Oil and gas are the most important non-renewable sources of energy. Exploring, producing and managing these resources in compliance with HSE standards are challenging tasks. New technologies, workflows and procedures have to be implemented.This book deals with some of these themes and describes some of the advanced technologies related to the oil and gas industry from HSE to field management issues. Some new technologies for geo-modeling, transient well testing and digital rock physics are also introduced. There are many more technical topics to be addressed in future books.
This book could never have been written without the help, assistance, and
encouragement of many people. During the research phase, Professor Alex Kemp
and Dr. Richard Perren of the University of Aberdeen gave unstinting help and
advice, while Professor Roger Wootton of the City University was generous with
ideas and sources. Mr. John Westwood of Douglas–Westwood Associates kindly
read the draft.
Eastern Sea of Vietnam is the world's largest semi-open sea and is bounded by archipelagos, islands, mainland and connected partially with Pacific and Indian Ocean. Its total water surface area is about 2,974,600km2. Vietnamese and foreign geoscientists have researched, got samples and mapped the geological map of Eastern Sea since 1960s but no guidance or right method was carried out to map, especially in presenting geological units on geological map.
