"A brilliant blend of cutting – edge science, engineering, and real – world applications, Petroleum Rock Mechanics offers a clear and rigorous exposition of the theory and application of rock mechanics form the point of view of the drilling engineer. With the book, drilling engineers find a guide for understanding the stress, strain and the failure mechanics of rock and their response to earth stresses.

The role of rock mechanics in drilling operations and design are highlighted throughout the book. Details of Practical in situ stress changes and how they impact on wellbore and borehole behavior are also included, making this one of most unique books on the subject. With this book in hand, reservoir engineers, drilling engineers, and production engineers find a valuable guide which is packed with necessary tools for immediate field application."


Bernt S. Aadnoy

Bernt Sigve Aadnoy is a professor of the Petroleum Engineering Department at the University of Stavanger in Norway. His industrial experience started early as he worked as a workshop mechanic for 5 years before attending college. He started in the oil industry as trainee for Phillips Petroleum in Odessa, Texas in 1978, and Later worked for Phillips Ekofisk operations in Norway. In 1980 he started working for Rogaland Reserch Institute, where he built a full- scale offshore drilling rig for research purposes. This facility, called Ullrigg, still carries out research both in well technology and in rig automation. Professor Aadnoy is a member of the Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences. He has received numerous awards over the years, including being the 1999 recipient of the SPE International Drilling Engineering Award.
