PS: It got a mistake in the orifice chapter/lesson.
First - the typos:
The majority of the reviews of this book mentioned typos - as I used the 2nd edition, the number I met with wasn't exorbitant.
The mistakes found where important bracket(s) left out of a derivation step in an equation and quite memorably a problem that very specifically specified an equation with multiple cosines to be calculated in radians which gave ridiculous values: 45 pissed off minutes later found out it was supposed to be in degrees.
So why a 5 star rating?
Despite the typos, this is actually a really great all purpose textbook. The "Joy of Petroleum Engineering" if you will. I ended up using it as a reference frequently for other courses, it's not a huge heavy book so it's pretty convenient to grab out to reference a basic equation or chart. It succinctly covers most main petroleum topics as they pertain to production (MBE, phase behavior, relative phase permeability, well deliverability, well damage, gas properties, skin) without going into extraneous detail.
Classmates complained about it being "unreadable" (we were required to read sections for pre-class work by instructor). What the f*ck? I have yet to find an engineering textbook that reads like Harry Potter.
Good fundamental petroleum engineering text.
Maybe the author will advantage of low oil and pays a couple laid-off engineers peanuts to do clean up the remaining typos.
