oa Fundamentals of Reservoir Rock Properties - 2 edition

image of Fundamentals of Reservoir Rock Properties - 2nd edition

discusses several essential rock properties needed for petroleum engineers and geoscientists. The topics covered are porosity, rock compressibility, permeability, fluid saturation, electrical properties of reservoir rocks, wettability, capillary pressure, and relative permeability. The final chapter integrates all the properties with a discussion on the application. The book covers the topics in a step-by-step fashion with tons of illustrative figures. Each topic is presented clearly with a wide range of illustrations and simplified explanations.

, Assistant Professor in the Petroleum Engineering Department at Texas A&M University at Qatar.

Dr. Nayef Alyafei received his Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering from Imperial College London in 2015 and joined Texas A&M University as a faculty member in 2015. Dr. Alyafei is known for his passion in teaching with a unique teaching style. He received several teaching awards such as Teaching Excellence Award 2019, Faculty of the year 2019, and the Distinguished Achievement College-level Award for Teaching. In addition, he developed an undergraduate technical elective course and made significant curriculum changes to several courses in the department. Dr. Alyafei’s research focuses on multi-phase flow in porous media.


“This excellent text book provides much-needed reference on reservoir rock properties. Dr. Nayef Alyafei has based this work on his own popular lecture courses and his extensive research in multiphase flow in porous media. A wide range of topics is presented clearly with excellent illustrations and explanations throughout. The approach follows an easy-to-follow coherent progression of ideas and is pedagogical in its presentation, making this work ideal as a textbook for undergraduate or post-graduate studies in petroleum engineering, hydrology or related disciplines. The book provides a much needed reference on petrophysics which is also valuable for researchers and professionals working in the oil industry. It is also of interest to the growing body of students, researchers, scientists and engineers working on flow in porous media with a variety of applications from hydrocarbon recovery to carbon dioxide storage. I will certainly recommend this work to my own students and colleagues, and use it in my teaching.”
