Modern look at the thermodynamics of hydrocarbon reservoirs

This brilliant, original work offers novel formulations of thermodynamic principles for hydrocarbon reservoirs. The book is packed with valuable step-by-step derivations for retrograde phenomena in capillaries, diffusion and convection, stability and criticality in mixtures, precipitation from complex mixtures, and numerous examples that show in detail how to calculate and apply concepts using the most contemporary techniques.

The book is not only a valuable reference for petroleum and chemical engineers, but can be used by engineers and scientists in different disciplines.
