high school, he also tried too much to build up own helicopter in his home. He had collected so many books regarding to that subject and he even built up own toy airplane that can run very fast on the horizontal plane. He used dc motors from walkman cassette player as engine for airplane’s propellers. He tried several times, but his airplane run very fast on the horizontal level, cannot go up to the air. The problem was that the running speed produced by the motor cannot lift up its own weight into the air. Finally, he gave up. The final conclusion is that the normal dc motor won’t be able to use as propeller engine if we want airplane to fly up.

Today, we can see some toy helicopters with DC motor that can go up into the air; I thought that the motor assembly will be different from the ordinary dc motor. Now he was working as seaman already. His dream was to be an aeronautical engineer but ended up with the seaman profession.

Until now, sometime we are trying to play with such kinds of electronic equipments in our environment. I hope that some of my friends will also like to play around like this. For those who want to play, this book is for you.

Here is a book named "Wi-Fi Toys", you all can modified the existing Wi-Fi equipments in your home by yourself. Here is a short description of the book.
