Format: Hardcover
This book covers the entire area of oilfield chemistry with the exception of drilling, cementing and fracturing chemicals.
The book starts with a discussion of environmental regulations and green chemical alternatives. Individual chapters then include discussions of chemicals proposed and used in:
Water and Gas Control, Scale Control, Asphaltene Control, Acid Stimulation, Sand Control, Naphthenic Acid Scale Control, Production Corrosion Control, Gas hydrate Control, Wax Control, Demulsifiers, Foam, Flocculants, Hydrogen Sulfide Scavengers and Oxygen Scavengers, Biocides and Drag reducing agents.
The emphasis of the discussions is on the chemicals and there are hundreds of chemical structures that illustrate the text. Some very useful information is provided on mechanisms of action and on physical application of the chemicals. The very extensive reference list that accompanies each chapter includes many patent citations (issued as well as applications). This provides a very comprehensive look at the field, but does not necessarily describe the chemicals that are actually being used in the industry.
This book will be very useful for practicing oilfield chemists and those in the industry who need a very deep and broad look at the use of chemicals to control a great number of significant production problems. The author of this review has already used it extensively in his current work.

My comments aresimilar to those of the initial revier. This book presents a good overview of oilfiled production problems. It covers the range of problems in topics ranging from well completion to pipelines. The author presents a description of the chemicals/chemical families that have shown activity for the problem at hand with mechanisms of action when known. Supporting field applications are given. An extensive reference list is given at the end of each chapter.

As a long time production chemist I think that "Production Chemicals for the Oil and Gas Industry" is a must have handbook for roduction chamists and an outstanding reference for all discipline engineers involved in Upstream activities.

This book covers almost every oil field chemicals ans it shows what kind of chemicals are used for each application in details. Tons of books have been published on the oil field chemistry but there are not so many books which explain the chemical structure and the performance relationship like this book. This book gave me lots of new insight and actually I've got several ideas from this book to apply a concept to the different industrial application. I highly recommend this.

this book gives you a lot of information about the oilfield chemicals. More information about corrosion and water treatment should be added. But it is very helpful in general

Hubby is a nerd and needed this for work. It's all good, I like my nerdy hubby. He's really hot. (needed 3 more words but the statement is also true, you're welcome.)
