About this book


Petroleomics is the prediction of all properties of petroleum based on the Petroleome, or complete listing of all components in a given crude oil. As it is developed, petroleomics will lead petroleum science into a bright new future, and it is the major focus of this book. A necessary step has been to resolve the molecular size and structure of asphaltene and its hierarchical aggregate structures, as well as the dynamics of asphaltenes. This is especially important for heavy oils. Flow assurance concerns and interfacial science are also treated. The technological development of downhole fluid analysis addresses the most important issues in deepwater production of oil.

Petroleum science and technology are treated in a vertically integrated manner. This book is indispensable for the scientist concerned with petroleum, heavy oils, interfacial science, or flow assurance. Science and technology are treated seamlessly; thus this book will also greatly benefit technologists who are concerned with the production of oil, refining of oil, or heavy oil processing.
