Development of Volcanic Gas Reservoirs: The Theory, Key Technologies and Practice of Hydrocarbon Development introduces the geological and dynamic characteristics of development in volcanic gas reservoirs, using examples drawn from the practical experience in China of honing volcanic gas reservoir development. The book gives guidance on how to effectively develop volcanic gas reservoirs and similar complex types of gas reservoir. It introduces basic theories, key technologies and uses practical examples. It is the first book to systematically cover the theories and key technologies of volcanic gas reservoir development.
As volcanic gas reservoirs constitute a new research area, the distribution and rules for development still being studied. Difficulties in well deployment and supportive development technology engender further challenges to development. However, in the past decade, research and development in the Songliao and Junggar Basins has led to marked achievements in volcanic gas reservoir development.
- Introduces the theory, key technologies and practice of volcanic gas reservoir development
- Provides links between theory and practice, highlighting key technologies for targeted development
- Offers guidance on complex issues in volcanic gas reservoir development
