About the Authors
  • 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. The book includes a comprehensive glossary, indexed and fully cross-referenced.

    • Comprehensive coverage of surfactant applications in the petroleum industry
    • Fourth in a successful series of titles (of which first three were published by the ACS before they sold their booklist to Oxford University Press)
    • Introduction to, and illustrations of, the engineering applications of surfactants in real-world petroleum industry processes

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: 'This may be considered as not only one of the best books on the subject but as the first surfactant book focusing on the applications of surfactants in the petroleum industry. The subject has been dealt with such absolute thoroughness that any one from amongst the target audience would like to possess the book. In short the book would be of significance to any aspiring surfactant technologist or newcomer to the petroleum industry wishing for a very applications-oriented treatment of the subject. The entire volume is so laudable as a whole that no criticisms are evident.' Current Engineering Practice
