Petroleum Engineering
4 Volumes | 2019 - 2021


The Springer series in Petroleum Engineering promotes and expedites the dissemination of new research results and tutorial views in the field of exploration and production. The series contains monographs, lecture notes, and edited volumes. The subject focus is on upstream petroleum engineering, and coverage extends to all theoretical and applied aspects of the field. Material on traditional drilling and more modern methods such as fracking is of interest, as are topics including but not limited to:

  • Exploration
  • Formation evaluation (well logging)
  • Drilling
  • Economics
  • Reservoir simulation
  • Reservoir engineering
  • Well engineering
  • Artificial lift systems
  • Facilities engineering

Contributions to the series can be made by submitting a proposal to the responsible Springer Editor, Charlotte Cross at or the Academic Series Editor, Dr. Gbenga Oluyemi
