"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."
