9780521157933: Surfactants: Fundamentals and Applications in the Petroleum Industry

Here is a comprehensive introduction to the highly practical and diverse applications of surfactants within the petroleum industry, detailing their nature, occurrence, physical properties, propagation, and uses. The focus is on the knowledge and practices needed to successfully deal with surfactants in the petroleum production process: in reservoirs, in oil and gas wells, in surface processing operations, and in environmental, health and safety applications. Throughout, important applications of colloid and interface science principles are emphasized and real-world processes and problems are clearly illustrated. The book also includes a comprehensive glossary.

Book Description:

This book provides an introduction to the nature, properties, and uses of 'surfactants' (detergents and soaps) in the petroleum industry. These are very important in many parts of the petroleum production process: in reservoirs, in oliwells, in surface processing operations, and in environmental, health and safety applications. They can be used to make drilling muds more effective, to help displace oil and transport it through underground reservoirs to oil wells, to make or break petroleum industry emulsions or foams, and to treat oilspills.

About the Author:

Prior to joining SRC, Dr. Schramm held a variety of professional and managerial positions with the Alberta Research Council, Petroleum Recovery Institute, and Syncrude Canada Ltd. His main research interests are in the applications of nanotechnology, colloid, interface, and petroleum science. He has received major national awards for his research, and is best known for his basic and applied research involving petroleum industry applications of suspensions, emulsions, foams, and surfactants. He holds 17 patents, has published eight books, over 300 other scientific publications and proprietary reports, and has given over 100 national and international scientific presentations.

This 2000 book provides an introduction to the nature, occurrence, physical properties, propagation and uses of surfactants in the petroleum industry. It is aimed principally at scientists and engineers who may encounter or use surfactants, whether in process design, petroleum production, or research and development. The primary focus is on applications of the principles of colloid and interface science to surfactant applications in the petroleum industry, and includes attention to practical processes and problems. Applications of surfactants in the petroleum industry are of great practical importance and are also quite diverse, since surfactants may be applied to advantage throughout the petroleum production process: in reservoirs, in oil and gas wells, in surface processing operations, and in environmental, health and safety applications. In each case appropriate knowledge and practices determine the economic and technical successes of the industrial process concerned.
