Formulas and Calculations for Petroleum Engineering unlocks the capability for any petroleum engineering individual, experienced or not, to solve problems and locate quick answers, eliminating non-productive time spent searching for that right calculation. Enhanced with lab data experiments, practice examples, and a complimentary online software toolbox, the book presents the most convenient and practical reference for all oil and gas phases of a given project. Covering the full spectrum, this reference gives single-point reference to all critical modules, including drilling, production, reservoir engineering, well testing, well logging, enhanced oil recovery, well completion, fracturing, fluid flow, and even petroleum economics.
- Presents single-point access to all petroleum engineering equations, including calculation of modules covering drilling, completion and fracturing
- Helps readers understand petroleum economics by including formulas on depreciation rate, cashflow analysis, and the optimum number of development wells

Cenk Temizel is a reservoir engineer with 15 years of experience in the industry on reservoir simulation, smart fields, heavy oil, optimization, geomechanics, integrated asset modeling, unconventionals and enhanced oil recovery at Aera Energy LLC (a Shell-ExxonMobil Affiliate) in Bakersfield; Schlumberger and Halliburton in the Middle East, the US and the UK. He was a teaching/research assistant at the University of Southern California and Stanford University before joining the industry.
He won the 2nd place at SPE Global R&D Competition at SPE ATCE 2014 in Amsterdam and the 2nd place in Technical Excellence Awards at 22nd World Petroleum Congress in 2017 in Istanbul. He received the Halliburton Award in Innovation in 2012. He serves as a technical reviewer for petroleum engineering journals. His interests include reaction kinetics/dynamics of fluid flow in porous media and enhanced oil recovery processes. He served as a session chair and member of organizing committees for several SPE conferences.
He has published more than 75 publications in the area of reservoir management, production optimization, enhanced oil recovery processes and smart fields along with US patents. He holds a BS degree (Honors) from Middle East Technical University - Ankara (2003) and an MS degree (2005) from University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles, CA both in petroleum engineering.
Tayfun Tuna is a data scientist and software developer who holds a MS and a PhD Degree in Computer Science from the University of Houston. His graduate research focus was on text mining; applying machine learning techniques to lecture videos in order to segment video content for a better learning experience. He is a co-founder of Videopoints LLC, previously known as ICS Video Project, an interactive educational video platform which have been used more than 50K users across multiple university campuses. While he was the chief operating officer and principal investigator his project is rewarded by National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research (NSF SBIR) Phase I Grant.
In his professional career, Tayfun has worked with Halliburton to develop a patented machine learning based web based interface that predicts chance of getting of stuck while drilling for oil. Tayfun Tuna has two patents and 20 research paper publications on educational technology, social networks and oil&gas field.
